I recently withdrew my children from Hunters Glen for several reasons. 1.) My son's teacher was a portrait of discouragement. She was constantly telling me of all the ways he didn't fit the mold and went into a lengthy tirade to my husband IN FRONT OF MY SON about all the many ways he was failing as a student. 2.) The principal doesn't seem to like children. This is a problem if you are a principal of an elementary school. 3.) Common Core is ruining how kids learn math, and when my son's teacher explained how they now teach math, and even I couldn't understand, I'm not sure what hope there is for my son. We switched over to a charter school that does not teach the Common Core curriculum. 4.) My once-energetic, constantly-happy kindergartner completely lost his sparkle the minute he started at Hunters Glen. The minute we pulled them out, he was back to his happy self. 5.) My kids would cry every morning, beg me not to go to school, and even feign illness to get out of going to school. Now, my kids love school, this is not like them. Again, since we switched them to a charter school, they are happy, excited about learning, and never ever ask me to miss school.
Hunters Glen has been a great school for many years...the last year however have been a struggle. The new principle is nice, but he doesn't seem to connect with anyone, teachers, students or parents. I believe he was brought into the school to increase outcomes and create a cohesive school, which I don't think has happened. While I think both my kids recieved an adequate education and they are prepared for Middle School, I believe the school has gone down hill. Our last teacher was not good and unfortunately created a situation where our whole family couldn't wait to be done with 5th grade. It is really to bad.
Awesome school! Great teachers and staff. We have been in this school for 3 years now and my boys love it. The teaching standards are superb. Both of my boys struggle with reading and writing and they have received excellent assistence from teachers. Highly recommended. Great principal who truly tries to make a difference.
my son loves this school and they have great staff!! we are blessed to attend this one!!
My son is a transfer from out of state. He found the classword difficult and well above that of the Ohio school we transfered from. With help from his teacher and hard work at home he's now on track again. Great school with great staff.
Hunters's Glen Elementary has many opportunities for parent involvement and a very strong PTO. Both the BASE program and the after school activities are excellent. All the teachers my son had were very good. The only down side for us was the very large size of the school. My child felt a a little lost and just managing that many kids is difficult. The lunch room is not large enough to feed so many kids during the lunch hours available.
I loved this school!.. My childhood was given chances and gave me that push to my future. This school has always been my second home and i miss it.
My child is a kindergartner at Hunters Glen. We have had great experiences and interactions with the staff. Good opportunities for parent involvement. Communication with after school program has been a little difficult, but that is my only complaint. The school stresses academic achievement and makes the families feel welcome.
Hunter's Glen Elementary has great focus on academics. Their CSAP scores are some of the best in the district. They also offer before and after school activities such as science club, hockey, wall climbing, knitting, and Typing. They also have a great music program outside of class. Parent's are very involved in this school and they have a great PTO that fundraises well for the school. This is a closed school however, you have to live within the boundaries to go there(currently-it could change.)
Hunter's Glen is a decent school...but much is dependent upon which instructors your child ends up with and your child's learning style. Many classes are still quite large and span the learning abilities from those who are challenged by the basics to those who excel and are easily bored. As with any school, the parents must take a very active role in their child's education if Hunter's Glen is to work for them. A highly recommended aspect of Hunter's Glen is their newly hired music teacher who will likely bring many opportunities and musical challenges to the students. Their physical education teacher is also willing to take time from his schedule to offer several 'mini-camps' for various activities. These opportunities are definitely high points.
This is a great school with very committed teachers. The school focuses on working as a community with the parents' involvement and teachers are very concerned about their students.
Great school with a very involved parent body. Teachers are extremely committed to their kids.
Love this school. Excellent place fro your children. The summer fun program is very fun for the kids. The staff for the program is very friendly. Lisa Hart is a great person to trust with the kids. I think the school is a very clean and welcoming place. I also love the after and before school programs so I dont have to worry when I am going to have to work early or late.
Excellent school considering how large the student body is. Great teachers and staff. Wonderful programs for the children to participate in, especially the Accelerated Reader program. A safe environment for your children to be in. Has a top notch PTO.
