School Reviews

For the most part the staff is very engaged. It seams that those teachers who have a reputation of having a poor attitude are not there the next year. The administrative staff is good and has a good. The district seams to overlook this school in terms of having AC that works well, running track that is well maintained, and general maintenance of the building. The school district spends a lot of money on the newer schools and promoting how great they are out in the wealthier subdivisions. The school district's best assets are the schools like Truitt where education is important to hard working parents. CFISD needs to wake up and support this great school.

This school has many very good teachers. The administration works very hard with the students and parents to create a positive environment for the students. Currently, in the year 2013/2014 there are very few fights and the students get along very well. There is also good support and team spirit at the sporting events. Truitt orchestra department is outstanding. If you are looking for your child to have a diverse set of friends and a great learning environment then I would recommend that you consider Truitt Middle School.
