    Love this school and I agree with the five stars for the school nurse! Teachers are positive caring and challenge their students academically to reach their potential. We found the administration extremely friendly helpful and easy to deal with. Even with a challenging workload of projects and homework my kids love to go to school each day!

    The school nurse is the best of the entire administration. The administration has had a lot of changes with a new principal in place that finally seems to be improving the school as they had many principal changes before her. They had discipline issues and lacked a system for watching kids on the playground (only a few teachers for multiple grades at recess). Most of the teachers were excellent although they had to deal with the prior issue of a changing administration. The few teachers that weren't good could not be reprimanded for anything at all. I've heard nothing but good things about the current principal however.

    The administration of the Hobomock School are very unwelcoming. As a parent I do not think my opinion is respected. I can not wait for my children to move on to middle school which is a very sad position to be in. Elementary school should be a wonderful time in a child's life...

    I have two children that attend Hobomock and I have found the teachers to be wonderful! My older child is in 4th grade and his work load is greater than last year but his teacher has taught the class to prioritize their work in order to complete multiple assignments. I feel that he is learning the study and organizational skills that he will need to carry with him for the years ahead. He is learning a lot this year and having fun with his class too! Mrs. Doherty is an awesome teacher and we are lucky to have her! Lastly the office staff are always polite and helpful! I am pleased to see our young school system growing in so many positive ways!

    The current principal has been there for the last 1 1/2 years. She has done a terrific job concentrating on a standards based curriculum.

    We had a horrible experience with this school. There is no structure in the classroom and absolutelty no discipline. Not a good environment for children who are there to learn.
