I have had two children go through Hunt Meadows. Both Very Smart. My oldest was glorified for her wit and intelligence, my younger child, a straight A, Highest Test Score, IQ at Mensa Level, has has a really rough ride. This is a clique of parents, teachers and principal. The Principal to start, has no backbone with her teachers. Recently the 4th Grade History Teacher was given an award as Being one of the best history teachers in the area. Yet, my children come home and ask me questions like "Why does our President not have an American Birth Certificate" Glenn Beck is teaching History. Parents are Very Involved which is great. Many teachers are exceptional..especially Roarke and Godwin.

All I can start with is my overwhelming disappointment in this school. Children with special needs are left in the dust because the staffing does not in anyway know how to deal their needs. The staff shuns and treats them as outcasts because of these same disabilities. The principle is negligent in dealing with situations when they arise and always side with teacher even when the teacher is very clearly at fault. The school district is also terrible as they have no interest about the concerns of the parents. If I could turn back time I would have sent my children to this school as they are now dealing with self esteem problems because of the way they were treated. If you are able to send your children to another school especially if they are special needs.

My grandchildren go here and we love this school! The teachers know the children because it is small enough to get to know them. They even know me when i come there. It is well taken care of and the children have lots of encouragement. I have helped out on different events . Most of all the parents like the school and teachers. A very helpful and caring staff!

This is a great school with a wonderful staff and led by a wonderful principal. The school staff is very friendly, the school is quite clean and the custodians take great pride in their work. The teachers are very motivated and excited to teach and it reflects back on the students. The school also has a very active PTO with volunteers that do a great job at making sure all of the needs of the school are met. They don't do your typical fundraisers by making you sell junk you don't need, yet they always come up with fun and exciting ways to raise money and I'm happy to support them because all of their hard work can be seen on the playground, the technology support they give, and the classroom assistance. I'm a proud and happy family member of Hunt Meadows.

Hunt Meadows does an excellent job, and I am extremely impressed with the entire staff and administration. My daughter has attended HMES for five years and the education and opportunities she has been afforded there have been first rate.

I am very devasted with my experience at this school. My children have had numerous problems with bullying, etc. The administration is not very comforting to the children. The principal lacks the skills to resolve issues on a professional level. We have experienced ongoing, unresolved bullying issues. Please speak with your child/children often about this if your child attends this school. The quality of education is good, I can only imagine what it could be if the administration was different.

I wish my child had never entered this school, not only does the school have problems with peer bullying but the some of the staff members I have dealt with are bullies themselves. The principal is a snob and seems to favor the upper class children, and the vice principal and some teachers have the same problems. If you have a child with learning disabilities, add or adhd I suggest you find another school because the staff has little to no tolerance in dealing with these kids. And the school district office isnt much help either, they only side with the school staff no matter what. I am sure that some parents have had a wonderful experience at this school, as some of the reviews have stated, but they must be one of the few that recieve the special treatment.

I have recently left Hunt Meadows last year. And every day I wish I was back there. The teachers are wonderful and so was the principal and vice principal. The curriculum was good and they provided extra curricular programs for everyone. Over all my experience at Hunt Meadows was great!

My son was in the 4K program this past year and I thought it was wonderful. The teachers were great. However, I feel that the vice principal as well as many other staff members have racial issues. I was not pleased at all with some of the things that occured at Open House or at other school events. I have tried to contact Mrs. Tortellot concerning her actions and behavior, but no response! I also felt that if I spoke up about these issues my children would be mistreated. But now, I know exactly who to call the next time there are any concerns, because these are children! no one working with or around children should act like that.

The overall quality of the k4 class is wonderful my son is blossoming into a social bug they have improved his social skills so much; he actually tells me all about his friends and the teachers. This is a great program for small children my little boy loves school he absolutely loves the K-4 teacher and her assistant and they are both wonderful, they have made learning fun to him

I am very disappointed in this school. I have asked for a conference 4times from one teacher and received no response. Now at the end of the year she wants an intervention. The school is not forthcoming with any other services that they offer, such as tutoring.

The building itself is great. The staff is another matter. The principal is rude, seems only intrested in making herself look good to the board. The teachers ignore bulling that is happening in front of them. They refuse to let children sign up with special help classes, unless a doctor has decided that the child has a medical reason for failing. I am removing my child from this school at the end of the year because I think I can homeschool & my child will benefit from this. I seem to care more about my childs education than the staff.

Most of the teachers are great.But i think the school could do more to help children with add and adhd.They need teachers that know how to work with these children.

The teachers,staff & principal are wonderful. Everyone is treated like family. The only concern I have is diversity. I would love to see more children of all ethnicities.
