    There are serious problems at this school. The school consistantly ranks among the lowest in Lompoc. They are so poor right now they only teach math and English. No science social studies art or music. In the morning the student are required to wait in the cafeteria. No parents allowed on campus in the morning so no chance for parent teacher interaction. PTA has only 3 people at the meetings. The staff is surley and the only kids that seem to get any attention or recognition are the ones who are failing or trouble makers

    Arthur Hapgood Elementary School has great teachers who care about the students and do there best to help them learn. Everyone there is friendly and helpful! My son loves this school and the teachers even gets upset when he can't go to school on the weekend!

    My kids went to Hapgood last year because of its proximity to the new home we just moved in. At that time the school had very serious problems with safety and security. The fenced gate had lacerated portions that an adult can easily squeeze oneself to get in. There were also a lot of bullies in the campus that the principal at that time appeared to be addressing but unable to follow through. It's a pretty big school that needs a seasoned highly competent leader.

    I last posted a comment in 2005. My daughter is now in 3rd grade. Since leaving Mrs. Bridges class she has had Mrs. Wooley 1st grade and Mrs. Brown 2nd grade. These two teachers are excellent. Due to our Catholic faith my child has left Hapgood and is now attending a private school. My understanding of this private school was that the children excel as some classrooms have 1 teacher to 10 children. My daughter has acclimated to her new school and is doing exceptionally well due in part to all three teachers at Hapgood. Mrs. Brown is to be commended for her style of teaching and for challenging children. Mrs. Wooley's style of teaching is also a style to be emulated by all as she is a teacher that also goes above and beyond her teaching requirements. Hapgood is an exceptional school that provides excellent teaching to children.

    I must agree with the previous review of Ms. Bridges. I placed my daughter with her and I couldn't have been happier. My daughter just loved her and still does. She's a great teacher.
