    I am a parent of three former Hebron students. We have relocated so my kids no longer attend this school. There are some things I liked about Hebron but I was glad we left when we did. I was not impressed with the principal. He seemed proud of the fact that the school was overcrowded. He also talked way too much at meetings. Because Hebron was not a failing school studemts from outside the district could request a transfer to Hebron. The prinicpal did not put a cap on how many students he let in. There's no reason there should be 30 kids in a class especially for kindergartners. The teachers were obviously stressed by this and there was increase in discipline problems from the 1st year we were there until we left 4 years later. I also didn't like how the principal kept messing around with the gifted students. One year they were all together by grade in a class and the next year he split the class in half and put them with low performing students to see if that helped the lower performing students. My son learned more in 2nd grade then in 3rd because of this. Plus his 3rd grade teacher spent more time teaching them songs and fun stuff then academics. I'm glad we moved when we did.

    My grandson has had a teacher who is not using validated evidence based academic and behavioral teaching strategies with the children. My grandson is struggling in math and she has not attempted to differentiate instruction or provide intervention for him nor has she tried to develop a positive relationship with him or use positive behavior techniques. There are other teachers who seem to be good teachers but the principal has not responded to her treatment of the children in her classroom. One inadequate teacher can affect the whole school

    Very little student teacher interaction. My son has been attending this school for 3 years and each teacher has been very lax in the parent/teacher communication as well.

    My kindergartener LOVES going to school. Faculty is awesome.

    My two children went to this school for kindergarten and second grade. My youngest who is slow with his speech and a little behind in his reading compared to his peers was tested by the school and I was informed there is nothing wrong with him and he would just 'grow into' his weaknesses and that was the end of it. So when we relocated to Kentucky he was now in 1st grade and I was told he was just NOW at kindergarten level. When I told the new school that we were assured that everything academically was fine and nothing further was suggested for us to do they were appalled. We were told we were pretty much swept under the rug. Now because of no help from Hebron our son never had the chance to play catch up and has to repeat the first grade. Thanks for not caring Hebron.

    I sent both of my students to Hebron and they enjoyed it a lot. It gave them a great advantage when they got to middle school and high school. They came more prepared and willing to learn thanks to the hard work of faculty at Hebron. Hebron is friendly and very diverse; a great place for your children.
