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.

It's overall a pretty average school, but it has many flaws. -The cafeteria food. There are things that have been there repeatedly day after day. -The buses! The administrators tell students that they should have their Student ID ready, and the bus driver will check it... but the bus drivers rarely checks! The only bus driver that ever checks is the bus driver for bus 7 ( absent on 10/23/14). - The quality! Last year there was a mold infestation because of the pipes in a science room that broke. Students were absent for about 3 weeks. And, the structure of the school itself is quite old. - The teachers. Some of the teachers overload children with homework, and the kids get very stressed because of the the enormous amount of homework. There are students up until 12:00 doing their homework! : / -The organization. Students don't really get to voice their opinion - The schedules. Lots of kids have broken up with their friends because they don't have any classes with them. Kids can only hang out with their real friends at lunch. That is completely unfair.

This school has great teachers that do a great job of teaching the students. the advanced learning program was great, but they recently passed an act that i believe made it worse. there is not much leadership of the principal, but overall it is a very excellent school with great programs.

Despite the lack of leadership on the part of the principal, the school is one of the finest in the area. The teachers are very dedicated, child - centered, and hard working while the students are motivated and the parents are supported of their child's education. The only drawback is the lack of administrative leadership within the school. The principal has never been a classroom teacher and it is very obvious to those directly involved with the principal. Also, the principal is very lazy. Without the assistant principal, the school would be a disaster. She does all of the work.

A New Principal in 2007-8, and he is a fine edition to the excellent staff. Teachers work hard and smart, in a less than perfect building. Kids strive to be the best, and most have adequate resources to do it in. An overall great place to send your child.

I've had four children attend HMS and have been very pleased with their experience. The teachers care about the kids and helped them get ready for high school.
