    "My daughter has went to this school since 2010. It's a really nice and clean school. The office staff are ALWAYS so ready to help you with your needs, and if they aren't able to help, they make sure they send you in the right direction. I've had a few concerns with a couple of teachers, and I felt they were reasonable concerns. When my problems/concerns need immediate attention Principal DR. TODD KUNDERS and Assistant Principal MRS. WENDY HAIDER, ALWAYS made my problem/concern their very own. They never acted as if I was wasting their time. They handled my problem/concern with the up most respect for my daughter and I. They both treat every child at OVETA CULP HOBBY ELEMENTARY as if they're their very own child. For this reason I will continue to stay at this school for as long as we're able. DR. TODD KUNDERS is absolutely phenomenal. He's all about our children's education and how to improve if/when traditional ways aren't working for you or your child. I feel so lucky to have him as my daughters principal, just sad we can't take him to when we have to leave."

    "I am so disappointed with the teachers at Oveta Culp Hobby. My son is finishing first grade and his teacher still calls him by the wrong name and even writes it down wrong on notes sent home. At the beginning I was understanding. Now with only weeks left, I find it ridiculous. I had to go in and ask three or four times before I could see any of my son's work. He is getting good grades on his report card, but I like to know how he is doing on his work so if there is something he is not understanding as well then we can work on it at home. I had emailed the teacher five times at the beginning of the school year questions and I didn't receive one single response. At conferences we asked the best way to get ahold of her to ask questions and she said that she was too busy to respond to notes, emails, calls, or texts. I understand not wanting to be bothered, but if I have a question about something written in his planner, than I expect a response! My son will misspell a spelling word while copying it down in his planner then study it the wrong way because she doesn't even look to correct it. This is the only list of words we have to study. I have asked for a hard copy and she refuses."

    "Extremely caring staff! They're very understanding of the children and the stresses of Army life on them. The last school my kids went to was not very impressing. My straight A child (1st grade) began to HATE school :( She didn't even want to get up in the morning! Her grades were actually dropping and she was less motivated (probably due to her teacher yelling all the time). Now that she's at Oveta she is so happy! Her grades have improved and her teacher is the sweetest! My son (4th grade) attended the same school before moving here to Ft Hood. He has ADHD and had a very hard time. His teacher there really didn't seem to care if he made it out of 4th grade or not. sad really... But now he has a teacher that is really working with him and really cares about his success!! He cried when he saw the enrollment packet for 5th grade. Thanks to the teachers at Oveta my kids are doing great in their Education! This school really has their ducks in a row in all aspects. I'm very please my children have such a wonderful school to attend while here on Ft Hood."

    "I had heard great things about this school, however, now that my daughter is attending Pre-K here, I have a different opinion. The teacher, so far, is not very communicative and has not assessed the children to see what their knowledge level currently is and have a base as to compare later on in the school year. My daughter comes home everyday not wanting to go back, which is very unusual. And I feel as the class material is not challenging for her. The school's location and layout makes it somewhat difficult to have an easy and smooth traffic flow. Pre-K through 1st grade students get release at 2:40pm and 2nd through 5th grade get releases at 2:45pm, so basically, at the same time, it is unorganized and it makes it very difficult to pick-up your child. Ironically, Pre-K gets released in the farthest point from the school entrance. I feel that as to how unorganized the system is at this school, they focus on enforcing policies that are not as important, and are really strict about them, disregarding, important issues and finding ways to improve/solve them. And, there's no PTA. I am overall very disappointed with our experience with this school so far."
