My grandson attended this school for three years before moving out of state. We had a wonderful experience in grades K-2. The teachers are creative and they know their students very well. The environment is warm and supportive from the administrators to the specialty staff. I particularly like the emphasis on teaching the children to accept individual differences. In addition I like the curriculum that helps student learn to resolve conflicts and avoid bullying.
We have our daughter there, and we are really happy with everything. From teaching level to social interact. Is an school not only focus on reach the highest level of the annual program, also focus on each children feelings. Thank you very much Honey Creek Community School.
My son went here for K-1 and now he goes to our local public school and what a difference. I found out my son was starting 2nd grade way behind in his reading and writing. He never learned out how to form his letters and needed a lot of work on his reading. It was a harsh reality to find out he wasn't learning anything in 2 years. There is way too much "Free choice" and very little instruction, even in gym class. Also, they do not celebrate any normal holidays or even say the Pledge of Elegance. Now in public school my son is doing great and has caught up to his reading level. I did like the swimming lessons they offered but swimming during the week was useless because of no instruction. The aftercare was good and the summer camp was good, too but academics were very poor. Do lots of research before deciding.
it is a very great school, everybody should go there. It is very great school!!! Everybody should go there
when I think of HCCS, I get a warm, wonderful feeling inside and when I encounter kids from HC elsewhere, I just feel pride, as I did today at Pioneer Theatre Guild, seeing Dana, Max, Evan, and others in the programme. My daughter spent 9 years at Honey Creek, and it helped her expand her mind and her social/problem solving skills immensely. Some of the teachers there are the best I have experienced, including just about the whole middle school. She was totally prepared for high school and is pulling straight A's at a very competitive place. I love Honey Creek!
The teachers, small class size, project based learning, the community, and he list goes on
Honey Creek has a project-based curriculum, so children are active learners and apply knowledge to real situations. Honey Creek emphasizes service (to the school and the community) throughout the curriculum. The teachers are creative, talented, and incredibly devoted. The administration does everything possible to support learning and create a safe atmosphere where children can learn and thrive. The PTO has supported initiatives in technology, wellness, Science-Technology-Math-Engineering education, and fine arts. The community is diverse, close-knit, and welcoming. The families care about the school and are deeply involved in their children's education. Although not as well funded as other schools in the state, Honey Creek achieves in the top 10%. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Honey Creek is a charter school that focuses on team work and community. Small, friendly classrooms with a total focus on the student. Teachers are called by their first names and they have camps every year that focus on team building and friendship. Classes are fun and diverse in age.
Honey Creek puts children first. The hands-on, project-based program give children the opportunity to construct greater understanding and develop complex problem solving skills.
My daughter is a special needs (visually impaired ) student in the 4th grade currently attending Honey Creek Community School. This is her second year as a student there. Honey Creek is the best academic and social environment she has ever been a part of. The staff, from administration down to classroom instructors, is exceptional, and unparalled in their skill, knowledge base, and level of commitment to the students. I am constantly overwhelmed and so grateful of what a wonderful opportunity this has been for my daughter. She has grown socially and academically in ways we had always hoped. Other schools were unable to help her cultivate her true potential as a student, and Honey Creek has done that, and more.Their tireless commitment to her development is something that we, as a family, feel very blessed to have. We only wish she could attend through 12th grade! Elena Kaltsas
Honey Creek is a diverse school with great teachers and a real community feel.
It teaches to the whole child and is a caring community for the whole family
We educated two kids there, and they turned out confident, loving and positive about learning. HCCS is more like a family than a school in some ways, with increasingly strong curriculum and assessment practices, and it's small, caring and accountable.
I worked at Honey Creek for three years before a move forced me to find a job elsewhere. What I appreciate most is the community the school provides. As after school staff and a sub, I still knew the names and interests of each student, staff and was on a first name basis with a lot of the parents. Everyone had a genuine concern for each individual and welcomed the insight and opinions of others in order to achieve the best education for every student.
What I love about Honey Creek Community School is the sense of caring and true value and worth of all students. The teachers take pride in their students and this is reflected through positive student achievement, academic service learning and supportive families of the students. Teamwork is not only demonstrated with students, but with all the faculty and staff throughout the school!
The teachers work really hard to meet the needs of ALL students. And the needs are not just academic; Honey Creek looks at the social, emotional and physical part of all children.
Because it encourages each and every student to ask questions, to seek answers, to be citizens of the world.
The teachers are incredible and the project based, thematic, engaging, challenging, and fun curriculum give all students an opportunity to succeed. It is an incredible place where people don't just talk about creating a caring community, they truly are one. This school has some of the highest student achievement scores in the state and also one of the safest school environments. Honey Creek is a great place for every child to go to school. Keep up the fantastic work, all families, students, faculty, and staff! You truly make a difference.
Creative, dedicated teachers and administration. Project-based curriculum. Focus on community service. Small classes. Did I mention the fabulous teachers?
