The teachers and administrators are always welcoming at this school. We put our home search on hold because my youngest did not want to leave. He wanted the "same teachers" his brother had. He remembered how his brother would race home gleaming to share all the great experiences he'd had that day. Everyone is always super positive and willing to assist in any manner. Unfortunately there aren't any sports offered at the school but because of its close proximity to the local parks and YMCA there are always opportunities.

All of my three children got their headstart at HEC. The oldest one finished college with a double major in Business Management/Business Marketing, the middle one is currently in college with a major in health physics and has been on hte President's list, and the youngest one is a first grader at this school, hopefully to be accepted in the 'gifted' program. But regardless, I feel my kids where educated in the best school district and where nurtured in a most positive way. They had fun while being educated and loved their teachers. A teacher's hug goes a long way sometimes! I would recommend this school to anybody. The ladies in the front office are a bit grumpy at times though. :-)

I am the mother of two students who attend this school. The assistant principal is 'totally' hands on. He was able to see the individual needs of my son and 'hand pick' the best teacher for him. This has been such an amazing year compared to last year. Not that the teacher was unqualified she just 'didn't' fit with my child.

I am a Grandmother of a K-5 student this school has been so awesome to him and our family, In Nov2008 he was in the Hospital having surgery on his right arm because he broke both bones and his elbow, I will never forget Dallas coming back from surgery and the first thing he saw in his room was a balloon,flowers and a bear from his school he lit up like a light bulb, He asked where did this come from and we read the card and it was from the staff from HE Corley, When Dallas came home from the hospital his Teacher Mrs. Westmoreland/Snipes and her Husband came to the home to check on him and brought thing to him from his class mates, There is not to many schools out there that will do this and i am so glad my Grandson is in the top school :)

My daughter has been at H.E. Corley since Aug. 2005. Everyone helped her transition to her new school since we had moved from another town. This was a big relief for us. Everyone is so nice and willing to help each other to make a better learning enviroment. This is her last year at H.E. Corley and we will never forget this school.

Good installation, small classes, good teachers; a few good ones have been leaving however. The school subscribes to community property over individual property which may be classroom security/storage issue. Ultimately the responsibility is the parents to see to it their students get educated. For the time my child has attended HEC most parents have taken that responsibility seriously with their child, enhancing the classroom environment & making the job of the teacher easier. Lately however, that has been changing. This was a great school, now I rate it a good school, but that is creeping to a change

My daughter is nearing completion of 2nd grade, and her 3rd year at HEC (K,1,2). We have been consistently happy with her teachers and the students. HEC is primarily feed by the New Friarsgate and Waterford subdivisions, plus some houses inbetween. The vast majority of the residents are solid working families who care about their children, their school and their community.

Many school are given 5's, but I view 5 as being perfect. The school's principal loves children and has an open-door policy for parents. The teachers are committed to and love their students. The parental-involvement is growing every year and is evident in every area of the school. The school has recently undergone significant security upgrades to keep all the students in their care safe all the time. It was very important to me to find a great school as I was coming from an incredible private school out-of-state. This is a great school.
