    "In response to the parent review on November 2nd, 2012. Mr. VanEgdom and Mrs. Tatar are excellent teachers who care a great deal about their jobs and their students. This parent obviously has some anger issues and has probably never taken the time to meet his child's teachers personally or seen the learning that takes place in their classrooms. So quick to criticize without anything but a biased, ignorant opinion."

    "This school has been the worst experience I hope to ever endure in my child's education. He had the worst teachers for 5th grade, including a long term sub that was extremely rude and useless in the classroom. We prayed so hard for better teachers in the 6th grade. Sadly, his 5th grade teachers looped and went into the 6th grade with him! These teachers are constantly on their cell phones while their classrooms are unruly and out of control. Lots of bullying and inappropriate behavior. Obviously the principal does not care or the teachers would care. Looking forward to finally being done with this awful school. If you can help it, do NOT send your child here. It will change who they are for the worst."

    "Principal, Kathy Knowles, is the absolute WORST principal I have ever met! Some of the teachers (Tatar and Van Egdom for example) lack social skills and have a bad attitude..very mouthy! I think they only show up to the "work" to get a pay check and that's it...SAD! Honestly, I'm trying to make good memories for my kids while they go to school but with this principal and some of the awful teachers, it doesn't make it easy.."

    "Less than wealthy need not apply! The schools are nice, and the teachers seem to care about the kids, however if I could have put them in NW ISD, I would have. My son lives 1.8 miles from the school and only rides the bus 1 way and we have to pay $175 per semester for him to ride the bus! There are no discounts for 1 way trip only or short distance riders. If they ride the bus 1 time a month, its $175. I was called the 2nd day of school and was informed that they didnt have record of our payment, (It was paid they just didnt have it on line yet), therefore my son was not allowed on the bus and was to sit in the office until we could leave work and pick him up. This ISD will nickel and dime you to death. Their "required" school materials are extremely unreasonable. They offer a good education, great facilities, and good teachers, but by God you better be ready to break out your wallet. ALSO bus seats are first come first served, and routes are set up before the begining of the year based on paying riders. So if you transfer in, and they dont have a spot for you, your spouse might as well quit their job. But then you couldn't afford to send your kids to this "public" school anyway."

    "Terrible school. Administration is very uncaring about your children. Principle is very domineering. I only wish I could transfer my student to a different Keller intermediate school. I am thinking that home schooling for one year may be my answer just to get out of this environment. Hillwood (across the street) can teach Parkwood Hill a thing or two. Now that is an exceptional school!!!!!"
