The area is a great place to raise your kids. Hornell puts alot into their sports programs, which is not bad but is not balanced out in academics and that is too bad. You rarely see student athletes from Hornell going on to get athletic scholarship..because they are not held up in the classroom. This is an area for future improvement and not yet out of reach in this district. The school is going through alot of systems level changes and most for the good of students. It should be interesting to see what happens in the next five years!
