My son went to a city school for Kindergarten and they were unable to provide the level of challenge that he needed. He was very discouraged by school as a result and so we moved to this district. He attended 1st grade at Hartwood and now is in 2nd grade there. We could not be more pleased! They were able to promptly get him into the gifted program and advanced classes to challenge him appropriately, they are wonderful at helping him learn to manage his day since this involves switching around a bit and he loves the classroom environment. He thanks us for switching his school! We think they do a great job and we are looking forward to our younger children having this experience as well!

My daughter has had a great experience here, however, my son has not. During kindergarten and first grade he frequently came home with stomach aches and did not want to go to school the next day. The parents are not welcomed and stopped at the desk-even if you want to walk your child's birthday treat to his or her room. They will let you, if you make a big deal about, but most of the time they want you out. Not very happy with the school, but that has been my experience.

I have a daughter in kindergarten & she loves the school. My daughter is a very happy & busy child that had a bad experience at a previous school with a kindergarten teacher that should not be allowed to teach & my daughter had decided that she did not like school anymore. Then we moved to Hartwood and she now loves school again!! The teachers are FANTASTIC!! They are loving and understanding of each child. Keep up the good work!!
