    My children attend this school and absolutely love it. The faculty and staff makes everyone there (students parents and visitors) feel as if they are family. Every teachers works diligently to ensure that every child no matter there level is successful to the best of that student's ability. Hornsby is truly an outstanding school and I feel honored that my children can attend.

    AWESOME SCHOOL! Could not ask for more. i have had three children complete Kindergarten through 8th grade. Two of them graduated this year. I still have my youngest there. We have an excellent softball team! Go Bulldogs!

    Hornsby now has no arts(music or art) period. The "extra" classes are library guidence and computer.

  • (5 years ago)

    does not have very good written communication for parents on school outings/events....we were not born and reared here so we are usually the last to know on events involving the school

  • (8 years ago)

    Tons of homework but little classroom work. No extracurricular activities except basketball and cheerleading. Poor PTO group. School uniforms have no choice for the child.

  • (8 years ago)

    Poor leadership. Nothing but ball for extracurricular activities. No drama or art at school. Starting extremely strict dress code in Aug. 2007. Parents are allowed in school only when making money for school with fundraisers and PTO functions. Always wanting money from parents for one thing or another. Beware-not what it's cooked up to be.

    By far the best school in Hardeman County - principal and staff are excellent. Hornsby Elem. School provides a safe relaxed and caring learning environment that is very hard to find in most schools today! Keep up the good work!

    I love this school. The teacher per student ratio is wonderful the kids are able to get more one on one teaching and additional help. The staff is very courteous and patient. I have always received help when needed. The principal does a wonderful job and always has time to speak to you. My child has been in several schools and this one definitly ranks at the top!
