My son in in kindergarten this year. We are looking for a bigger place to live and are trying to figure out how to keep him here. He absolutely loves it and thrives here.

Hart Elementary is the worst school ever!! Since my kids started this school last year in Oct 2010 in the third week they didn't know how to evaluate my kid's as they where in program ESL. They have change my kids more than 2 time in the same month because they didn't know where to put them because of their language speaking. No follow up with the materials given to them. Every time they come from school they bring more homework to do at home than they do in school and on top of that, they don't understand a nothing they bring home. So we then got to be teachers at home for them and sometime be late to work or not go to work at all because they have test the other day about the material send home. This is not right. This is wrong. Now they have send a letter to parents about over 3 years over 50 to 60% of the students not passing the task test in this school and now they want parents to take action to move them if we wish to another school district. This is unacceptable. I'm Very disappointed....

This is a clean,nice school. The only thing that is pretty weird is that there is alot of potables because of the high number of students/teachers. Sometimes you may have to walk a block to get to lunch,and other classes.
