    My daughter has been a student here for 3 years. All of her teachers have been amazing motivating challenging and supportive. The support staff is so friendly and Mrs. Rebecca Tozer the school's guidance counselor is an absolute gem and the best around!! The faculty and staff have made a positive impact in my daughter's life. Meri Albert

    This school is okay but its not the best. I'm going into 8th this year & its fine. Although the staff is really rude. I asked the (can't say name) if i can get a"Personal item" & all they did was yell at me & tell me to bring my own when I didn't know i was on it. Plus I get picked up early a lot cause I get sick & have problems & all they do is stare at me with a rude face. But on the other hand some teachers are nice & the kids there are really nice!

    This is a truly terrible school. It's an image first and children last kind of place. I have repeatedly had problems with the principal. They changed my child's teacher three times in one year. I recommend avoiding sending your children here.

    I have big issue with some of the staff at this school. especially Well never mind not suppose to use names. I am currently considering bringing a lawsuit against this school.

    This is a school that is only concerned about ratings and making parents feel good instead of doing the hard work of actually educating the children. The school is a joke. The principal Leslie Sileo-Robinson is a local politician who uses the same prowess of flawed policy making in drafting faulty dangerous decisions that will negatively impact our children.

    6th grade the first half of the year at Hinson was a little hard. Once we talked to the Principals and Teachers my son had once again wanted to go . This year in 7th he loves all his teachers and enjoys be there. There will always be kids who bully others but at Hinson they took action before it could get any worse. Thank you

    I love this school!David C. Hinson is very involved with the students and is very high in the standards of education.The mathematics teacher Wilson is great and helps children exseed in the exspectations. My mom worked there and she loved it.

    The school is perfect for every child. My favorite 6th grade teacher is ms. Boyle. She is an amazing advanced geography teacher!! the only bad thing that the school has done is that you are not aloud to have backpacks. The teachers say well it doesn't hurt your backs well i had to go to the doctor because my small sport bag messed up my spine and bruised my shoulders!! but the school is amazing.

    The Agriscience and FFA at this school are outstanding. The leadership skills that are learned and the community service that is done by these students and teacher are unending. This is not a farming deal anymore this is about creating leaders and future businessman and women and giving them the skills to perform in the outside world which produces our food and manages our environment. Cudos to Ms. Weaver and her FFA all students should consider this elective and chapter program

    I've been a parent for 4 years here. It is an outstanding school. Although not perfect it strives to be the best. The administration is caring and supportive towards parents students and teachers. Regarding the teachers I would give them a 90% approval rating. The facilities are excellent.

    Poor leadership horrible communication or lack there of. Education is not important here only sports and control of the children.

    I moved here from NY and I love this school. The teachers and other staff are very active activist for the students. The school is very well organized and they all seem to know what is going on and they all seem to know each kid by name. It is great!
