My daughter went to this school Kdg. - 5th grade and they helped build a strong foundation for her academics. She is still in the Riverview district and still speaks fondly of her time at Huntington. She comes back to volunteer even. The principal, teachers, staff are awesome! They truly care about the students and never give up. Parent Club is exceptional and are constantly looking for new ways to entertain the kids through educational activities. I myself am still actively involved with the school because they make me feel welcome.
I am a former student of Huntington....(30 long years ago!). I have many fond memories of this place: playing kickball behind the school, studying math under the trees, making "pinch pots" in the art room, and eating green spaghetti in the lunchroom (the principal was proud to be Irish and loved to host an annual "green lunch" for all of the students on St. Patrick's day). If you are considering Huntington as a place to send your child, I HIGHLY recommend it. I feel that Huntington gave me a wonderful foundation to "make it" in the world. I am currently working in the medical profession.
I am very satisfied with the quality of education provided in this school. Mrs. Mauradian (kindergarten teacher) is a great addition to the faculty. The school comes up with good programs and the children learn something new each day.
Huntington elementary is an absolute nightmare. Class size is around 30 students on average - too big. Mrs. King is extremely ineffective, will not address issues that continue to be problematic for many kids and parents. Bullying is terrible. There are many kids in class that do not belong in mainstream classrooms but are left there and are a constant disruption for other kids trying to learn. The lunchroom is so overcrowded that kids are packed in to tightly they cannot move...Truthfully I don't know how they even breathe. It is that crowded. All that seems to matter is that they pack in as many out of district kids as they can to get more $$$ from the state. Every child is a mere dollar sign to them. Sad but true. Most of the teachers are great but there is little they can do when they have 30 kids in class.
