Sickened by this low rated school... there's so mathny issues with this school that I find difficulty thinking of where to start! I'm trying to find a way out for my children! The teachers don't even bother to dress for work! Everything is gross fro the miniscule office with one chair to the tacky spray painted ground. showing that have no class and could careless . Oh and all students are Hispanic so of your child dare to be born in the us prepare for them to be treated as an outsider!

After reading the reviews on Huff Elementary I feel that some of the parents don't seem to realize how much effort and dedication teachers have to put into teaching. As a parent I know for a fact that there is homework sent home with students. Some of the students choose to do their homework at school so that might explain some students not having homework to be done at home. The teachers at Huff are caring and very much on top of all school activities. I believe that parents need to work with their children's teachers as a team. We need more parent representation and involment in school. Unfortunatly there is not much cooperation from parents when it comes to school-parent related matters. I feel that my child received the best education at Huff Elementary. I am very thankfull to the wonderfull and caring teachers principal and nurse there.
I WISHED I WOULD HAVE TRANSFERED MY KIDS AT THE BEGINNING OF SCHOOL THEY FOCUS ON THINGS THAT DOES NOT MATTER IF THEY FOCUSED ON MATH READING SPELLING AND ETC. THEY WOULD NOT BE ONE OF THE POOREST PERFORMING SCHOOL AND THEY ARE ALSO RACIST THEY HARASSE ALL THE AFRICAN AMERICAN KIDS
I love this school! The principal truly believes in educating children. For the first time I truly feel my child is getting a quality education.
Very disorganized school. The staff don't seem to care about my child nor do I feel like they even tried with my child. They never give the kids homework on take them on field trips..ever! How can you you never have any homework? When I would ask the teachers about it they would always give me the deer in the headlights look. How can a child do well in school when the teachers and staff are not doing thier job. I finally had to pull her out and put her in a priviate school. She is doing much better and I have never gotten the deer in the headlights look even from the first year teachers. I would not recommend this school to anyone!
I really used to love this school until this year.I do not feel it is organized or that the children are watched going in and coming out of school.It saddens me to see the decline of this school.I hope this changes once more.
I feel that this school is great and has great potential. I am the Cubscout Leader of Pack 25 at Huff School. Please maintain this school and keep the parents involved.
