My children love HES. The teachers are wonderful an caring. Miss Warren is the best principal ever. It has a home feeling to it as soon as you walk in. Everyone that works there is always friendly and helpful. I wish that HES could be put up to the 12th grade. HES is a wonderful school.

I graduated from HES many a year ago (I'm now a senior), and I am very happy to have had the chance to attend such a fine school. The teachers and faculty (especially the principal) are some of the most caring people I have ever known. The environment of HES is one that is very well suited for learning. This school has many extracurricular activities for the students, such as dances and parties for most of the major holidays. I'm not a parent yet, but I'll definitely be sending my children to this school in the future.
