So far so good....2 of my sons attend this school, and I can already tell the difference in the environment. The teachers are out directing traffic, and opening doors for studemts to exit their parents vehicles. The classes are alot smaller than DISD, and teachers seem alot nicer, and invloved with the kids. This is a step up, considering they came from Arcadia Park in Dallas. Anyone that has their kids in DISD, should MOVE ASAP for your kids futures sake. Glad my kids are getting a better education, and they love their teacher, no more bullying from Teachers/Principals/Staff at DISD !

my son attends bowie. The teachers care about their students. The principal could care less about anyone but her rep. I never cared for Bowie but the program offered only here helps my child achieve and prosper. Needs a new principal that cares for staff, students and parents!

They have great counselor, and most of the teacher are working to help lower incomes kids to go ahead improving their greats and projections in life.

I think they have good acedemic programs. They do offer extracurricular activites outside of what they have during school hours. The parent involvment could be more. You can count on only so many parents.

Bowie kids are awsome! I don't agree that the whole school is bad. I have three children that have attended at bowie, two that graduated from bowie. I think suzy muyer has done a wonderful job! No school is perfect, thire will be problems. It's all in how you work trough those problems that count. I pray that this will be an outstanding year for james bowie elementary.
