Excellent GT program that makes the kids accountable for their work. Huge band/symphony program that encourages participation.

Wonderful school with great teachers and a supportive principal. Very involved PTA. The location is excellent and the facilities are first class.

For as great as this school is supposed to be I was unimpressed and so glad we moved! My son was at the top of his class until his GT math teachers stopped teaching?! Either you do it on your own or your out of luck. He asked for help and she said she couldn't tutor him or even answer any of his questions because she was too busy. And there is a huge problem with bullying. The school is too big and the counselor didn't do anything about the problem. She made it much worse when she had my son and another kid come talk it out after a third kid said something. ?!?

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

Not all, but some. Some of the teachers are truly great at what they do, others just don't care and expect the students to teach themselves.

Office staff needs to learn some manners! They mock patents and are not supportive. Very disappointing.

Student here- i was in the GT classes. This school is a great school academically. The teachers and staff members are friendly and helpful AS LONG AS YOU DON'T GET PUSHY. There are teachers (Like Ms. Benford) children dislike, but she simply runs her classroom as an intensive workspace. The children, however are very rude and condescending at times. The general atmosphere generated by the students is dark and cynical, with lots of black comedy. I recommend this school academically, but the students are another story...

Really like this school! So glad I did my research and decided to live on the west side of town and have my children attend Hornedo. They are very military friendly and keep you informed of all the happenings. The new military liaison is very informative and plans activities for the military kids so they can get to know each other. The school also doesnt put up with any bull and I like that! If you are looking to move to El Paso the biggest mistake you could make is NOT having your children attend Hornedo Middle.

First I would like to say , PTA meetings at 9:30 on a weekday morning .It must be a joke but it is not .Administrators with no power .Why are we paying them a robot could do there job.We should pay good teacher and forget the puppets . This school treat there students with no respect at all.

I am a student at Hornadoe Middle school and i just absolutly love it! There are great teachers who care about the kids and more than 600 friends i can make. Since i am a new student the first day i was immediatly greated with 'Hi! My name is______. Whats yours?' I now have great friends but most importantly I'm getting a great education. Unlike my other school i went to.

2007-08 has been a huge challenge for this school. When the new Brown Middle School opened this year, the EPISD, in all it's wisdom, tried to solve a severe overcrowding problem at Franklin High School by taking all the 6th and 7th graders from Hornedo over to Brown then moving the 9th grade in with the 8th grade at Hornedo. After a lot of growing pains this school has somehow managed to continue fairly well. This is a temporary solution to an overcrowding problem that is present in all the westside schools. EPISD feels that these super-size schools are OK. I feel they are a disaster waiting to happen. Control becomes the issue, not education.
