My son went to Hannum for Kintergarden, and honestly, the school rating does not reflect how amazing this school is. They have Kindergartners reading and writing paragraphs and solving simple algebra problems by the end of the year. Teachers, staff, and the principal are all WONDERFUL to work with. Also, I have lived in the area for many years. It's a safe, family centered, nurturing environment.

The teahers are very intelligent as is the Principal. The Principal is always smiling and ready to go every day. The office staff is fabulous. I can't say enough about what the kids are learning. They are challenged and their days are filled with lots of learning in fun and interesting ways. The only issue is that parents need to get more involved in their child's daily learning and care. It is easy to see the kids that yearn for their parent's attention.

The school is very student-parent oriented. The faculties, nurse, and principal are so nice. The place has childcare for early drop off with KLC and very affordable. Highly recommended.

This school is awesome. We have been here 6 years now and am very happy with the attention and education that my children are receiving. The teachers are great and friendly and the parents and PTA are very involved. The principal does a fantastic job making the parents fell involved and the kids feel special. My youngest will start Kindergarten next year and there was never a doubt that we would stay in the area and continue with our years at Hannum.

I feel that this school is very good. My son has attended kindergarten and 1st grade here. They have put him in reading programs that have excelled his reading dramatically. I have nothing but confidence in my sons education thanks to the teachers and staff at Hannum.
