This school is amazing. Yes teachers can be strict, but we don''t realize that when they do it helps us students out a lot. At Hidenwood every day teachers and students will get smarter, and smarter. I love our new principle Mr. Andrew Perry e is very nice, but do the wrong thing you will have warnings but you will also have talks. At Hidenwood safety is important, that''s why you have to listen carefully and follow the rules. We do a lot of fun activities here and the teachers make it better. I love my Teacher Ms.Baker because if you don''t know anything she will take the time to break it down for you so you will get a high score. This is why I highly Recommend your child coming to this school. P.S we have tag and E.D classes so no one will be left out or behind and everyone has friends.
