Open Quote We moved from gpisd to hisd and this school is in district of where we live. The staff is unproductive in doing what needs to be done for the students. I have had to come to the school three times the two weeks my children have been there to make sure their learning needs are met. I highly would not recommend this school to parents who come from a better school district as we did. Close Quote

Open Quote There's no continuity in administration or in the teaching staff. the school hours are way too long, the schedule changes constantly, there are too many standardized tests. The school only teaches students for ONE reason - to pass the STARR test. The school keeps difficult students long after they demonstrate misconduct, truancy, and other issues that would have students expelled from other schools. Those students harm the education of our babies who want to learn. Teachers are stressed out and constantly wanting to leave the district, and the students can see this. The school gives students computers only if they pay, and then they never use them because some parents cannot afford the computers, and we don't really want our students carrying something home everyday that may attract harm or theft. The computers should have been left in the schools with the teachers. There is no school spirit, there is bullying, widespread drug use, and students have no lockers, cannot carry water into the classroom, can't have a backpack unless it's seethru, and the building is falling apart. Basically the environment is poor for everyone. Big changes are needed. Close Quote

It is multicultural and that's what makes is unique. 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.
