I absolutely agree with the last reviewer. I regret transferring my children to this school. I know nothing about what's going on. I have not seen one graded paper from my son's 2nd grade class all year. At the beginning of the school year, my son was at end of the year reading levels. It is now the end of the school year and for some reason his reading level has not progressed which leads to believe that they're not even testing to see where he is at this point. They will not be returning here.
First there is no connection with the parents, they do not care about the homework , for me i do not know any thing about my kids at school ,like ,there reading level or if they having a test or not even the conference day they forgot to send me a message about it.
This school lacks a LOT of things. They are also not friendly or great you properly. It does make you think if they are just there to collect a check. Out of the whole entire school year just 1 parent teacher conference. Don't do anything about bullies and hardly bring any homework. My kids have been attending this school for 3 years and im finally moving them to another school.
We moved to Houston from Rio Rancho New Mexico several years ago and my oldest has attended Horne since 1st grade. We have been very disappointed. The teachers are uninvolved, the discipline is lacking. The art, music and PE programs are laughable. My 2nd grader has 1 20 minute recess and if it gets rained out the sit and watch a show that I would rate appropriate for Kindergarden. I feel as though the staff are all there for a paycheck and not for my kid. I have also had difficulty getting feed back from the teachers and have found all but one teacher to be difficult to contact at all, and when you can get in touch with someone no one seems interested in answering your questions. I am looking for other school options and would not recommend this school.
My son attended Horne from K thru 5th. The teachers and administrators at Horne are exceptional. Although it was a challenge and often difficult, with the commitment from teachers in each grade level, my son finished 5th grade performing on-level in all subjects. My daughter just finished 2nd grade reading at a 4th grade level. Horne offers extra help to the kids that need it and encourages their high achievers to soar. Way to get it right HORNE!
I believe that after the school changed the principal, the school has had a good improvement and the actual group of PTO are doing a better job than the previously groups.The teachers my son has had were very good. So I love the school and I beleive it is a good place to my son to have a good education.
We have been very happy with Horne with the exception of discipline. We are very happy with the school otherwise. It is a very diverse student body which I view as a positive thing. There is lots of parent involvement, and teachers are good at communicating with the parents.
My child has attend Horne for 3 years and it has been an incredible experience. He has shown great improvement in his vocabulary and interaction skills. This is a great school. I would recommend it to all parents.
