The academic program is solid for students that generally excel, and our child is doing very well academically in her honors classes. Our experience with the student body has not been as positive. Our family has been introduced to materialism and elitism that we have not seen anywhere else that we have lived during our military career. We are selling our new home and moving to a different school district where people are valued more for who they are than what labels they wear, cars they drive or where they vacationed last. The teachers are on par with teachers that we have encountered at other schools around the nation. The principal is very proud of the school and its achievement levels. The impression she gave me is that she feels that children coming from other districts won't succeed at advanced levels since HSE schools and students are far superior to others. We had to fight to keep our daughter in honors level classes when we moved here. She has maintained grades consistent with what she earned at other schools with no extra effort.
As a former student, I attended HSJH for 7th and 8th grade. It really prepares you for high school. I loved all of my teachers, and Now I'm a freshman at HSE High, and I still keep in contact with some of my favorite teachers, and stop by and visit time to time. Overall it's a really great school!
