I have two children at this school both very different and the school has served both well. I disagree about serving bright and above average kids. While SSES was not good at this HKMS has done a great job for my extremely bright child and he has thrived there. The school expects a lot from the kids but helps them with the organizational and other tools that they need. I have two complaints. The first is writing. They are too focused on how the kids score in the writing assessments and in my opinion those assessments are not good measures of writing ability nor does teaching kids to score highly on writing assessments teach them how to write. My second complaint is parent interaction. Parents are given access to PowerSchool so that they can track how kids are doing on assignments but it is like pulling teeth to get thoughtful feedback from teachers to parents on their kids. There are no parent/teacher conferences and no process for alerting parents about academic or other issues that have come up unless the parents take the initiative.
