Owens has performed well in standardized testing in a district that is sub-par. More importantly, the environment is warm and nurturing while providing a solid education. The teachers at Owens, as a whole, are some of the best in the district. My concerns have always been handled well and while parents play a strong role in supporting the success of their students, the school is clearly run by administration.

My child has special needs. He has a major heart defect, and ADD......he cannot take meds for his ADD because of the heart issue. Owens staff has been so wonderful to work with us, and encourage other coping mechanisms, and help my child succeed despite setbacks. He went from nearly failing the second grade, to Target (talented and gifted) within one year of special attention to his needs. His teacher this year, Ms. Bennett, has been absolutely AMAZING with communication regarding his work and behavior in the classroom! It truly takes a community effort to get our children raised and educated properly, and Owens staff do SUCH an amazing job during the hour s they have our kids! Thank you, Owens!

The teachers at Owens go above and beyond the call of duty. They honestly do care about the children. We have been at Owens for seven years and it has been a blessing. My oldest child has Dyslexia and was put in a special progam. He graduated from Owens last year and is now in the MYP IB program in Junior High School and no longer needs any services. My daughter is still at Owens and her teacher is amazing. She has helped boost her self confidence as well as stayed after school to help her . We truly feel blessed to be there.

I vote Owens Elementary School in Tyler, Tcxas as THE BEST... because the kids are like sponges for learning! They soak up everything that is available to them. And, the kids always seem happy & content! Besides a hard working faculty & staff, the whole community is so supportive. The parental involvement is sky high and student achievement is always climbing. Constant increases in enrollment and being rated exemplary numerous times by the state of Texas is a pretty good indication of a positive learning environment!!! OWENS IS THE BEST !!

My son has been at Owens for 2 years (K and 1st). Both years, we had terrific teachers. The PTA is great! However, there is a lack of recess time, music, art, computer programs are only offered once on a 2-week rotation. The library is adequate but small and needs some updated books. The school is crowded, but hopefully with the new Jack campus, that will help. This year, some security measures were instituted and the grounds have been improved upon as well. All in all, we do like Owens and recommend it.

I feel Owens does a good job but is severely overcrowded. This results in students not being able to fully explore the arts and music. There have been days my daughter was turned away from the library as the librarian said she had too many kids already (she is at Target on her classes day and has to go independently). She has had some wonderful teachers and some just OK teachers. It is

Owens is a very family oriented school even though the enrollment continues to climb. The teachers, on the whole, are very caring and well trained. As a parent the key is to get in there and get involved. Parent involvement is encouraged and it is enjoyable!
