My daughter is now in 2nd grade and has attended Foster since Kindergarten. The teachers and support staff are wonderful, caring, and have the best interests of the kids at heart. When she started my daughter had speech problems, which also put her behind in reading--and the administration got her enrolled in speech therapy and extra reading help. Since then she has improved by leaps and bounds! She is actually ahead of her reading level now. Foster also has a very active and involved PTO that does a lot for both teachers and students. My daughter LOVES her school.
Avoid moving to this area if you can. Foster Elementary School employs teachers and management staff who appear friendly in the beginning of the school year, but gradually through brief glimpses throughout the year, you'll realize they are rude to the children. If you have any concerns, especially if your child is harmed or hurt on campus, they are belligerent and defensive. This is a reprehensible school that turns a blind eye to bullying! Stay away!! For the safety of your children, especially if Mrs. Zelezinski is still the principal! She does NOT care about your kids!
Challenging curriculum; I see that Foster received an Exemplary rating from the T.E.A., that's the highest rating a school can receive, I believe. My special needs daughter has just blossomed and is excelling in the 5th grade. My husband transferred here from Kentucky- trust me, Kingwood schools are a HUGE improvement of what is offered in Kentucky, sorry Kentucky.
I absolutely love Foster! My daughter is in her 3rd year there and she's excelling in every subject because every teacher she's had so far makes learning fun. They interact with each child so well and really seem to do their best. They've even gone to see my child's singing performances and to watch her cheer. These teachers really play an active role in these kids' lives.
I think this school is pretty good. My child has been there for 6 years and loved it but there is some teachers that do not teach very well. 5th grade is the hardest. From about 3 tests a week to 3 project a week and more.
This school is all about involvement. They are constantly searching for new ways to help the children excell, and are willing to try differnet aproaches to get them there. My daughter has just started Kindergarten we all love it. Teachers work together so the children have a chance to interact with each other besides the ones in their class. PTA and parent involvement are also encouraged in the school.
