Hershey Elementary school does a wonderful job of balancing child encouragement, teacher support and administrator involvement. The PTO is first rate, giving their time, money and talents to provide support wherever it is needed. I am proud to be a parent of two daughters who have had the privilege of being a part of this school community.
My son came from a private school and this school is just as good. I am glad to know that I can still count on a great education from a public school. One thing I enjoy is the ability to communicate with the teacher weather email or phone, and getting a prompt response. The school website is eassy to navigate and has all relevant information.
Although my son didn't have a great experience last year in 2nd grade, his teacher this year is ideal. Very focused on positive feedback and is working diligently with students to increase their level of responsibility. Has built in allowances for mistakes, but has great accountability. Classroom is very pleasant atmosphere and my child is happy and learning!
This school is state of the art. It is a beautiful facility with top of the line teachers. It is amazing to see students in first grade writing stories and working with fractions! Parent involvement is appreciated and there is never a shortage of parents to help in the classroom.
Three of my children have attended this school and I can't say enough good things about it! Children are encouraged to expand their minds in all disciplines from the very start. Parental involvement is extraordinary. The core philosophy of the school seems to be: never underestimate a child's potential. The children feel loved, nurtured and respected.
