I am very impressed by the principal. Every day she greets all the children in front of the school. In the area of academics the school stands out as one of the high performing school according to TEA report. Making this school the only one in Pharr San Juan Alamo ISD to have received this distinction. I am very pleased to have my children in this awesome school.
