I am overall unimpressed with this school and more specifically the principal. My son after several years at this school still cannot read at a reasonable level. They continue to make accusations of abuse etc. For lack of better wording over lolly coddle my child to a point where he is beyond behind in maturity. Myself along with a few other parents personally feel this school should be thoroughly evaluated and the principal most certainly should be replaced with someone more competent.

Not a bad school. The age of the school is starting too show. The teachers we have show a lot of dedication and effort, I really appreciate that. Being a teacher is a tough job but rewarding job. I see a couple of negative comments on bullying.....The fact is Huntley has ZERO tolerance and in fact, they probably suspend kids faster than most schools (A little too fast if you ask me). But, if it is your expectation that any signs of children not getting along should result in immediate expulsion and discounting a child forever over the first or second or even third issue.....then not only is this school not for you, you should home school your child.

Most of the staff is good! The leadership is awful. Students are not held accountable for their actions by the administration. The PTO board is a joke!! The current PTO board either works at the school currently or are looking to get into the district. Very unorganized school! It has really gone down hill since the new principal took over 3 years ago!

Sadly, Bullying is very much an issue at Huntley. There has been a track record of incidents from one student in particular. Unfortunately, the mentality of the administration is to brush it under the carpet. Additionally, the communication has been disappointing. While the schools policy is to inform parents after every violent situation, they do not follow their own rule. The impression I get is that "leadership by example" isn't applicable, or a "do as I say, not as I do" mentality is best. Our child enjoys his friends and the teachers we've had have been responsive. They do well with what they've been given and I commend them for providing the students the attention they need. My advice to parents researching area schools, make Huntley a second or third choice.

If you have a child that is low-average intelligence this school is a fine fit. I, however, have excelerated children whos needs are not being met. There is a TAG program that meets once a week for half a day-only for half a year though. So my child only gets to be challenged for half of the year. Yet they have money to employee many 1:1 aids for emotionally challenged children. Most of the teachers here though are wonderful. They try hard despite the limited resources and help. The principal is not very good. She seems overwhelmed and seems to have limited knowledge of how to run a school. Parent involvement seems to be the same 2 dozen parents who volunteer throughout the school. I am one of those parents and do feel very welcome and appreciated by the teachers and staff.

This is a great school with excellent teachers. Unfortunately bullying is a problem in every school and I think Huntley handles things well.

My school does not provide well for students or staff. Most days the staff run out of supplies or resources for the kids. Would not recommend school.

We had 3 children attend Huntley School. They had amazing experiences. The staff and principal were extremely dedicated, spending numerous hours beyond the school day to enhance their educational experience. The guidance counselor goes above and beyond to address all issues. Yes, he is on the playground daily to assist students as they learn socially. Issues were always addressed appropriately.

My son has special needs, and his progress came to a screeching halt while attending this school. The teachers did little to individualize his education to meet his needs. They were also very disorganized, and important paperwork would not be sent home the majority of the time. A lot of bullying goes on in this school, and little is done to address it. My son now attends another area school that has been wonderful with him. He is now making great progress.
