All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

I had problem after problem, meetings with teachers, principle, etc. Trying to solve the issues my child was having there, to no avail! I was determined to sell our home and get them into another district! My youngest that I had so many problems attending Hodges when asking her what is going on and why all the behavior problems she continuously told me that they were very mean to her and the teachers taught the same thing over and over and had already new the material that is why she would talk, ..etc to occupy their time while in class, like I said I tried to tell them over and over with no avail, the last conflict is when they requested me to have her tested for special education! This is actually when the transfer took place out of HODGES!! Now with her attending a new district we have not had any problems with behavior and she was state tested and she scored so high on the state test she doubled the average child on the charts, to add she also won the spelling bee this year for entire grade level plus last year in the 3rd she was reading on a 7th grade school level......HODGES WANTED HER TESTED FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION...THIS IS HODGES AND I WAS SURPRISED THE GOT A 5 OUT OF 10...

Our family is now entering into the third generation at Ed Hodges. It has wonderful teachers, principal and staff that care about their students. Recent remodeling has made it an even better learning facility. Have one gifted child and one with dyslexia, they both receive all the tools they need to succeed.

This is a good school. A lot of the teachers are very involve with the subjects/students that the teach. I feel the Teachers/Principals are there for the love of their job and the students they instruct on a daily basis.
