    I absolutely love this school. The teachers are great and always make you feel welcome into the class room at anytime. I've had 3 students attending over the last 15 years and there really isn't enough good things I could say. Teachers are not only quick to identify academic hurdles that may arise but also quick to act on them and get the extra help the student needs. Fabulous I say...FABULOUS!

    Hedges is a terrific elementary school. The teachers are dedicated; administration is hard-working and passionate about the school. It also just has a very nice feel about it. A lot of families walk to/from school every day and the school is bright and cheery.
