The leadership of the principal and some of the teachers are exemplary. The principal has been here for over 20 years, and I can tell he loves his job and loves to see kids learn and grow. He knows the name of all the kids, over 400 names! We have two boys in HMN this year. We are new to the area and the school district, but the teachers made the transition so much easier for our boys. They have an excellent music program. Both the orchestra and band directors are among the best in the state in my estimation. Teachers are very kind and responsive to our communication. They welcome parental involvement. In fact, they act as if they are hungry for it. We are thrilled that our boys are in this great school. Will update info later as we learn more details and are in a better position to evaluate everything. But so far, great!
This school is pretty nice. The teachers are kind and understanding but also make you focus and work, which is a good and essential thing. The related arts rotation is amazing, and the physical education is very good. The principal is nice, but hardcore. He also really wants the students to be successful. It is a very nice and safe school!
First of all she cares about the students, you are wrong. The IDs can be annoying but you'd feel differently if you're kid was killed in a shooting. The word of the day quizes are not only expanding our vocabulary but they count towards a grade, they aren't hard so they help you boost your grade. The teachers here really care, the students want to do well, the staff is there for you. Its one of the safest schools in Lake County. Its a good school because our principal cares about the students and their safety and their learning. Just today she said we cant have ipods in class because its disrupting our learning. I know she wants higher test scores like every principal, but I feel like she also cares about the students. She sometimes makes me mad, but she is a good principal because she cares.
