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.
