Holmquist Elementary School Reviews
1 star is not low enough
The Alief ISD School Board really has to look at this school and the principal there and do a top down renovation. This school is a disservice to the community and the kids that it serves. It has consistent low ratings and kids struggle to meet state standards. The leadership will have to change so that the school can get better. Just down the street is another Alief ISD elementary school that meets standards every year because it has a different principal.
Lack of leadership at this school. From top to bottom there is no accountability.
This is a large elementary school in an urban setting, so you would think that the school board and the superintendent would have gotten a principal who could not only handle the job but lead the school in the right direction for years to come, but this is certainly not the case with this school. My children went to this school for three years and we have had nothing but trouble from the first year on. The principal is never there, even when you specifically set up a meeting to meet with her. She thinks that it is okay to not show up to meetings with parents that were set up in advance. The administrative team lacks accountability because the principal is hardly around. When parents have questions, they are passed on from one person to the next and no one knows the answers. There is zero accountability and the state test scores for this school are bad because of the lack of leadership at the school.
Worst principal, administrative team, and specialists ever. They do not listen to parents and some of the specialists are unqualified and never return repeated phone calls. I waited weeks for a call back while the administration and the team of "specialists" were seen by me and my neighbors, who are also parents, taking a 3-hour lunch instead of doing their jobs. The school is led my a principal who absolutely does not care and was nowhere to be found for weeks at a time, so the administrative team and the specialists took advantage of her absence and her lack of management and the specialists and administrative team clearly did not work. This is a very challenged school and I was glad to move far away from this school.
