The teachers at this school work very hard. With all the changes in curriculum, they work hard to make sure no student is left behind.

This school has gone downhill quickly while my children have attended. We finally resorted to pulling one of our children from the school due to pervasive bullying. We witnessed it on several occasions, reporting it many times. The school administration dismisses it and fails to take action unless complaints are escalated to the superintendent. Horrible atmosphere for learning. No child should be in fear for their safety on a daily basis. It is no wonder that test scores have plummeted over the past couple years. This school was a 9/10 until they replaced the entire administrative team. It is now a 5/10 and is hardly worthy of that, in my opinion.

The school is clean & orderly. The teachers are very intune with the students. I am not wild about the report grading system as it does not show what the child is doing in class. I think the old grading system of ABCDF was much easier to understand.

Hutchinson is a school that is really focused on the academic success of its students. The PTA really provides so many wonderful things for the children. The principals are friendly, visable, and approachable. The teachers are all knowledgable and encourage parents to be active in their children's education. They also offer many programs for exceptional learners. The building is very safe and clean. They are also building a new playground for the children this year. The VIP (voluteers in partnership) program gets the community involved in the school by helping out wherever needed. I personally like Hutchison and feel good about sending my children there.

I had a very postive first year at Hutchinson with my daughter in kindergarten. I think that the school's principal is a wonderful man who really cares about the students. He is always present at events and available for parents and students to talk to. The teachers are great and the curiculum is very good. The school offers many opportunities for parental involvment and also encourages it. The school has a great art show and science show every year. The PTA is very active and offers many fun things for the students. I was aprehensive of public school education since I attended private schools as a child, but Hutchinson has been very good at alievating my fears and misconceptions about public education. I'm glad my daughter gets up everyday excited to go to her school.

I believe the large number of students enrolled in the afterschool tutoring programs and such lends credence to the fact that this school focuses more on extracurricular activities than it does to its academic programs. While students thoroughly know the dangers of smoking and the art of swimming - they lack an understanding of reading, writing, and arithmatic. Parental involvement is welcome only if the parent pays the PTA dues. There are no non-sugary items available for breakfasts. The playground is virtually unmonitored when it comes to adults, not associated with the school, having access to the children at recess time.
