I am very happy and proud to be a HSS parent. The teachers are dedicated, hard working, caring people. The office staff are friendly and helpful, and the principal is a leader and a true lifelong learner. I believe in a community spirit in the schools and HSS has got it.
My son and daughter have gone to this school. Both have gotten a very good education from some caring teachers. Over the last 2 years though some of the experienced teachers have left the school to go to other Dover schools. The Principal has not seemed to fight for the children's education in getting resources for the kids. His last three teacher hires have all been straight out of college. There are only 2 teachers older than 40 years old now and if this principal keeps going on this pace the avarage age of the teachers won't be much higher than the elementary school students.
My daughter recently started this school and has really enjoyed kindergarten so far. The teachers create a warm, educational, healthy environment for the students. The support staff is wonderful. The principal (in his 2nd year) has strived to improve student testing scores, morale and the general environment in this schoo. We look forward to a great year ahead!
Horne Street school is a great place for children. It's child friendly, all of the teachers are very nice and the education is great.This is a great place to have your children learn!
I have had 2 children go thru Horne Street School and both had been lucky to have great teachers. The staff is readily available and helpful. As to the fundraiser comments it is not pushed as much as much as that first grader may have made it sound. Door to door is not encouraged.Fundraising is needed, it is an unfortunate neccessity in this day of high costs. My kids are very proud to say they went to Horne Street.
My son started first grade this year and I was a little puzzled when my son came home with this packet of stuff to try and sell and began to tell me about if he sells alot he gets this prize. typically I don't think first graders should go out knocking on doors trying to sell products. I know some parents will take their kids stuff to work with them and sell it but where is the kids gratification of the kid who parents sell the stuff for the kid.
My granddaughter attended this school and they just about ruined her life. Asked them several times to test her they never did. Asked them to change her teacher they didn't. Had to take her out of Dover School System - now receiving the help she needed and trying to repair damage inflicted by Horne Street School.
