Horrible! We didn't realize how bad of an education our kids were receiving until we moved recently and enrolled our children. They are so very far behind. We don't claim to have genius kids by any stretch. They received As and Bs but are at least 2 grades behind. The teachers and administration just don't care.
Great school. Great leadership. Great teachers. Great parent involvment. My daughter who has been at Huffaker for 3 years loves this school.
I attended Huffaker for 2nd-6th grade and graduated in 2000. Like all of the other comments posted here, it is by far the best elementary and probably any school in the entire Washoe Country School system. Every teacher I had was outstanding. My parents, as well as other parents, were very involved in the school. While I was there I had no idea how lucky I was to have gone there and for tuition free. Unfortunately we moved out of state and I went from a rated 10 school to about a 2. I miss this school.
I attended first grade at Huffaker Elementary School in 1957. I remember it fondly. I learned to read there and I had many friends. I had a wonderful teacher, but I forgot her name. I have some of the most beautiful memories of childhood at this school, but I think it was located at another address. I Loved it!!!
We are moving to Reno from Oklahoma, my granddaughter is learning delayed and has health issues that do affect her school/classroom involvement. What programs do you offer for learning delayed students. Do you have good counselors on staff
I cant say enough wonderful things about tis school! My daughter has been in four schools this one is by far the best ,maybe in all of Washoe County!
I can't say enough good things about this school. We have two daughters attending since Feb '09 and both are doing very well with lots of teacher involvement. 10 months ago, our daughters were adopted from Ukraine and only spoke Russian; now both are mostly mainstreamed in their classes. I see the Principle involved in daily activities and interacting with both students and parents. Let me just say that I commute 18 miles every school day so my daughters can attend this school. I would hope that speaks for itself.
Our daughter recently graduated from the afternoon kindergarden class at Huffaker. The teacher is experienced and has made a tremendous impact on our daughter's learning. The school is great, from the staff to the parents who are very involved.
Huffaker is a school strong in values, confidence in the children and parent participation. My son has attended for 2 years and my dauther for 1 year. Each year I am impressed with the caliber of teacher they have. The principal and support staff are very involved on an individual basis and make the entire experience easier. Somehow the teachers find not only time for the basics, but also for projects and teaching above and beyound the base level. The PTA is highly involved and present many opportunities for the kids: such as an outstanding music program, art program and Jr. Achievement. I highly recommend this school and am glad we choose it!
This is the best school in Washoe County! The family involvement is outstanding as are the teachers. They all really seem to enjoy what they do.
Moving to Reno from AZ in the middle of fifth grade was hard, but this school challenged me and helped me reach my full potential. The most memorable part of this experience, however, was the field trips, like Outdoor Ed... I will never forget that adventure!
Consistently rates as the best elementary school in Washoe (NV) county in terms of student achievement and learning! Great school program and fabulous teachers.
