    "Kendall Arnold is the most reliable teacher and supportive of her students. She is conscientious and cares for those children in her tutelage."

    "I cannot believe the parent reviews on this page. Do you know where you live? Of course Widen is going to have rough kids in it. You live in the ghetto! Did you expect something different? As far as blaming the teachers, that needs to stop. Those poor teachers are trying to do their job in a war zone in southeast Austin. Take care of your business as a parent and get a good job. Move to an area that's a little classier."

    "like the other parents my daughter was in the pre-k program in 2009 and was bullied hit and harassed and had things stolen from her including her lunch money ..]] on a daily bases the worst part the teacher never told me my daughter would tell me and then i would have to ask the teacher who would then laugh it off as kids being kids, i had talks to both the teacher and Principal but nothing ever come of it, the administration was down right RUDE when i tried to talk to them about any issue .... the language of the children even in pre-k was horrible and this was in front of the teacher , who acted as if nothing out of the ordinary had occurred.. of course that was when she was there my daughter had in the few short month's she was there 7 subs... and the other parents were just as bad i had a lady threaten me in the parking lot while i was pregnant needless to say after about 3 month's i pulled her out and home schooled her.."

    "I was very disappointed with this school (2009). My daughter was being harassed. I spoke to the Vice Principle; I thought this would put a stop to it. Well it didn t I had to go two more times before it was taken care. The Principle had not even heard of the problem. At the play ground you would not believe your ears the students swear as if it that s what is taught in the class room. I also moved from Del Valle and there is a rule, they don t tolerance bulling. The teachers their will work with you to help out with your child needs. Think twice before moving your child to this school."

    "My daughter started Widen in the Spring of 09 after we left Del Valle. I must say I was very disappointed. My daughter flourished at Del Valle and always received high behavior marks. At Widen she was on yellow, orange, and red everyday with no notes as to why. Her teacher was frustrated and disgruntled each time I spoke with her. She said the class was troublemakers! They are in kindergarten they are not suppose to be perfect. Additionally I only received information about events the day before or after which was very frustrating. The teacher sent home tons of homework (daily, weekly, monthly and a reading log). I got a note one day that said my daughter had been CHOKED on the playground by a boy and it was HER FAULT because she was chasing them. The note suggested she not play with boys anymore. We are leaving this district."
