We recently moved into the district from a very different area, and from a top-quality school. I was somewhat concerned about the school when we arrived, but we have been very impressed with the quality of education here. Most of the teachers are wonderful, creative and progressive in their approach to teaching, the principal is friendly and approachable, but most impressive to us have been the outstanding extracurricular opportunities available. 5th and 6th grade band and orchestra, choirs on several levels, really an amazing quality music program that is better than many middle schools we have seen. PE here is also impressive--lots of interesting and fun changes, and especially the iDance program made my kids more excited than ever to get to school each day. Well done, Hansen Elementary!
My son is going to this school and is mildly autistic, they are doing a wonderful job with him and he has improved to the point of not being in the resourse room much this year.
While the facilities are not the best, the teachers, academic atmosphere, and culture of this school are OUTSTANDING!
