Hajjar Elementary School5

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.
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!
