Amount of homework: Don't know
June 10, 2015
Their homework was weak and the teachers didn't truly care about homework. The homework given didn't really test or challenge the students and was pointless.

This is school is top notch. Our children attended up until 4th grade and then we had to move out of state. Fortunately our children were well ahead of the students in their new school due to the education they received at Hull Elementary. We moved to Ohio and they have a very good educational system so this says a lot!

I love Jane D Hull! They are very informative and keep everyone up to date. They are truly there for the kids. They have that family atmosphere and want families to become involved, not only with their kids but all that is beind done at the school. They are big on volunteering your time and are very helpful. There is alot to do with the kids and in the classrooms. They are always open to suggestions and seem to have a well-rounded group of people on the PTO. This is a very positive and encouraging campus. My oldest went through there and has made friends which he has kept now through middle school. My younger 2 are still there and have many, many friends and know that they can turn to their teachers for anything. I really like how they approach and teach "bullying". My kids are aware and have learned so much from that. They know the difference and will stand up with their friends. It just brings out the character in them. I have seen them mature and grow into well-versed kids. It's awesome!

My school is terrific. It is a breath of fresh air. My child absolutely loves the teachers that teach at this school, the cirriculum they have at this school to better educate their students are outstanding. They are an A+ school and I totally agree that they should be. My child does not want to go to any other elementary school. They keep students and parents informed of upcoming events and testings through school newsletters and emails. This school believes in every student that attends and improving their weaknesses and building up their strengths. Way to go Jane D. Hull Elementary!!

I have two children that attend Hull. We absolutely love this school, the staff is exceptional and I believe go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. I am amazed that the front office staff seems to know everyone by name that comes through the front door. Each of the teachers that my children have been fortunate to have are excellent communicators, and truly care about the children. We chose this school, and my children had been attending on a open enrollment basis. I see the atmosphere as very positive and enthusiastic. I am proud to be associated with this school and the staff.

My two children attended Hull this year and I have been extremely happy. The teachers have been excellent and the administrative staff are very helpful and friendly. I am in the school volunteering at least twice a week and always feel welcome and appreciated. I am confused by earlier comments that parents have felt differently. I have not had much contact with the principal, but I have found her to be friendly when I have seen her and I have not heard anything negative, except for on this website. I have a son with food allergies and the cafeteria staff has been terrific. Instead of feeling different because of his allergy free meals, he feels special. It is clear that the lady who runs the cafeteria loves her job and the students. I would highly recommend this school to any parent.

For years this school has been declining. The principal is a complete joke. Maybe one day district will take a good look at how and what she is doing. The teachers to some degree are excellent and that depends on who you get. Some just ignore the "problem child" and there is no recourse if there is a problem with kids on the play ground. Its like the kids run the school and play ground aids just sit around and do nothing.. There are other schools in the area check them out.. I will be so glad when my child is out of there this year

My son has gone here for 4 years and it keeps getting worse. The principal is a joke. I volunteered for 3 years on a daily basis and never even got a thank you. Avoid this school and their rude principal and office employees. We will attend a charter school next year.

This is our 4th year at Hull and I have to say we are DONE! My child is a very good student and gets along with all peers. This year has proven to be very unsuccessful. He his picked up terrible study habits as his teacher has the "do it later" approach. The principal is a joke! She does not back up the students if there is a situation, wand ill never take responsibility for any wrong-doing by a teacher. She has run off many great volunteers and their families from the school. We will be going to a new school Fall 12/13 and can't wait to finally be a part of a new successful school.

We moved here in July and was extremely nervous for my son to start with a new school, since we have never had to move before. My son is in 6th grade and he absolutely loves this school! He loves his teachers very much. He talks about them daily and looks forward to going to class. He looks up to all three of his 6th grade teachers. Being we came from a very small school, I knew that he would be challenged acedemically. Since his first progress report, he has had all A's! When I ask him what has helped him get such good grades, he responded to me "his teachers have helped him find ways of how to learn better". I have little interaction with the school and have only had communication with the secretary and three of my sons teachers and are all very pleasant. We are extremely fortunate that they have made our adjustment a wonderful experience. I high recommend this school.

