My Daughter attended Ben Hulse this past year and the school is still amazing. Mrs Rood is now the principal and the entire staff is top notch. In Spring of 2014 it was just awarded another California Distinguished School awards.

Ben Hulse has worked wonders with my children. They received my slightly autistic child late in the yr because the other elementary overdosed him and treated him badly. He fit right in and they were great with him. My other child did really well even with some of his behavior problems. Ben Hulse staff worked well with me to correct these problems. I am very thankful for everything everyone at this school has done for my children

I am a parent of two children. I cannot say enough good about Ben Hulse School. The faculty and staff are tremendous. They really go the extra mile in assuring that the students get a great education. The administration works hard to keep the school in good running order. I've been extremely happy with this school and with the school distric as a whole.

I have worked in several schools and Districts. The thing that impresses me about Ben Hulse is the professionalism. The teachers and administration try their best to meet the needs of every child. At times a parent may get disgruntled with Ben Hulse because of it's high expectations. Ben Hulse has over 1000 students and I feel they do an excellent job making their school safe and friendly. They have 3 different parent drop-off zones so I'm not quite sure why one of the parent comments mentioned that this is a negative. Every year they have tried to make the traffic pattern better for parents.

We've recently moved to the district and have had nothing buy problems with the shcool. The Principal and Staff do not look out for the best interest of the children and are un-interested in parent input. The school is borderline overcrowded and the campus is unsecure. There are no true pick up and drop off locations that serve safe for the children. Beware of combination classes. Because we enrolled late my child has been placed in this combination class and it's chaotic at best. Not much learning going on. If you are thinking of moving to this area...don't! This is actually one of the better schools in the 'Valley' as they call it here.

It was a California distinguished school in 2003, I think. Principal loves his work and loves being around kids. K-3 have class limit of 20 students so that teachers can really get to know and help them. Reading groups are made up of students from several classes so that every student can be in the group that best fits his/her needs and progress. There are walking fieldtrips to nearby places of interest like the fire and police stations, the post office and city parks. There are also trips by bus. Last year's Halloween Carnival was great. It was held at the high school down the street. High school students put on an awesome haunted house in the gym, Ben Hulse PTO had booths, food and tractor-pulled train rides. There are lots of hands-on learning opportunities. Too bad the CA Legislature can't get the budget figured out.

After inquiring about schools in the Valley I was able to find out that Ben Hulse had one of the highest reputations in the Valley. I moved from El Centro To Imperial in order for my son to have a great education. My son is in 2nd grade already and he has been doing great. People that have listen to him read are always commenting on how good of a reader he is. I have no regrets what so ever in moving to Imperial for my son to have the best education he could get.
