    "In reading the parent review from 8/31, I feel compelled to respond. Speaking as a parent who has 2 children entering their 4th year at GOES since the age of 3, I feel that the review was not fair, especially since it appears to be from a new parent basing it on the 1st wk of school. Due to the severe budget cuts of the last legislative session, the principal continues to be creative in working harder with less. In trying to prepare for the 1st year of harsh cuts, while many other schools were laying off their employees, she was able to cut her budget and keep every one of her staff (the Magnet grant has does not cover employee salaries). She is extremely supportive of parents and staff. She works late into the night on campus, attends most -if not all- school events and PTO board meetings, and she's never unanswered any of my emails. The previous parent stated, "You'd be surprised how well people would work and give of their time and services if their voices/opinions were considered/heard." This is reflected with the principal's leadership. Due to our strong parent base and volunteer hours, we were the only school in the magnet grant that met the parent involvement requirement."

    "I am so happy to work at Garden Oaks Elementary. The school climate and culture is welcoming and encouraging. My colleagues are top notch professionals, who always put students first when making decisions. As a long time educator in public school systems, I rate this campus as excellent, because of the dedication to, and compassion for students, from PK through 6th grade. The Montessori program at Garden Oaks differentiates instruction for each student, found popular for the past 17 years by parents here, who have actively supported Montessori education in the public sector. The focus on environmental science is a growing attraction and fits well with the beautiful access to outdoor education. Please come visit our school and take a tour to see for yourself the smiling, happy faces of students, parents and staff. A real gem in a lovely neighborhood, this school is a magnet Montessori school, open to enrollment from outside its zone by lottery through the district's magnet program. I love teaching here, and look forward to the new school year. Garden Oaks is a place where children flourish."

    "I work in the field of education and have very high standards. GOES has exceeded my expectations! The teachers are very dedicated and definitely go above and beyond to engage students. The principal is accessible and proactive. All of the other students and parents I have had contact with have been friendly. There are assistants in the rooms with the youngest kids. Montessori is great for teaching children how to learn (not what to know for a test) and work to solve problems independently or in a group. The environmental science aspect is an added bonus."

    "We LOVE this school! Classes start at PK3 and go through 6th grade. The school itself has a wonderful community feel with outdoor classrooms and classroom gardens. Teachers and staff are dedicated and care for the success of all students on campus. The after-school program has tons of offerings for all of the students on campus."

    "I am a parent of a child at Garden Oaks Elementary and an adjunct faculty at the University of Houston. As a fellow educator and parent, I have seen tremendous growth in my son's reading ability, writing ability, cumulative comprehension in Social Studies, Geography, Natural Sciences, Math, and Art, as well as a deep respect for himself, others, and the world around him. He has self esteem and uses conscious decision making skills every day, skills he has learned in the classroom as a result of Montessori. We really believe in the Montessori mode of teaching at GOES!"
