I would definitely have to agree with the last parent. I am a parent of a kindergartener who truly enjoys being a HUSKY. As an administrator in an elementary school, i am delighted to have my girls call HFES home!

What a phenomenal school with caring teachers and administration. My kindergartener enjoys going to school each day. As an educator, I am ecstatic about having my children call HFES home.

I really loved this school. Miss Wilkes and Miss Fellows were wonderful with my kids. Miss Wilkes helped my son to become a better student. Wonderful teachers.

Saw the comment about Mrs. Fellows and I have to concur. My son has her this year too. We just love her. She is very connected with her students and my son with his attention troubles is thriving well in her classroom. HFES has so many positives to offer to South Riding. Award winning teachers is one of them!

This school is outstanding when it comes to classroom teachers and faculty. My kids have had wonderful teachers, year after year, and the specialists are great as well. I am particularly impressed with the PTA and the Library Program.

Love this school. Great PTA. Involved families and community! Teachers are fabulous. My 7 year old is reading at a 3rd grade level!

The principal is a very strong leader and runs a tight ship. Most of the teachers I have had experience with are absolutely wonderful, though I think a few could be more creative in their approach. The facility, including the library and computer lab are excellent Mr. Nelson, Ms. Payne, Ms. Gusti come to mind as outstanding teachers. Last year the office staff seemed to be more frendly to some people than others, but this seems to have changed for the better this year, perhaps someone mentioned it. Parental involvement is strong.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
