    "Since all the reviews i see are very old I fely obligated to help new families movong to the area. When my child first started at hta I was concerned because the teachers and staff name dropped learning techniques like Saxton as if I'm supposed to be impressed by it or something. I'm concerned that it's lazy teaching techniques and while they're in a good area with smart children who do well in test situations naturally, I believe it possibly takes away from the natural love of learning children have. Timed tests and repeating facts isn't learning, solving problems and being able to explain how you solved it is. Furthermore, I believe they are implementing obsolete expectations. For the world we're in reciting facts and spouting times tables is useless, out of the box thinking and proof of concept is what will be useful in the future. I hope as my child continues her education there I'll learn more about it and can change my opinion. Otherwise I'm sure we'll find a better school in the area."

    "My chilrdren really love this school. They have been here for five years and the changes have been truly amazing! The teachers are dedicated, the curriculum is challenging, and the administration is very willing to help. Parent involvement is encouraged and the PTO appreciates any and all help!"

    "We have only lived here 6 months but every interaction we have had with this school has been top notch! My 5th grader loves his teachers and has the best grades since kindergarten. Even when he needed to be disciplined we were involved right away. This is a great school in my book!"

    "Higley has improved drastically over the past couple of years. The new principal is very dedicated, and the teachers and staff are all kind and hardworking. The student population is diverse, and they all show excellent character. I've had 2 children enrolled there for the past 3 years, and they've never had a problem with bullying. They've also received great educations. Higley's test scores are improving every year, so the "Excelling" label is not out of reach. Having taught at schools in the Kyrene, Chandler, Gilbert, and Scottsdale districts. I can honestly say that HEMS is at least as good if not better than many of those others."
