I have two children currently there and 2 more to come. They have started with kindergarten and now in 1st and 3rd grade. My son's 1st grade teacher is phenomenal! He goes way beyond what a teacher's duties are and beyond what any parent could ask for! If you even need help with your child at home on an issue he is right there willing to help. My daughter has had some great teachers as well they are concerned with what s best for the child while at school no matter what and willing to help any possible way really great team I think thus far a few excellent teachers are what makes the school go round.

I have 2 children there one in 1st and one in third both since kindergarten. I find most teachers are more than willing to help and a great 1st grade teacher really goes out of his way and is much more than just a teacher for the students. They are very understanding yet corrective when need be.

My son is only in kindergarten this year but so far our experience with Hambright has been wonderful. He really enjoys school and I am able to get involved in a lot of activities. The staff at Hambright is also great!
