This is a wonderful school! It is a relatively small school (about 400 kids in all grades), so the teachers and staff really get to know each child. There is a great sense of community with lots of parent involvement, family nights, and a Watch Dog program where dads and granddads help in the building each day. The teachers are top-notch; they incorporate many Montessori teaching methods and they do their best to help each child learn at his/her own pace. They have quality music, PE, and technology lessons. We chose to live here because of all the recommendations we got for the Hickory Schools and I am so glad we did! Highly recommend!

I love this school. I have 5kids that currently attend here, and they all love their teachers so much they cried when the school year ended.

H.E.S. is a dream school! My son has attended H.E.S. for three years and has had three outstanding, professional and caring teachers who have instilled in him genuine academic curiosity as well as fostered a love of and excitement for learning. The electives teachers (particularly P.E.) are also highly creative and amaze me with the lessons/ activities that they plan for my son's class. The administration and PTA also work diligently and succinctly in order to create and maintain high standards and fun activities for the students.

Awesome staff at this school! My daughter was/is struggling in the first grade and Mrs. Pinello on down have been nothing if not encouraging and helpful in reaching a goal to get her on track to graduate to second grade! Communication is top notch and the classroom environment perfect! If you are enrolling your child in this school, they are in good hands!

I have 3 children in the Hickory School system and I do feel that they get an exceptional education here. However, Hickory is very expensive by way of extracirricular activities. Last year I spent $3000 for my daughter to cheer

I am a former student of Hickory Elementary. My father was in the Navy, so I have been to many different schools. Hickory, honestly, was the best schooling I received from either coast until college. I was in the G.A.T.E. program and was challenge well enough that I learned a good deal more in 3rd and 4th than several other grades combined. This is a thank you as well as a note of praise for an institution that does more than well for its students and families.

I think this school is one of the best in this area. I have had my child in two of the private schools in this area ( claiming to be the best)and he has learned more at Hickory than either of those schools. Parents are very involved and the teachers are great. They are very good with keeping one on one with the children as well as with the parents.
