Shearn Elementary School (9802 Stella Link Road) Comment
One of my daughters will be entering 2nd grade next year, the other kinder. We have greatly benefitted from attending Shearn, which is also our neighborhood school. I went on magnet tours of other schools before ultimately choosing to attend Shearn, and what struck me most back then is what I'm still drawn to. Besides the data touting benefits of dual-language education, I love that Shearn has a dedicated librarian and music teacher. It is easy to be involved and 'known', and I've found teachers and staff very helpful, caring, and open to new ideas. There has been turnover in past years, but to be frank that's an HISD problem and not particular to this school (though Title 1 schools do present challenges to educators). Our principal retired in Dec after 12 committed years of service - our new principal, Ms. Romero, has a dual-language background and a great spirit, and we have high hopes of furthering academic achievement and encouraging the kids and families of Shearn to be proud of their school.
