    My daughter just completed her Kindergarten year at Fern Bluff. We had a wonderful year. All the Kindergarten teachers are great! There are always lots of activities for families to get involved in- Family Literacy Night, Spring Carnival, Art night and much more. Also, Fern Bluff is such a caring community.

    Parent : My son has been at Fern Bluff from kinder to 3rd grade . We can't wait for next year to come! My son loves this school. All of his teachers have been wonderful . He always has a big smile when I pick him up from school & as a mom that makes my day! He is a straight A student and we like it that way. If you are moving to this area this is a great school for your child to advance in ! They teach them to be independent and take their work seriously while enjoying class. Love this school!

    We have been at Fern Bluff for 6 years. Dr Wilson is professional & takes her job seriously. I had a couple issues that I feel were handled very well. The outcome may not have been exactly what I wanted at the time, but in retrospect (now that all the emotions from the situation are under control) I agree with the way she handled it. Her job is not to make everyone happy, it is to make the right decision for the student & teacher. Mrs Mercer, the assistant principal, is also WONDERFUL. We have had 9 teachers at the school so far & have not been disappointed. There are teachers that I see not being a good fit for my kids, so I mention that on the end of year form that asks for parent input for the next school year. The PTA is very active & provides amazing opportunities for the kids. Science kits, Reflections program, Math Pentathlon, classroom technology, Science nights, etc. So many opportunities available. It is FANTASTIC to see how many parents volunteer. Most important, my kids LOVE this school & love all of the staff. We have considered moving several times & decided to stay put just to keep our kids here. We LOVE Fern Bluff!

    Fern Bluff is a great school. We have been very happy here. The teachers and staff are friendly, communicate well, and really care about the students. There is a warm and inviting feel to the school. The principal is approachable, which is so important. Best of all, the school is one of the Exemplary RRISD schools, so you know your child is going to get one of the best elementary educations at this school.

    This year we've had our 4th Kindergartener at Fern Bluff. And I have to say that it's still a pretty amazing school. Yes, it is public education, but I think most teachers really try to give the best education possible for the kids. Not every teacher there is great, but most of them are. We did have an issue with a teacher last year, but I was persistant and documented everything. When we sat down and spoke with the principal about this issue, she did address and take care of the situation. Dr. Wilson is shy, but she has been very fair in all my dealings with her. She will take the time to listen to parents when they make the effort to approach her. Not every teacher is great but the majority of them are. PTA is very active and provides a lot for the teachers and the kids.

    Other reviewers are right - the principal sweeps things under the carpet and does not deal with issues raised. If she was in the real world she would have been fired - when a number of parents raise issues about the same poor teacher year after year, she should act to get them removed. We have had some amazing teachers and one terrible teacher.

    I am not impressed. As stated over and over again, the school is overly concerned with earning Exemplary ratings. Students who are struggling are under enormous pressure. The halls are unwelcoming, you don't feel the positive energy at Fern Bluff like you do at other elementary schools. I understand why so many parents are turning to home schooling. My son starts grade 2 this year. If it is not signifigantly better than last year, I will be transferring him to another school district.

    Great school if you're into extremist environmentalism and leftist-leaning political agendas. You'll get no help from the principle, she will defend her teachers even when they're wrong. I'm sorry, I'm just done.

    Fern Bluff is a wonderful place where the teachers truly care about helping each child reach their potential. Our principal even plays ping pong with students who need a little extra loving care. Dr. Wilson is a person that I am honored to work with. Our parents are very supportive and involved too. There is a lot of teamwork going on and that is the secret to our success.

    Fern Bluff has an amazing variety of extracurricular activities - Math Pentathlon, Destination Imagination, school plays, science activities - and what's more, the students do amazingly well in these activities. The PTA is very strong and engaged, and makes these successes possible.

    This school has been Exemplary for the last 10 straight years and the last year was the number one in the country in the Math Olympiads.

    Well, I am very sorry to say that this school has been nothing but a big disappointment. The administration here, including the Principal are not the most receptive bunch. Upon entering the building you sense a feeling of not being welcomed there, from the receptionist on... Some of the teachers are great and doing a good job. Some are, well... just not!When problems are brought up to the principal she sweeps it under the rug. Not very good leadership. Also please observe this school's Student car pick up line... It is very unorganized and unsafe. Students are not monitored as to what cars they are getting into. I am talking Kindergarten children being stuffed into cars by 5th, graders, while the adults are socializing w/ each other. No one is monitoring the situation. I am very unconfortable w/ this. Talk about Negligence! The playground is lacking shade and equipment. Overall a big let down:-(

    I used to be a student here about 2 years ago. I enjoyed everything about it. Even though we had a mulitude of pricipals throughtout the 6 years i was there, I still loved every single one of them. The food is great, the teachers are awesome, what else could you want? Plus, It's by a safe neighborhood. Kids can walk to school without parents worrying. In my years there, no single emergency has happened. Except probably the tornado warning, but the tornado never came anyways. So, just because of everything above and more, I love this school, and rate in 5 stars! :)

    I am very pleased withthe school in general. Unfortunately the school has had 3 principals in 3 years. The school is excellent, but I believe the highly qualified teacher in general and lots of parent invovementhas to do with the rateing. We have some teachers that are excellent while others like the 1st grade team this years could use some help. In all we have an excellent TAG team and office team. In general I am satisfied with FBE.
