I started Lockhart in the Fall. I immediately told staff my child has some learning difficulties. They dragged their feet to start the process for determining eligibility for help. Some minor modifications have been made and some improvements and progression has been made on my child's. behalf. It is MARCH and still no help with eligibility for resource. All the paper work is in and they said my child is going to fail. Even though I did all the paperwork to make my child eligible for help so that my child can be graded on different guidelines. Can you imagine he anger I feel? I have written letter after letter but no help. The bullying is occurring in the classroom and is hurtful to a struggling child. I do not recommend this school.
I LOVE Lockhart, I am a second year parent and appreciate the structure, discipline, and committment they have to the future of the children. Honestly negative responses on this site seem to be petty and geared towards personal opinions. I am focused, as every parent should be on the quality of education received and the fact that ALL my kids are reading (Pre-K, Kinder, 1st grade). As a parent our responsibility is to work equally as hard as the teachers with whom our kids are spending most of their time with. Putting personal agendas and feelings aside we have to appreciate what these teachers have to deal with on an everyday basis (ie. both students and parents). I am not opposed to excellence and I gladly submit to the individuals that sacrifice their time and patience to do for our children what we as parents sometimes don't take time to do. Just my thoughts :)
I went there as a child and that's why I chose this school. My child was progressing up until the second grade. He is a magnet student and was placed in Ms. Goree class. She is young, don't know how to control her class, can't teach, and grades incorrectly. My child didn't learn a thing. Now I feel that my child is behind a grade because of her. Horrible. And principle Ms Adams don't seem to care about a thing but making sure her clothes and makeup is in tact....hmmmm go figure! (Ps...ms Garza 1st grade is the best)
The year that we spent at Lockhart was abysmal. Very cold demeanor of the principal trickles down to the other staff. We left after one year.
The teachers give good face and for the most part ARE committed to acad. achievement, however what is lacking is emphasis on whole dev. of the child. Parents will need to provide extracurr. activ. to encourage well-roundedness. If your child is well behaved AND advanced, then they will do fine here. If not, then you must be an engaged with ALL aspects of your child's educ.Don't leave anything to chance!Bullying is common and NOT taken seriously.The kids are not encouraged to speak up when they have problems with others.I have witnessed teachers getting in kid's faces and screaming because they were not in a straight line. Last year, a child was publicly embarrassed, marched to the office, made to write lines, AND a parent was called... for working ahead in class (1st day). I have witnessed teachers, whose lack of exper. (classroom mgmt) did nothing but diminish the morale of students. Lockhart lacks the pos. atmosphere that an elem. school should thrive on. My child does well academically, but does not feel safe, nor in a position to thrive. If you just trust HISD to properly educate your child blindly, then Lockhart is the school for you.
Enrolling my son at Lockhart was the best decision. To come from in my opinion a dysfunctional FBISD elemetary school to a school where the prinicpal and the teachers are on one accord is AWESOME! Mrs. Adams excepts nothing less than your very best. She makes me feel welcome whenever she see me or any other parents on the campus. I have never seen this type of parent involvement like what I have witnessed this school year. I appreciate her holding these teachers accountable as well as the students. GO LOCKHART CUBS!
Transferring my son to lockhart elementary was the best thing I have done for my son's education.... All I can say is that ms. Adams has this thing called education down to a fine art. I love lockhart elementary.
I love this school! It has a modern-flair (with young, vibrant, energetic and creative teachers); yet, traditional (with disciplined and structured learning environments). The staff is very familiar with the students, parents and guardians. This school is exemplary! Elysa Denise Jackson, a proud Lockhart parent
My daughter went to this school for 3 years and I was very pleased. She was initially enrolled in private school and I took her out. So, I was very pleased with the transition from private to public.
This is a great school my kids love it. Great job to all the teachers and staff. They really do love the kids.
This schooll is,I would say, not a school that you find too often. They maintain a high degree of discipline in order that other students may recieve the highest quality of education they can receive. The teachers are vey dedicated to their work. There are some sports teams and as far as I know they are fair. If your child is interested in choir there is a music program set up as an ancillary and it is very devoted to its students, also it maintainns an energetic status. Parental involvement is fair, I don't know much of it, but the school holds PTO meetings very frequently. On a scale of 1-10 I would say this school is a 10!
I have sincerely appreciated the determined spirit and efforts of the teachers at Lockhart. The administrative team ensures that 'teaching is taking place'. My children have had a pleasant educational experience thus far. Lockhart is doing a great job in H.I.S.D.'s South Central Administrative District!
I'm a former student and I believe Lockhart is a really great school. It is fun and the teachers are excellent I had the best time of life. I also had the best teachers and friends. Lockhart is the best elementary school. Also class of 03 was the best fifth grade clss there was. Go cubs!
I have had an excellent experience at Lockhart. I am pleased with the progress of my children and I feel very welcome in the school.
