    Hutchinson is a great school. I have had other children and grandchildren graduate from this school. I am very pleased with the education they received while they were there. I think elementary school has a lot to do with a child's success in life. I am very proud of my children and grandchildren who who attended Hutchinson. I am also pleased with the interaction the staff and children display. Keep up the good work Hutchinson!

    I think this is an excellent school. This is a year round school. My son attended Hutchinson for 7 years from pre-k - 5th grade. This school has teachers and a prinicipal that really care about the success of your students. It is like a big family atmosphere. He graduated this year and is going to middle school so we will really miss the school.

    Although I am not enthused about the year round schedule I absolutely love the school and the teachers. There is true concern about the children's academic success and their well-being. I have had 2 children to complete the school and have 2 remaining (3rd and 5th).

    The academics at Hutchinson is awesome. My daughter is a 2nd grader and she is in the challenge and a gifted student. The teachers and staff take time out with each individual when possible and needed
