    "Durham is full of caring, smart, and educated teachers. I am at teacher myself there, and see great work being done. I see teaching and learning taking place that is very similar/compatible to "top ranked" Houston elementary schools I have visited. If our ranking is lower because we service lower income students and ones that have a high mobility rate, that should not be counted against us. Look at the GROWTH in the students. It's high. The relationship/mentorship some of these teachers have with these students is humbling. And with being a new IB World School and having a supportive admin team, there are some great programs/plans for our future."

    "My school is a great neighborhood and community resource, filled with caring teachers, dedicated staff, willing students, and involved parents. It is constantly improving under the guidance of a new principal and has just become an International Baccalaureate Program school."

    "I am very proud of our little neighborhood school and am happy to send my child there. Our newly authorized IB program (which has been in practice for over three years) is making this school more in demand than ever before. After several years of turmoil we have finally found a principal that is a great fit and who is 100% committed to our school. This current "3" rating is not reflective of it AT ALL."

    "This is a neighborhood school that is only getting better and better. Though it has had problems with principal turnover, the current principal has a vision for Durham's future and the necessary forethought to get the school there. I will also add that the school won IB World School status this year, after years of planning and hard work by teachers and the IB Coordinator. This ensures that the school is on the right track - teaching best practices, helping students learn about the larger world across the curriculum, encouraging creativity and flexibility. New technology has also been entering the school and the children are doing fun and imaginitive work on the computer. With a fantastic full time art teacher next year, mandarin classes, and a fantastic PE teacher, I feel like they pay attention to my daughter, not just as a student and funding source, but as a kid they like and want to encourage in all aspects of academics, creativity, social actions, and health. We've been a happy family in our neighborhood school."
