Worst school ever!!! The students are rude, to everybody including the parents. The teachers are lazy, they let their students do what ever they want. There is no good supervision. I am a parent and I have experienced a lot of bullying, horrible language in that school. Also the bus drivers who are in charge of picking up the children with disabilities are always smoking outside the school and outside the bus. Like I said before worst school ever, I am definitely not leaving my child there. I wish that someone could go and supervise the school.
My school is Hearst. As an active member of the community I was curious about the new Principal ( Mrs. Chrobak) at Hearst Elementary. After years of neglect there appears to be a change happening. Mrs. Chrobak has visited homes in the community to introduce herself. She has already made an impression on the students who have attended summer programs and summer school they have told me how nice she was to them and the older kids appreciate the way she talks to them with respect. I can't wait to meet her she sounds young, energetic and no nonsense. I. Believe exciting times are ahead for Hearst. Keep your eyes and ears open.
My son is in a special class because he has a speech delay. and so the teacher NEVER let's me know how he's doing in class . Also one of the teaches aid is very rude . How am i supposed to know what he is doing in class or what i need to work with him at home?
I have transfer my son into Hearst a few months ago, like everything in life there will be problems with everyone talking about them and no one coming up with workable solutions. Being an very active person within many communities I ran to become a member of Hearst Elementary School's Local School Council. What I will subject is attend one of our Local School Council Meeting and voice your problems and look each one of us in the eye and ask for solutions.
My child has been being bullied at this school over a year, Jeffrey Porter (the principal) will not do anything about it but give me the run around & point blame at others instead of taking action or even attempting to stop this.he won't even return my calls
DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT allow your children to go here... YOULL be VERY VERY sorry!!!! Its a very violent school and filled with degeneration!
I am the guilty one for writting the review in 2005 and gave the school 3 stars. It was good back then, now you can forget about it. The administration starting with the principal need some discipline. The school is out of control. I will do what i have to, to pay and take my children somewhere else than keep them there. This school needs major help.
I am going to rate the school better than a teacher thatis bad to say, I hope my child is not in his or her room because they would learn anything. I will say that discipline is a problem and some parents should discipline the children and become supportive in the school and be part of the solution if not they are part of the problem.
Hearst is one of the worst schools I have been to. The children there have no respect for their peers, teachers, or their education. Hearst lacks in discipline. This school is in great need of reform.
