My child was re-zoned here from Haynes. The facility is excellent but the staff is terrible! There is a lot of new, inexperienced faculty instructing classes alone most of the time. There were a lot of small situations throughout the year that a teacher with experience could have resolved on their on without it becoming a big deal. The principal is a completely useless figurehead apparently. And my concerns were always directed to someone else. I had several conferences through out the year to check on my child's progress. What I walked into was a woman desperately trying to protect herself by throwing my child under the bus. She never did anything wrong based off our conversations. It was never about my child. It was and is about their careers. Never again fowler.
Every other review here is for the "old Fowler". Fowler elementary is now the newest school in Killeen. The original Fowler was closed in order to build a brand new facility and is now located off of Clear Creek. I just moved to the area last week and got the kids enrolled right away.Every classroom has several Apple computers and a ratio of around 22:1. The staff is so friendly and courteous. My kids love it!
My daughter began Kindergarten there in 2009 & I am very sad to see Fowler forced to close it's doors. I am even more upset that they close an awesome school like Fowler and are forcing us to move or homeschool as they are trying to send our children to a school whose doors should have been shut long ago. Thank You very much Killeen ISD for closing the doors of a decent school & sending children in lower income areas to a school that will only help perpetuate the cycle of ignorance & poverty. Bravo School board, Bravo.
I have sent my daughter and son to Fowler now in the 5th grade and My daughter loves it she sings her heart out in choir and she just loves the school and my son doesn't want the day to end either just like my daughter and they both said if they have to they would fail but i told them i would let them have days where they can visit their favorite teachers they are very happy to attend Fowler i have went their my self and i am happy to say that i loved it there too :D
My daughter was in kindergarten at Fowler this year and I was very impressed. She was very engaged in the learning process and has such a positive outlook on learning because of her experience. All of the kindergarten teachers worked together and all of them had a hand in educating my child. It is a small school where the teachers actually care. The after school care (YMCA) was also awesome. Sometimes my daughter didn't want me to pick her up because of YMCA. She was engaged from the minute she walked into the school until I picked her up.
I am a new parent to the Fowler community and i am very comforted by the teachers and staff there. They are very protective, and loving to all the children. Its is a great comfort that the staff on hand is what it is Thank you Folwer for your great Job.
All 3 of my children have attended & still do attend Fowler.It is a small neighborhood school with a 'family' feel.Most the teachers have taught here and remain here which adds an extra sense of 'security'for the large portion of military families with children.The Choir program is top notch & performs around town and for various events. The TAG Program offers extra curricular work for those in need of more mental stimulation, with field trips,art along with other varied activities.The teachers make it a point to get to know the students and their families which further provides the whole learning experience as a joint effort. As a board member of the PTA Fowler parent involvement is very positive, and fulfilling.The quality of teaching is geared to help every level of where the student is at.I highly recommend this school for those looking for small classrooms and one on one.
