Phenomenal school with an amazing group of teachers, administrators and staff! This is a true community of caring faculty and a wonderfully diverse group of great kids. My daughter is in first grade, her third year at this school, and is excelling beyond our expectations. She has loved every one of her teachers and made lasting friendships. We couldn't be happier with the attentiveness and caring nature of every single adult who works at ESMS, from the custodial staff to the principal. We are also beyond thrilled that the school holds each child to such a high expectation of achievement, which has succeded in helping our child become a self-motivated academic and social achiever.
Wonderful school, wonderful faculty! The teachers truly care about the students and teach them in a variety of ways for different learners. This was my daughter's first year and she was in preschool. I couldn't believe the things they were doing; analyzing the growth of plants under different conditions, learning about aquatic life, and she even finished the year able to read quite a bit! I was very impressed and so glad we chose to send her here.
Mary Hooker school has a wonderful caring staff who are flexible, patient and give their all every day. They have been able to provide students with what they need to turn around low test scores and attitudes for two years in a row by believing in them and going that extra mile. Previous test scores may not indicate a school's total potential or quality when scores of different children are compared year to year. Growth scores show our school's potential and quality.
