    "Coming into the area 3 years ago, we had high hopes of LCISD. We had heard so many great things about the district, their long term goals and the teachers. At this point, we are very disappointed in our experience at Cora Thomas. First and foremost, the lack of communication from school to home unacceptable. Teachers often complain that there is not enough parent involvement, yet at this school, when you try to be involved, you are quickly shut down. The receptionist is not very welcoming nor are the teachers or administration. When you have parents and grandparents who wish to be involved in their child's learning experience, you should put forth the effort to encourage it, not dismiss it as a problem. My students struggles began in first grade and after asking for tutorials, extra work to be sent home, lists of tutors for the district, etc, we got nothing. When you have a student who is with you ALL day and they have C's and D's in first and second grade, yet you don't send anything home for them to work on, that seems to be a real problem. Oh wait, according to the counselor and reading recovery teacher, that's "average" for their school. So it's OK? REALLY LCISD???"

    "I was not impressed with this school. This was my kids' first year attending and if I had a code it would be their last. There is absolutely no communication with parents. They deal with everyone like they know school policies and procedures and its been like that since the orientation day. We were not only new to this school but new to the state and my children felt out of place the entire school year. Even when my son was tested for the gifted program the only communication I received was that he was accepted. I had to investigate on the website and figure out how he was even selected for this testing. I spoke with the assistant principle regarding a bus referral my son was given in error and she assured me she would handle it but it is still showing on his record. I requested a parent teacher conference with my son's teacher Ms. Vasquez back in January and never received anything but empty promises. Even the kindergarten graduation was disorganized, parents were setting up tables for themselves. Ms. Fernandez was a wonderful teacher, very respectful of all of our wishes and a great communicator. If school of choice was available my kids would not return to this school."

    "Cora Thomas Elementary School is the BEST. The teachers are friendly and love the kids. They all go out of their way to keep parents informed and help the kids to do their best."

    "Not even a month and already having issues with my daughter's first grade teacher, eventually doesn t want to help my daughter it seems she has trouble helping my daughter learn English. I do understand it s a bit stressful but my daughter is a fast learner that I m aware of. My daughter in HISD was dominated GIFTED & TALENTED and owns a trophy which I m such no kid in her class has one from school yet. I m very proud of my daughter as she puts so much effort in learning that I m sure because once she gets home after school we spent all evening till 8:30p reading and worksheets. My daughter deserves a better teacher than what she has now. My opinion."

    "My son is nearing the end of his kindergarten year and I have to say that this year has been amazing at Cora Thomas Elementary! He has a great teacher who is extremely patient and understanding and even took her time and thought about what my son will require for next year in his ARD meeting (my son has high functioning autism). I have been told by several parents who have children with special needs that most teachers (at their children's schools-not this one) just want to blow through the meeting without really stopping to think about what the child requires, but with my son's teacher I could tell that she was pausing to think about my son's needs and really cares about what will be best for him next year. I am very happy with his teacher this year and the school overall. Everyone there from the principals to the kindergarten teacher to the super friendly PE coach are all extremely nice and really care about the kids. This is a great school!!"
