As a parent of a student that attended Hutchinson from K-5th grade, I cannot Thank this school enough for the outstanding education they have provided for my child. Mr. Mansfield and the teachers at this school provide one of the finest educations that can be offered to our children. Thank you again. Ken and Diane B.

I was a student at Hutchinson and I loved it. The principal is great and the teachers are wonderful. I hope to be a teacher their very soon.

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.

Posted January 19, 2005

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.

In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles.
