    H.H.L.A. is awesome! My children begin their elementary school career at H.H.L.A. in Pre-K 3. They are still in attendance there however are now in Kindergarten and 1st grade. All teachers know all children. They are one big family! Mrs. East the principal is a jewel. I love this school!

    My son went to this school. Unfortunately we had to move. When I get updates from his current teacher I am finding that he is far more advanced than the other kids his age. His math skills reading and writing abilities and even social studies knowledge are better than his new counterparts. It is a great esteem booster for him to be the one in class with the right answers. I highly recommend this school.
