    J. Robert Hendricks Elementary School is the best in town. My daughter made Honor Roll all year. We are sorry to see Mrs. Twohill leave I hope the new principal is as good.

    This school will tap into all of your child's potential. The communication between teachers and parents is wonderful. Your child will glow with self pride. This is truly a remarkable school.

    The teachers and Principal at Hendricks are Wonderful! Our 3 boys are thriving there. Kindergarten is All day. The atmosphere is happy and positive. Excellent PTO. Many family events. They still have Music Library PE and Computer Classes which you can't find at many schools these days!

    I am very unhappy with the quality of education my son has received this year. I think the teachers provide very poor feedback. The feedback my child has received is either not enough or negative. I am very unhappy and I am considering changing my son to another school. I know that I am not the only parent that feels this way.

    Hendricks Elementary school in Tucson AZ is the best! I can't say enough about it. The quality of academics the availability of extracurricular activities is awesome! The kids have so many opportunities available. The staff is awesome too. I know the parent involvement is great. As I am one that volunteers too. You can't find a better school district to be a part of. Flowing Wells School District along with Hendricks Elem. Flowing Wells Jr. High and Flowing Wells High school is the best you will ever find. Keep up the good work Flowing wells!

    I cannot put into 150 words what a wonderful school Hendricks is. Students and parents are treated with respect dignity and honor. The teachers truely care about their students' success. The kids feel like they belong at Hendricks and it shows in each smiling face. Parent involvement is awesome. Parent teacher communication is made easy friendly and welcomed. Hendricks Hawks do indeed soar with pride.
