Havel Elementary is the only school after preschool that my daughter has attended and her kindergarten school year was tough because the teacher was just really demanding and over bearing but this year she has Mrs. Dolenga and she is doing GREAT!! This teacher is really making a difference in her. The school is really helpful and on top of things. If I didn't have to move I would keep her there. :(
im sorry to say this but havel has really gone downhill inthe last two years. i had 1 child go through k-6 and it was wonderfull. now my 2nd child is in the 6 grade,and i can not wait for him to be out. the last two years have been awefull. some of the old staff is still there and they are not thrilled either. its to bad that this wonderfull school is now a joke. some of the new teachers are just plain rude. i feel they are there for a paycheck and thats about it. i feel the same way about the principal.they just donot care and it shows!!!
My son just finished sixth grade at Havel.He started there in preschool .It is an absolutely wonderful school to attend starting with the office,Mrs. Chuminatto (principal) and teachers. There is a great volunteer league & parents who make a difference!
Both of my children attend this school. One is in 1st grade and the other is in Pre-School. (I absolutely love the pre-school teacher. She sets the bar pretty high for the other teachers!) The teachers, office staff, and other parents are great! And for the other review that said they didn't have latchkey, they do now. This is a wonderful school and I would recommend it to anyone.
i love havel, starting with the staff of office workers ,teachers, volunteers,and the reading programs are tops, they really care about the children the principal is the best she treats the children and parents like we are her family
