Owyhee Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

November 30, 2015 Submitted by a community member
I had 2nd and 3rd graders at Owyhee in 2012. They both had behavior issues and at the time were on medication and had psr workers. I was constantly in touch with teachers trying to work with them, but apparently that wasn't enough. They called me into the office on multiple occasions to 'talk' about minor situations but never actually listened to my children or myself. 3rd grade teacher yelled to class and embarrassed children and singled out my daughter when I started asking questions. My daughter came home almost daily crying. The main duty at the school is a bully and the principal got defensive and refused, when I insisted that she and I get my 2 kids, teacher and duty, in a meeting. Very shady. We went back and forth thru email, last month of school. I never heard back from her after I accused her staff of bullying, assured her we would not be returning and threatened to contact district with any more incidents. Harbor method may work for some but if your child is creative or in any way special needs, go somewhere else. If you do choose Owyhee, please please take your child seriously if they report any issues. Update: My kids have thrived the past 3 yrs. My daughter joined the GATE program exactly 1 year after Owyhee refused to test her when I asked. Neither of them has had 1 behavior issue at school, in 3 yrs. Makes me wonder.

My two boys attended Owyhee for half a year after we moved to Boise. Before you enroll, you should know something about the Harbor method and think about whether your child would thrive in that environment. One of mine did and the other didn't. They are both very well-behaved and didn't get into any trouble, but it is over the top strict. One of my boys is a militant rule follower, so he liked all the structure and all the praise he got for following the rules to a tee. My other son, though, is really creative, more of a free spirit type who has a lot of ideas and doesn't like to be told exactly what to do all the time. After he had been at Owyhee for a few months, my husband remarked that "the spark has just gone out of him." I know of someone else in the same situation. The teachers are all very hard working and want to help the kids, and the staff really tried to accommodate my older son because he needed harder assignments, but I don't think the Harbor Method works for all kids. They attend a different school now, and we're much happier. If you have a child who excels with structure, Owyhee may be right for you. If not, you might want to think twice about it.

The principle, teachers, and entire staff maintain high standards for themselves, and for the students. Misbehavior and bullying are not tolerated. The children have parents and teachers who are committed to helping them succeed. They always out perform the district, which always out performs the other nearby districts, as well as the state averages of course. The harbor method may not be every parents' cup of tea, but you can't argue with success.

This school is antiquated in its approach to classroom control and behavioral management. It methodizes control beyond what is healthy for children--especially in the arena of early childhood education. The Harbor method does not effectively teach problem solving and community mindedness. Instead, if a child is struggling with big emotions or frustration, the child is shamed and punished. This is our first and last year here. My child has never felt less safe in a learning environment than she does here. And she is a gifted, high achieving student. I had a child in kindergarten, 1st, and 3rd grade. I quickly removed my kindergartner and 1st grader upon learning some of the methodology used in the classroom. My kids often reported that their teachers were angry or looked angry or spoke mean to the class. I was hoping my 3rd grader would be okay while I looked for another option for her. My waiting has resulted in a lot of pain and sadness on the part of my student. Yes, she is spunky and will push the line. However, shaming her will never produce a happy result. Ever. If you have another choice in schools, take it.

Owyhee Elementary (Harbor School) was originally not our first choice for schools for my kindergartner, for we were put on a waiting list for a different school and didn't get in. However, now we are SO GLAD we ended up at Owyhee. The curriculum is outstanding and the school-teacher-parent communication has been excellent. My kindergartner is thriving and loves Owyhee, and so do I.
