My child Jordan Montgomery has grown from an okay reader to an excellent reader. I'm proud of the progress my child has shown. Thanks to Mrs. Stogsdill (1st grade) and Mrs. LaRocca (2nd grade).

We have attended Hood for four years and have loved it since day one! The teachers are really great with the kids. Especially the specials teachers ( music p.e. etc.)! I believe Hood does a great job with activities for parents and kids! Thier spring fling is a hoot and so are the school dances. I hope to find a school as great as this one where we are moving to. Two thumbs up for Hood Avenue Honey bees!

Hood Avenue is a wonderful school. My twin daughters have had excellent teachers while attending this school. I love the set up of this school, K-2nd grade. My son will start Kindergarten next year, and he's very excited!

Both of our children have attended Hood and for the most part we have been pleased with the school. Our oldest has been very successful academically, but I would recomend a lot of parental involvement to stay on top of your child's education. Our daughter is special needs and is in the special eduaction Pre-K program. The staff for the special education children are outstanding!
