Highland Springs Elementary School1

My son is not happy at this school. We moved to the area, so we had to attend this school for zoning reasons. The reason why I give this school a bad review is because of the students. This school has a major behavioral problem. My child is a very high excelling student, and the behavioral issues from other students is very frustating for him. He enjoys his teacher, just the behavior from his peers. Not a lot of activities for students to be involved in either.
My son had a situation with another boy bothering him on the bus. I was very concerned making sure he wasn't being bullied so I called the Principal. The following day the Principal Mr Hochman rode the entire bus route and my son problem solved. Highland Springs has a dedicated Principal !!!!
My daughter has been in Highland Springs sincer starting school. She is now going to the fourth grade. Although she may not be returning this year, I will never forget the care she recieved while going there. They stressed an all around education, including the importance of good character. I want to send a special thank you to Mrs. McClannahan, fourth grade teacher, and friend to me and my daughter. Thanks for all that you do, and thank You Highland Springs Elementary !
My daughter is continuing to excell in her education at Highland Springs Elemantary. She had some difficulty with reading and her 2nd grade teacher helped us get the needed info and much needed support to make sure she will keep up with her peers in the future. I greatly appreciate Mrs.Speller.
Highland Springs Elementary School is an excellent and very educational school. My daughter has been attending there going on her 3rd year and every year so far has been great and I hope that this trend continues has she heads forward on becoming a great student through the Henrico County School System. To all of the staff at Highland Springs, thanks for all of your patience with the children and their parents; your work is exceptional.
