Excellent teachers and staff overall, my daughter loves it there! The principal on the other side, not so much. How is it possible that an elementary school principal doesn't ever communicate with the parents, and the 2 times she has (for major reasons!) she sent out letters with MAJOR grammar/spelling flaws! At least get someone to proof-read it.

I give five stars for the amazing and committed teachers that work with our children every day. I give less than one star for the current principal. She is completely incompetent and has terrible communication skills with the parents. This current principal also let go an outstanding teacher last year for no reason, a loss which was felt by the teachers, students and parents. I give the teachers a lot of credit for dealing with this principal every day. The best move the superintendent could make would be to replace this principal with someone who can do that job efficiently.

This school has a lot of terrific teachers and the secretary is a wonderful woman. This school however does need a stronger leader and one that is capable of making decisions that are best for our children and their safety as well as their education most importantly. This is the only area that needs improvement.

Our daughter attends this school for the second year already. She loves every day she goes there and we are still excited how teachers & the whole team helped her after relocation. They got a new principal this year - energetic woman - we can't imagine how it could get better, but she will definitely find a way how to improve things which are great already.

Great teachers, a principal that stayed for 37+ years and just retired, but stayed because he loved the kids, great kids, understanding, willing to work with parents, greatly support the kids.

I have two children at the Hajjar Elementary School. The Hajjar has great teachers who really care for the children. The principal, however, is not contributing to the improvement of the school.

The principal of this school is largely at fault for the problems with the academic and social atmosphere of this school. I am stating this as a current parent of a child at the Hajjar who tries to stay actively involved within the school community, and as a former elementary educator as well. It is time for him to retire after being there over 30 years, and time to bring in a principal who can create positive change!
