There is something to be said about the amount of personal attention one receives in a small school/district. Having attended and graduated from a 5000+ student suburban district it was definitely a shock coming here. At first I was appalled by the apparent lack of structure; however upon closer examination found giving students freedom (in moderation of course) is actually a very good thing! They learn quickly that they have a voice and their opinion matters. The students are also not grade/class rank driven robots concerned only with excelling beyond their peers in terms of numbers as my peers and I were apt to be. Instead the staff makes sure students focus on relationships and the importance of good character. I still could use a bit more discipline and self-motivation but these are issues that come from a lack of structure at home not a result of poor teaching.
My 4 kids have been going to coolville elemetary for 3 years. They say that the teachers are awsome the kids are very friendly and they also say that they are glad that they started going to federal hocking!
I do not agree with the previous statement! I as a child went to Alexander Federal Hocking and sampled Athens and I tell you what I would choose NOTHING but Federal Hocking for my kids. THEY dont see them as numbers they see them as individuals for our future. I am disgusted with the fact that someone could post that they care nothing of academics. My son is a kindergartener who reads in paragraphs now has beautiful handwriting works on mathematics and is learning about the presidents! And with all of this HE LOVES school! I know for a fact other local schools have not even began to work on the 'reading' factor in 'K'. They are still learning numbers and letters as I have friends and family in those programs. I would recommend Federal Hocking esp. Coolville to anyone wanting more than just a school for their kid !
My 3 kids went to Fed Hock. Elem. last year. Now they go to Alexander I'm sorry to say but I feel their new school only views them as $ and #. Even though Fed. has fewer % on their test results i really miss the faculty that got to know my child and what they were able to acomplish. My kids were happy to get up and go to school at Fed. Hock. because it was close like a family there and comfortable for me and my kids. Pre-K Baca... K-Manhire..Cain..& Matters are all SUPER teachers & role models and should be Given an award for going out of their way for thier students! We miss you & appreciate what youve done for us! ) Love Denise Kaylee Clayton & Ethan Riling
this school spends more time closed than open and they spend more time on sports than education. I can not wait to get my son out of this school.I have never see a school like this one they close for any reason they can but they still have sports and games when the school is closed for learning. I see nothing that would give anyone any academics i would advise all parents to stay away from this school if you want your child to learn any thing or to have a chance at a real life as they get older. this has been the nighmare that no parent would want for them or their child dont walk but run away as fast as you can.
