Hunnewell is a wonderful school, with a fabulous principal and amazing staff. There are some fabulous teachers here who are truly dedicated to the children. There is also an exceptional parent community at this school. They are very involved and eager to meet and welcome new families who move in. It is a very friendly and encouraging environment for learning. We are very happy at Hunnewell overall.

My child attended this school from K-3. Had a horrible time. Was treated poorly by teachers as well as other students. The special ed services in this school are horrendous. I took my child out and went to private school. I'd rather pay directly to get a school that I know truly cares for my child as a person and as a student.

Perhaps the other reviewers expectations were low but ours were actually pretty simple: treat our daughter with respect, treat us with respect and provide an environment in which she could learn to love learning. Instead, her kindergarten class was a good portrait of what happens when a teacher stays in one place for way too long. (in this case 18 years). Examples: It was clear from the start that the teacher played favorites and if a child wasn't her favorite whatever was going wrong in the classroom was the fault of the child. The attention to individuals was poor. The way the classroom was run was rigid with no flexibility for individuals. While the students were supposedly learning to read, after my daughter moved to another school we figured out that she actually never learned - she is good at mimicking and that's how she was getting by. Finally, the teacher, whom we were trusting to teach the basics of reading and writing to our child, was a poor speller. I started to feel sorry for her - however remembered she had access to spellcheck.. I have always been a strong advocate of public education. This experience made me seriously question why we fund what we fund.

Hunnewell is a very warm and caring school. Not only are the teachers excellent but the parents are all very supportive of each other and the children. New families are welcomed with open arms. Being close to town is fun for the kids as they can walk to get pizza or ice cream after school once they're old enough. I would definitely recommend this school.

Hunnewell is an excellent school with a committed principal, outstanding teachers, and a very involved parent base. Two of my children currently attend Hunnewell and the third will soon. The close proximity to the Wellesley library is a huge plus as is the short walk to town. Parents in general are very active but there's no pressure to be over-involved. When one of my son's had some difficulty last year, his teacher went above and beyond the scope of her job description to make sure he was learning and that we had a workable plan for him.

I think Hunnewell should get 5 stars! My girl/boy twins are entering Sophomore year at WHS and they graduated from Hunnewell Scholl in 5th grade and it was a fabulous experience. The teachers,staff and parents at the school are all totally committed to the children.
