    "*sigh* Inmy opinion, this school is what where all of the dependent children that live on post get dumped into a mediocre, low budget learning environment. The teachers are jaded, the principal is non existent and the relationships between parents and faculty seem strained. There is no school spirit to motivate the children, instead my children are exhibiting the same stress to perform that is conveyed to them through their teachers everyday. A civilian school shows more interest in the children in my experience and possibly because these children are temporary to the area. There needs to be a complete overhaul to the staff and mission statement of this school in order to improve."

    "Fort Sam Houston Elementary school has been such a blessing to our lives for the past three years. When we started our daughter's Pre-K year at Fort Sam she was speaking at a 3 year old level, her speech was delayed and I was so worried that she wouldn't be understood. Before school even started we met with the Speech Therapist and started the beginning phases of testing to create her Individualized Education Plan. She immediately started speech therapy and that year she grew leaps and bounds. Each staff member took the extra time to really listen to her and ensure that she was able to voice her thoughts without being left behind because of her delay. I could not be happier with this campus. The staff is so welcoming, greeting us in the hall each morning, and telling us to have a great night on the way out. My daughter's individual teachers have been wonderful as well. In three years we haven't had a single complaint, our daughter really enjoys school and her teachers. The parent involvement is Fantastic and there are many opportunities to volunteer through the classrooms, PTO and with outside groups like boy scouts and girls scouts. I would absolutely recommend FSH Elementary!"

    "Currently three of my children attend Fort Sam Houston Elementary. The three teachers we work with are fantastic! They are willing to work with my kids when they have problems and they praise them when they are doing well. I have popped in many days, I have witnessed the lunchroom. There is absolutly no yelling going on there. The lunch staff is very kind to the kids."

    "My son attended 4th grade at FSH last year. His teacher was great with him. She was firm, but never resorted to yelling. Her expectations were always high. When she gave a grade that was lower than expected on Gradespeed she would put comments on why my son received the grade he did, (what the expectations were and what my son actually did). She was also quick to respond to all my questions. My son loved and respected his teacher greatly. My son was also in the GT program. His teacher was also great. She too had high expectations and did some amazing things with the students. My son learned a lot and had fun doing it. Other things I like about the school are the "Specials." There are far more choices than in other schools I've been too, including: PE, computer lab, drama, art, music and library. Finally, I feel the school is well equipped to deal with it's super special population of military children and would recommend it! The only thing keeping me from a 5 star rating is the building itself. It's definitely time for an upgrade into something more modern."

    "You can find great teachers at this school. My daughter did K-part of 2nd at Fort Sam Houston Elementary after which I home schooled her for the remaining part of the year. My daughter did not thrive here. Not to say that none can. My main qualm with FSHE is that kids are not allowed enough free time and are not treated like people. They are not allowed to talk at lunch and are yelled at as a group over a PA system. When they have adults visiting they are allowed to talk to them, but when I would go visit I wanted to leave because I felt so uncomfortable like I was being yelled at. The summer before 2nd grade my daughter's reading flourished and I watched her abilities digress as the school year wore on. There are teachers her who I love and think are absolutely amazing, but the hard thing is as a military parent it is you have to figure out who the best teachers and then ensure your child gets but in their class is hard. I have tried to stay objective through out this review, but I would not recommend this school. I would say find a rental in Alamo Heights their schools are great."
