Hinkley School is a wonderful school, bursting full of talented teachers and students. Our test scores have sky rocketed. It may be out in the middle of nowhere, but don't judge a book by it's cover. Hinkley School is helping to mold our future leaders. Take a closer look at whats going on in Hinkley you'd be surprised. God Bless
My daughter transferred to Hinkley from Barstow Intermediate. This is her 2nd year and I have to say this school is excellent. It is small and personal and the teachers work hard and are totally devoted to their students. I have never seen a school quite like this. My daughter is thriving and I hate to think that in a couple years she will have to go back to Barstow for high school.
This school is the best. My teachers treat me and everyone around me great. Noone has bothered me since I came. Once there is a prolem the principle gets right on top of it.
My daughter has been attending Hinkley for 5 years and is very well liked and treated. I have not whatsoever seen any unequal treatment with any student and as a parent am involved in her education, the teachers are awesome Especially Mrs. Espinoza, but they are all great! I am also a former student from there and my two other daughter are well on their way on attending. Above all The students are great they are very respectful and violence is very minimal there. I cannot express my Gratitude to the wonderul staff at Hinkley School.
Hinkley School is a great school. Unfortunately sometimes there are some students and parents that feel their academic needs are not met and I believe that happens at every school site. I have not experienced that with my own children. The teachers have educated my children with passion and strength which I feel confident my children will take this learning experience with them each year. Thank you Hinkley School Teachers keep up the great work with our children my support for you is never-ending!
Hinkley School has been a big disappointment. I had two children attend for a total of five years, it is probably fine for most kids, but our children need accelerated learning opportunities, computer skills, and reading skills which have not been available or not taught very well. I did lean one thing, the more often I visited the school the better education my children received. The principal lacks skills important to his job. Over all, even with poor leadership, some of the staff tried their best. P.E., history, and language arts classes were a joke. My children attend with both principals, the first one, I believe was a Mr. Costar was okay the principal who replaced him - well he is the one I spoke about here.
Hinkley School is one of the finest schools in our school district. The quality of teacher instruction is the best out of all the schools in our area. Extracurricular activities abound and parent involvement is very high.
We have just relocated and I must say kudo's to the staff at Hinkley School we were welcomed by everyone and my son seems to be liking to get up in the mornings now....we will just have to see as to the rest but so far so good. Thank You
I attended this school from 1993 to 2001 and I must say, the enviorment and academics are outstanding. I was fully prepared for highschool and my future endeavors. The teachers were fantastic!
Wonderful small town school with kind, loving teachers and administrators. They go the extra mile. They treat children with love and meet the needs far beyond the classroom.
I graduated the 8th grade from here 3 years ago. I attended since kindergarden, when Mr. Costa was principal. The teachers there remain lifelong friends to me, and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. My thanks to Holly Bowser who fought to keep the Bilingual programs. Because of the motivation from my teachers, I h=am well on my way to college, and excel in english AP! thank you Hinkley Middle!
My family moved to Hinkley 4 1/2 years ago. My girls stayed at their old school the first year, cause I wasn't sure I would like Hinkley School. I talked myself into putting them there, because of all the wonderful comments about the school from friends and family. My girls are finishing their 3rd year at Hinkley Elem./Middle and we couldn't love it more. Great teachers! They are caring and compassionate. I don't see any unfairness to children that have less than others. If a child is cruel to others, than shame on their parents for raising them to be condescending. As for Hinkley School, hats off to our great teachers.
I am a former graduate of Hinkley School and my children now attend and have also graduated from Hinkley School. It is one of the finest schools in the district. The teachers take the time to know each student on an individual basis and give them the attention they need. They are caring people who love their job and our test scores show that. The teachers not only give their time but their love. I am proud of our school.
Whoever wrote the last review in here is dead wrong. I attended Hinkley and came from a 'poor' family and was one of the most well liked and well treated persons attending that school. The teaching is very equal.
The leadership at this school has a lot to be desired. Some children are treated well, but if you come from a poor family- look out! The education isn't equal at this school.
