    "ONE OF THE BEST- I had 3 children went to this school for almost 2 years. I have had at least one child in every grade from pre-k to 4th grade. I loved this school and my children did as well. The teachers are all really great and parents are definitely involved in the school. The kids are rewarded for achievements with awards assemblies and attend-dances. My kids did not want to miss a day of school so they could go to the attend-dance. They also have enrichment groups where they get to pick an activity and go once a week to participate in things like cheerleading, pets, and duck tape design. All the teachers have been loving, caring, and open to meeting with or calling or emailing me when I have questions or concerns. I have no idea how this school rates a 6. I have had my kids in schools from Arizona to Maryland because of the military and this is one of the best. My oldest child came into this school advanced and scored that on the Texas standardized tests and has maintained it throughout our 1.5 years here. I have no idea what other people are complaining about. We are moving this summer and my children and I are sad to leave this school behind."

    "I read a review below and it was pretty funny and very far from the truth. I have both of my kids at this school and I have a good experience and communication with their teachers. The kids sometimes do stay inside due to inclement weather and do like that they do this so my kids don't get sick. Kids no being able to talk during lunch are you kidding me, have you ever been there during lunch? They actually encourage you to go eat lunch with your kid and I do so almost every Friday. I have no complaints about this school whatsoever."

    "Skipcha is a great school with dedicated teachers and a very active PTA which results in enthused students who are progressing above average."

    "This school is great! Reading the negative comments are comical. Parents talking about incorrect grammar from the staff yet not utilizing it in their reviews. I fully believe some people would not be happy anywhere. The school has a system that has been perfected. This system may not be obvious to those who occasionally visit the school or perhaps the kids themselves, but what works, works. You have to have structure to avoid chaos at this age level, and they do. I have had children at this school for 8 years now and I can't complain a bit. Great job guys!!"

    "Skipcha is an education machine. I mean it exactly like it sounds--they churn out kids with the basic level of education required to move on. Special considerations, TAG or Special ED, are not well tolerated. Parents are openly encouraged to stay away. We referred to it as "the prison." Kids are frequently kept inside during recess-and watch tv--are never allowed to talk, even at lunch, and the PE program is a joke. Are you surprised to know they have discipline issues? My 2 kids sadly attended 1-5th grade here. The only reason I didn't pull them is because the individual teachers they had were good (Lugo, Foss). Unfortunately, the on-post schools here are worse, so unless you home school, there is no better option:("
