    Heim Elementary is probably one of the best elementaries in the nation. We are a military family and move more than the average family. I have children in the 1st and 3d grades at this school. The teachers are extraordinary. There is a consistant and high level offering of music and art. My kindergartener learned to draw and color like Monet! My third grader sings in the chorus which is a joy to listen to. The PTA offers wonderful after school clubs that include gardening scrapbooking pilates sewing and so many more I can't list them all. We have been truly blessed by the educational community here. In fact as we move again this summer I am very concerned for my new kindergartener. I pray we can find a school as loving and as academically excellent as this one. Heim also won the national PTA parent involvement award in 2004.
