Heatherwood elementary is a wonderful school. Parent involvement and teacher's dedication make it one of the best in Boulder County.
Heatherwood is a family friendly school with strong parent involvement and a great sense of community. Our family lives in a rural setting, so it is especially important that my children feel part of a community at school.
Heather wood Elementary is a great school with an outstanding community. Both teachers and parents do their very best to make sure the children have a great experience at school. The school always get high scores on the national tests. Our open enrollment is up due to all of these reasons, and everyone speaks very warmly about the school. We are proud to be part of the Heather wood family.
The staff at this school go above and beyond regarding the care and compassion that is given to each student.
I feel this school is so family oriented and really WANTS parent participation. One always feels welcome there.
Heatherwood's principal, teachers, para-educators and staff are the best any parent and child can ask for. Compared to schools that I have been involved with in the past, there was always someone telling you which teacher you should hope to get or to hope you don't get. In Heatherwood, any teacher you get, you know they are going to be a wonderful and caring teacher and that your child is going get a great education. They are very dedicated to our children and it's an awesome community that I'm proud to be a part of.
I love this school because the teachers are excellent. I cannot complain about one teacher my children have ever had. Also, the school does tons of fun activities to get families involved.
Our son attended Heatherwood not so very long ago in the scheme of things. Now in college, his love of learning and respect for academia emphasized at Heatherwood, remains. The teachers were engaged, caring and most importantly provided a base of loving to learn that will last his lifetime.
This is an absolutely awesome school. The sense of community is great. The school is right in the center of an older community, and many of the families live here, walk their kids to school, talk, hang out, have playgroups and get-togethers. It is a great place to live and learn. The teachers are so friendly and know all of the kids by name. The school has open class rooms, it recycles, has recently changed their lunch menu to a much healthier alternative (with salad bar). I can't say enough good things about Heatherwood Elementary. Our kids just love it, and so do we!
Heatherwood Elementary is a great school. The teachers and staff are dedicated to teaching the children. The parents offer tremendous support. There are extra activities coordinated by the PTO for both academic and social events.
HW has worked hard at making the school a true community school, where kids and parents work toward making the school great. The teachers/staff/principal are wonderful, caring people, and my kids just love to go to school. The school is also a ecocycle Green Star school, a recipient of SRTS grant funding to encourage kids to ride/walk to school, and offers great after school activities for kids, including intramurals and HW University.
We have an incredible community of families, teachers and admin that put children first. Everyone goes the extra step to make sure that all kids have a nurturing, safe, and challenging enviroment to learn and grow. Our school educates all aspects of a child... the emotional, social, athletic, artistic, musical and intellectual. Our principal is very involved in the daily goings on of the school and knows every child by name. We have many social events for families throughout the year. It is a very close knit community of friends and family. My children love going to school and at the end of the day that is what is important.
Long term retention of faculty and principal, intramural program, full gymnastics PE program, community service program at local food bank, bike and walk to school, character development program and recognition, active PTO with community building events, active Girl and Cub Scout program in every grade, after school music program, one mile fun run 'Heather Heatherwood' modeled after the 10K Bolder Boulder; after school affordable programs on-site through Heatherwood University, very high percentage of parental involvement and volunteering, amazing principal- I went to see him once and he was handing out milks to the kindergartners in the lunch line
Great teachers, great administration, great parent community all supporting the education of our children
The sense of community at our school is amazing!People get along and support each other. Our faculty really care about the students and their families. Our parents really care about the teachers. I have 2 kids who are in (have been in Heatherwood) my oldest just moved to middle school this year and I can't say enough about our school. We had the opportunity to go to private and charter schools and we chose Heatherwood because of the outstanding academic opportunities, the good balance of art/music & athletics that are still so important at our school! Bonus, it's our neighhood public school! Win/win in our book! As well as being a distinguised school academically, our kids are taugh to give back and care for our environment. We have many community service activities and we are one of a handful of Green Star schools, partnering with Eco-Cycle to build a model Zero Waste community at our school. Great kids are coming out of this school!
Heatherwood has provided exactly the right type of education for my kids. They receive individual attention when they need it, feel pride in their school and schoolmates, they learn respect for themselves and others. I notice the commitment of teachers, parents and administration working in partnership to create a great experience for kids. The focus and priorities are connected to the community. They use technology appropriately and give kids the opportunity to excel. I trust they would use the funds awarded to make Heatherwood even better.
Our community! We have a strong community 'feel' which breeds a confidence among teachers, students and parents.
Mr O, the principal is awesome and really loves the school. He makes a point to know each kids name and really listens to parents and teachers. the school has great community and functions as part of the larger community.
Heatherwood Elementary School is supportive of its students, teachers and parents. It is not only a school but a community builder.