As a whole, Hull Elementary is a good school. However, during the four years my child has attended Hull the main issue I have is with the arogant principal. She thinks that she is never wrong, nor is her staff. Instead of making the volunteers feel welcome, she beats them down. She never takes ownership of an issue, she passes the buck and hides behind her staff. She has run off so many families and volunteers that the numbers are down significantly. There had to let a kindergarten teacher, a 1st grade teacher and a 2nd grade teacher go. She does not know how to manage people or befriend them. She is extremely fake and will backstab anyone to get out of a situation. The way she handles requests for one on one meetings with the principal is by telling the parent that the meeting is not necessary. Time for me to look for another school because of this principal. There are several other families who feel the same way. Not sure why she treats her volunteers this way. Guess she will find out how to run a school with no volunteers - - and that will probably happen faster than she thinks!

I found the school disappointing because my first experience was a bit of a "snafu". I had turned in an application for open enrollment and was given a great and warm welcome. I even got a tour of the school on that same day. The next day, I was told that they were not having any open enrollment and denied my application. I called the school district who helped me with the situation. This bad start did not help establish trust with this administration.

We recently relocated to Chandler. We carefully researched the area we wanted to live in. We chose to live near Hull because of its excellent reputation. It certainly has lived up to everything we had read. You could not ask for a better Administration staff, teacher staff, etc. And, we are very please with the academic standard.

The staff & Teachers always amaze me at how much they care for the students. About a year ago my family moved to Maricopa, which is 20 minutes from Jane D. Hull Elementary. My husband & I (and our daughters) love the school so much I drive 20 minutes (each way) for them to continue attending. Which means I spend 2 hours a day in the car in order for my daughters to continue going to a school where the staff treats you like family. Teachers go out of their way to make the classroom fun & educational at the same time. After 5 years of attendance I could go on for days on how much we love Hull!

Hull is a school of wonderful teachers and administrators with programs and curriculum that has always motivated and challenged our child. The teaching methods are very collaborative within the grade levels so it exposes the kids to a variety of styles, activities, etc. that stimulate their minds and get them excited about learning. The family community at Hull is dedicated to supporting the kids at all activities and it is so much fun to share that year after year with each other while our kids grow together. Hull has earned its A+ rating for many, many reasons!!!!!

My daughter is about to graduate 2nd grade from Hull. I love it- the principal is so involved and so are all the teachers. They really go above and beyond here. Parental involvement is so high- often there is a 'lottery' to see which parents can volunteer for certain activities because there are so many wanting to help (or attend field trips). Speaking of field trips, the last two my child went on were free, no cost to us. The others were minimally priced, after all, the school isn't trying to profit off it. Hull was recently award the rating of A+ school, and we are all so proud. My child will be entering the self contained classroom of gifted students as a 3rd grader and I am very thrilled with how proactive the educators are here.

I am definitely happy with Hull Elementary. I work fulltime and so I can't be as involved as the other moms, but I find it is super easy to communicate with the teachers and principal alike. I just type them a quick e-mail, and I get very timely and appropriate responses. Not to mention the fact that I have a written record of the exchange if, God forbid, issues persist (I've never run into any problems, though). To the person who said their grandkids can't afford field trips: many of us who are in a position to help out a needy child would do so in a heartbeat. Let the teacher know what the situation is. S/he isn't a mind-reader! Most have the child's best interest at heart and will make sure the child isn't left out, just so long as they know about it, and we parents can help too.

I just want to say, when teachers bring in extra carricular activities, and field trips, the student always has to pay. But some students parents are out of work, and can't pay. If they don't pay they can not go on these trips. So they have to sit alone while there whole class is out having fun. The student feels terrible and is ostrisize. I think that is terrible. That is my comment. I am a grandparent. Thank you.

