    I havve two kids that went to brownsvalley. my daughter finished it out from 2nd to 6th. I never liked the school to much so my sons last year i begged to move him out. He now goes to hemlock i really enjoy this school just in the 3 mnths my son has been there his grades and repect for others as shown progress. there is less teasing and bulling in this school and the principal shows a lot of intrest in her students.

    I have 2 children who attend hemlock and am very very pleased with the school. My kids enjoy going and since it is a smaller school everyone knows eachother! I hope this school stays open because it will be a great stress on all students and staff involved.

    I have had the honor of being part of the Hemlock community for a few years now and I have to agree that Hemlock is the best school. I have never met a more determined group of teachers and parents.

    My son is in Kindergarten. His teacher has been great this year. He has grown so much this year. He's reading and writing. He's at a first grade learning level. I've had no complaints this year. The staff is wonderful and the new principal seems to be doing a great job.

    This school is the best by far. The whole staff is very friendly and family oriented. Kids come first at this school!
