We have had nothing but the BEST experience and BEST teachers. My son can be a handful at times, but his teachers are patient and correct him when needed. He's doing VERY well at Hebron. I am also happy that they have decided to roll out "e-learning days" come January 2017, when school is cancelled due to bad weather. Less, or the end of, snow makeup days!
The teachers, especially the kg teachers, need to stop complaining the almost 30 kids per classroom are being naughty and have trouble following rules. The kids have a 15 min lunch at 10:30, one recess for 15mins at 11 a.m. if they are lucky, outside, and they stay all day. Why have the teachers not taken advantage of the parents that were requested to volunteer at the beginning of the school? Love the school but something drastic needs to be done about the size of the kindergarten 2012-2013 school years. To be fair, parents need to also not make excuses for bad behavior and back the teachers up. Everyone can improve the situation. Academically, the school is amazing! Unfortunately, if the referendum doesn t get approved, the school will be in big trouble.
The school is comparable to private schools in many aspects but need more teachers! They need to stop allowing children from other districts in, there are too many children in a classroom as it is. Overall a good school, college bound kids. A childs success in any school depends on parents involvment.
I removed my son from this school after one month. I could not stand his teacher, and especially the teachers assistant. She was very rude. If you do not enjoy teaching, then you need to find a different profession. The after school teacher was very unwelcoming as well. They are all very stern and seems to be cold hearted for kindergarten aged students. They are absurd. We moved to a different school and are much happier. We had many other issues, but we are just glad our son is in a better learning environment now.
I agree with the comment that the school needs more teachers. I am so upset that certain teachers would rather give a good child detention for not understanding something than to help them understand. The school also don't return calls.
I absolutely love Hebron Elementary! It is a wonderful place to send your child. My daughter is a straight A student and advanced to GT classes. They have the work for the children that want to excell and they do their best to keep you involved. I love that they make school fun for them. It keeps them interested and makes them feel like a part of the school. They always welcome parents to be as involved as possible. I love it here!
