    "Tons of potential. There are a many great teachers, but this place seems to have some underlying issues. There is another new principal this year, but so far she is doing better than the rest. There are plenty of programs, and parent involvment is high. With the right leadership Hometown could be an A school."

    "I have to say this school has improved greatly in the last 3 years. The office staff is very nice and the quality of teachers being hired has greatly improved. I am impressed how much is being taught at the Kindergarten level. My 3rd grader seems to be enjoying school as well. I like where this school seems to be headed. They seem genuinely concerned about the well fare of the students. It seems much more nuturing and inviting with out sacrificing a quality education."

    "I am very haapy with this school. My son was a kindergarten student last year, and I can not believe how much he has learned. His teachers were so kid friendly and made the experience very pleasant. Our school has a lot of great teachers and parents who really care about the students. The principal on the other hand, very few people like her. She does however run the school with very few incidents. She does not tolerate bad behavior! She does need to loosen up a little. Especially with the parents. She is not an easy person to talk to. Curriculum is awesome! Aside from the principal, the school is a very good place to send your child to learn and achieve!"

    "The school is nicely located. The principal leaves much to be desired. She is bossy and pompous. There are a handfull of teachers that are nice and have the childrens bests at heart but, most of them have a is the side of the principal. The PTA is very involved but never really gets much done because it is nixed by the principal. The school is over crowed and their lunch room/gym. Can not hold all the children at the same time. I would not let my child go there but I have no other choice."
