Hobble Creek Elementary is an excellent school. Two of my children have attended HCE and I love it! HCE offers extracurricular Chess Club, Jump Club, Choir and Orchestra. It is part of the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts program. There is a movement/dance teacher in residence full-time all year. HCE also has visiting artists instruct students in a variety of visual arts. HCE has a gifted instructor on-site every day for 3 hrs. Gifted students participate in plays, higher level reasoning activities, photography, and debate (just to name a few!) Grade level enrichment activities take place in math on every grade level. The PTA is well organized and does much to serve the school. Parents are highly involved at Hobble Creek. This is an A++ school in my opinion.
