Bowie is not a healthy environment in which to work. I have witnessed the principal yelling at employees. She is ineffective with parents. The office staff can be rude to parents. There are some good teachers. The building itself needs a lot of work and is not particularly safe. Students must go in ...  Read more

Bowie is a great place for students to learn and only getting better. Teachers are dedicated, innovative, and conscientious about helping every student succeed. Office, staff, and administration support that effort. This year, come see our classrooms and extracurricular clubs.

This school is run very poorly. There is a lack of extracurricular activities and there are virtually no field trips for the younger kids. The teachers are good, but a lot of them have been leaving lately. The school is completely focused on the TAKS test.

I am very disappointed with James Bowie Elementary. TAKS scores are all the school cares about, and the scores are abysmal. The school has very limited funds for field trips. I will move just to get my kids into a better school.

This school is great. The teachers are very dedicated, professional and kind. My daughters have gained more then just the education provided..they have better self-esteems and social skills and are overall great kids thanks to the teachers and office staff at this school.
