I am not a parent either but am also a former student until i moved to the Noblesville-Carmel areas because of the lack of learning in all of the Hartford City schools. I do have to say that I did love the principals and all the teachers because they are very nice and helped me. But, I have noticed now looking back on my time in the Hartford City public school system that the ones that needed a little push were not getting it. Pupils with low scores and grades, ones who were getting into drugs and alcohol were merely labeled as one of those who would never amount to anything. The teachers do teach well enough so you understand the lessons but they water down all of it so the pupils are merely learning the top layer of the cake.

I'm not necessarily a parent, I'm actually a former student, until I moved to Louisiana.This is a excellent public school with great extra curricular activities.Especially the choir program and instructor. In fact, I plan on trying to start a choir at my new school because of the great expiriences I had at my old one. I truly loved going to school everyday.
