    I transferred my daughter here from University Park Arts due to transportation. I am very disappointed she was doing more in kindergarten at Uiversity than in1st grade here. The work is not challenging at all she is done with her homework in 5 mins. This school year I am trying to get my daughter back in a full magnet. The children in this school are at severe disadvantage. Parents beware.

    I was somewhat apprehensive when my child began first grade because we had just moved to the area. However she now enjoys going to school and is learning a lot. She loves her teacher Ms. Simmons and comes home happy everyday excited to share stories about her day!

    I really was impressed with the teachers and the way they interacted with my children. I have three children and this was there first time at a Charlotte Mecklenburg School and I loved Ms. McCoy Ms. Jones and Ms. Phifer and Ms. Smith. The Principal was always visable for the parents to see and it was a great experience and I am so thankful that they attended there!

    I moved here almost two yrs ago and i have a 10 year old. My son is in mrs tuckers class she has been a blessing to him. Her tirerless efforts in teaching my son and working with him has brought out the best in him. The progress he has made is unbelievable. If i could have one wish now it would be for hickory grove to extend its grades to the 12th. Leevon loyd my son is now in the fourth grade and has one yr left i fear the day he has to leave. Reason being is i know the teachers he has now are genuine in what they do and how they feel about children like my son.
