I highly recommend this particular elementary school within the HSE school district. Led by the principal and some very good teachers, there is a strong commitment to academic excellence. The principal is very involved and level-headed, listening to concerns and working as a bridge between parents and teachers. The parents are very involved and help to make the school a success. I had a better experience here than at another school my children had been at briefly within the HSE district.
