I was hesitant to enroll my son here since we are in the complete minority and the ratings but we didn't have any other option. It has turned out to be a great school! ALL of the staff have been nothing but nice. They stand in the halls and say "hello" to everyone who walks by and the principal is very visible and approachable. They run a very tight ship at Hornets Nest. My son is in first grade and he has no complaints about being at this school. I do sometimes question if he is learning as much as he was at his old school but his reading and math skills are still progressing so they're doing something right! We have only been here for 'almost' 2 months but NO complaints so far.
