If you had asked me last year I would have given this school 5 stars but this year I hassles change of heart. There is a new principal and she seems to have taken a.lot of love out of the school. Testing this year has been insane. Some of the teachers are down right bullies and devalued the students (I have experienced this first hand with being devalued myself) and even though I would say most of the staff is good - the pressure and intensity becomes too much for the students to handle. A lot of the struggles have to do w NC standards but the way this school has chosen to handle it is a bit over the top.

I'm so very impressed with this school. My son is in K and he has probably the greatest teacher one could ask for. I like everything about the school specially the faculty. We are very fortunate to have gotten him in. I'm a little worried about having to move out of the state soon, but know that this school has done him a world of good.

HES is a very community friendly school. Academics are stressed in a warm and caring environment. The calendar is great for students and teachers providing periodic breaks and enrichment activities as well as reading and math remediation and support. It really is a school for all seasons.

Our son did his kindergarten from HES and now we are moving. We are very academically conscious parents and are very satisfied and happy for our boy. He loves his school, his teacher is very caring and the staff is very friendly. We highly recommend this school for any child.

I am a fellow Bearcat and expected only the best, but H.E.S. has exceeded my expectations. The YRE program is wonderful. The staff is friendly, helpful and promote parental involvement. The school offers enrichment activities between each 9 week period that range from crafts to gymnastics to science. I will truly hate to move when the time comes, but I know my daughter will have a wonderful foundation for her next school.

I love the flex program. The teachers here at HES are the best! My daughter loves everyone there & feels like they are all there just for HER ! I tell everyone to do WHATEVER they need to do to get thier child in our school. The Bonus Learning classes are the best ... so well rounded, as far as the life skills & FUN go. I can't give enough praise to the staff & the wonderful parents who give of thier time to help our childern out. I feel very Blessed to be a part of Hendersonville Elemantary School!

Love the year round program and low student/teacher ratio. I just wish they had more recess time after lunch.
