17 Parent Reviews for Laura Welch Bush Elementary School

I have had four boys attend this elementary school, two have completed K-5 there, two are still students. Needless to say, no school is perfect, and LWBE isn't perfect either. It is, however, a school that is constantly striving for high performance, always improving, and doesn't stay so focused on testing ...  Read more

This is great school. They try to maintain a high rank but also help the struggling kids in any possible way. The staff from teachers to principal are very supportive.

Wonderful school!! I am so grateful that my children have the opportunity to go to LWBE. There is a great combo of an excellent teaching staff and willing, involved parents. My daughter has thrived here and is well ahead of her peers at other schools. I have yet to endure the 'don't want to go to ...  Read more

LWBE is a very good school. The teachers are receptive and responsive. They need to have a bit more of homework at the 5th Grade. Compared to the California schools that I have seen, LWBE is way better.

We were new to the District and School this year. I was expecting this would be a terrible year for my kids having just moved from California. Boy was I wrong!! My kids love this school and their teachers. There is not a day that they don't want to go to school. The teachers here seem to really ...  Read more

TAKS, TAKS, TAKS.... this is all that matters to LWBE. Whatever happened to schools which would teach a subject and test you on it? What we have now are classes on how to take TAKS tests and how to teach kids to deal with the stress of taking the TAKS. I could not be more disappointed.

There are some wonderful teachers at LWBE. However, the school is very overcrowded and the principal is inexperienced and overwhelmed.

Posted by a parent on 03/27/07

We are relatively new to Laura Bush but so far have been very pleased with the level of academics as well as most of the 'specials' such as art, music and theater arts. There is a high level of parent involvement and support at LWBE, and seems to be well supported by the community. LWBE offers ...  Read more
