My girl was in a class with a bunch of poor behaviour students, low achievers and quitters. She didn't improve because of this. The principal didn't do a thing to correct this problem. Now my girl goes to grade 5 but she lacks all the desired skills. The school is only a show when they anounce some visitors from the main office. There are many dedicated and excellent teachers that will achieve greater success if they had the support of a new and better principal and administrators.
The best eduucation anywhere! Great faculty and staff,students and parents.Most up-to-date technology in any elementary school.
I love Herrera Elementary because the staff and faculty have been like family. When there is a problem, they are available and willing to help. It's been a great school!
Great school, caring staff, technology a big part of learning and the staff is always finding ways to keep the kids interested - serious about teaching and learning but also provide fun events throughout the year.
Herrera, is a great school because the teachers & staff work together with the parents! They are always doing something fun for the students!
Because Herrera haves one of the best programs educational in the HISD
It is a wonderful school in a community where parents really, really care.
I love this school because it offers a great academeic and safety environment for our children.
Herrera Elementary is a great school because children have an awesome opportunity to learn alot about technology!
It's an awesome school with all the new technology. The teachers are great!
The students and staff of this school is great. There is a strong community backing which doesn't always happen.
My daughter has attended Herrera Elementary from pre-k thru fifth grade. The school has had some difficulties in the past, mainly due to the placement of a principle. Now that the school has Mr. Carnes (principle) it has become a school that in my opinion every parent would want their child to attend. Mr. Carnes has just done so much for the school in the little time he has been here. Herrera has always held high standards when it comes to the technology use for their students. It is also a kid friendly enviroment, and welcomes parents. Not only into the school to visit, but to get involved hands on with the technology that their child/children are learning thru the school year. I am so excited for the next school year for my younger children. Because the school just seems to exceed in everything they do.Thanks to a great staff and faculty.
The school has a stable leader in Mr. Carnes. What was a problem of constant leadership change has been corrected. The school is on top of its game again. The technology that the children are learning is amazing. Awesome school.
