The old complaints regarding the principal, no longer apply. Middle of last year Hitch received the most amazing principal~! He truly cares. Listens to parents and makes time for any concern. He takes very seriously the ultimate goal of the children receiving a good education. I had nothing but horrible experiences with the other principal. Horrible. The other reviews stating high quality of education, had to be mostly from parents educated here. Perhaps never in the system before, with nothing to compare Hitch too. Pay attention to what they are not learning~!!!!
Horrible leadership....the principal did nothing when I complained multiple times about teacher neglect and staff issues...My children and I moved out of the neighborhood so I didn't have to send them,,,Trust me folks....there is a reason Hitch has a bad reputation in this neighborhood.
We are new to Hitch, my son just started Kindergarten and we are very pleased. My son loves his new school. I do feel that that a 5 is way to low. I did my research before we started here and I am happy with my decision.
5 are you kidding! My son has attended for 7 years. He is an honor roll student and it is all due to the staff and principal! There are over 14 afterschool activities, tutors available in the morning, open door policy with the principal(Ms. Reese) and a beautiful area for the kids to play. The nearby Catholic school has recess in the street. They don't even have a playground. We have a running track , field and playground area. The curriculum is always changing to enhance the students abilities and I feel very lucky to have my child be a Hitch Husky!
My children have been attending Hitch for most of their school' years. The Hitch family cares for their students. I am impressed with the principle, Ms Reese takes great measures for the continued success of the school. If your child has a chance to attend Hitch that is truly a blessing.
This school is amazing! My children are also testing above average in all subjects. There is a growing sense of community and much of the PTA work feels grass roots because the school had done such a turn around. I am happy with the diversity of children speaking other languages even if it brings down the overall test scores for the school. It is better to be unkown and not overpopulated like some of our neighboring schools.
I have two boys attending this school. I transferred them at the beginning of the school year. At first I was hesitate given that my sons were at a performing art school. But to my surprise the school is great. The teachers are caring, and the principal is excellent. I encounter a situation and the principal follow through to the very end and still made a follow up call to make sure I was ok. The curriculum is wonderful, and very detailed. I can't say enough about the school.
