My children attended this school and it is excellent. I suspect that any poor reviews are submitted by parents whose children present problems in any school. There are many ethnicities represented at this school and that makes it a much better education for all. Former HWES parent

Initiatives are put into place that allow teachers to model honesty, integrity, and fairness and how these qualities can enhance their students' lives. Each month the focus is on a particular character trait and it is highlighted throughout the school, by every member of the school. Children are intrinsically and extrinsically rewarded for displaying these qualities.

This school has everything to offer to prepare our students for the 21st century. Instruction is individualized and tailored to meet the needs of EVERY student. EVERY student matters at Harbison West!

The HWES pledge teaches all students about the role they play in being good students, good friends and good citizens. Character building is a daily part of the school routine.

So blessed and thankful to be a part of the Harbison West family. The school offers a quality experience for BOTH of our children - a son who completed the Escolares program for gifted and talented students and a daughter with special needs who has been attended since she was only 3 years old. There's no better educational opportunity for BOTH of them than HWES.

I love this school! It is THE BEST elementary school in Lexington 5. My daughter, has received THE BEST teachers, friends, events, community etc from this school. If you ever hear bad reviews about this school, and are hesitant to send your child here (if you are zoned here), I beg you to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, come check it out for your self. Take a tour, meet the fabulous Principal, and Vice. Principal, teachers, and grades. You will then learn that old rumors, are OLD rumors!! This school also have a program for "the gifted and talented". My daughter is not in the program however, she is receiving just as good education as the gifted classes. Do not be fooled by hateful people if they tell you this is a bad school. Do your homework, see the A+'s that they get now, and please send your child here. You will be so happy that you did!

My daughter comes home happy, confident, and does nothing but want to go back to school the next day after coming home each day. I am friends with many parents who send there children here, and everyone agrees. This is THE BEST elementary school.
