About Love Elementary School

Situated in Houston Heights, Love Elementary is a Neighborhood Vanguard School at 1120 W. 13th Street, where a collaborative community of teachers, parents, and the principal enhances student learning through enrichment programs. This is made possible by securing grants, forging community partnerships, and fostering volunteer support, ensuring a well-rounded education for every student.

Over a third of the students at Love Elementary choose to attend despite not being zoned for the school, drawn by its engaging, vibrant, and successful educational environment. This highlights Love’s appeal and the trust parents place in its ability to provide a superior educational experience.

Additionally, 20% of Love’s students are part of the HISD Neighborhood Vanguard Gifted/Talented program, showcasing the school’s commitment to nurturing the potential of gifted learners and offering specialized programs that cater to their unique needs.

An insightful observation by an HISD board member encapsulates the essence of Love Elementary perfectly: “It may not be officially designated as a ‘magnet’ school, but it is undeniably magnetic!” This statement reflects the school’s ability to attract and retain families seeking a quality education for their children, further underscoring its exceptional standing within the community.
