I think at best this school is average even though it's in one of the best areas of Hastings Nebraska. The way they treat the children and the leadership there is very poor. My child attended Watson for 3 years and is now in her 2nd year at another Hastings elem and the difference is like night and day between the 2 schools. The difference has reflected in positive ways in her grades, attitude towards going to school and at home behavior. I suggest if it "just don't feel right" for you or your child, seek another alternative because not all schools are equal.

Teachers are great at Watson school. Principal leadership need a little bit more focus. It is a safe and good environment.

Two of my children have been attending Watson El.for two years now and their experience overall has been a good one. The teachers we've had at Watson genuinely care about the students. Also, I've been very pleased with the professionalism and dedication of my children's teachers. I think my childen have learned while at Watson. They've not really been pushed, but they've stayed busy learning new material. There is one area I'd like to see improved upon, and that's the fun stuff, the stuff that makes going to school exciting. I'd like more school wide units of study, school wide assemblies, more school wide student recognition... But that comes from the principal and ours isn't real enthusiatic! Overall it's a good school.
