I can't say enough how much I love Horne Street School. I've had two children there for the past year & a half. The teachers have been very skilled, & responsive to both my kids' needs, & my own concerns. Our current teacher basically has an individual education plan for each child in her class. For example, she gives each student a separate weekly spelling test according to her own ability. So she challenges the children equally regardless of their level. The new principal, Mike McKenney, is enthusiastic and engaging. Most mornings he's at the front door greeting the children by name. There is an active parent/teacher group that organizes after-school sports, movie nights, halloween dances, etc. The building itself is clean, cheerful, & in good repair. Classrooms have smart boards, computers, flowers, & music. Kids sit in groups of 8 and help each other to learn. One comment noted the youth of the teachers. Personally, I find it refreshing to see younger faces along with seasoned pros. My first child attended a much higher-ranked district, but I found it difficult to be involved, & I received much less feedback from the teachers. Regardless of test scores, HSS is a 10.

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!
