HES has been the best elementary school that I could hope for my 3 children. We have developed an amazing relationship with the principal (Mr. Wilder is the BEST EVER as my kids often say) as well as many teachers and staff members from Kindergarten through 5th grade. My kids love going to school everyday. The school is always clean, they keep parents involved and informed, and the environment overall is very pleasant.
