Kuentz is a wonderful school. The principal and teachers are amazing and very supportive. My children are thriving!! I would have to agree on the clique comment from 6 years ago. It is VERY cliquish. Mom's and their Louis Vuitton purses and stilettos, not much has changed in that department. I'm assuming you'll find that pretty much anywhere and it's not a reflection on the school.
My children attended this school for four years. The principal is absolutely wonderful and so are the large majority of the teachers. There is a 4th grade teacher named Mr. Skinner and a 5th grade teacher named Mrs. Connor who are both absolutely AMAZING teachers. My children were incredibly fortunate to have these teachers. I can recommend this school without any hesitation.
Our family LOVES this school and staff! We put in for a parent choice transfer because our "zoned" school was knees and toes below the acedemic and social level that Kuentz is. The principal, Mrs. Gallegos is beyond amazing and truly loves every child that walks through the door. The parents and kids that attend are so nice and friendly. I was concerned that our children wouldn't fit in because our family does not come from money, but we have never been turned away or looked down on in all the time that we have been here. The PTA parents, room parents and random moms that come in to help are so willing to add you to their project. Once they see that you will stick around, you will find that they will seek you out to help them more often. I have NEVER been more impressed with ANY school as I have been with this one!
We have been so happy with Kuentz. We moved back to Texas after a year in Louisiana. Our child had been to 2 elementary schools already so when we were moving to the area we based our decision to live in Helotes on the schools in the area. After reviewing the schools, we sought out a house that fed to this school. We are so glad we did. Mrs. Snyder worked with and encouraged our 2nd grader and we loved her. It was a great change from the previous year. She really cares about each of her students and never seemed to play favorites. Nurse Fox is also amazing. Our daughter has diabetes and has daily contact with her, and it puts us at ease to know she's in great hands. Mrs. Gallegos the principal is very involved and approachable. We have another child starting school this fall in kinder and we're looking forward to several more great years!
