Excellent school. I don't know what the couple of other posts are about. I have had an excellent experience with both the teachers and the admin. I had a concern about a child in the school and asked to meet with Mrs. Conde. She not only met and listened to the concerns but took them very seriously and resolved the issue. My child is very happy in this school. They work the kids hard but it helps them get ready for high school.
It is our first year at Hart and I am most impressed with Music/Band Director Mr. A and math teacher Mr. Polon. I am only putting them first because these two people are really extraordinary. However the other teachers my son had are just as amazing - Ms. Smith for LA, Ms. Yang for Science, Ms. Jane Marker for Art, Ms. Boni for Home economics, Ms. Ottaway for french/spanish. Very nice scholl and environment. The only negative feedback i have is related to annual registration process - the line to get all the forms is tremendous, it took me 2 hours to complete registration and get my son's schedule.... there must be a better way to handle it?
This school has a great divide within it's staff and admin. Admin likes to sweep things under the rug. They have some great teachers there who do not get the support they need and have some teachers who should go find another line of work for all our childrens sake.
