HES has been a great school as far as learning goes; A little behind Pierce county from personal experience; lacking in communication with parents in regard to certain situations that you might consider an emergency; and the fact that YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO WALK INS AT ALL. Which means no checking on your child at ALL without an appointment. And if you are not from this area you will be shocked to know they still PADDLE children in public schools here!! Other than that its ok.
I have a 1st(Boy) and 2nd(Girl) grader at HES.They LOVE their school and very happy school is in.As far as Learning my son has a little harder time then my daughter. But, I feel the teacher's are doing a great job with him.The Teacher's take the extra time he need's to learn his work. Like a lot of parent's I work alot of hour's but, I am always at any function after 6:00pm. I feel the enviroment at HES is a very Loveing one. And I have always seen teacher's want their children to succeed in all they do.....Cindy Jacobs
My children have been going to hes for 2 years. I am very pleased with the teacher's. They are very loving and want to see all their children susceed. I feel all the staff there care for the children..
H.E.S. offers awesome opportunities for students and parents to learn and grow together with teachers and administrators. My child recieved an excellent education at Hoboken Elementary School. The staff and faculty are dedicated to excellence in education and it shows! I appreciate the dedication and enthusiam that teachers show to our children. Parents are encouraged to be involved through activities, meetings, and conferences. Students are given many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. Hoboken has ranked very high in the state academically for many years.Administrators and teachers have high expectations for good behavior and academic growth and students live up to it! Keep up the great work! I appreciate everyone at H.E.S.! An A+ school!
I love the parent/teacher folder that my child's teacher sends home everyday for notes. It helps me be informed. Not every parent can go to the meetings at school because some of us have to work alot of hours. The only bad thing about the school that I forsee is when something happens to my child, like a fall or a nosebleed or anything like that, I feelI should be notified and that has yet to happen with Hoboken. Maybe if they could do better with that then they would rate very high in my opinion!
HES is a great school. Parents have a responsibility to help their children to do well on the standardized tests. Teachers can't do it all! I feel all the teachers are doing a great job. Keep up the great work HES!!!
