Open Quote My boys had a great year at Pfluger. My oldest finally passed STAAR. He was so proud and worked so hard. We loved their teachers. We love the front office and all that work there. It is a terrific school. I am glad to see that Pfluger is one of the highest ranked schools in Hays and ranked so high in the state. Close Quote

Open Quote Pfluger is working hard to ensure that our students are growing in so many ways: academically, socially, emotionally, and global citizens. The amazing parents and teachers are making this happen every day. #wheregreatmindssoar! Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter goes here & while we've had hit or miss experiences with her teachers, overall it's a good school. The new principal made several administrative changes, added STEM programs, etc. that seem to be taking off. It's not the best elementary school I've ever seen, but if you judge by the State test performances , happiness/behavior of the kids & overall teacher engagement it is definitely worth more than it's current 2 rating 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.
