the children our proud to go to Horn Elementary School every day & they leave school refreshed with more knowledge & respect for what they have learned though the day.
Horn is a great school. The teachers and staffs are very caring and supportive of our children. The curriculum is excellent and it challenges my child in every aspect. Best of all, parents involvement is highly encouraged and welcome.
Genuine concern for my child (both academically and emotional well being)
The neighborhood really rallies around this school. Despite the limitations of the overloaded and dated facilities, the faculty, staff and parents work hard to provide a great learning environment for the kids.
Horn is a wonderful school. The teachers make learning an enjoyable experience for kids. Kids learn to be disciplined and responsibe.
It's a small neighborhood school and the teachers are all caring and thoughtful.
Despite the school being located within large school district, it maintains a small town feel in that the parents and teachers make an effort to get to know each other and strive towards common goals. The result is a collaborative effort to provide the students with better classroom instruction and materials and excitement about learning. My twins are in first grade and the school emphasizes development of good study habits and routines that will serve them for years to come. I like the fact that it is attractive to neighborhood families as well as magnet students I do wish all schools offered more outdoor time whether it be for PE or classroom discussions.
Because we are a public school that functions like a private school due to the involvement of parents, grandparents, friends and the community of Bellaire.
Horn has a great group of caring and wonderful teachers. it is a school that cares.
Horn is a great school. The teachers and staffs are AWESOME- very caring and supportive of our children. Go HORN!!!!
Horn Elementary in Bellaire Texas is the best school because of our dedicated, hard-working and loving teachers. We are very privledged to have our distinguished public school be a Magnet School for teaching our children about Art, Communications, Computer Technolgoy, Earth Sciences and Life Sports. Our PTO is full of committed parent volunteers and we have been successful in developing positive relations with our community businesses and leaders. Horn Elementary is a Diamond in the Rough!
Horn has outstanding test scores, tremendous parent involvement and wonderful students.
Horn Elementary is a home away from home for my children. I love the fact that the nurse views her office as a haven for a child. She counsels them without them even realizing it. She says she wants to write their story and gets them to open up to her about their feelings. She then discreetly talks with the parents to help them understand what might be going on with a child that seems angry or frustrated. I love that Horn staff cares this deeply about their students.
Horn is a place where my kids recieve a high quality magnet school education right in our own backyard. Other schools are eliminating art, recess, and other high value-non TAKS test subjects but Horn keeps them as part of the curriculum for every student - not just the magnet kids or the G/T kids.
Horn has a great staff that does not waiver in their commitment to providing a high quality educational experience for our kids with genuine care and concern. They offer ancillary classes to all students, providing opportunities not available in neighboring schools.
My son started at Horn this year and I am thoroughly impressed! The genuine care for the kids is overwhelming and we've felt so welcome since day one. My son loves his new school!
I have 2 daughters attending Horn presently in 1st and 3rd grade. My daughters feel welcomed and loved by thier teachers daily at Horn. The creative writing, computer, art, music, and PE classes really create an exciting buzz at our house. My daughters are eager to go to these classes and the knowledge they have gained has enhanced their fundemental classes greatly. Horn does an exemplary job creating an interdisciplinary approach to education as their teachers do a masterful job at exposing the children to diverse cultures and perspectives. The PTO does an awesome job of communicating with parents, teachers and administrative staff. However, I would love to see more ethnic groups represented in Horn's teaching staff. I think it would enhance the beauty of diversity present in the hearts of its students and teachers. Overall, we have been completely satisfied with the blossoming confidence of our children.
My son attended Horn for 2 years. He has special needs and I was hopeful that his educational needs would be met. I was sadly extremely disappointed. I found the some staff to be genuine, but the teachers were not commited to educating my child. This is a district issue as well as school issue. On a positive note the children were exceedingly friendly and welcoming!
So far we love Horn!! We have a child in1st and one in 2nd grade :-)
My son has experienced an outstanding education at horn and the new upper grade teachers are awesome. He is now a top student in middle school!
