    My school is caring nurturing and up to speed on current educational trends. Technology has been updated and kids can function in the competitive computer age.

    Parents and students alike feel like home in Hughes school. Strong staff great teachers. From principal to music teacher from counselor to janitor they work hard to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for all kids. I like the small class size and diversity of each class. PTO is thoughtful and effective in both raising fund for giving back to school and connecting parents to teachers. School has rich and balanced academic agenda and tries to raise the bar for each kid whenever possible. I have plenty of ways to communicate with teachers if need to but wish to hear more feedback through notes phone calls or parent-teacher conference etc.
