Open Quote I did like this school but unfortunately grew to not like the school nor the staff that run it. I have dealt with issues concerning my child and Pharr staff have done nothing to help him. If you are a parent with a child with ADHD demand an IEP or 504 before its too late, the staff WILL NEVER request it and they have dropped the ball when it came to advising and providing assistance for my son. I had to end up pulling him out of the school because they lack the resource and ability to provide help when help was needed. The school lacks support for children in need, instead the continue to write him up and reprimand him for things he can't help. I am disgusted with the way Pharr have dealt with my son and his issues throughout the years. Close Quote

Open Quote I absolutely love this school. My daughter has attended since first grade (going into the fifth grade) and we have had fantastic teachers and the faculty is great. The principal takes time to work with the student council and is very approachable to the kids. We will miss Pharr when we go to middle school! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
