My daughter just finished K, and had a wonderful experience. The teachers were exceptional, and at the end of the K session, my daughter was reading 7 letter words, and both adding and subtracting well. HMCRA helps teach respect for your fellow person, and world views. This is something most other schools lack, no matter how high their scores are. HMCRA should be commended for their First Pass approach. A wonderful, diverse school. 660/800. Good job HMCRA. Keep it going.
I knew the first moment that I walked into the school that this was the place for my children. Five years later we maintain the same level of comfort and commitment to this community. HMCRA is a family. Everybody knows my child's name, it has been this way since the beginning. The people at Harvey Milk have helped build the character of our daughter not to mention push her to be the bright, smart child that she is. Sande, Glenn, Michelle, Alisa and all of the teachers who are helping to teach, love and raise the kids, you rock!
My son attends the first grade at HMCRA and he is very happy. My husband and I are very pleased with the school setting and the pricipal is awesome, as are the parents and teachers. Children from all walks of life attend this school and are never discriminated against, making those who come from different social and cultural backgrounds feel accepted, appreciated, and valued. Coach Glenn (the coach) adds a whole new dynamic to the school, and the children and parents totally admire him. This school has been a blessing to our family and other parents I know. The before and after school programs are fantastic,and no child is excluded. You have to see it to believe it. I recommend this school to parents who want their children to be in a very diverse setting, and in a nurturing and loving environment. This school is very unique and I love it.
Wonderful urban school, filled with amazing teachers who are very committed to the children.We loved the small class sizes and the principle who is the core to this charming school. It's a real gem.
I have had 2 daughters attend this school over the past 8 years. It is such a wonderful place for kids. The teachers are young and active and take on a personal approach to teaching each child. There is strong family connection to the school and everyone knows your child's name.
