My son used to goto this school. The curriculum is very behind for 1st graders. Our friend's daughter goes here and her spelling words are something for a 3 yr old. One word was "ant". My son is now in Linwood Seaview and his latest spelling words are "greedy", "reward" "consequence". If you want your children to compete in the real world, I would suggest moving out of this district.

Strong academic focus. Large class sizes 25+ children to a class. Cut afterschool activities. Reduced programs for art and music. School serves hundreds of students in grades 2-5.

George L. Hess academic programs are strong, extracurricular activities are inclusive, and parent involvement is welcomed. Many thanks, to faculty and staff for preparing our children for living and learning in the 21st century.
