All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

We have been thrilled with our experience at Hubbell. The academic programs are excellent, especially the IB program. The leadership--both principal and teachers--is outstanding. We have been pleased with our teachers and how much our child has grown. Hubbell does a great job with gifted children and we have been especially pleased with the innovative methods teaching reading comprehension. The parent community is very active and it has been easy to develop friendships by participating in the many class room and school functions. The school cultivates a joy of learning, and as parents who are educators, there is nothing more important.

Hubbel Elementary provides a wonderful and devoted staff in a charming "old world" setting within the hub of the vibrant and culturally diverse Des Moines, Iowa. It's been my experience that the parents are also deeply involved and supportive in school activities. For these and many other reasons, we've chosen Hubbell for our son's early education. He's third generation Hubbell, following in the footsteps of his grandmother & grandfather as well as his great uncle and great aunt. In my opinion, Hubbell is certainly one if not the best of the Des Moines "Westside" public schools.

Hubbell is the first International Baccelaureate Elementary School in the State of Iowa. The teachers care to improve the skills and efforts of their students. Tim Schott is the greatest Principal who is engaged with his students, motivating for his staff, and a wonderful family man.
