  • My son attended the Pre-K PLC 2 day a week class and the teacheer was HORRIBLE!!!! Not just to mine. An example, on my son's last day (this was the last straw), one of the little boys came in with his blankie (security obviously) and the teacher said "You need to put that away, I don't even want to THINK about your blanket today". It was one of the most hateful things I had ever witnessed an educated teacher say to a student.

  • My children are new to this school and i find that they are NOT learning anything. The Texas school that they use to attend was a Texas Honor Roll School and named one of the tops elementary schools in Texas. There have been T.E.A recognized since that school opened. I feel the teachers are not giving any knowledge to these young minds. Elementary is where the children learn how to read, write and etc. What can this school do to change my mind. I ask my children what they learned every school day and they "Not Much", then they tell me they would like to learn more but they are not being taught enough.
