    "We moved into the district about a month before school started, and my daughter has now completed over half of her 6th grade year at Small. She's very happy. She's in the Gifted and Talented program and feels like she's being challenged enough to stay interested, but not so much that it takes over her life. The 6th grade counselor has been wonderful, the principal responded to an email question very quickly and thoroughly, and the teachers have all come across quite reasonably when we've interacted. Oh, and the GT coordinator has taken plenty of time to explain the program and allay our fears (we came from an academic magnet school in Seattle). The proof for us is that our daughter is happy on her way to school and happy when she arrives home. I asked her about bullying, and she says she hasn't noticed anything. So that may be an issue in certain circles, but hasn't affected us. Hopefully it never will."

    "Just feel the need to respond to the previous review. Academics mean nothing if there is so much bullying and drama that your kid cannot concentrate on their work. Discipline, rules, etc have to come first. The improvement I've seen in my child's grades since leaving small is remarkable."

    "Because of my husbands work, we unfortunately moved around a lot. My son attended 4 different junior highs and is now in his senior year (he's doing Connexus online public school - which has been a God send - highly recommend it). We were talking about the best and worst schools he went to the other day and he said Patton Elementary (attended for 3 years) and Small JH (he attended for 1 year) were the best. He said he was actually challenged academically there. He also spoke highly of Pillow Elementary in North Austin. My point is, Small may have it's issues, but compared to other schools it's at the top of the list."

    "Clint small is a terrible school. From the staff that does nothing to the rotten spoiled kids. Besides a few friends my daughter hated it at small. The staff from counselor to principle tells you what you want to hear right then and then nothing gets done about any issues. Bullying runs rampant in this school and nothing is ever done to fix it. They intervene that day and the next it's forgotten about unless of course the parent is up there and calling constantly. To many teacher and staff kids that go here and think they run the school bc their parents either work here or at Patton. It seems the same rules for all students to do apply to these kids. We lived in district before my daughter was even in school and had friends with their kids at Patton elementary and small. Heard great things. So when my daughter was old enough we moved back in district. She went to Patton and loved it. Once she got to small everything went downhill, from grades to behavior. I have a younger child at Patton now and there is absolutely no way she will ever step foot in small middle school without a complete staff overhaul."

    "This is my third year at small. It's amazing how half the teachers are extremely helpfull and the other half have no intrist in most of the kids. My peers are very two-faced. At least via my experience. They need to change the staff. No one can do anything about the students attitudes'. I loved Mrs. V, Mrs. Brown, and Mrs. Smith out of my core classes. I hated advanced theatre with Mrs. Hall. She was very negative to my group and it was stressful. Cheer wasn't that fun because everyone grouped off, but the beginning of this year has been great with this group. I think it will be a great year though. Honestly, I'm just scared of this years teacher, even though I've heard half of them are great."
