    "I teach at Dripping Springs, and it is a wonderful school! The expectations for staff are high, but they need to be if we want our kids to compete in a global world! We work together to make great things happen! There is a strong sense of family and teamwork on our campus, and it is a precious school!"

    "I completely agree that DSES is the best school and has the most amazing teachers and principals! We have been in Dripping Springs for years, and this is the best year my children have ever had at school! The Leader in Me that the principal has implemented with her team is outstanding! Most importantly, it is a wonderful feeling knowing that my kids are well taken care of and loved during the day by teachers and administrators!"

    "The principal, Mrs. Hassell is an amazing person and educator. She always makes her decisions based on what is best for kids and loves the children dearly. Each morning she greets them with a smile and has such a big heart! I really feel that the community may need to look in the mirror- as this is the third principal DSES has had in just 5 years! She has made such a positive difference on the campus and she has high expectations for students and staff, giving our kids wonderful opportunities. Our school is making great progress under her leadership and our test scores are higher than ever! She has brought innovation, creativity and leadership to the campus. The staff is amazing also and they do a great job giving our students a wonderful learning environment, too! DSES is the best!"

    "Don't let all these older reviews fool you! This school has the poorest of staffing and teaching tactics! My kids are doing the poorest they have ever done due to the new curriculum brought out this year, the teachers have no clue what they are teaching either!! They are like sitting ducks in a pond when it comes to understanding the information coming out of their mouths to teach the students!! The principal is awful, doesn't ever seem to come out of her cave, only to open her mouth and say horrible things to parents that have opinions or concerns. It's a world wind of drama at that school and I will be removing my kids ASAP!!"

    "The current principal is Tricia Hassell. She took office July 1, 2013. Her former position was Principal of Browning Elementary School in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Tricia has created an administrative culture which fosters fear among the teaching staff and alienation of the parents. Interestingly, her former school feedback on this website is very similar. This is a pattern in her career, and it has caught up to her again -- this time, we hope that her tenure is much shorter. Signed, James Bisett"
