I am adding to my prior post in May of 2006. Now my children will enter grades 1 and 4 in the fall. I am so happy with this school. My children are happy and have grown immensely with the opportunities the school presents. The new principal Carrie Glenn is very refreshing. She is very open to and satisfactorily addresses my concerns as a parent has strict safety measures and a lively spirit. The curriculum challenges and drives students yet they offer fun activities to keep students engaged and make learning enjoyable. Maria Clavin (music) Donya Kane (art)----extraordinary! What great effort ! The children and parents love the process and products of their work. Arts are appreciated. My children are great readers but never look forward to library. Improvements are needed. To give credit to exceptional teachers I know-P.Sweitzer J.Lusk M.Robinson L. McLoughlin M.Clavin D.Kane. Thank you!

The building itself is old and outdated but clean and well maintained. Most teachers are quite wonderful and welcome parent involvement. The classrooms are 'open' meaning no closed doors but the kids get accustomed to it and everyone learns to respect their next door neighbors. Ms. Clavin the music director is loved by all the kids and they put on the best shows! The kids shine! My three boys all did academically well and are all honor roll students at Wamsutta now. I have one more child now in the 4th grade. The principal of 25 years just retired and the new one is enthusiatic with fresh ideas. My experience with Hyman Fine was a positive one. All the teachers are wonderful but if you can get your child in Mrs. Lusk's class it's sure to be one of your child's best learning experiences ever. High marks for Hyman Fine.
My child has attended Hyman Fine for K and first grade so I am limited in my assesments. She and I have had many very positive experiences. A new principal enters in Fall of 2006. The teachers I've communicated with have all been very welcoming about any concerns to promote successful relations and success for my child. They are very child-friendly and work diligently so students will feel happy secure and successful in learning. The school honors the importance of the arts and PE through classes and extra-curricular events. Weekly computer class is also part of the curriculum. The school has a very active PTO that draws great involvement and money to add many beneficial items to enhance education. The school is excellent about informing parents of extra-curricular activities available throughout the area so parents have many options to engage their children in a variety of activities for enjoyment and learning.
