    "This school used to be great, but there are now over 1300 kids in the school. Do not send your kids to this school unless you want to indoctrinate them to jailhouse life or military school. They are barely allowed to whisper at lunch, recess has been cut, and then the teachers wonder why the kids are getting marks every day. We've sent three kids through this school. It was great for the older two, but I thank goodness my youngest is in fifth grade and we will no longer have to deal with this insanity. And Katy ISD has no plans to rezone anyone to help with the overcrowding. I feel for the families that have years left. Why is this school at 130% of capacity and the adjacent school at 80%? The district hasn't answered that question for us yet, though we've asked repeatedly."

    "We have had some great teachers at Rylander, and met some great parents. However, the size is ridiculous, and I don't believe the district has any plans to relieve this campus. The traffic situation for example is out-of-control, completely disorganized and with people not following the prescribed directions whatsoever! Not to mention traffic on Westheimer Pkwy zooms through there with no regard for school speeds, likewise no regard for a herd of young children walking along the sidewalk, not two feet away from the road, traveling to the fire station. I'm also concerned that when going off campus on field trips etc., adults are not asked to Raptor in (the security/background scan), even though they are with students all day. And the back of the school is really unsecured, with no gates to be locked or even closed, so that the multiple portable buildings, kids going to recess and so forth are not secured. The portables are slightly awful anyway, virtually un-climatized, and then students have to take a key and a buddy to travel to the main (locked and secured) building every time they need to use the restroom. Supposed-to-be-temporary buildings are a poor long-term "fix.""

    "We move frequently (through multiple states) and Rylander has been by far the best school my children have attended. The teaching staff is amazing, along with their administration. One of my children has multiple learning disabilities and at other schools she was shunned by teachers and labeled a trouble maker, at Rylander she was loved, and flurished."

    "My experience at Rylander has been quite different from the other reviews. I volunteered there all year and saw things that really call for change. First of all, the school is overcrowded, which I understand is unavoidable at this time, but because of it's large size the school is run military style. The kids are to be seen and not heard. When I joined my son for lunch it was tough to watch kids being scolded non-stop for every little thing. The front desk staff is rude, unhelpful and I witnessed them berate children. Remember where you work and that you have an impact on these kids. Learn some patience and respect. Lastly, 15-20 minutes of recess is unacceptable, especially when you expect children to be calm and quiet all day. I've come up with a few different solutions to the playground dilemma, so there is no excuse. The one positive was my sons teacher. She was great and made the year bearable."

    "I went to Rylander from 2005-2009, K-4th (switched to homeschooling), and was an amazing school. Most of my teachers were kind and all of them were well trained. I did very well (exculding Kindergarden) and loved it. The lunches were great. Now, like any school, it comes with some social problems and proto-cliques, but all schools do. The staff have made sure that bullying is not a problem, and were only a few unkind kids. Best school i've ever been to."
