Huber st is the worst school ever. the principle doesn't believe anything unless your parents are in the pta. there is a lot of bullying going around and the principle doesn't care about it. the one thing I say is you need a different principle but the staff is great


Posted June 4, 2013

Being an educator and realizing the importance of small details in education and how they play a role in your child's life, I admire the school, its teachers and faculty. They do go the extra mile to make it the best. My son cannot imagine being in another school and has had the best time of his life here. I hope the middle school will be just as enjoyable, but that's another phase of life, so we'll see.

Huber St. School is a wonderful school, the teacher's go the extra mile to make sure, your kids are getting the education they need and deserve, they also have a wonderful PTA. This is the second year my kids are here and I would not trade it for nothing. My First grader reads fluently and my third grater has never been so happy to go to school.

The teachers are very focused with the curriculum and show great interest in the overall development of children. The teachers and the principal utilize the time to the maximum benefit of the children.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
