My kids started summer school at Hathaway. I would not recommend any parent that school for safety reasons. My son was swung really high on a swing by a recess aid and flew out of the swing and landed on his back. He hurt his back, head and fingertips. She asked if he was okay to which he replied that he was not sure, at which point she proceeded to take him to the school bus to go home. She did not at any point teach him down to the nurses office to make sure that he will be okay and no one even notify the parents of the fall. In my opinion this is neglect. If a child tells you after a high fall that he's not sure if he's okay they should have at the very least notified the parents. I am still unable to get a call back from anybody at the school with an explanation. Because of this I will be taking him out of that school immediately. He came home with a bruise back complaining of back pain. Our regular school is Gause and we never have any problems, they contact you even for a minute scratch. I don't feel that the school should stop following proper protocol just because it is summer school, it is still a government facility that deals with small children. Very disappointed.....

Hathaway has been a great school for our son. He has learning disabilities that were brought to our attention by a teacher which led to diagnosis and the help that he needed. We have had consistent support and great encouragement by the staff of this school. My son is happy and confident and I attribute much of this to the care and excellent teaching he has received.

Hathaway has been one of the greatest experiences for not only my daughter but for myself. For the first time i did'nt have to get up and yell for her to wake up and get ready for school she got up got ready and was so excited everyday to go to school she loved it. That meant alot to me that my child was getting all that she could out of school that she dreaded breaks early releases and doctor appts she would argue with me just to stay at school .... I am so sad that we had to move because she is unsatisfied with her new school she doesn't even want to wake up to go.. i miss this school the best school ever..she misses her teacher

My daughter attended Hathaway K through 5, and my son is currently enrolled here. Hathaway provides a caring and nurturing learning environment for all of its students. I can't say enough about the teachers, principal and front office staff.

This is really a topnotch school. Caring professional teachers and aides, incredible front office and cafeteria staff, plus an amazing principal with over twenty years teaching experience herself. Very open to parent involvement. I have taught for almost twenty years and this is the first school where I feel things are student-centered.

Hathaway School in my opinion is a Great School. The teachers really care, the principal is out there among her students getting their input, she is always available for parents. If there are any problems Laura Bolt does her best to get both sides of the situation and to address the matter in a fair way. Parent participation is excellent, and there is a great turnout of parents getting involved in the activities and day to day needs of the students. My granddaughters go to this school and compared to the schools in California(that's all I can compare to)this school is like Harvard compared to Podunk.

My daughter's kindergarten and 1st grade years at Hathaway were both positive experiences. Her teachers were wonderful with her which helped a lot with her learning progress. Their reading program was also very helpful, and she learned really well in math and science. I would really like to see more extracurricular activites and progams offererd through the school.

Nice school, however the current principal makes no attempt to get to know parents and students. I am not impressed with her p.r. skills. they need much improvement.

Very impressed with Hathaway's after school program. I have a 2nd grader who is disappointed when it's time to go home. Good job to the employee's in the after school program.
