Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My student is in a 5th grade/6th grade split class. They say there are too many students in his grade, so they mixed the two grades together. Now it's March and we find out there are 4th graders in this class as well. During parent teacher conferences we sat in the hallway outside my son's classroom for an hour waiting to be seen. We finally just gave up. Last year in a different school his grades were 4 A's and 1 B. This last report card was 2 F's, 2 D's and a C. Thanks for nothing Hunter.

I am extremely unsatisfied w/the education, care and preparation that my children are receiving from this school. Whether it be the poor excuse they have for a menu that repeats ea. month (donuts/2 moz. sticks & fruit) to the lack of teaching that occures. My son's teacher informed us that they are an 'L1' school which means that they primarily service low income/military families, so they have to focus on getting the kids to do well on the state testing so they receive as much gov. funding as they can (2hr R, W, M, 30m Sc, SS) A computer rm & science lab that isn't used. Kids r required to go to the counselor reg. No Art teacher. My 6th grader rarely has homework and has yet to write a bk report -it's now the end of Nov. & when confronted w/our concerns, don't make any changes.

Hunter Elem School has been positive for my son, a SE student, and he is more confident. Also, its diverse student body. The teachers are allies of the students, and the ESSA staff are excellent. And Mrs. Pile, Principle, is an advocate for her students.

A very excellent diverse school. I would highly recommend sending your child to this school. My daughter was reading before finishing Kindergarten. Excellent staff.
