My son started here this year after having a bullying issue at a different elementary school. He enjoys this school much more and when he first got there we thought the bullying had started again but we talked with his teachers and the principal and it stopped. We are happy with the school and knowing he is safe is great.
I can't say much about the whole school but I can definitely give a 5 star to Ms Stiaert. I still cannot spell her name but she was a great 2nd grade teacher for my son.
Just finished reading the "stats" on LHE. Although I pulled my children due to the lack of leadership and management of staff and students I can tell you that in the past several years my children attended they NEVER had 16 students in a classroom! There were always at least 25 if not close to 30. Either these stats are just plain wrong or they are counting something other than regular classrooms with regular classroom teachers.
Well, being very familiar with Lydia Hawk elementary school and having gone their myself as a young child. When we moved back to this area and my children started attending school here, I would say that the school seems to have a new enthusiasm and better identity of itself. The children that attend are from a very diverse background and MOST of the staff are very friendly. For the most part I would say this school is going in a great direction and if all teachers could teach like Ms. Rottle all our schools would be doing way better :o)
Although I was pleased with about half of the teachers at this school, the principal is another story. He was not helpful with anything, my son is gifted and Mr. Harrington told me he doesn't have room in his school for my son. So I did what any parent would do, I removed all 3 of my children and went accross town to a better school where they care about their students future.
My daughter is in the 6th grade her teachers are Mr. Jones and Mr Hashimoto. She is thriving in their class learning so much! Mr. Hashimoto gives out Hashimoto dollars to the children that gives them an incentive to learn more and use better english when speaking. My daughter will diffinitely be prepared to go to middle school next year because of her wonderful teachers!!!!
My grandson attends Lydia Hawk Elementary, and is more than a hand full for anyone! He is 5 years old and very intelligent, but also has behavior issues. He has probably pulled more stunts than anyone else has ever done at Lydia Hawk. However, from the principal , the teachers, the assistants, to the conselors, I could not have asked for a better setting, while we tried to get a diagnosis. Their patience, supportive attitudes, and actions, and awesome efforts have been more than I would have thought possible!Any parent/guardian who sends their child to Lydia Hawk could not have made a better choice, when looking for educators who really care about the children they serve. This is a very lucky community indeed
We have been completely happy with our daughter's experience at Lydia Hawk - she has had wonderful teachers. The school makes it very easy to be involved. Very Friendly, welcoming to the whole family.
I am pleased with certain aspects of Lydia Hawk. The student body is very diverse, which I like. The teachers are enthusiastic and friendly for the most part. However, I wish there were more support for gifted students and that organized sports were available.
My children have gone to Lydia Hawk ever since pre- school. I am so happy that my children have had a opportunity to be a part of the school. My children are always encouraged to do there best and they have postive wonderful teachers. Mrs. Quinn,the principal,is a a lovely principal and she seems to know all the children by there first names. I will be sad when my children have to leave. Lydia Hawk is a school where my children can grow and flourish in a positive environment.
