    I have one child at this school right now. This is my first interaction with the school its been trying to say the least. Not a lot of teacher parent interaction many of the important information is sent home too late or not with enough notice. The class has too many students and only one teacher no aids at all. I do hope that next year will be better.

    I have two students who attend Hermes and I am very pleased with the education they have received so far. The teachers I have interacted with are very nurturing and that is very much needed at this level. Thank you for doing a great job.
