DELL VALLE SCHOOL HORNSBY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS THE BEST SCHOOL DISTRICT MY KIDS HAS EVER HAD. Is incredible how they have worked so hard with my kids on my 1st year here in the state of TX and their grades were above of what they have now on this other school Hart Elementary school which teachers do not work at all and over the past 2 years almost 50% of the kids have not passed the state Tax test. Incredible.

This is my child's second year attending Hornsby she is currently a 1st grader. I don't have any major complaints but I agree with the first parent that more math based curriculms would benefit the students all the way around. I do like their emphasis on reading and a few of the first grade teachers seem to have a good handle on their students disclipline wise which I definetly like. All around good school but I agree the gifted and talented programs need to be stepped up a notch.

My son has grown both socially and academically at HDE. The new principal is very visible and involved. I think the brighter students should have more challenged activities rather than be limited by the average student. I think a better, more clear Math curriculum would help with TAKS tests. I have seen two teachers (not my son's) who could be more discreet when correcting in front of others. We have been pleasantly surprised by our son's teachers and their caring nature.
