Hawkins Mill is on the rise, and continues to move students up! Definitely the best school in Frayser, possibly the best in Memphis. Test scores have risen over the last two years, under the direction of the awesome, new principal, Mr. Antonio Harvey. Teachers are dedicated to helping students and Mr. Harvey dishes out tough love to keep students focused on academics, as well as help them develop into productive citizens. The counselor, Mr. Williams, helps students and parents with anything they need: counseling, school supplies, food, clothing, job applications, and anything else imaginable! I disagree with this site's "1 out of 10" rating. Go to Hawkins Mill and see for yourself, or visit my webpage at www.http://finneyl.weebly.com/ and see what we do every day! Follow us on Twitter (@HMEhawks) and Instagram (hmehawks) to see more! We might just be the best kept secret in Frayser.
We have many Level 4 and Level 5 (out of 5)teachers in our building, and test scores are rising, which shows student growth. 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades performed at Level 5 (out of 5) TVAAS growth on TCAP last year. Proof positive!
Besides the programs the counselor has, students are guided daily, with positive reinforcements, to strive for excellence. Issues that do arise are handled quickly and fairly to ensure that students know the expectations for a Hawkins Mill Student.
