Caring, committed, capable, and competent faculty and staff. Many of the teachers live in the area and are personally invested in the community. This is our third year at the school. We moved from another NEISD school-which we loved, but Hardy Oak has superseded it in many ways. One of the biggest factors is the level of parent involvement. Hardy Oak has many volunteers. Programs run better, have more funding, have more helpers, which helps everyone. Many hands make light work and success breeds success; lots of successful parents raising successful children helping successful teachers to make a successful school. It is a community effort.
The GT program is amazing. The kids do not go for an hour a week as mentioned in a previous post. They go all day once a week. It's amazing what all they learn with Mrs. W! Overall, this school is excellent. I've never seen more caring teachers and staff.
Teachers and staff are the first to bully the children. Kids development is completely ignored. GT program in Texas in general is a joke. One hour once a week? Come on, really? Don't even get me started on cliques... my kids feel that they don't fit in. Paid so much to move here to now have to pay for private school. What a waste.
