Hugh Goodwin by far exceeded my expectations. I was nervous about sending my oldest to Kindegarten. Everyone made the transition so easy. My daughter absolutely loved her class. She loves this school so much that she didn't want to be out for the summer:) I would recommend this school to anyone. All staff are knowledgable and friendly. The principal really cares for all the students.

Couldn't be happier with my daughter's education at Hugh Goodwin. Great environment. Great Staff. Great Principal. I would recommend this school to all parents. Fast as well as slow learners are equally challenged. Keep up the good work Mrs. Reed!

My child started Hugh Goodwin this year and we both LOVE it. It has a great environment for learning and some of the best teachers in the state. My child was struggling in school until we got to Hugh Goodwin and the teachers took notice and gave her the much needed help she wasn't getting from her previuos school. Hugh Goodwin is all about their students. Excellent school...Highly recommend!!

This school is great! They are always so friendly when I visit. The teachers have extremely high expetations. The 'ARTS' that are taught are exceptional! My child would not get this type of education anywhere else...

This is a really great school with emphasis on academics, the arts and literature. I wish it was K-6th grade. My child loves this school and the staff. They really care about your kids.

I have a kindergartener at Hugh Goodwin. Now that is an Academy for the Arts, I have been most impressed by the way the teachers work to involve the community in projects such as painted furniture auctions, musicals, and as artists in residence. During the year, there are photographers, poets, storytellers, sculptors, and other artists who come in to work with the students. The best part is...it all ties to the Arkansas state standards. I am very happy with this school.

My son hated school. He is in the 1st grade and absolutely loves his teachers at Hugh Goodwin. He is challenged in his learning to prepare him for benchmark but they are able to do it in a fun way without scaring the kids to death over it!

I have a son in First Grade at Hugh Goodwin. He has developmental problems, and last year in K. I was so afraid that he (and the teacher) would be miserable...I can't rave enough about this school. He bypassed all expectations and was never singled out, ridiculed or made to feel that he wasn't smart enough, or different in ANY way. His self esteem has risen like I never imagined. Not only that, he's making all A's, and that is something that no one involved in his therapies ever imagined.
