My son is in his second year at HSE. He has received more help at this school tha his previous schools. This schools has Reading, Math, ESL, and Sped Interventionists. I disagree with previous revviews about lack of support for students. I also disagree with reviews about lack of specials as he has Art, Music, Computer, Turkish and Spanish classes and is only in the fourth grade. There are also many clubs after school that he can participate in as well as an afterschool day care. The school is a little over 900 students and has a Principal as well as three Assistant Principals. Discipline is handled fairly and in a very timely manner. The school report card from TEA is great! I deefintely recommend this school! It has the benefits of a private school for FREE!

My daughter was only white student in the whole class and only 3 percent is white for entire school not 57 percent like they stated before I bought a house here in the district

Horrific experience! Uniforms are required at this school and I support that philosophy. However, on "free dress day", my granddaughter (who wears size 7 pants and is in the first grade), and who was wearing a pair of tights with a long top over it, was forced to change into a pair of size 4 uniform pants because the tights were deemed to be non compliant with the dress code. She had to stand in class the entire day and when I picked her up, she was in tears and her skin was chaffed. Apparently this was a more acceptable option to the school nuts, the first grade home room teacher, and the principal. Very unreasonable "professionals" at this school. Additionally, there are are few electives and enjoyable activities for the children (no theater arts, minima music, minimal art programs). Classrooms have about 32 students per teacher and parents are expected to do a lot of the teaching at home.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Once again, the parent does the real teaching. Teachers appear to just print off homework pages from the Internet and expect you. As the parent to do the teaching.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
My third grader spends at least three hours each night on homework. Every evening she ends the day with tears and frustration. Discussing this with the teacher will only mean more hardship at the school for your child. Your child WILL be bullied if you confront a teacher.
