Teachers are mean and incompetent alot of turnover here ... very rude staff Esp the new VP she needs an attitude adjustment . The curriculum is taught in a very robot type way . Send your kids to the private school around the corner if you can .
My child has been going to this school for three years and has had bad teachers for two of the three years. Those two particular teachers were angry, unmotivated, seemed like they hate(d) their jobs, did the bare minimum to meet paperwork requirements, and do/did not care about the students. Yes, the facility is new and pretty and the student body is made up of children from upper income families, so it is generally safe.
In regards to the 11/5 post saying teacher should park at the high school, that's just not an option. Parking is serverly limited at the high school as is. They have more teachers, as well as more students who rely on their cars as their only way to get to school.
My son just finished his first grade year here. We came from a private school for Pre-K and K, and had high expectations. HFE exceeding these expectations! Smaller class size, attentive teachers and wonderful art, and music program. Parents are very involved and it feels very much like an independent school. We are looking forward to another great year.
Excellent teaching staff and therapists. I have a speical needs child and the services (educational and speech) have been top notch. My child loves school and is excelling despite his delays. Thank you HF.
My son switched to Heards Ferry in third grade last year and the experience has been great. The families are involved and his friends are good students and enjoy learning. He looks forward to reading every right and is exceeding standards in all areas.The culture supports him being a good student and me an involved parent. Only complaint is the $125.00 PTA fee. That is excessive and I didn't even get a car sticker to show my school support!
