Hiawatha Elementary School is a great school. It is full of fantastic families who are supportive of their children's educational experience. The school has many community partners, resources, and programs to offer kids and families. It has a great learning climate with strong, collaborative teachers, and a fantastic, experienced, second generation principal at its helm. All of the school's focus is on every child learning every day.

Management is nonexistent, teachers perform most of the lessons for the child and most teachers are not trained.

We moved from california and put my daughter in Hiawatha elementary. this is an excellent school with caring teachers and principal. My daughter really loves this school and the emphasis is on overall development. My daughter also picked up English very well as she is being coached specially on this subject. We are very satisfied with this school. Srinivasan & Vidhya
