The teachers are dedicated!


Posted December 20, 2004

Although not a parent of a Hidden Cove student, I am a former HC educator. I have to say that the parent comments that I read in this review area are right on. Hidden Cove provides it's students a multitude of diverse learning experiences. What really helps is that everyone is involved with the students from the custodial staff through the administration. The parents that I encountered while there were wonderful. They are really very involved in the school and in their children's lives. Keep up the good work Hidden Cove!

Hidden Cove is an awesome school. The school is very well maintained. Beautiful flowers and landscapes. It is not too big nor is it small. Walking in to Hidden Cove you can always expect to be welcomed with a smile. The teachers and staff reach the children on a professional level as well as a personal level. Learning is fun for the children. Teachers some how know exactly which child needs what attention. Many schools don't get to do the extra extracurricular activities that our children do here. Science fairs, talent shows, field days, etc. The children as well as the parents join in on the fun. Thanks Hidden Cove. You are our not so hidden treasure!
