One of the best elementary schools in Washoe County. Roy Gomm, and Elizabeth Lenz switch among the top three annually with Hunsburger. Schools in Nevada are underfunded, but Hunsburger does a good job with the resources it has. The material condition of the building is excellent. My two boys are in the School Within A School (SWAS program). It is an incredibly good program for very gifted children. They are all put in the same class with other SWAS kids and have terrific teachers providing advanced instruction. In short, if your kid is gifted, SWAS is great. For other kids, Hunsburger is one of the best elementary schools in a very challenging environment.

After searching the entire nation for the best school for my children, we chose Hunsberger ES. We moved to Reno for this school and it never fails to EXCEED my every expectation! With my oldest child being 26, I have been involved with the Public and Private School systems for many years, none come close to HES! The Principal is there because she LOVES the children and what she does! She leads by an example of dedication, compassion and amazing support! The staff and parents follow in her lead. This school was just awarded the #1 ES in the state and when you enter through the front doors you are quick to realize why! One of my children is in the GATE program and the other is on an IEP. Both have their needs met attentively. I can't say enough good things about the staff and nurturing environment there! HES is an explemplary school that all should have the pleasure to experience!!!

The school has become overcrowed. Compared to nearby schools the enrollment here is almost double that of Lenz. The test scores dropped drammatically since the growth. The teachers remain the same, excellent, but there are kids here that do not live in this neighborhood attending this school. They are the siblings of the SWAS kids. This neighborhood is made of exclusive single family homes, but now there is tremendous economic diversity that did not previously exist. This can be both good and bad.

Excellent teachers and the principal! Our first child started his 1st grade in Hunsbeger and now he is a 3rd grader in SWAS program in Hunsberger, he made huge academic progress in the past two years! Now the school offers full time kindergarten which benefits our younger child!

I think this it the best elementary school in Reno. We looked at a lot of schools before we moved back to Reno and were really impressed with this school and the principal. I have two children in Hunsberger and they love it and are getting an excellent education.

Came from a really bad public school to Hunsberger. It is 100x better, so far.

The principal and teachers at Ted Hunsberber Elementary really care about the children and the school and really care about their education. They are very positive and reward good behavior and handle oor behavior quickly and efficently. Both my children have had a wonderful teacher that they love every year and want to do well in school because of that. The school has a very good feeling when you walk down the hallways. Thank you Hunsberger family!

The school moved to number 1 in 2010, this reflects the parental involvement and teachers. They now have an all day kindergarten and the school within a school program.

My 6-yr old loves it there. Check out their Accountability Report online at the Washoe school district website, it simply is the best overall.

I had a kindergartener this past year and was very pleased with the entire school experience -- great teachers, great students, great parents with lots of parental involvement. While the 2 1/2 hour day was short, if you can manage the schedule for kindergarten I highly recommend it! The kids learned far more in that 2 1/2 hours than I would have expected, and they seem ready and enthusiastic about entering 1st grade.

I have three children who attend Hunsberger and love it! My son has behaviorial challenges and the Principal and Dean of the School have really helped my son. He has never been judged, instead is has been loved unconditionally, but with appropriate firmness. The teacher, principal, and Dean have kept my husband and I very informed of his school work and behavior. I would never go anywhere else!
