There are a few good teachers but most of the good teachers have left. The school has a very negative feel, the teachers don't want to be there and neither do the students! Parent involvement is great and actually a must...the PTA runs the school. If you volunteer then your child will be in the best teachers' classes!
Hedgcoxe is a warm and family friendly environment. The students are happy and learning. The principal is invested in each student and easy to interact with. The teachers are approachable and creative.
Hedgcoxe Elementary School is one of the jewels in our neighborhood. When we looked for a home to live in, the schools are one of the prime factors on which we base our selections. The Americana that exists where your kids receive a strong education in a safe and caring environment definitely exists at Hedgcoxe. We are proud of our teachers, administrators and staff there, as well as the PTA. Yes, it can be true that "Class assignment is like playing yearly Russian roulette" but that exists in all the schools I know. I would not count that as unique or strike against my kids school. Sending your kid to Hedgecoxe can limit that possibility because they have many many more great teachers.
Excellent school with the wonderful principal and staff .Very friendly and family oriented .Very experienced and knowledgeable teachers .Good programs for students .Parents are very welcomed to participate in different activities .My son loves the school ,principal and his teacher a lot.
Excellent school community including all staff, students and families. Parents talk about feeling welcome and comfortable participating in the school and learning process. Excellent staff to work with.
My child attended this school for several years. Our family found joy in many kind teachers and the generally warm and welcoming community. Overall, we were disappointed with the lack of principal's leadership. We found the leaders of the school to be well versed in suburban enthusiasm and fun, but lacking in professionalism and maturity. Our focus for our child is a strong educational background. You may be able to raise a generally happy, media and pop culture-centered child at Hedgecoxe; but the school will not provide a solid educational training.
