Howbert Elementary School 4

My two girls have had a wonderful experience at Howbert. Each needed extra help with reading & the ILP support was there every year. By the time they were out of 3rd grade they were both at an above average level. My oldest is now at Holmes and has two AP classes....from ILP to advanced due to positive encouragement from Howbert staff, solid teaching and home support. Also, the music program is so strong! Mrs. K offers choir, orchestra and band to 3, 4, and 5th grade. That is a lot of work and dedication. Basketball, chess club and other extras are also offered for the higher grades. The teacher turnover is low and the parents are very involved. Definately a gem in D11!

This school is WAY to strict and process oriented. If your child is not "middle of the road" they will not do well here. It does not promote free thinking, more like stifles it. My son currently attends this school but I intend to fix that. With any luck the new leadership next year will fix this.

A very small school so certain resources are very limited. New comers are not made to feel very welcome. Parents are very involved which is great.

Howbert is nestled in the Pleasant Valley neighborhood of Colorado Springs and has a small community feel at the base of the Front Range Mountains. The level of parent involvement is very high and programs offered are more than adequate as are the extra curriculars they provide. They even have some fun before and after school programs that are interest driven rather than simply a child care program. All of the families I know who have had their children attend Howbert have been very pleased with their experience.
