The Principal is fantastic. Always available and around the school ensuring that everything is going well.
Excellent teachers who really challenge students .. I couldn't be happier.
Hirsch is awesome! As a teacher and parent I have the opportunity to work with an unbelievable staff, and a supportive, positive principal. Both my kids attended Hirsch from k-5th. Trust me, there isn't a better school out there in Tracy.
I think that the teachers at Hirsch are truly some of the best teachers out there! I will be extremely sad when my youngest daughter (my oldest went through Hirsch & is now at Williams) moves on to middle school! Thank you to all the excellent teachers at Hirsch....you really did make a difference!! Go Patriots!!
Awesome, awesome, awesome teachers and Mr. Fine is the best principle ever!! My kids love Wanda Hirsch!
We've got great kids, great parents, a great principal and a great staff!
They have a great staff that works there. They have a wonderful reading program for kids.
All of my children have had wonderful experiences at this school. The teachers are caring, and go above and beyond to provide excellent classromm experiences.
The teacher at this school don't care and the pricipal is useless I was happy to get my child out of that school he did not learn a thing while he attended the school
Unfortunately, we've had some bad experiences with two different teachers at Wanda Hirsch. However, we believe these may be isolated incidents because overall, our children have enjoyed their learning experiences with other teachers. Additionally, the office staff and principal are very helpful and supportive.
Wanda Hirsch is an awesome school. Our children have enjoyed their experience, the teachers have been awesome and the principal has an excellent rapport with both the staff and the kids. There is a great deal of parental involvement. I am thrill that this is 'our' school, and will fight relocating to keep it!
Wanda Hirsch has been an excellent school for my children. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a great school for their kids.The principal is awesome and the teachers give a 100% all the time. Wanda Hirsch has a student council program for 4th and 5th graders. Boys and Girls basketball after school for 4th and 5th graders a teacher volunteers to coach.This is my oldest son last year at Hirsch and we have had nothing but positive experiences at the school.
My two grandchildren have attended Wanda Hirsch since kindergarden (one is in 5th now). We have been so fortunate to have the very best teachers, Principal, and office staff at Hirsch school. The teachers, Principal, and office staff go 150% out of their way in helping with any problems or situations that come up -- and show the highest concern and care towards helping the children learn both academically and socially. Hirsch teachers, Principal, and office staff have consistently over the past 5 plus years treated my grandchildren with the utmost respect and concern - even in difficult times. I appreciate all they have done for us over the years, and when we have to move on to another school, we will greatly miss their caring ways and excellence in academic teaching. I recommend Hirsch Elementary to anyone looking for the very best school in Tracy for their children to attend.
For an elementary school in CA, this school attempts to maintain all aspects of learning, even with budget cuts. That includes sports and music. The teachers are really dedicated to their students. There is so much parental involvement, that the children truly benefit at all levels. Hirsch consistently out performs the other elementary schools in the district on state tests. I'm glad my children have had the opportunity to attend a school that has provided a couple of teachers, whose approach has been so unique, that I doubt they will ever have another teacher that's any better. Quite remarkable in that my kids are only in second and fourth grade.
This school has been terrific. The parents are very involved in the extracurricular activities as well as the PTA. We have many fun family nights. The administration and staff are exceptional. The are organized and are there to teach children. I moved into Tracy looking for a good school and was told to live in the Jefferson School District. I did my own research and decided to choose the Tracy School District. I don't know about the other elementary schools, but Wanda Hirsch is fabulous.
Our family has continued to be impressed by the high quality of teaching at this school. This is an award winning school with award winning teachers. There is a high level of parental involvement, also, the many field trips and level of these outings are unmatched at other schools.
Wanda Hirsch is a school that cares about its students , staff, and parents and does so in well cared for, bright and cheerful surroundings. As principle, John Fine does a great job making sure his teachers are happy so their energy can go into teaching, not grumbling. It is absolutly the best elementary in town.
