there is no art,no PE,15 minute recess 15 minute lunches.there is no time for creativity or just being children.my child was so stressed out and that isn't normal for a 7 year old.homework would take up to 3 hours and would end in tears.all hynes prepares you for is getting high scores and making themselves look good on paper.myself and several other parents removed our children from hynes in the middle of the school year,that says a whole lot and that's just her class alone.

Amount of homework: Disagree

Crazy amount for 2nd graders hours of homework to the point that there was no time for playing.that on top of only 15 minutes of recess

Hynes is an excellent school with a top-notch curriculum and wonderful extra-curricular activities. The faculty, staff, and families at Hynes are high-quality. Of all the public and private options we considered, we could not have made a better decision. Our children are thriving at Hynes. I can not praise the administration and faculty highly enough, particularly Ms. Michelle Douglas and Ms. Charmaine Williams!

I have a child in Kindergarten and another in 1st grade. We switched our kids from a local private school to Hynes. We were scared to death and spent many sleepless nights worrying about our decision. Let me tell you that we could not be happier. We feel certain that our kids are getting a better education than they were getting at the expensive, private school in our neighborhood. In fact, our daughter was BEHIND other kids in her Hynes class when she started the year! Of course the Hynes staff took notice and immediately got her the extra help she needed to catch up and now she is excelling. The teachers are wonderful, the staff is dedicated, communication with parents is phenomenal. The only improvement I see needed (and which I feel is getting better) is parental involvement. We have so many wonderful parents who give tirelessly of their time and talents but at the private school I would say nearly 100% of the parents would step up to the plate, so to speak, when asked and at Hynes, a few parents carry all the weight. But the staff? They give 110%! We are very pleased.

Great school, great team work. I cannot complain anything about the school. I am very proud that I am part of the team.

Hooray!!! The Hynes Husky Family has returned to its pre-Katrina site in a brand new, modern building at 990 Harrison Avenue!! The French Immersion program, Art, Band, Choir and all the sports teams now have plenty of room. The library and computer labs are amazing. Our children are thriving in an academically focused setting under the caring guidance of the talented staff and administration.

They take anyone, just normal kids and help them shine. No culling out the kids who will bring down their statistics. They love their kids.

The best new Orleans public school and the most dedicated teachers.

We visited many private schools in the area before visiting Hynes. I was so impressed with all Hynes had to offer, even in the less than perfect temporary building. The administration and teachers are dedicated and caring and there is a strong PTO. My child is in his second year at Hynes and we could not be happier with our decision.

From our first day at Hynes I felt as if we were part of a family. The principal, assistant principal, office staff, and teachers all know by children by name. There is a constant vein of caring and respect that exudes from the students, teachers, and staff. It is a wonderful, caring, loving, learning environment for my children.
