Great school! My daughter's third grade teacher, Mrs. Cegelis (Brundage) is simply fantastic. My child raves about her consistently. Thank you for the great work you do Mrs. Cegelis, you are appreciated! Not a big fan of the principal, seems to be solely test score motivated.

Great shcool. Principle and Staff is wonderful and dedicated to the students. I have three that goes to the shcool, 5th 4th and kindergarten. I wouldn't want them to go anywhere else.

Although we love this school, the major problem is the principal. Like many other have posted, she cares about herself and her well being than the well being of the students or the teachers. I honestly can not believe she is still allowed to run this school because in our opinion, because she does not care and she is running this school into the ground. It's a shame to see how bad it has become.

Great teachers . . . but terrible leadership. All creativity is gone and all administration seems to care about is test scores. Never see them out of the office. Not very child friendly or welcoming.

HVE is a school that is committed to excellence. A wonderful environment for learning and top scores. The staff and administration are dedicated to the students, and are amazing.

I have been very happy with my child's educational experience at HVE. He has been blessed to have excellent teachers and assistants both years. His teachers not only address his educational needs, but foster a loving and nurturing atmosphere. He has grown academically and socially while attending. Also, the principal is responsive and involved and makes sure to know her students, teachers and parents. We are very fortunate for our child to attend HVE.

We left this school because although many of the teachers were wonderful, the administration was unwelcoming and unresponsive to concerns.There was a rigid, punitive atmosphere, rather than a collaborative attitude and willingness to hear feedback. When asked why the gym teacher never (not once) took the children outside, the assistant principal said "because it's easier to control the children inside."

This school is a blessing for us and our daughter! The Principal and Teachers are wonderful and my child has done so well her 2nd and 3rd grade years. I feel very welcomed and the office staff greets me with a smile every time I show up. This school is Top Rank! :)

I am so blessed to have my child attend HVE. The principal, teachers and office staff clearly go out of their way to foster and nurture a positive learning environment. Never have my questions and or needs been brushed aside or made trivial. In fact, the follow up to even the basic of inquiries has been simply amazing. This is a true reflection of the principal and staff. Thank you HVE
