Hawthorne has a great new principal who is doing fabulous things for the school. Generally speaking, the staff is warm, organized and offers an excellent learning environment. Hawthorne is a dual immersion school and parents have the option of placing their children beginning in Kindergarten in classes taught in Spanish. We have 2nd and 3rd graders who are fluent in Spanish. The thing that I love most about Hawthorne, however, is its diversity. Besides the many caucasion students, we have African Americans, we have children who are from Spain, Mexico and Somalia; we have main-streamed children who are in wheelchairs and who are blind. The students get to see first-hand that, though others may look or sound differently than they do, the similarities are greater than the differences. From the experiences they acquire at Hawthorne, I believe our students will be equipped to offer great things to society.
My child has been at Hawthorne since First grade Now she's in fith grade. I love this school it offers so much: Drawing programs,Basketball& cheerleading,ESS[extended school services],My child gets any indivisual attention she needs. But one of my favorite things is that there is a high level of parent involvement take this from someone like me :I would'nt have it any other way. And after every grading period there is a special award ceremony to recognize our little ones! This is a Spanish-immergine school. Check it out I Know if Your an ALL-STAR parent...You will.
