    "Our daughter is in third grade now and has been at Travis Heights Elementary since kindergarden. We all think it is an excellent school and a great community to be a part of. Great leadership, great teachers and staff. Diversity in terms of economic background and ethnic heritage. Innovative programs. Couldn't be happier with our choice of school for our daughter. Our 4-year-old can't wait to be a Travis Heights Thunderbird!"

    "Our child is in 1st grade and loves Travis Heights. He is learning Spanish, excelling in math, and participating in after-school Prime Time classes. Travis Heights is implementing innovative instruction, including Project Based Learning, Blended Learning for math with 1:1 laptop ratio, Dual Language learning, and Social and Emotional Learning. The school is extremely diverse, with engaged parents, great teachers, and a caring staff."

    "My child has been at Travis Heights Elementary for two years in the dual language program. THES is an in-district independent charter, which gives the teachers much more flexibility to create a curriculum that serves the diverse student body. With blended learning my child is able to push ahead at his own rate -- the software is also available at home so he can do extra work at home if he chooses. The project based learning they are doing is very exciting. My child is engaged and challenged. He has gone from no exposure to Spanish before starting school, to writing multi-sentence stories in Spanish in less than two years (kinder & 1st). The specials (music, art, P.E.) teachers and programs are outstanding and the librarian is awesome. We are very happy with Travis Heights."

    "I am a parent of a THES 2nd grader and one starting Pre-K. I am frankly shocked to see this wonderful school be rated as "5" a rating sadly based only on test scores and not reflective of this school at all. Travis Heights does so much to prepare its students academically and socially for the real world. Parents, teachers and the community came together a few years ago to make this school an "in-district charter", a term that means it is an AISD school with more flexibility to incorporate ideals important to our Austin neighborhood - cultural bi-literacy, service, project based learning, technology, community. THES welcomes all kids, from ESL to gifted to special needs...and disregards how certain students might affect the campus test scores. Staff/Teachers work to assess and meet the needs of each individual child. As with any school, it is not perfect, but the staff is always assessing and truly welcomes parent input/involvement. While many kids go on to do well at Fulmore Middle, I understand that, for the last 4-5 years, students who applied to Middle magnet programs were all accepted at one. And parents say their kids were well prepared for these challenging programs."

    "My child has been at Travis Heights and in Special Education for a few years. There is a partially new staff in SPED this year and I have met them. They seem vibrant, engaged and ready for the challenge with fresh ideas and a positive attitude. The district itself clearly struggles with how to best serve our most vulnerable kids. We have been at others schools in AISD, but we have found the principal at Travis Heights to always be approachable, responsive and willing to dig in deep to make sure the instructional experience is appropriate. Even so far as to push on the district to get needed or unique resources on campus for our child. I'm sorry to hear one person is upset prior to even starting the school year, but raising a child with special needs can be difficult. I have always found the leadership and teachers at this school to be supportive, proactive and thoughtful about how to truly serve our child."
