The secret jewel of the school system! The new campus is spacious and practical. The school staff reflects years of careful hires by the amazing principal--she radiates quiet confidence and it shows throughout the school. Many students benefit from the continuous learning calendar, but it may not be right for all families. We find it is good insurance against skills fading in the summer and boosts attention with frequent breaks during the year. Compare test scores, visit all the elementary schools, and keep the secret!
Love this school!! We moved here from Little Rock and the transition was an excellent one. My daughter was going to the 2nd grade and was welcomed with open arms. I never felt like I had a problem that wasn't addressed. They have accelerated reader goals and each time my daughter met hers, she got to go on a field trip. They do an excellent job of keeping parents informed of what's going on. After missing several snow days, the school reached out to the parents to ask our input on how the students should make them up. They have eat out for education where a portion of the proceeds go towards the school and they also collect Box Tops to help raise money. I can't wait to see how much more she is going to learn and grow in the 3rd grade.
Not happy with this school, especially my child's third grade teacher. They have done fundraisers all year pertaining to the new playground. And I don't mean 1 or 2 fundraiser's, there have been too many to count! They haven't been on one field trip. My child went from A's and B's at her last school to C's, D's and F's at this school. I have had to reteach many concepts to her because the teacher would not answer questions when she didn't understand something and made my child afraid to ask for help. I have sent notes to school requesting to be contacted concerning things and was blatently ignored. Needless to say, my child will not be attending this school ever again after this year. New school or not!
My child is diagnosed with ADHD. In my dealings with the principal and teachers, I found them to be unprofessional and even discriminating toward my child regarding her special education needs. If your child has any type of special learning needs, I would recommend you find a school that cares about the education of ALL children, and not just those that do not require any attention outside the norm.
We are a military family and this is the 4th school my children have attended. HH has a ratio of Male staff that provide great role models/leadership that has been amazing for our family with Dad deployed. Along with the female staff that has been super supportive, professional and dedicated. I love the level of team the school has with Friday Morning awards which all children/teachers attend. Again I can't say enough. Thank you Happy Hollow!
Excellent learning environment and great teachers which encourge the students to achieve their maximum skills
Happy Hollow is a great school that is wonderful for children at all levels. I have 3 children there who are all very different. Two are very gifted and my oldest has aspergers syndrome (on the autism spectrum). The teachers worked tirelessly to get him on grade level and he's improved dramatically in the 3 years we've been there. Add that kind of education to the new school builiging ready in Aug of 2011 and it will be the most sought after school in Fayetteville.
This is a home away from home environment! Kids love it and teachers do too.
Happy Hollow Elem. provides a safe, friendly learning environment. The dedicated teachers and staff work hard to meet the needs for all their students.
Our name describes us best! We are happy to serve our students and our community with a caring and educational environment that promotes parent involvement and student achievement.

Happy Hollow Elementary School is a happy, caring school with teachers who work tirelessly to make sure students attain their academic goals. Happy Hollow's comprehensive literacy program, interventions, and continuous learning calendar help students succeed!
Great teachers, many dedicated parents, love the continuious calendar. It's great for learning. The Intersessions offer wonderful classes for new experiences.
We have a diverse group of kids, that bring so much to our school. The teachers are well trained and are over achievers to get the best education to better serve their students.
My son is in Kindergarten this year and had a rough time adjusting. His teacher has been very understanding and patient with me and my child to help him with the transition.
This school provides top education for basic education, I attended the school until I graduated from the elementary in 2003. The teachers are terrific, and that is all there is to say. My problems with the school are at a minimum!
Happy Hollow is the best school in the Fayetteville school district. The continous learning calendar and Reading 1st model really make Happy Hollow a cut above the rest. The faculty is truly a team working always for the betterment of the students. I wouldn't have my child anywhere else!
My son has just finished kindergarten at Happy Hollow. We had a wonderul experience. The art and music programs were really fun for my child. The physical structure of the school could definitely use updating but the teachers were great! The 'year round' schedule was beneficial for the learning process. Unfortunately this is the only 'year round' school in the district so if you have other children in middle school or high school scheduling vacations and family outings can be difficult. Childcare options are limited because of the 'year round' schedule.
