I have four children who have attended HCS, two of which are now in high school and two are still attending HCS. I have had an amazing experience at the school and feel that me kids are doing exceptionally both academically, socially, emotionally, and they have a very strong foundation in their faith. My high schoolers were very prepared to enter the public school sector and transitioned beautifully. They were fully prepared in all academic areas and their faith has carried them through in hard times at the high school level. The teachers at HCS are caring, loving, understanding, and they have incredible high expectations for the kids. I truly love this school and the staff!
This school teaches to a "one size fits all" student. If your child has ANY type of learning disability or challenge this is not the school for you. There are NO systems or procedures in place to red-flag any student with an IEP. My son has gone to this school for 9 years and every year I have to sit down with the teachers to explain his areas of weakness and remind them of his IEP accommodations. Most of the time the teachers didn't even know he had an IEP. And every year the accommodations are not met, so now he just makes due with what he can do. Elementary school you might be able to get away with, but middle school is not impressive. They treat the middle school kids like elementary kids. The middle school kids are on a very short leash not prepared for the autonomy you get in high school. So unless you plan on being a FULL TIME advocate for your child and his/her education you might look at another school.
