Hearst is the only school in the area with a gifted GATE program. The resources are incredible. The parent community puts on many events throughout the year and the PTA funds art, music, and more.

An outstanding school, with an emphasis on academics. Teachers at most grade levels work together so curriculum is similar in all classrooms. Parent involvement is high and it is easy to volunteer for various activities, PTA positions & Foundation board.

This school is over rated. The parents are over involved to the point that their child can do no wrong. The parents buy the teachers and principals support (for their bully children) at the auctions and fundraisers. The bullying has gone on for decades. Parents whose children are bullied move out of the area and you never hear from them. The resource teacher is a gossip, so be careful if you need any kind of learning assistance...everyone in the school will find out about it.

This school did not even bother telling us that our grandson was reading below grade level. What kind of communication is this? We did not find out until the next year. We could have placed him in a summer reading class. This is not what we expected when we sacrificed to get him into this school. It is also something that should have been covered in parent teacher meetings, as well as in daily communications.

Our child has now promoted from Hearst. Looking back, our experiences were very positive. The quality, overall, of the teachers was excellent. Their commitment to the students success was obvious. Since a change in principal leadership a few years ago, the morale of the teachers and parent volunteers grew dramatically. The new principal, Jamie Jorgensen, leads with enthusiasm, joy, and inclusiveness.

This is our first year at Hearst, and we have been very impressed with the kindergarten team. The K-teachers work as a true kindergarten teaching team. The teachers are experienced and still very engaged in their professional development. With a grant, Mrs. Baker, along with parents, began a Hearst garden club. My daughter has fed worms, planted seeds and watched them grow, and then harvested the produce, enjoying salad with her fellow gardeners! Every week, kindergartners have a computer lab, library lab, music lesson, and P.E. session. The kids also have art lessons taught by parents. There is strong parent support and involvement at Hearst and a community spirit. The school acknowledges and rewards the kids success, and Principal Jorgenson s weekly message, Make it a great week or not, the choice is yours, builds a sense of responsibility and pride in the kids.

This is our first year at Hearst and we are having a wonderful, 'healthy' experience so far. We have had many undesirable experiences at other schools and this year my son finally said....'I want to stay at this school!'. Principal Jorgensen is really making a great effort to improve an already magnificent school and the parents come together as a close community and really support each other....We all appear to have the same goal which is to offer our children a wonderful school experience. With art corp and band program, my son is having a blast! Kudos to Hearst....they have the right idea of what a school should be...FUN!