Hull is an expectional school, one that brightly outshines the rest in i have dealt with from, hawaii, oregon, california and throughout the rest of arizona. Jane d. Hull understands the importance of child educational and growth and how the parents are an integral part of solutions to progress. Noteworthy are the outstanding music, cats, special education and counseling programs. Equally postive and wonderful are the event activites, parental involvement opportunties, childcare, newsletters and internet accessibilities. Thank you for a job well done!

My son finished his first 2 years of school here. In K we really felt good about the teachers and the education program, but entering into first grade we had alot of poor communication from the teachers end. Things would occur at school that we felt were very important to mention to us, as parents, but she never approached. When we mentioned things we felt as if they were trivial to her. I feel that bodily harm and emotional hurts are important for a parent to be informed of. Better communication whould have made us much happier and would have left us with a better feeling for JD Hull.

Principal Weyenberg gets a rave review from me too. As for the poster who said they've never seen her - well that person has obviously not attended any school functions as she is at every one of them - band concerts, choral concerts, 6th grade DARE graduation, school carnival... literally every single function I've been to for my 2 kids. Oh and even if you don't go to any function, you will find her acting as traffic coordinator before AND after school! The one complaint I would give is that amount of homework, at least for the 1st grade - it was more than my 6th grade son's!

Hull is a good public school. The principal is very popular among teachers in the district and has her pick of the very best. Parents are very involved and provide instruction for Art Masterpiece, Young Astronuats, Junior Achievement and after school clubs. Academics could be stressed more than they seem to be at this school. Also, too much time is spent on 'fun' activities including 'buddy' programs, parties, and fun fieldtrips such visits to water parks.

I have children enrolled for the the 2004-2005 school year. I am concerned about class sizes and high teacher to student ratios and overall huge number of total studen body. Is this school overcrowded? Are the children getting the best education?

Our family has been with Janice Weyenberg since 1996 when she was at Jacobson Elementary. She is the reason we came to Hull. We see her smiling face everyday, as she makes it a point to direct traffic to keep the pick up line fair and flowing, also to interact with all of her parents and students. She knows the names and grades of her students and remembers them for years after they have moved on to other schools. She is remarkable at problem solving and communication. Is it no wonder that a lot of our teachers have been with Jan since before Hull was built? Someone would have to be near sited not to notice our Principal. Her spirit shines through every teacher and student that has the privilege of gracing the doors at Hull. I give this school the highest rating. Thank you Jan for everything.

This school may do fine compared to other Arizona schools. However, comparing it nationally it is extremly disappointing. Teaching methods very outdated. Full day kindegarten is the norm in most other states. These students fall bahind from the start, trying to learn everything in less than three hours a day. I have yet to see this principal once. A big change from the last school where we saw the principal everyday, in the morning and after school. The parents are very involved here, that is encouraging.

My daughter will enter 2nd grade at JDH this school year and I could not be more pleased with the quality of her educational and social experiences at JDH. Caring administrative, teaching and support staff make each and every day a pleasure for students and parents! We researched extensively before our relocation to Chandler and are confident that JDH was the right choice for our daughter's future academic success.

My daughter is in the first grade at JDH. Just to see her get excited about going to school makes me feel good as a parent. The teachers and staff at this school care about the students and their families, and it shows. With so many students in the classrooms these days, it makes it hard for the teachers. They need and depend on parental help in and out of the classroom. The children reap the benefits of our helping the teachers and the school . Anyone who participates in their childs education will find that the school shines brighter and our children learn more!! I am proud to have my child a student in JDH and she is proud also!

My daughter is in 1st grade at JDH. I am very pleased with the level of communication between teacher/school and parents. They are working very hard towards meeting standards and quarterly report cards describe to great detail how the student is progressing. Their proactive attitude to maintaining an optimum learning atmosphere in the classrom is admirable. I have first hand experience with their efforts and am a very satisfied parent.
