Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My children did NOT learn anything from this school in fact when I transfere them to Pearland ISD they were 2 years behind on thier reading and making horrible grade. They pass the kids knowing these children have issues. Needless to say I tranferes my kids to Pearland ISD and they are now Honor Roll kids. Part of the problem is the focus of STATE TESTING. If the kids don't pass the schools in the low income areas are closed. Teachers are also under paid and they let the old school teacher go for the younger ones where many of them are there for a paycheck.

I was very eager to have my child sent to a high performing school away from the neighboorhood or my zoned school because I was sure she would get a better education. I was pretty much forced to send my daughter to her home school because you can get only one magnet transfer a year at HISD. I wasn't aware that Foster was a diamond in the rut. The principal, faculty, and staff are wonderful. My daugther has regained her self esteem, she is more motivated to learn, and most of all I pick her up happy. If you are reading my message, take time out to make a visit to this school. Thank you Foster Elementary.
