    "I read some of the negative reviews and have to disagree. The staff has been very cooperative with me, even when my son forgot his lunch at home. In fact, when my daughter left an important assignment at home, she was allowed to go to the office, call me, and request that I drop it off so she would get full credit. The teachers are very communicative and if you don't know how your student is doing it is because you, the parent, are not engaged. The principal is so warm and kind to the students; my daughter just loves her. Couldn't be happier!"

    "now we are at the end of our first year. I still say the teachers are responsive, but not proactive. In other words, if you kid is struggling in class, you as a parent better be on top of it, and be in contact with the teacher, because all we've gotten is "progress reports" sent home, but this is only after there's problem. Teachers don't email you or ask you in to discuss anything. I've had to request conferences just so I can see the actual test he's taken because they won't release them. It's a bit frustrating. However, the teachers have been accommodating about meetings, are responsive to emails, and overall my son likes it there. Campus seems to be fairly well supervised. But it sure it as change from our experiences in elementary school -- much more detached."

    "I have to agree with some of the comments left about Hewes. I think their envolement with being "politically correct" has become it's main focus and not on it's students. My daughter forgot her lunch one day. I took it into Hewes around the ten o'clock hour and was told they WOULD NOT contact her or even let her know that her lunch was there. When I asked them what they thought my daughter would do now with no lunch, all I got was a blank stare. There was no concern my daughter would go hungry that day, only a reprimand of me because I was asking them to give my daughter her forgotten lunch.....we took our kids out."

    "I think Hewes is a great school! Classes are very informational, and most teachers incorporate some fun into lessons. If we don't understand anything, teachers are always willing to put their time in to help us. We do get a lot of homework, but most of the time, we are given class time to complete them. I take a long time doing homework, but mostly because I procrastinate and get distracted easily. Last year, rules on homework were very strict. If you missed a homework assignment, intervention, NOT detention, as stated in other reviews, was assigned. Interventions were either during recess or lunch, and we were allowed to eat a snack or lunch during it. Now, interventions have been removed, and we just don't get full credit for missing homework, but getting 2 missed assignments will result in a detention. Some other reviews were complaining about the no cell-phone policy. I think that it's a reasonable rule because there is no way to learn while texting on your phone. Teachers sometimes use them because they have to, and they know how to restrict themselves. Overall, Hewes is a fabulous school! 1 thing I'd like to see is more student leadership positions like president, etc."

    "I agree with the student comment about negative consequences. I have older kids that went to Hewes. I think the culture and environment has changed a lot since they implemented the no grace policy they now have. The kids might conform to avoid punishment, but they loose some of the joy of learning."
