It is an old school in a great neighborhood with minority students but with parents that are willing to help as possible and within their means. Faculty that shows a lot of interest and believes in the students potential. It is my child's first year in school and at Browning but the new principal Mr. Martinez seems very motivated.

Love the teachers, very hands-on and attentive to their kids. Not only are the teachers genuinely interested in their students' progress, but they're just as eager to see them develop and mature through out their childhood. When I see the classroom achievement, I can't help but want to be a part of it. Browning teachers were meant to teach. And they are the best gift Houston ISD could ever have.


Posted April 19, 2010
