Horatio B. Hackett Elementary School - A great school with caring parents, dedicated staff and wonderful students who all understand that learning comes first. Hackett also has an exceptional special education program to serve many different needs.
This is an amazing school. My 4 children have attended for the last 10 years. I love the level of care all of the staff & teachers have always provided to the children & families!
Hackett Elementary School is a wonderful school with a dedicated staff. Everyone is invested in giving the students the very best education possible!
Horatio B. Hackett Elementary School is an amazing learning environment with a dedicated and caring staff.
I am a Hackett graduate of 1977! I had some of the best teachers in the Philadelphia SD at Hackett. It was during my time there that I decided I would become a teacher too. I have had the privilege of returning to Hackett in 1988 as a teacher to work with my former teachers! I have also been a Hackett parent as my two children attended and graduated from Hackett. The Hackett staff is hardworking and dedicated to helping all students succeed, become problem solvers and life long learners. In the 27 years I've been teaching, I have taught children of my former classmates from my time at Hackett and children of my former students. What a joy it is for me to have students come back to visit and tell me about their lives and careers. Some even register their children at Hackett and I get to have them in my class too. Come and visit Hackett !! See for yourself the great programs and opportunities we have available for our students.
Hacket is an awesome school, they are a great contributer to the neighborhood and the kids are great!!
Hackett has an amazing principal, fantastic teachers, and a dedicated staff. Everyone I meet in our community that goes to or went to Hackett has nothing but good things to say about it. Hackett has persevered through the budget shortfalls with remarkable resourcefulness to provide the students a learning atmosphere. Great things are happening at Hackett.
Hackett is a wonderful neighborhood school and an asset to the community. The teachers and staff are so caring and really give the children that individual attention that they need. My daughter is thriving there and loves the art and music programs.
Hackett is a vibrant learning community and neighborhood school! They have dedicated staff and teachers and care deeply about improving the face of public education in Philadelphia.
I went to this school when i was 7 years old. It was a great school because no other school would accept me because of my disability. But i had to leave after i finished my 2nd grade year to move to other house. But in the end, this was the best school i went to.
I like the school but the meals should be improved.Also parent's should be involved in more activities with there children.
Excellent Life Skills classrooms. The school suffers from the same lack of funds and support that almost all Philadelphia schools suffer from.
I have two disabled children in Hackett. Both of the teachers and classroom aides take good care of them. My older child was bounced around for two years,before he was finally admitted to Hackett. I feel better now that he is learning again.
I have a child in the fourth grade as well as the second grade. My children are eager to learn but there are some teachers that just don't want to work with the children. I am a parent with a special needs child and I am very into my children's education. The are no extracurricular activities for children in the grade below the third and I feel that this is unfair to the children that want to do more at the school.
As a parent of a special needs child I have had a hard time getting my child assessed. The school has not followed thru with the request for age not grade placement.
