It's interesting to note that the people below who wrote that Hinman was the worst school by far, have hated all the schools their daughter attends because the schools get on them for not sending their daughter to school, or for not getting their daughter glasses, etc. It is because of parents like these who don't care about their child's education that some schools test scores are lower than the state or the nation.
This is by far the worse school my daughter has ever attended. This school is ran by bullies who care more about test scores and attendance than anything else. I see all these great reviews yet find myself looking over the test scores and how it compares nationaly and have to just shake my head. Yeah its a great school if you omit the national average. Even the state average for that matter. Thank God we are moving is my final thought.
I don't know what the previous complaintant is talking about! The Vice Principal (learn to spell, previous parent!) is awesome, and knows what she is talking about. She is straightforward, and doesn't beat around the bush. She told me exactly what was happening with my child, and gave me a variety of resources, and now my child is turned around. The kids love her, but they don't want to get into trouble. The Principal is dedicated to ensuring every student read at grade level before leaving that school. She doesn't want any "down" time in class. She holds kids and parents accountable for learning. The teachers are great, and the kids for the most part, are really good. I would recommend this school to any family!
Basics parents should know. This school focus' is testing! They are so worried about STAR ratings and TITLE 1 money that the basic color/cut/paste, along with holiday programs and traditional values are very left out. Its a CLOSED campus so if you are a parent or grandparent wishing to visit or have lunch with the student, its not allowed. With NV ranking in the bottom 10 in the US for education, maybe they should refocus the non stop testing, and just go back to teaching. Many schools do well, the top 10 in the US with out TiTLE 1 funds, computers in classrooms, and dropped traditional teaching practices.
The vice principle at this school is a loose cannon mistreats children and parents completely un professional no incentive to learn no redirection just punishment screams at parents and children and should be removed from the school system altogether you want a RED FLAG here it is parents beware I'm currently in the process of having her removed and if you've experienced the same thing my family I can use all the help I can get
What ever happened to no child left behind? My husband is very ill, bed ridden to be exact, I have four children. I am the only one that works. I get home to help all of them with their homework around 6:00 at night. These teachers have the gumption to say that I refuse to help my child with their homwork!!! we stay up till 9:00 at night to satisfy these so called teachers. Now I got a threatening letter from someone with no name listed saying that my child will be removed from the class that is helping him with his reading. They had said that I refuse to help him with his homework. I do not refuse to help my child with their homwork, who would ever do that. He gets his homework done as he is supposed to. This is not right. So my child is having a hard time learning how to read and now you are removing him from his special class? Insane, what kind of teachers or administration is this if they are refusing to help children?
My daughter just started 1st grade at Hinman 3 weeks ago. I was happy with the way her teacher was very informative regarding all her work and what her classroom procedures are. This week my daughter had an incident with another student and I sent a letter to her teacher. The same afternoon I recieved a call from the Asst. Principal stating the situation was addressed and my daughter had a "go to" person for support if needed. I'm very happy with this school.
I am a district employee, and this is one of the most laid back school i have ever been to. The staff, teachers, principals ... they're ALL great!
The school is very convient for my sisters kids to walk too. The staff is very friendly.
My twin girls started going to this school in first grade and left when they were in third grade only becuase we moved. The gilrs and I both loved this school the staff is great and the Teachers are awesome they really care about there students.
Hinman is a great neighborhood school. All teachers, administrators and staff go out of their way to make students feel welcomed. My daughter, who is now in 2nd grade, has been going to Hinman since Kindergarten and absolutely loves school. I have her teachers to thank for that. I look foward to my youngest daughter starting school there next year.
My son is a special needs child and has been attending this school for 7 months. He is on the Autistic Spectrum and has done so well in Ms. Stapley's class. I am so happy with his progress and the wonderful teachers, that I am continuing his education at this school.
This school is great! It's clean and it has peer ediators at recess time. All of the teachers make sure that every student in their class understands the topic. Mrs. Flavell is a great 4th grade teacher!
