I have 2 daughters who have had an extraordinary experience at this school. The teachers have been excellent and really pushed them to achieve their full potential.
I love this school. The principal and assistant principal are helpful and always available. Sure, there is no air conditioning, and the building is a bit old, but it has great bones and an army of dedicated teachers and parents. Some parents view Hindley as a private school even though it is public. Yes, it is that good. Consider, for example, that my 9 year old daughter took a SUMMER school class in study skills by her own choice. Why? Because it was taught by a Hindley teacher!
I have a daughter who is entering her fifth year at Hindley and a son who is entering his third year at Hindley (who has special needs). The principal, Rita Ferri, is amazing, especially in leading the charge to accommodate my son and provide him with the extra support he needs. The staff is enthusiastic, caring and comprised of excellent educators. The music program (2x/week plus an orchestra, band, chorus) is phenomenal - my daughter loves playing the violin- and the reading program is superior as well. When my daughter needed more challenging work, the teachers provided her with it. There's no need for private school when you have a great school like Hindley!
This is an excellent school with a warm, nurturing environment. There is a good mix of seasoned and younger teachers providing a nice mix of traditional and innovative approaches. The art, music, library and gym teachers are child favorites. The orchestra (3rd grade and up) and band (4th grade and up) are very popular. Class size ranges from 17 (in the younger grades) to 25 (in the older grades.) There is a high level of parent involvement which adds to the quality of student life. If you come to the school, help out with the parent association. Your involvement will enrich your child's experience!
