I am responding to the previous reviewer who asked how the person before them could have given the school a 4 star review. I am the person they is referring to. My reasoning was because I felt the only flaw in this school was the bullying. At the time I wrote that review, we had only experienced bullying the first year, not the second. Since the problem seemed to be corrected, and everything else (teacher, education, etc.) was good, that was my reasoning for the 4 stars. But I do agree that the bullying here was terrible. And now, a year since my review, I'm finding out my son was bullied in his 2nd year, he just never said anything to us! I think he's only telling me now because he no longer goes to this school, so he didn't have to worry about backlash. I didn't have room in my other review, but I wanted to mention how he came home once with a note from the nurse saying he was slapped numerous times in the face and was given an ice pack. He had a welt on his cheek. They made it sound no big deal, like it was normal or something. I don't think the child in question was punished. I had hoped our situation was an isolated case, but apparently others are experiencing it as well.

I don't see how the last reviewer could give this school a 4 Star rating (oh, and by the way my kid gets bullied). I drove by at recess and saw 7 kids, go to the end of the recess field, and push a kid down in between them and kick him. This school has a real problem with bullying.

Great school and staff except for the librarian, kids called her Mrs. grinch. She forgot she is a public servant.

We attended Ward Elementary for Kindergarten and 1st grade. The school is located inside our neighborhood. Being an Active Duty Military family I was worried about moving to Houston with no large military posts nearby. I have nothing but great things to say about Ward Elementary. The teachers truly care for their students and are top notch. The principal is great and is not afraid to try new and innovative ways to improve the kids education. The level of education my son is getting is outstanding and the school consistantly gets top ratings in the state evaluations. The only way we could be happier would be if the military would let us stay here longer so that both of my boys could attend Ward Elementary. If given the opportunity to return to Houston my kids would attend this school.

My daughter has attended Ward Elementary for grades 1, 2, and currently 3. She has had a wonderful array of programs, and I have had every opportunity to be involved at the school. She has loved everyone of her teachers and enjoys the atmosphere at Ward. I have no hesitations in recommending this school to anyone considering moving to the area!

We just moved to this area from out of state. This school is located inside our neighborhood, and most of the kids that attend live close enough to walk or bike to school. We have been impressed by this school since the first day we walked in. Our transition was smooth, our daughter was made to feel comfortable by students and staff, and we are thrilled with the level of education she is getting. This is one of the best, we couldn't be happier.
