    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

    My boys have been students at Howsman for 3 years and they love it. When we first enrolled our oldest son back in 1st grade we sat with the teacher and discussed all of our concerns about the possibility of him having Autism. The entire staff moved quickly tested him thoroughly and placed him in specials and other recommended curriculum. He has since flourished more than we could have imagined. Both of our boys' teachers throughout the years have been extraordinary more than willing to go the extra mile and genuinely care. The vice-principal and other support staff are incredible. They send home plenty of homework which my boys hate but it is not overwhelming. A couple teachers are already fighting over who gets to have our 3 year old daughter in their class when she starts school. As a parent I feel my confident that my kids are safe and secure while at Howsman and the staff have gone above and beyond in my children's education and well-being.

    My kids have been here the last three years. They like the school. They complain about bullies sometimes but I think that is typical. Unfortunately this is a public school in Texas so everything is focused on the TAKS tests. We did not hear much about science until after the Reading and Math TAKS and then they got a packet or two and took the Science TAKS. I can't imagine they did very well. This school needs to step up the homework and raise their expectations. Over-all the school is alright.

    For being a first year parent at this school I am very impressed with the great quality of the care the staff teachers and Principal have for the children and their school. Protection of every child is high priority and I can rest assure that my child is safe when in attendance. I am truly glad and feel safe that my child will be attending for the 05-06 school year. Thank you one and all at Howsman keep up the great work!!
