The combination of an outstanding facility, a caring faculty and staff who are dedicated to student success and high performance, a committed and supportive school community, and an excellent academic program make Houston Elementary a wonderful place for children to learn.
At Houston Elementary School we believe open, effective communication between home and school strengthens both institutions; that lifelong learning can be nurtured by the home/school partnership; and that children thrive in an atmosphere which promotes cooperation, responsibility and excellence. We believe in learning to live and living to learn, and commit our energy and resources to the creation of the rich learning climate that supports this belief.
