My son has been going to this school since Kindergarten and is now in his last year. I have been more than pleased with his time at HB. Academically, I am impressed with all the different learning avenues and styles of teaching. For example, game night or reading night for the family; the book club and stars programs. Just to name a few. There is great communication between the parents and staff. Most importantly, the teachers that I have encountered genuinely care about the children and pushing them to their greatest potential. I am actually sad that this is his last year at HB.

I think this is a good school considering all the challenges teachers,parents,and administrators face in public education today. However you need to be involved in your child's education to see the maximum benefit. For the most part my son loves going to school. The school is clean and the office staff is very friendly and professional. I had a few incidents but for the most part is a good school.

I think this is a great school and getting better, teacher concerns for their stundents is great. the principal was very good, office staff is off the hook, the overall staff of this school interacts very well with all the stundents, i think the new principal follow directions of the previous one and make farther advancements in stundents advanvcements

I am very unhappy with this school. I have been in the school district for 7 years. I have 2 children. The things I went through with my older son is the same problems I am having with my youngest. I am finally moving because the school is not getting better. You have a lot of parent invlovement at the school, but the teachers are not helping the parents with the students. I have tried to get help several times and couldn't. I am moving to homewood because of the schools.

My child began his educational experience at HB since Kindergarten and now is in the third grade. The teachers are extremely remarkable and highly qualified. This year HB gained a new principal and from what I can gather will be a terrific leader for this school. It's my opinion that the past principal had a lot to do with parent involvement and community tension. Give the new principal a chance to work for our children. The only thing that I questioned about this district is the ISAT test scores of the two grammar schools. HB scores are extremely low compared to Longwood. Both schools are in the same district, so why is this? Many questions and no answer.

My child goes to this school. It was a great school until the administration changed. The administration should take a leadership role, not an adversarial role.

I have been happy with the quality of programs and teachers my children have encountered at Hickory Bend School. There are many opportunities for them to flourish their realms of thinking and opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts and sciences. Keep up the good work! The only think I found unsettling was the way I was initially treated by the office staff. They weren' too friendly to me. There could be more parent involvement, but each class had different levels of participation. The school is definitely adequate and has great teachers, but I would like to see more friendliness from the office staff and principal
