Hellenic Classical Charter School 5

HCCS is a great school! Please visit and update your information. HCCS is a warm, nurturing and accepting environment. The student population is diverse and the children make it work. The school facility has been recently renovated and it is just wonderful. The new gym, music and art rooms are amazing! The new classrooms are big and airy and allow for ample space for the children to move freely in the classroom. Student Instruction is differentiated based on each child's need and teachers routinely keep parents informed about student progress. Students are exposed to technology throughout the day in various ways forms - teacher instruction on smartboards, student use of iPads or laptops, etc. In middle school, this year, my children started to learn Latin (in addition to Greek). 7th graders are given free SHSAT test prep and as the parent of multiple children is a life saver. The school's 8th graders routinely are accepted into the city's specialized high schools and best private and high schools! The PTA works hard to offer lots of fun activities for the families including chess instruction on Fridays, BINGO and family movie nights.

My child spent elementary and middle school at HCCS. My child developed a condition from young which required an IEP, which went undetected till HS. These teachers are not equipped to spot test anxiety or any learning disability. If the child doesn't perform academically, these frustrated children are usually labeled as a troubled or worse ACS is wrongfully called.

Our child's academics have went up dramatically from a public school. The staff is amazing you can speak to all teachers without a hassle. They address any concern you may have. It's a great feeling knowing your child is taken care of in a safe and healthy environment.

Amount of homework: Just right

Every homework assigned is from the work they have addressed in class that day. I could look at my child's notes for that day and understand how to help my child with his homework.

Every teacher takes the time out to help students in all areas of need. If I feel like my child needs help, I reach out and the help is administered.

I transferred my son from a public school to Hellenic. Hellenic took the time to learn my son and help bring him to the level of greatness that he can achieve. My son loves going to school everyday and brags to his friends about the level of learning he is receiving for his grade level. You see and feel the compassion everyone has foe each other and it makes you want to pinch yourself to see if it is real.

100% hands down Hellenic classical promotes honesty, integrity ans fairness. Each and every staff and student is held accountable for their actions. This is why they have succeeded for so many years and have had the ability to expand their build. Helping students reach their full potential is what they strive for and I see it in my own child.

It is always welcoming when you are greeted by your name from staff member and administration. When you walk into the school you feel the love everyone has for each other. They welcome you with open arms and make you feel at ease when dropping off your children.

All the teacher set high expectations for all students to achieve greatness. They all push the students to their maximum ability and they never give up on the student.
