My children have been here for 3 years and we have been more than happy with their education. The teachers really care for their students and want them to succeed. That is what makes a difference for them. I would definitely recommend this school to others.

Not a good school. Over crowded, large class size, low expectations of students. We went here, and then pulled our kids. Parents had no clue and didn't care how poorly their kids were performing. Don't care about high achieving kids either. It's been overcrowded and poor reputation since it opened. Very disappointing.

My kids are in their second year at this school and thus far the teachers have been amazing. The downsides? Overcrowding in class rooms with 30 plus kids.

The other 2 star reviewer nailed it on the head. Teachers are hit and miss and there isn't enough communication between the educators and parents. Put quite simply, I am sorry to say I am disappointed and it wasn't what I was expecting for my child. Really wished I would have looked into charter schools more carefully. PTA does a lot of good things, but that is simply not enough.

I think Hunter is a very good school. i have been impressed by the teachers and their willingness to go the second mile. I am pleased with the administration and very pleased with the extracurricular specialist ie: Music, Lunch workers and PE

I have been nothing but pleased with the education my children are receiving at Hunter Elementary. I can't believe the disdain in some people-those poor children who aren't being pushed enough in school are probably being overly pushed at home. My children are excellent students and if they are struggling in a subject, we work on it a little more at home. The way it's supposed to be. But that's just me, a gap-toothed hick product of the Idaho educational system.

Minimum standards met, not much else. Hunter is not a poor school but its about mediocre. Teachers are hit and miss and the general faculty and leadership seem to lack the desire to push students to succeed at higher than the minimum standards, which in Idaho are not very high. Overall we are disappointed with 2nd and 3rd grade at Hunter. One thing is for sure, Great Schools has it right when they rate schools, 9s and 10s are excellent (i.e. Seven Oaks Elem.), 6s are just average like Hunter.

Overall very good...but P.E. on two days a week is awful. No child left behind (Bush Admin.) is responsible for this. We have two kids here, one in first grade and one in third.
