We have the Best teachers and Best Principle in the world. I have never saw an more open door policy than this school has. I can get intouch with either teacher or principle at anytime day or night! Michael Kimbro is one of the most caring teachers for his students I have ever saw. He really cares! He gets on their level to see where they are and where he can help them to succeed like the other peers! I am blessed to have my child attend this school!

I have a son in HES and he is ADHD. This school has gone out of its way to help him adapt to having his condition and still being able to perform with excellence in school. The teachers and staff have been excellent with him as well as the principal. Her level of commitment and passion for the students is unbelievable.
