- Katy Independent School District, TX
- PK, K-5
Senior: I am currently a college student at the University of Houston, pursuing my dream on becoming an elementary school teacher in the near future. I did my student observations at Schmalz Elementary School and the staff, parents, and students were so welcoming! Due to the fact that the majority of the students come from low-income families, this school ensures that the students get the proper nutrition and support they need in order to succeed and even survive! This school has definitely changed my perspective in regards to teaching and looking out for others. However, the only thing I dislike about this school is that it is hidden behind a highway. Most of the schools in Katy ISD are near shops and neighborhoods and most people do not really know about Schmalz Elementary School.

Magellan International School
- Private School
- Austin, TX
- PK, K-8
Parent: My kids started when the school opened in 2009. My oldest started in 2nd grade and graduated from 8th grade there in 2016 and my youngest started in PK4 and will graduate in 2019. The school is a gem and unique not only in Austin but only one of 8 schools in the country offering what it offers. Not only are the teachers incredibly qualified, warm, and caring, but they also teach using the International Baccalaureate program which ensures kids foster their curiosity, problem solving skills, and empathy. The school recently added a design thinking program at all age levels that includes a new innovation laboratory. Together these allow kids to explore taking their ideas to reality. Finally, the multilingual education gives kids fluency in three languages - English, Spanish, and Chinese. All these together, plus an incredibly committed community of parents, teachers, staff, and students, make it a place like no other.
