    "I have been extremely pleased with this school & my daughter loves it. The security is as much as you could expect & well done. The way they get K's acclimated to the school is very well done. The principal is definitely a leader to the teachers and students. My daughter is in Kindergarten. There were more K students this year than expected so all the classes were too large and they had to make an extra class. My daughter was chosen to be pulled into the new class. The way they did it was great for the kids. I am glad they did it because smaller classes are better for the students to get the attention they need with the teacher. Both of the teachers that she has had have been great. They are more focused on each individual students learning needs. Example: a child may be ahead in some areas and behind in others, that child is taught to move forward where they are ahead even if the other students aren't ready for new materials. And they are helped to catch up where they are behind even if they are way behind. They are all learning on an individual basis. When I was in school - the class learned together & it didn't matter if you were ahead or behind in any area and I hated this."

    "I have 3 grandchildren and many adopted grandchildren in HCE. I am a volunteer and can only say good things about the teachers, Miss Hall, Mr. Roberts and the staff at this school. This small town school with a big heart has got to be the best school ever. I only wish that my daughter had been able to attend it when she was younger. Kyle, Kasey, & Kammi Cribbs Nana"

    "My nana used to work here. Her name was Mrs. Meinke. She retired, but she never stops talking about this school. I went there through all of elementary. I'm now in 7th grade. I realize now, that I couldn't have asked for a better school. Rachel Meinke"
