Errol Hassell Elementary School5

We have had Three birth children and numerous Foster children lucky enough to call this school their own.... every teacher that we have had has become a "partner" in our education goals for the kids.. they all seem to really care for their students and often go above and beyond the basic standards.. the principles that we have had have all been GREAT.. our oldest started there in 1994 and our youngest is there now.... so we have a 20 year history with this school... I only wish that the middle and High schools in the Area could be as good as Errol Hassell... We believe that the partnership that the school has with the parents (they really encourage parent involvement) is one of the reasons that make this such a great school.
What a fabulous school! The teachers are kind, attentive and inspirational to the students and parents alike. No question that the 2012-13 budget cuts have created a huge strain on the entire Beaverton School District, Yet this school seems to rise to the challenge and provide the students with everything they need.
I have heard nothing but good things about this school. My son is starting Kindergarten there. I am giving five stars to counteract the one star left by a parent who obviously has no idea what extreme measures the district had to take this school year due to budget cuts. Hopefully things will only get better from here!
Unfortunately, our child cannot go to school here. The kindergarten class has 38 children! Can you believe that? It seems like there should be some type of law not allowing that. According to the district office, the principal had to decide which grades to cut. So, a few days before school started she decided to get rid of the other kindergarten teacher! Why would kindergarten have the most students of all the grade levels? This used to be a good school, but after the budget cuts all the schools are not doing well. I just can't bring my child to a place like this. It really is sad. There used to be handprints on the walls from years of children who had earned hornet points for being good citizens and making a positive difference... Well, SOMEBODY decided to paint over those handprints. What does that tell you?
