Another reviewer said it perfectly. Good academics but bare bones after that. My 3rd grader has never been on a field trip in the 4 years attending HCE. No performances no award ceremonies nothing. While I understand academics should always be the main focus here these are still children and Elementary school should still be fun. The principal is nice she's all talk and no action. I have only encountered one teacher I didn't care for everyone else is amazing. School safety is also a major concern for me at HCE. Their parent pick up & walker procedures are a nightmare. On several occasions I have witnessed strangers being let into the school with out ID checks. I have seen adults walking up to the parent pick up area and taking children with out being ID'd. That is extremely disconcerting. The classes are usually punished as a group for one childs bad behavior. This is hard for the child who loves their (twice a month) music class but never gets to actually do anything because the other children get the entire class on "red" and they are all punished for it. I want my children's elementary experience to be a positive one. We are currently searching for a new school.
