Built in 1966, Tubbs Elementary School is a communications and technology magnet school. The building has been renovated twice. Additions have included 11 classrooms, a gymnasium, a library, a computer lab and an expanded cafeteria. All classrooms are self-contained.

Strong emphasis is placed on computer-assisted learning and technology at Tubbs. In addition to having two or three computers in every classroom, students have access to two computer labs, a computerized reading lab and a broadcast journalism lab. There are 132 computers on campus, with units in classrooms, the library office and a computer office. All are connected to the Internet.

Twelve Macintosh computers are used in the reading lab. A multi-media lab used by students in kindergarten through second grade is equipped with 24 Macintosh computers, while there are 24 Windows computers in a computer lab used by students in the third through sixth grades. The two computer labs, computerized reading lab and broadcast journalism lab are housed together in a four-room pod. The school also has a complete computerized library system with access to the Texas Library Connection.

Students in kindergarten through the sixth grade may take advantage of Spanish instruction, and technology is integrated into core subject areas. The building is wired to provide broadcast capabilities in every classroom.

The parent teacher association, which enjoys the support of many parents, hosts book fairs during the school year. The organization also conducts fund-raisers and provides volunteer support to teachers and administrators. The parent teacher association provided funds for the school's stage and primary play area.

Special events held each year include health and safety fairs, Earth Day, Technology Night, Young Authors Day, A Read-A-Thon, Play Day and an Accelerated Point Fair. Parents participate with students in Moms-and-Muffins, Dads-and-Donuts and Kindergarten Literacy Reading Day.
