    I love this school my son is special needs and was transferred from another school which was just a block away from home so I was upset at first but now I'm so glad they did there is so much more interest from the teachers to find out what works for him they go above and beyond to accommodate him I didn't have to go to them to offer information they came to me since the beginning to speak to therapist previous teachers etc. which was quite the opposite from his previous school so I totally recommend this school to anyone especially our special needs kids who need that extra attention and effort.

    My son is studying here and I think that the teachers and the school environment is very friendly and encouraging for the students.

    I think this school is excellent! My children have been attending for 5 years and I was sad when my oldest had to leave. There's a great atmosphere in the school. Most of all the children love to be there!

    Great school in this area. Wish there were more extracurricular activities. I would be willing to pay extra registration fee. But teachers and principal are excellent!

    I have a child that has been in attendance with Hermansen the past 3 years. The dedication the staff contributes to the students is beyond expectations. I also appreciate the parent (PTO) involvement and the strength of their bond to accomplish numerous functions for the students. My daughter loves school and her teachers.

    I have a child in kindergarten and she has been doing fantastic! I am extremely satisfied with the curriculum and her teacher. My child even tells me how challenging the work is and she loves it!

    I am very happy with the staff at this school. I have seen how my child has blossomed in this school. I also appreciate how involved the teachers are when it comes to involving the parents with their child(ren) progress.

    I feel my children are taught in a safe environment. I feel the teachers are responsible and reliable as it relates to my children learning. I smile as I see what bright and independent learners they are becoming.
