It's a quaint little school in our neighborhood and my daughter loves it. She transitioned here from a private school and she likes Hemlock better than the private school. I will keep my kids here as long as they are being challenged, learning, and happy.
This used to be a great school. However, since a new principal arrived, things have changed dramatically. She does not address problems of any sort. If a problem is brought to her she blames either the child or the parent, or ignores it entirely. She does not listen to the experience or observations of the parent. She does not seek solutions at all. Many parents have transferred their children out since she has arrived. Very sad to see since there are some great teachers and kids at this school.
We had a poor experience. About 4 years ago our first son attended this school in the first grade. His teacher was new and didn't know how to work with our son, not the mold, introvert, very smart, and basically really board in class. She basically made him out to look like a problem child, a bad kid, and like a teacher would act towards a bully. We would get notes home all the time, believe she even got the principal involved. Yes we would talk to our child, be very stern, this was not acceptable for him to talk in class or outwardly showing his board-em and do our best to drive it home with him our family values, to listen to his teacher and get good grades. Believe me, we are not those type of parents that our child can do no wrong. At this point he hated school. After a teacher conference she attended she separated kids into groups depending on their academic levels, he was with advanced kids. For what seemed most of the school year he was a problem and for the rest he was all of an sudden advanced, doing just fine now...?? The next year we enrolled him in Etiwanda District,Solorio, he was admitted to GATE program and STAR test have been advanced for the past 3 years.
cause it's a great school they are always there for there students they really go the extra mile.They do alot of stuff for the kids like events and such.
because my nephew loves the school, he had made lots of friends and won many awards!

3 of my children have gone through Hemlock Elementary from Kindergarten on through 5th grade. The teaching staff, office staff, volunteers and the Principal are Absolutely the Best around! My children have been given the best start to their education! If I lived in Etiwanda or Rancho Cucamonga, I would drive my children to Hemlock each day knowing they are in the Best school! I would fully recommend Hemlock Elementary to any person anytime for their childs education!
