    "This school went from hero to zero with the new administration. Dr. Barrera and Ms. Thomson were fantastic! He was outside every morning greeting every student and every parent. He inspired confidence and pride in the school. His kindness and understanding an support were amazing. I could go on and on. A new administration has taken over and the only thing the new principal seems noted for is chatting about her new dress with other teachers in the hall. It really is that bad. And this school has a ton of ESL kids and the new principal doesn't seem to speak Spanish or try and connect with the kids and make them feel like they belong. I'm not even sure why she was chosen over the then assistant principal Ms. Thompson to replace Dr. Barrera because she seems to have very very little experience. Poor choice. In addition the interim assis. principal has been seen yelling at the kids in the office, telling the 'to sit down and I will deal with you later'. Really appalling turn about from the attitude of kindness and concern that motivated the administrators before. Office staff is still top-notch but I'm so sorry for them."

    "My children went to Purple Sage when we moved back from Lubbock in the mid-80s. I volunteered during my military convalescence and was struck by the personal commitment of the teachers and their associated staff. I've been associated with the school as a volunteer tutor since 2005. This school has gotten better every year. The best is this year, with Dr. Arnoldo Barrera as principal."

    "I was a bit concerned that PS wouldn't be as good as Spicewood, but boy was I wrong. Class sizes are smaller and my kiddos get extra hands-on attention. I'm so happy my kids are going to a smaller school."

    "Recognized status and moving up! This smaller sized school offers great student/teacher ratios, experienced teachers, and a true sense of community. PS gives both of my children the individualized education that they require. The art, music and TAG teachers are exceptional and the dual language program is a fantastic opportunity for both native Spanish and English speakers and a good alternative to the AP campuses in the district. The middle school and high school (one of the best rated in the nation) are in close proximity, making it convenient for a large family."

    "My son has gone to Purple Sage for almost 2 years now, kindergarten and 1st grade. I am shocked at how the teachers and administrators quit on a student that is having a hard time. We have done everything that they asked us to do, and they have done nothing that has been asked of them. I am appalled at the lack of communication and lackadaisical attitude of the teachers at this school. I would recommend finding a school with teachers and administrators that actually care about the kids that they are in charge of. I gave them a one rating only because it would not let me give them a lower score."
