Hello my school name is Grace E Hardeman Elementary. I am a proud grandfather of a third grader and my experience working with the school facility and staff as a volunteer has been outstanding. I am a member of the WATCHDOGS (Dads of Great Students) and I personally see the inner working of the school and the school spirit within. Go Roadrunners........... Pastor Art Bullis

We are very happy with this school. My daughter is in 5th grade and this year for her has been great. She is very happy to go to school every day, she has straight A's and her teacher has really good comunication with me. She emails me about homework, tests, and so on. There are great things about this school but they are not very strict. I think the teachers should have more dicipline with bad behavior.

My daughter went to Grace E Hardeman and now my grandchildren are fortunate to attend this campus. The principal and faculty have been an asset to our community. The teachers are great, very personable, and are always available to assist you with any of your concerns.

Hardeman elementary is a fantastic school as long as you have an average student. As with most large schools & districts kids get lost in the shuffle. I feel both my slower learner & my academic achiever was one of those kids. The achiever attended Hardeman from K-4th was only challenged 1 year and on the other hand my slower learner was never given the extra help he needed. We were told since he made good enough grades to pass that there was nothing they could do. He had to be failing or unable to read before he could quailfy for tutoring. I rate this school based on if your student is average.

I am very happy with Gracde E Hardeman School. My daughter Pat is one of the re-zoned kids and she is so happy about her transition and it has been so smooth and easy. Mr Ellis and his staff are doing an excellent job for our kids. It is like a big family. Marisel Brant
