    I'm a retired high school teacher who has volunteered as a tutor at HFES five days a week 2 1/2 hours a day for the past three years. I'm familiar with this school and it's a good one! The core curriculum is excellent the teachers are committed and hard-working and the atmosphere in the school is pleasant and productive. Our children are not only being helped academically but are also learning valuable lessons in character development and citizenship. Of COURSE the school has problems. It is overcrowded and serves a challenging population. But just come visit! Or better yet volunteer. I think you'll be favorably impressed!

    Huntingtowne is the best school my daughter attended. The teachers were truly committed to helping my child reach her academic goals. The principal was always more than willing to talk to you if you had issues. The only thing I'd like to change is the fact the air conditioning is not on for PTA meetings. Other than that you can rest assured your child will be in a safe environment.

    Serously? A 3? And South Meck a 6? I will give you Endhaven is an 8 and Olde Providence a 10 but I lived in Huntingtown Farms neighborhood and walked to school with my sisters way back when and it is a LOT better of a school than is given credit. Don't believe everything you read or hear. Especially about this "report."

    One child has attended this school for 5 years and another for 2. We love this school. It has had its challenges over the years but the teachers are committed and are strong. We love the IB program and especially the IB attitudes. They are closely aligned with the spiritual gifts that we discuss and model as Christians. The assistant priniciple is the best! She is friendly with the kids and handled all behavior issues efficiently. Our children have been able to thrive here both educationally and socially.

    My son loves the school. He is in the IB Magnet program which is wonderful!! He is offered several different classes as well as a spanish language class. I feel the school will grow succesful in time.
