Read what parents are saying about Howsman Elementary School
Most students in my son's class were bilingual. Unfortunately, he was not and did not understand the students and teacher speaking Spanish. He started calling himself "the sometimes kid". Sometimes he would get a little bit of help but the priority was to teach the kids who spoke Spanish in class. Is language immersion necessary? Of course, it's an effective program. Leaving other children out that do not fit into that mold is NOT OK. I also could not believe the things I was hearing coming out of the mouths of elementary school children. We came from a different state, if our students had behaved that way at home, their little butts would have been kicked out the door. All of the kids at this school deserve a better chance. I know some teachers are probably trying...but some are not.

Three out of my four children have attended this school. My other child had aged out of elementary before we moved to the district, but I wish she had been able to go to Howsman.The teachers and staff are caring, kind, and exceptional. I absolutely love this school and want them to be able to stay here for their entire elementary school experience.

I absolutely love this school .. My children have been coming here for the past 3 yrs and I have had no problems there. The front staff is very friendly and caring and so are the teachers even the volunteers. The school is the reason why I wouldn't move elsewhere. My children have also learned so much more here than in neisd. This is highly recommended school
