This review of the Hays-Porter athletes is so unfounded and not true. As one of the spectators at the event. I was delighted to see these very gifted athletes compete. Sitting a few rows down from them I noticed that they were just like all the other Jr. High students there...excited, and cheering for their team. They won the meet and I did not see any of the allegations that are mentioned. This is a sad way to rain on the hard work of those young people. Animals??? That is very degrading!
I have had the wonderful experience of tutoring students at Hays-Porter School. What a delight it is to see these bright young future leaders as they master new academic concepts. Spending time with them has been fabulous. And working with such an awesome group of teachers has been icing on the cake. Go Hays-Porter!
Hays Porter is a great school. I am a parent of a preschool student at Hays Porter that is academically working on a Kindergarten level. Thanks to the supportive staff my daughter has been encouraged to succeed far beyond my expectations. My daughter and her classmates are not only academically advanced they are also socially in tune and ahead of the curve. The school has an overall family atmosphere that I have yet to find at any other schools. From one parent to another if you are looking for a place for your child to be safe, nurtured and educated Hays Porter is the place to be!
I'd never heard of Hays until their track team came to the meet held at Mariemont today and my 8th grader reported that several of the Hays students made physical threats to other kids, used inappropriate language, and one even got on all fours and growled at a group of participants like an animal. Though their efforts on the field were impressive and admirable, I am disappointed by their behavior. What a shame that Hays missed a wonderful opportunity to represent their school and make a positive impression on the surrounding communties within the Cincinnati Public School system.
