    "I pulled my daughter out of Houston after a terrible first six months. Her teacher was Ms. Spalding for the second grade. She was a deplorable teacher. She was not organized, she gossiped about the students, she was rude and ignorant. I met with the principal about her but the principal seemed to not care about happened at her school at all. My daughter is now much happier at a different school and is doing extremely well. If you must send your child to Houston avoid Ms. Spalding."

    "I attended this school in the 80's and my child attended Houston as well. I must say that I still love this school. Ms. Newman is an awesome principal and she genuinely cares about her students. I love the front office staff as well as the teachers. Each year my child had an amazing teacher. I definitely would recommend this school to other. Don't be fooled by ratings from prior students or bitter parents. This school is truly a great school with teachers and staff that cares."

    "I attended Houston for nine years in the 50's. I don't know how the school has changed since then but I would pit my education against anyone in my age group. Even then the school was outdated and yet the staff always put the needs of the students first. I hope that this tradition continues to live on."

    "above average we have great things in our school like art music gym computers. But the only thing our school is missing is Spanish and other languages."
