There are some exceptional teachers at HPES (Kindergarten, Music, Library, one 3rd grade teacher, one 4th grade teacher, & one 6th grade teacher). There are also some exceptionally poor teachers at HPES, which I will not name. We had issues with 3 consecutive years teachers. One of my kids cried the first week of school that he/she hated school & hated the teacher & my kid was only 7 or 8 at the time. There is a lack of communication between home & classroom. Disruptive kids & special needs kids took too much time away from the classroom as a whole. Poor math & reading programs & science needs to be beefed up. Seems to be quite a few families who take their kids out of HPES to home school during 5th grade (based on history & current year). The environment as a whole is poor. Teacher attitudes are not good & at times reflect in the classroom with the kids as well as with the parents. Although HPES talks about parent involvement, they don't really like the involvement. Parents ask too many questions that administration & teachers can't answer. There is a new principal this year. Hopefully she can make some great changes. I can't wait for my child to be done with HPES.

Some of the teachers are exceptional-specifically those in 3rd/4/6th grade and the art and library teacher. Actually, the gym teacher is also very good. Others are uninspired and rely too heavily on worksheets to fill the time.

This school has made some huge changes this year, including a new principal and some new teachers. It is my experience that the Kindergarten teachers are excellent and the Third grade teachers are great. This year we welcomed two new first grade teachers. The art program is phenomenal and there is a new gym teacher. Our school nurse was just awarded best in the state. This year has been great for my family but we have been disappointed the last couple of years.

This school has undergone many changes over the past few years. This year has undergone many changes and is proving to be a very good school at least from a parents point of view.
