Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My child attended Hickory Groove the last two years, since the school opened. The school facilities are great; the administrative personnel is kind and helpful. The Art and Music programs are awesome, kids can participate in Orchestra starting at 4th grade and Band in 5th grade. The teachers are fine, but not great. There is not so much parent-teacher communication unless there is a problem with your child. Class size >25. Kids usually do homework at school; however, I consider that the HOMEwork should be a parent's opportunity to know what our kid is learning at school. My son didn't improve his writing skills, I also feel that he used to write better before moving to this school district (I confirmed this after I got the benchmark assessment results). I think the school curriculum could improve in writing, practicing once a week is not enough; this has to be a daily activity similar to "reading." At the school that my child previously attended, the first 10-15 minutes of the day were dedicated to writing. At Hickory Grove, there are many volunteer parents; I couldn t get involved as much as I wanted because there were too many volunteers that we had to take turns.

I'm very satisfied with my child performance and social interaction, staff are great and cooperative, I encourage all the parent to write their true experience with this school, staff, and expectations from the school.

This is our first year in the district. We are overly impressed. Awesome school. Awesome principal and office staff. While I cannot rate all of the teachers, our experience with our specific teacher has been more than we had hoped for.

Not only is the facility state of the art, but the staff and leadership are excellent. There is a very strong parental presence as well.
