School Reviews

5  
Hunt Elementary is an excellent school lead by a fantastic principal. Mrs. Engleking has high expectations for both her teachers and the students. Reading is highly encouraged at all times. The Plano ISD curriculum challenges students to think at higher levels and encourages high performance by all students. The school is relatively new, having opened in 2005. Parents are welcomed with open arms and the school is very open in their communications and use of volunteers. Parents are highly involved in all areas of the school. Watch Dog Dads program is a wonderful way for Dads and Grandads to get involved one day a year in the school. You won't be disappointed in this school!
