My child is a student in the Escolares program at HWES. Prior to tranferring to HWES for Escolares he was bored in his classes. He is now being challenged to learn and do more. I am very thankful for the many opportunities for him that are available at HWES.

HWES staff gives students many opportunities to be good citizens, through donations of items for those in need, and service opportunities to help others.

School wide expectations are put in place. All students are expected to adhere to them. Our teachers are very conscious of the expectations and create memorable teaching moments to remind students to be respectful to all who enter the doors of Harbison West.

Each month the children are encouraged to donate to a cause. They collect dry goods for food banks, toiletries for nursing homes, among other initiatives.
