Pearl Hall Elementary is the biggest kept secret in Houston! The teachers truly are dedicated to help develop the maximum potential in every child. Students excel in all areas because of a 'can do' staff of professional certified educators who believe that all children can learn given the proper environment, support, encouragement, and materials. One of the greatest opportunities provided through the music program is participation in the Building Cultural Bridges Program. Students learn about other cultures' music, literature, and many careers by interviewing people from the countries of the International Space Station thanks to support from NASA, Canadian and European Space Agencies, the Houston Symphony, Society for the Performing Arts, Consul Generals' offices, The Houston Grand Opera, Norwegian Seaman's Church. The BCB has enhanced the fine arts, math and sciences, and community support as well as the pride each student has in their school, community and themselves.
