6/10/2010parentI think Exley is a wonderful school. There are many fine teachers, bright students and a very attentive administration. The parents are the best. We have a group of hard working parent volunteers that do so much for the children and the school. I am sad to see a child has written a poor review of the school. Most children and very happy. In response to the child saying the principal wanted to hold him/her back, I want to say that it is not up to the principal. She goes by district rules and teacher recomendations. Exley is a fine school; one of the best in Katy. If you are looking for a quality elementary education for your child this is where you want to be.
5/2/2010parentIt's a wonderful school with great teachers, staff, students and parent volunteers. One I'm pround to say my son has been a part of since the day it opened, his Kindergarten year.
3/5/2010parentThe administrators and teachers are attentive to the needs of the students. They maintain a strict ratio of teacher to student that affords them the ability to work closely with each student.
9/21/2009parentWe moved to Katy a year and a half ago and couldn't be happier with the area and Exley. The staff and teachers at the school are always friendly; and I have been impressed not only with how much my daughter is learning but with how much she seems to enjoy going to school. Moving from another state we were worried about our daughter making new friends, but she seems to have fit right in. From what I have seen when visiting the school to have lunch with my daughter or for school functions, the students are well behaved and the staff seems to be in control.
4/16/2009parentExley is an awesome school with great staff. The Principal is among the best! I am so happy my kids are at Exley - my son is in 1st grade and he has had 2 of the best teachers I could of asked for. We love it here!
10/11/2008parentIf you child is bullied at this school, they will teach your child 'strategies' so they will not be bullied. They will teach them to jump through hoops trying to figure out how not to be bullied. Nothing will be done about the bully. Then they will tell you your child is just too 'sensitive' or 'misunderstands the bully's intentions.' The teachers can be found sitting on a bench together at recess instead of watching the children. Then they can say they never saw anything happen. Ignorance is bliss. There are many better schools out there that put a higher priority on character and respecting each other.
10/1/2008parentI am glad we didn't go to the school you went to where they behaved worse than at Exley! Children at another school are so much more respectful and polite than at Exley. Example: At Exley, parent brings cupcakes to school and children behave like pigs and ask for bigger cupcakes. My child has many friends now, but found it impossible to break through the cliques at Exley. Also, when my child made 100 on a test, the teacher never let anyone know about it. But if the student forgot something, the teacher humiliated my child in front of classmates.
8/27/2007parentWe moved to Katy last year and we love it here. This school is the best that I have ever seen. I will tell you that every person in the school is very helpful, knowledgabel and friendly. I am so thankful that my son is able to be apart of this school. The teachers are very friendly and helpful. My son loved his teacher last year. He has ADHD and with the help of the school he is getting the special assistance that he needs to help with his education.
7/4/2007parentTeachers are too young. My child is a 4th grader and every teacher except 1 was in her 20's and had never had a child. I have found that there is some issues they just don't get because they are too young and have not experienced having their own child. Katy is a very friendly town and almost everywhere you go here people are open to making new friends. But I have not found this to be the case here at this school. There needs to be punishment for relational bullying, which is done mostly by girls.
6/12/2007parentGood school, but there are too many cliques among students and the teachers do not do anything about it or take it seriously.
5/25/2006parentThe campus is clean and nice. Both of my childrens teachers were enthusiastic. However,this was Kindergarten
8/19/2005parentTests scores are very high with exception of Science. Principal is making necessary changes to increase this score. We are happy that emphasis is on academics - the principal isn't caught up in how shirts are tucked in, etc.
2/6/2005parentWe move here from El Paso, Texas. I retired from the Marines and have seen the school systems in many states around the country. In North Carolina my daughter was held back 2 years. In Texas she was immediately diagnosed with a form of dislexia and given special education to aid in her condition. When I left El Paso the principal suggested Katy ISD because it was known throughout the state for its exemplary achievements. We moved to Katy and comute to Houston for work. While in Texas, my daughter is catching up fast from the damage of those awfull schools in North Carolina. The teachers here are great. It is this schools first year and the personnel are tremendous. The security is ahead of its time and the area is beautiful. Even the crossing guards are very helpful. I Would love to continue writing but this school must be experienced.
12/19/2004parentThe principal is awesome, the assistant principal is awesome. They're both beautiful, smart and lead with great success. The teachers ROCK!
