    "Patsy Sommer is an Awesome school. The parents are super engaged with the school and kids... The whole school seems like a very large but close knit family. Most teachers are good and have stayed with the school for a while, which is a great thing given the fact that several new schools have come-up and good teachers are in great demand... The 5th grade teachers do a great job of preparing kids for the Middle school... I was apprehensive how my kid would fare in the middle school, but with the prep work in elementary (thanks to the teachers), middle school has been a cakewalk for us so far. I would highly recommend this school..."

    "Folks, this is NOT a great school. Nancy Varljen is no longer new yet is still terrible. She seems more interested in her pet projects, pushing her own agenda, than insuring learning is taking place. As a result, enrichment programs offered at most schools are no longer offered at PS. Poor, last minute hires are still resulting in some unimpressive new teachers. And the fact that miserably poor teachers , like Julie Davis, are being retained is frankly disturbing. For example, despite countless parent complaints, Julie Davis continues to be highly disorganized, has great difficulty communicating effectively with parents, she exhibits no classroom control which is needed to foster an effective learning environment, & her children are consistently the last ones to learn their sight words - if they even do at all! I personally know multiple parents who've complained about her & even asked to have their children removed from her classroom, and yet both the previous & current prinical's have allowed this lousy teacher to remain employed. For years!! As long as RRISD continues to employ sub-standard teachers & administrators, Sommer remains over-rated, highly disappointing hype."

    "Mrs. Julie Davis and the principle should find different employment. My child was here for 7 weeks too long."

    "I have loved every teacher that my children have had at Patsy Sommer, and Mr. Pratz did a great job. Since he left and Ms Varljen took over it has gone down hill. We have lost several teachers each year because they are not fond of her either. She always has an excuse, and nothing is ever her "fault" . The ratings will go down soon, because all she cares about are the students who are way ahead. I have both kind of students, and she has been a nightmare for the one who struggles a bit. People are talking about petitioning to get rid of her, and I will be the first to sign."

    "Have been very disappointed with this school and its principal. She says she has an open door, but does not listen to any of our concerns about our child. She doesn't care about any requests that are made and will do things her way regardless what is best for the child."
