This is my daughters first year at Hugh Bish and from day one she was put in a class where the teacher is absent for more then half the year. When we questioned this we were told there is nothing they can do about this no they can not hire a perminit sub or teachers aid. She spent most of the school year being bullied by other students. And has asked to go back to cyber school next year since she feels she has not learned any thing new and what little they have done was a review of her previes years in cyber school.
My son has attended Hugh Bish since January and I have seen a huge transformation in him. He love his new school and teacher. It's amazing to see. I couldn't be happier. As a military child, it hard to fit in after every move, but Hugh Bish staff and teachers have welcomed him and he is happy. I am so thankful we found this school....
Great school, Great teachers. I have 2 sons enrolled in Hugh Bish ad they absolutely love it. They look foward to going to school everyday and the school administration are very helpful and supportive.
i do not like the new princilple mr.smith he yells im my childs face and made my child cry.a few times.submitted by fields.
Programs like PTA and Booster Club (sports program) are run by parent volunteers. A volunteer is someone who cares enough to spend their personal time doing something nice for FREE. We are lucky to have the volunteers at Hugh Bish who are so dedicated to their kids! I know of parents who would rather complain about a football coach or c omplain about what kind of snacks are allowed in class than actually help their kids with reading or math! If you don't like something, step up and become part of the solution!!
I give Hugh Bish a giant thumbs up! Hugh Bish is the best school in Lawton that any parent can ask for. Everyone is treated fairly, with respect, and I am proud to wear the orange & green with pride. My experience at this school is one I will never forget. I have one who has graduated and one still enrolled at this time. Being a military family it is hard to find a school that is worth trusting and your kids are happy to attend everyday.My child would wake up each day and look forward to going to school.Why you ask? Between the great teaching staff, wonderful principal and the outstanding PTA they have made our experience here the greatest. I recommend HUGH BISH ELEMENTARY to any family moving to the Lawton area. This school is well rounded with teachers who strive for perfection. PTA pres.
an elementary school should not be ran like a prison. I know a few parents who have withdrawn there kids and put them in different schools. The sports program well lets just say booster club needs a little support but they need to help support the coaches as well as the atheletes.Last teachers say they dont favortise but step back and look the kids can see it. so if your going to teach dont favorties certain kids embrace them all becauser so many of them have great qualities.

i am very pleased with hugh bish elementary. the amount of time my daughters teacher spends with the children is remarkable.
I am very happy with the education my child is receiving at Hugh Bish. My daughter loves going to school and is a great student with the help of the great teaching staff.
Hugh Bish is a great school. When my son was having trouble with his grades, his teachers never gave up on him, or me. When ever I had questions or concerns they were always willing to listen and take action. They also taught me to be a more active parent, and that in order for my child to be able to reach his full potential I have to work with him at home as well. Although the schools have limited resources the teachers are always willing to send home extra worksheets and math packets or summer and winter breaks. Ask and you shall recieve should be the motto at Hugh Bish, because that is all you have to do.
I had the opportunity to complete part of my student teaching at Hugh Bish Elementary. I have since taught full-time or as a substitute at no less than 20 schools nationwide. Hugh Bish is one of the finest schools that I have seen. The principal is outstanding and personable, the teachers are concerned with student growth and achievement, and the students seem to enjoy attending there.
Hugh Bish is a great school. My children have accelerated to great heights. All of the teachers are excellent and personable. They encourage parents to come anytime and help or observe. They have high expectations for all of the students. The music, art and P.E. activities are spectacular. The students at Hugh Bish are receiving an excellent education. Of course, the parents and teachers must work together for their children to achieve the greatest potential.
not very happy with the teacher quality there & the communication with the parents
I am glad that my son is not in this school anymore. I guess it is a lot easier to just say he has to stay behind than to help him.
