    I have three children enrolled in Sixteenth & Haak one is graduating this year. I absolutely love this school. All of my children love their teachers and they go out of their way to keep me informed on how my children are doing academically. My daughter is a type one diabetic and they understand her limitations and always keep me involved in everything my daughter is part of. I can say that Sixteenth & Haak is one of the best elementary schools my children have attended.
