I took my kids out of that place when I heard that John weed was there. Some one higher up in the system needs to look in to this guy. What way to make a school go down hill

I attended Hernando in early 80's and totally understand where you are coming from . Some of the things that I saw seemed like it was from backwoods movie. The Principal at that time use to walk around with a paddle board if anyone misbehaved. Sorry, If I have offended anyone ,but just speaking on my experience.

I love this school! The teachers and staff have always been supportive and caring for their students. All the teachers my three children have had over the past six years have done everything they can to challenge and encourage their learning experiences. I have always been informed of what 's going on in the classroom and if I ever have a question, all I need to do is call or email them and I get a quick response back.

My two boys just started school this year. What should be a wonderful experience has me worried for their success. I have e-mailed the teacher with no response, and written notes again with no response. My son is supposed to have a daily take home folder, and twice now he has come home with out the folder or without the daily papers. I want and need more communication, or i will be headed into the office to speak to the superintendent.

Excellent school with children wanting to learn. Great leadership ! These Citrus County schools actually encourage children to do their best and become achievers.

They have very little parent outreach and No communication! They are very back woods. I plan on this being my childs last year.

Small school with very good teachers and staff. I have had two children attend. I like the school so much that after I moved I had my child approved to attend out of zone. Great Scouting program too.

All three of my boys have gone to Hernando Elementary and I cant say enough good things about the school. From the wonderful staff, super caring Guidance Counselors (especially Mrs. Bailey) and the eexcellent teachers, I highly respect them all. I now have one son in high school, one in middle school and my baby boy is in still in elementary in 1st. These people have been a big part of my life for a very long time and I love them all! I will always believe that the teachers and support staff should trade their salaries with the PRO ATHLETIC guys! Our teachers should be making the millions instead of them, as they hold the most precious of possessions in their hands daily and should be much more appreciated. Renee Benjamin

My son is in ms. Hunters kindergarden class at hernando, he just loves it! I can not say enough good things about all of the staff there at hernando. They take the time with the students and seem to enjoy what they do. In my opinion, hernando is a wonderful school. Also my son goes to the before and after school care run by w.T.I, they are all great in there! Thanks for all you do!

My child is in pre k this is his second year in the prek program. My son's teacher,Miss Price and I have a open line of communication. I couldnt ask for a better teacher. My son started out at the school with little or no verbal communication and is now a non stop talker. I have nothing but praise for Hernando Elementary. They also have a great literacy program and it seems very important to them.

Horrid school. Low education - unwillingness to change. This is true of most of the school district but Hernando is one of the lesser schools in a very uneducated county. If you live in this school district - you are better off 'non-schooling' your children. This is especially true if your children are bright or above average. The 'advanced' educational program (which your child can only get into when they pass an IQ test with a 125 or above) gives your child the right to do 'artwork' half a day a week. Sad. If your child is average - and you only dream for them to work at Winn-Dixie... then this is a great place to start their lives. The principal is one of the worst I have ever encountered, and the teachers are rigid and poorly trained robots who teach to the FCAT only. Do anything to not send your children here.
