I've been happy with the school so far. The teachers my child has had have been very kind, and involved. My daughter is learning, and comes home with a smile on her face every day. I am thrilled that PE is offered everyday, along with another special, such as art, music, or computers.

My kids love this school and we love the families that make up this community. More than anything, I want my kids to gain a life-long LOVE for learning - and they have it now. Before we moved our kids to Big Hollow - they were both starting to hate school. BH's appoach to learning has been fresh, creative and fun for my kids - who come home every night able to actually tell me what they learned that day! We are happy here....

I am very disappointed that the board has decided to up hold the schedule of the primary school students. A good number of the parents must work; which means that our children are awake and participating in their daily activities two three hours before class begins. As you can imagine; this schedule is exhausting for anyone much less the younger children who should be focusing on learning academic fundamentals. By the time my son arrived home he was too exhausted to participate in homework and the ever increasing mathematical and reading requirements imposed by the school. Homework is very important; however someone should take into consideration draining schedules imposed on these children. Last year was the first year that my son struggled; in fact I would say his grades plummeted. I believe this was a direct result of this new schedule. I am hoping someone can explain why the board is more concerned with the extra circulator activities of the middle school students rather than unlocking our children s greatest learning capabilities.

My daughter has formed great friendships at this school. She gets excited in seeing her teachers at music recitals and other events. She formed strong bonds with her teachers, such a great bond that she wants to be a teacher when she grows up. I can think of no better complement to pay a teacher than to say one day I want to be like you. Well done.

Big Hollow Schools are in my opinion some of the best in the area. Staff is highly involved in ensuring every individual students academic progress. Parent involvement is encouraged and highly appreciated.

This school is great in all areas. The only problem it is a old building currently. But around next year they will get a new building by the primary building.
