    Unfortunately,this school is not the way to go if you are considering it. It was voted the unfriendliest school in the district, and I have had personal experience with that. The administration is not very compassionate and the teachers and staff are treated poorly. The teacher turn around is high, and many good teachers have moved.

    If you are an English only, non Hispanic family then avoid this school. They treat English only students like second class citizens. ALL, and I mean all, instruction is in both English and Spanish. Even non ESL/Dual Language classes have instructions in English and Spanish. They offer no educational classes (ie help your child to become a better reader) for parents who work. Parents can't have lunch with their child because the cafeteria is VERY small. They spend money on ESL Services and new administrative offices but they cannot update the Cafeteria or offer some type of after school athletics. The school can improve if it became a Charter school and opened another school in its place or letting parents have the choice if they want to go there (without having to do the Parent Choice Form thru NEISD).

    larkspur has a new principal and staff which now are poor. The rules are changed from day to day or week to week. Parent involvement is nonexistent if any involvement all. The school (principal) is doing away with parents lunching with students unless the child has a birthday. Seems to me the principal doesn't want any parent involvement at all. Oh I failed to mention that the school is all gated up like San Quentin.

    While there are handful of good teachers, the administration and their support staff and less than mediocre. My children have been attending Larkspur for two years and it's been problem after problem. They do seem to cater to the non-English speaking parents and children. If you have a choice at all, keep looking.

    School is in the middle of a bad neighborhood. English is the second language here. Not parent friendly.

    Larkspur keeps parents very involved in student progress and activities. Children get to do lots of fun prjects and have accessibility to a great library and helpful tutoring. Teachers are available for quick meetings and helpful input. Lots of information is sent home regarding extracurricular activities and other ways the students can get more involved.

    The school cooperates in SFA (Success for All). It is a reading program. The program is pretty good. It requires students to read nightly encouraging the development of reading skills. They offer music and art classes to all students. This is my child's first year at this school. The teacher has been very cooperative and supportive.
