we're very satisfied with the level of experience, care and nurturing we found in our daughter's kindergarten teacher. and apparently, that's the norm with this school district. the teachers are high-quality. my daughter learned at a reasonable pace, maybe even a little ahead of other districts. our school system is not bussed; so i didn't have to stress over her going on a school bus at such a young age. the high school has a mentoring program whereby some of the varsity football players come and spend time with the k-3 grades. it's thrilling for the kids to see the "stars" in their school and classes, reading to them. this is a small-town atmosphere but has been active in recruiting good teachers. plus, the teachers live here in the area. that's a bonus: my daughter got to see her teacher while out trick or treating, during our annual festival and at the grocery store. that doesn't happen in big cities. parental participation is encouraged and appreciated. on top of that, the prinicpal at grimes elementary is top notch. miss bass is professional but warm. i've seen her be "tough" when she needs to be, but at most other times, is walking through the halls with a beautiful smile on her face. i wouldn't want any other woman or man leading our school. what a terrific person.

PROS: great location, nice size school, good academic programs
CONS: maybe the community is outgrowing this school, too?
