Hess is an amazing school! They are a great TEAM of educators, working together to teach, and enrich each students life. I know our test scores don't show it, but you can blame that on lack of parent involvement. I have 2 children enrolled, and have been apart of the school for 4 years now. No complaints about the Teachers, principal, or staff!!!!

I'm not even sure if the first person was fully aware but I think you probably had a bad personal experience. But this school is wonderful the while staff work with each child and parent above and beyond. The principle and vice principal are at every event at the school even after school hours. The teachers have so much compassion for their jobs that I have seen many of them just leaving school after 6 or 7 at night. At other schools I've seen just about every staff member leave as soon as most students were gone after the bell. I by far have not one bad thing to say about this school. I'm proud to be a parent of two Hess Hawks!!!! I would randomly ask any one of these parents that if their child goes to Hess and they would even tell you nothing but great things.

I have 3 kids that attends this school, and i dont like it at all i am looking for another school ASAP. They dont have the tools to help your child if he/she are falling behind, my kids will come home at least 2 times a week and tell me they found hair in their lunch and most of the teachers dont care nothing about if the kids are learning or not...I cant take no more i have 2 find my kids a better school.
