Howbert Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

May 12, 2015 Submitted by a parent
Not a great school if your child needs additional help. You'll face controversy if you send your 5 yr old to Kindergarten and not preschool. 6 and 7 year olds are the norm there. Don't expect exciting or educational field trips. Their only field trip was a few blocks away to the Garden of the Gods Information Center, not even the actual park. Howbert isn't open to the fact that kids learn at different paces. They strictly adhere to D-11 s guidelines. My son never went to preschool. Although he was slightly under standardized test scores, he made significant improvements each quarter. I saw his ability to learn this much and this fast in a year. They did not. The principal was angered when I declined her suggestion of holding him back another year. Their arguments turned to personal attacks (my son was listening to the whole thing). His principal pointed to his stick figure drawings. "Look at his people. There's no neck or body. This is a sign of immature thinking and underdevelopment". VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. This made my son cry. I had to reassure him that he was smart. I had to repair the emotional damage that his "mentors" caused. To us, Howbert was detrimental and very callous.

My two girls have had a wonderful experience at Howbert. Each needed extra help with reading & the ILP support was there every year. By the time they were out of 3rd grade they were both at an above average level. My oldest is now at Holmes and has two AP classes....from ILP to advanced due to positive encouragement from Howbert staff, solid teaching and home support. Also, the music program is so strong! Mrs. K offers choir, orchestra and band to 3, 4, and 5th grade. That is a lot of work and dedication. Basketball, chess club and other extras are also offered for the higher grades. The teacher turnover is low and the parents are very involved. Definately a gem in D11!

This school is WAY to strict and process oriented. If your child is not "middle of the road" they will not do well here. It does not promote free thinking, more like stifles it. My son currently attends this school but I intend to fix that. With any luck the new leadership next year will fix this.

A very small school so certain resources are very limited. New comers are not made to feel very welcome. Parents are very involved which is great.
