She's is a great school with deep community involvement, the teachers are attentive to the child's needs and pays close attention to individual needs.

I attended SHES from first grade all the way to sixth and I loved every second of it. The teachers are amazing and very dedicated. The school also has an excellent gifted education class for acedemically advanced students. Teachers of special classes Francis Baxter (music) and Micky Simpson (physical education) also etablish a strong bond with students. Anyone lucky enough to attend this school will agree with me.

SHES's new principal is wonderful. She is kind, caring, and dedicated to the students, teachers and staff, and to the parents of her school. The teachers and staff are amazing and are differentiating their teaching to the needs of their students.

I absolutely love my children's school. When we moved to Topeka I purposely chose my house in this schools boundaries because of all the wonderful things I heard about the school. I have never regretted that decision! Mrs. Hunley, our principal is amazing. She is dedicated to our children 150 %! The teachers are wonderful and the staff is the best! It's not just a school, it's a family.

I have never know a school to be on a personal level more than SHES. The principal, Layne Hunley, knows the names of every student that walks through the door. The teachers and staff are so caring.

My daughter was new to SHES due to boundary re-alignments. We were met with open arms. My daughter immediately felt welcomed. I love this school, teachers & the principal. Mrs. Hundley has an open door policy with the students. They love to go see her with their good grades, etc. I feel truly blessed to be at SHES. And I will have a 5 yr old entering in the 2009-2010 academic year. I am very much looking forward to it. I have heard great things about Mrs. McKinley.

I can not say enough good about this school. Every parent i have talked to from every grade level has raved about the principal, teachers, kids, and academics. I have loved working with my son's kindergarten teacher. She is amazing! All the teachers are friendly and caring toward the kids. there is lots going on and lots of support. the principal is also fabulous. she is understanding and caring, calls you back promptly, and is outside with the kids everyday for recess playing with them and being involved, hot or cold. I just love this school.
