This is a great school with the exception of the school staff. Two of my oldest kids came out of this school so I did have a better opionio then. Most parents have moved thier kids to a different school because of the new rules implamented within the last years. Parents are not given the opportunity to express themselves in order to make a change since most of them are hispanic. Safety is another issue that I think is being underlooked at. Teachers are coming and going so are students and any parent can support this.
This school is run very poorly. There is a lack of extracurricular activities and there are virtually no field trips for the younger kids. The teachers are good, but a lot of them have been leaving lately. The school is completely focused on the TAKS test.
I am very disappointed with James Bowie Elementary. TAKS scores are all the school cares about, and the scores are abysmal. The school has very limited funds for field trips. I will move just to get my kids into a better school.
This school is great. The teachers are very dedicated, professional and kind. My daughters have gained more then just the education provided..they have better self-esteems and social skills and are overall great kids thanks to the teachers and office staff at this school.
