If I could give it a 0 star rating I would! I have experienced every negative thing mentioned by this school! I've requested my daughter be tested for a learning disability and they refuse even though she severely struggles. The principal doesn't even step in when bullies are concerned even though my child has been tormented all year! They are slacking to the point they are required to send a letter home each year stating they do not meet academic standards set by the state and the tutoring they have to help this problem does absolutely nothing! Few teachers have actually cared about my childs well being both in learning and safety. The best teacher out there is Nancy Sullivan and if there were more teachers like her it would be a wonderful school! Until the principal steps up and stops letting the bullies run the school it will remain a tortuous place for the children that attend and the parents that are trying to help the problem! My daughter will not be attending this "school" next year because each child deserves a safe caring environment to learn and that is not provided here! This school is detrimental to childrens education and it is disgraceful to even consider it a school

.This school does not have good programs for acceptional children. I am very dissapointed in the way my child was treated as far as his learning goes I feel like he was not given the attention he needed in the subjects he was failing,

I think they could do a lot better at disciplining the students who act up rather than the ones who only defend themselves when provoked. The bus drivers need to learn more patience too.

My child attended HES from kindergarten through 5th grade. She and I both have nothing but positive thoughts and comments about the teachers and staff. The teachers are very qualified and the administration does everything that can be done to make this school top notch. We are proud to be 'Wildcats'.

This school is horrible.. My sister and a few of my family members attended this school years ago. and I myself attended the high school. but I am really dissappointed in the education and attention my son recieved at this school. The staff with he exception of the lunch room and a few of the office personall are rude and not helpful at all. I am glad my child didnt have to attend here for a very long time

I think the school is adequate overall. My child has attended the last two years there. I think the majority of the staff I have met are more into 'teaching a child a lesson' instead of encouraging each and every child to do his or her best. The staff seems out to 'make a point' to a child instead of working with that child. Children are not to be compared. Each and Every child is unique and has unique talents. Mrs. Spell has been a great additon to the school with her leadership. She is the one that makes my child feel great.
