I absolutely am soooo impressed with this school...I had two daughters go their and my son is currently enrolled in the 4th grade.And I have been nothing but very happy with this school.The staff is so pleasant and easty to talk to about my childs progress/And I absolutely love the principal,he is so courtious and caring.My son broke his arm in the gym last year and when I came to pick him up to take to the hospital,I could really see the concern on Mr.Pecks face,and the other staff were so concerned and very prompt on what to do.I couldnt ask for a better school for my son to be at.HEARD MIXON IS THE BEST!!!!!

I appreciate the uniforms myself ; and my Husband. We experienced how positive the out come is years ago with our older children. I don't think parents know how much focus is put on outer appearances with our young ones.I don't want that to be the topic of the week for my child at school. I also want to say Great Job Mrs. Lackey 3 rd grade.

My daughter started at Heard-Mixon in kindergarten half way through the year. I thought it was going to be a very difficult time for her but it wasn't! I wasn't happy with the uniform policy at first and I'm still questionable about it, but it actually helped her. When she was at her other school the girls talked about what everyone 'had' to wear to be 'in'. So of course she came home a lot asking for some kind of special clothing. Since she was at Heard-Mixon we haven't had that problem once! Sometimes it is a pain to find the 'right' things for the uniform, but luckily they aren't horribly stricked. Another thing I haven't liked is I always feel like I'm forking out money everyday for her to participate in anything going on at the school. I'm a single mom, but her education comes first.

I have two children at this school and am very pleased. I am most impressed with the principle in how he handles things. He has always been quick to sit down and listen to any concerns that I have ever had. I am vey happy my kids go to Heard Mixon.

I have three children and all have attended Heard-Mixon Elementry. My Step daughter who is now 18, had a studying problem and all her teachers helped her. (she came from Arkansas which teaching is very slow there). My oldest son came to HMES from Stone Mountain Schools and had a reading problem in the second Grade. He is a Honor Roll Student in Eastside now (it is from the excellent teaching from HMES. My youngest son is in HMES fourth grade and the teachers are GREAT with him. He is extremely smart and is also on HONOR ROLL. Heard Mixon is not for the money it is for the KIDS and their education. BUT I dont agree with the uniform policy.

we have lived in this school distrcit for almost a year now.the teachers for the most part seem to be dedicated and helpful;however, I have to question the policies. it does seem that they are there for the schools benefit. Parents beware if you have any issues arise that is not in the schools best interest. Thier polices seems to be this is the way we do things here,like it or leave it. I would like to move to another school but why should I. I think more people should speak up when they need to.

I would like to say that my children transferred to heard mixon this school term. I couldnt be happier! i had major issues at the previous school and have had nothing but good come from their teachers and their grades. This school has made such a significant diffrence that I actually have not had to meet the principal. That says alot. I knew their previous principal by first name. Furthermore i would like to say that its great to have your children in a smaller school, we feel like family.

There are a few good teachers in the school. They are there to make sure the students learn and thrive. However, they are far and few between. The school policies are there to benefit the teachers and staff and not the students. I do not feel as if my child's needs are being met or considered and would never recommend this school to anyone. We are seriously considering selling our house that we love to get our child out of this school zone.
