Open Quote If you want your child to be bilingual this is the school for you. My daughter has only had a semester and she is already speaking conversational Spanish. It's amazing how little kids can transfer language skills. At school reading and writing practice is in Spanish but at home she has started writing letters to her grandparents in English (and we did not teach her to write). Of course she tries to spell things phonetically which doesn't work out as well in English as it does in Spanish but we are still impressed with what her wizard of a teacher has accomplished. The entire school is energized by a very supportive PTA and an excellent principal. There are many extracurricular activities including a few sports for the older kids, a Suzuki violin program and clubs. Communication is clearly a priority of the administration. We regularly get notes home from both teachers and administrators updating us on what is going on as well as recorded messages announcing events and texted reminders about things like returning library books or "wear your college t-shirt day." I've also received several personal texts from my daughters teacher as well as a personal phone call. Close Quote

Open Quote I just enrolled my child for the first time. The office staff was very rude and it seems like this is a school for spanish speaking only. I'm very anxious about my child's education for this year. Close Quote

Open Quote My children just completed their third year at Sanger, and it was great! The dual language program is wonderful. The PTA is strong and active. The teachers and principles really care. The learning garden is beautiful. The sports teams are winners. We really love our school, and can't wait for the next school year! Close Quote

Open Quote We love Sanger Elementary. Our daughter has been there two years and I am impressed by all the things she is learning. Mr. Martinez is our new principal and has been welcoming to parents and volunteers and making changes for the better. There is so much there to be proud of. As our parent involvement grows I know our test scores will also come up. Close Quote

Open Quote The principal (Dr. Arthur Allen) is very rude to parents and staff. Teachers live in constant fear that the principal will visit their classroom and disrupt the class with very negative comments about the students or teachers. They are forced to teach only the subjects and material that will be tested in the TAKS, providing a very limited and insuficient education to our kids 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.
