Five Hawks is a fantastic school. My daughter has attended 1st--3rd grades, and all of her teachers have been terrific. They have all shown a genuine interest and understanding of each child and have a true talent for presenting material in exciting and creative ways. The principal is also wonderful; he knows the name of each child and is kind and funny while also keeping order. The administrative staff members are efficient and supportive, and the PTC is active and provides a lot of additional support. You couldn't ask for a better school!
