I have 4 children attending R.F.H. this year 2 in Kindergarten, 1 in 1st, and 1 in 3rd grade. I have been more than amazed by the 1-on-1 relationship between each and every student , teacher, and principal. I can only imagine how difficult it can be to educate a room of 18-22 children and keep them all on the right track. With our 8 yr old learning was never a challenge, she has always been one of those who just gets it the 1st time around. However with my 6 yr old (1st grader) she has always been the entertainer, dancer, our little firecracker, and learning is more of a challenge. In school she is the exact opposite, she is quiet, has had a hard time finishing EVERYTHING. She spends more time perfecting everything from coloring to writing and even reading the short 3 word sentences 1 mess up sends her back 2 the very beginning till she gets it right (she gets all of that from her mom) she never completes anything. So when she started struggling to stay caught-up so Robert F. Hunt had assigned an older lady to sit down and work 1-on-1 with our daughter. They've ALWAYS went above & beyond their call of duty & have taken education to a whole new level!

Both of my children have attended this school from the start. The teachers, office and principal are a Class Act in my book. The parents are welcome and there is great communication between parents and teachers. Mr. Kilpatrick (the principal) greets the kids each morning upon arrival. It is so important that our young children are comfortable starting their acedemic career and Robert F. Hunt definately provides that!

Love this school!!! Love the Principal!!! Love the staff!!! Im just sorry I can not afford for my child to go there anymore. they are so good that the bord had to change the prices of the out of district fee or transfer fees as you call it. My daughter went to Gilmer elem. and we did not like that school at all. we transfered her to Diana Elem. and she just loves it unfortunatly we do not have the money to keep sending her there. But we just love it everyone is so nice and helpful and Mr kilpatrick is great he is there every morning and greating the kids and when they go home he is there also. Great schoo great education. Going to miss you all next year.

Both of my children have been students on this campus, and I would not have had them anywhere else. The staff has been there for years with very little turnover. The school has been exemplary almost every year for more than a decade. The academic expectations are far away and higher than most schools. There are always activities for the kids at every grade level, and they stay busy.The atmosphere is even better now that they are in a brand new facility.

We moved from another state this school year and transferred our 1st grader to Robert F. Hunt Elementary. The class is academically challenging for our child, which had been difficult in the past. The teachers, aides and other support personnel seem to geniunely care about the students. And, the principal is wonderful to work with.
