    "My daughter has mild autism, and I didnt fully have a grasp of this when she started kinder at Owens, though I knew something was wrong, I didn't know specifically how to help her and I was in denial sometimes. Her teacher Ms Duong really helped get her get the services she needed, which led to her diagnosis-she was not allowed to fall through the cracks for a second. While at times it was very painful and difficult, the staff I dealt with were very understanding and in the end my daughter was helped and she is well on her way in getting the interventions she needs so that she can be successful, and I have the staff at Owens to thank for that. They seemed to REALLY care about my daughter.Communication with her PPCD teacher, Ms Dew was great. I have also heard through word of mouth the school is very good at "catching" problems when their child attended other schools and it didn't happen. I will always be grateful to the people who were involved with getting the help my daughter needed, and also for sincerely being excited to see her progress! There is a dress code which I thought was great."

    "My daugter went to Owens and now we do homeschooling because of how terrible Owens is. The principal punishes the kids to hard even for minor things. She also holds grudges on the kids for the ones that have minor infractions. I will never put my kid back in public school again because of Owens. My daughter wasn't learning anything in public school and now she is doing wonderful with the homeschooling program called CC. She loves school now unlike when she went to public school."

    "We just moved here from out of state, and my experience with Owens Elementary has been terrible! We came from an excellent school, and I can tell you, this one doesn't compare. The move down here was quick, so there was little time to investigate the school we were zoned for; otherwise, she would have NEVER had to have this experience. This is a terrible school and my heart breaks for my child and others every time I drop her off."

    "Most of the complaints here are district wide policy. The problem is Cyfair. It has gotten too big to manage. Your choices? Move to Tomball where the teachers aren't scripted and forced to teach only what the district wants them to teach and only the way the district wants it taught. Tomball also has closed concept schools, because open concept has long been known to be a bad idea, but Cyfair continues to build them because it would cost too much to retrofit the older schools. The cupcakes and candy thing has been a policy since 2005 when they decided that was the way to keep kids from obesity. Cy-fair has excellent teachers and tons of money, but is too big to work. taxes to cyfair and pay tuition, and if the economy turns again"

    "I have 2 children that go to ownes elementary. This school does seem harsh when it comes to punishing children for minor things and spends a great deal of time on preparing them for the tasks test. They also do not allow the children to bring cupcakes on their birthday for their class or valentines day candy to pass out. I find this unacceptable because everyother school district allows it. Also, my husband is on the enrollment paperwork as my sons stepfather (the only father he knows) and the emergency contact. They have called him in the past to pick up my son but today when my husband went to pick him up from school early they would not release him. Crazy! Why would he be on the enrollment and emergency contact if you cant releade him to him."
