Hunt is led by a totalitarian principal that focuses solely on control. The environment is cold and mechanical. Teachers are wonderful but are limited by total control of the principal. This is not an environment that fosters and supports a positive learning environment.

Being a military family, my son has been to 4 schools in his 5 years of education. This school has been the best by far. The environment is friendly and positive. The staff is inviting and encouraging. They do a great job of communicating with families and have already had several events. The principal is easy to talk to an is very knowledgeable. I know that my child is well taken care of during the day and is engaged in learning. This is so important especially to an overprotective mom with a background in education. I am very pleased with this school and it's staff.

Hunt elementary is lead by a very well knowledge principle who is very involved in her students well being in both the classroom but also what happens beyond the 4 walls. Our children are blessed to have a wonderful amount of loving and caring teachers to guide and strengthen them. Thank you Hunt elementary, you are truly a first rate education system!

I am very happy to send my daughter to Hunt . My experience with the teachers and Administration have been positive. I have had excellent communication with her teachers, often through email, and always receive a response. I like the district's emphasis on College as just being a part of the plan and a given. I am excited for my daughter to have the same class for 2nd grade as 1st to make the transition smooth and her experience positive. This foundation can make or break a student's educational experience and these bricks have been solid. My only wish (and this may be for all schools) Is that the PTA had a bit more "T" involvement. I don't see staff at PTA events.

Hunt Elementary was a great school for our two boys, who went from KG through 6th Grade. Great, caring teachers and many opportunities for parent volunteers, great PTSA. Had a lot of admin. changes in the past, but a great Administration there now. They well prepared our boys for Jr High.

The music program is great. Some teachers are overfocused on worksheets and tests, instead of hands-on learning. Art is not emphasized after first grade. Gifted students need help being challenged more here. Staff is friendly and helpful. Parent involvement is not high (2-3 parents per classroom usually).

The staff and prinicple at Hunt Elementary school are professional, caring, and have a heart for the kids they teach. My daughter has felt welcome for the moment she walked into the school. Her teacher immediately recognized her highly capable intellect and suggested testing her for the high capable program. The parents in the school are incredibly active which affords the kids many opportunities. We love Hunt!

This school has gone down hill! I think the teachers and staff they have currently brought into this school are only there to recieve their weekly paychecks. Also, there are too many students per teachers. The importance of teaching our children has been thrown out the window, and it shows when we have some of the lowest WASL scores in our area.

The Kindergarten teachers are wonderful. The information that these children learn from reading to math far exceeds anything I ever learned at this age. I have been extremely impressed with this school so far and its teaching staff.
