    "My older son started Kindergarten at Hardy Elementary last year. He did the TK program at a scool in C.V. the year before and was so stressed that he had night terrors every night. The teachers there were always late and there was no supervision of the children before or after school. When we started at Hardy, I was immediately impressed by the parent and teacher involvement. My son's night terrors stopped completely. My youngers son is now in Kinder and I am now a board member on the PTA. For parents who feel their work schedule is not accommodated, I invite and encourage you to send a note in your child's folder addressed to the PTA because we listen. We're here to serve you. Our meetings are now at 7:50 or 8:15 in the morning. We don't exclude and we certainly are not here to judge. The teachers are caring and respond to any concerns a parent expresses. The staff knows all the children by name. Academically, our students are doing very well. We have a PrimeTime afterschool program that helps children with homework. If tutoring is necessary, I encourage parents to speak up at a PTA meeting to see if we can start a tutoring system. Let's work together for our kids!"

    "I wanted to love it. My child attended his first few years of school here. I found this past year to be an improvement over prior; the new principal is much more approachable and brought fresh perspective. My child's teacher was GREAT, but understandably overwhelmed by the large class size,which makes it hard to give some students the extra help they need. I didn't think there was enough supervision on the playground, especially among the younger kids, some who still need guidance and help making friends. A few incidents occured that I found somewhat alarming and preventable. Sadly, my other issue was that the school does not accommodate the schedule of a working parent, should we wish to volunteer or join PTA. The weekly meetings were at 5 or 6 making it impossible to attend. I helped when I could but often felt judged by PTA moms and staff. More than once, a certain office staff member made hurtful, inappropriate remarks to me like "Oh I expected dad to pick up (my child). I NEVER see mom." I struggle with working moms guilt as it is and for some of us working is a necessity, not a choice. Bottom line: good school academically, but my child never really felt welcome nor did I."

    "We have had great experiences over the years at Hardy and are looking forward to another wonderful year. We have repeatedly seen Hardy parents get involved and work with our dedicated staff to make Hardy a warm, safe place for the children as well as a rigorous learning environment."

    "I have 2 children at Hardy- we have been there for 5 yrs now & have been very happy with our children's experiences there! They both love school & have loved their teachers and the school overall. It is a small, diverse school with a wonderful school community and fantastic caring teachers. I am impressed with the testing scores given the number of children with ESL students they are still very competitive. There are many after school activities available mileage club (a running/walking program) before school and a school garden program. They also have 2 different after school care programs. It is not perfect, but no school is and I think they work hard to create a safe, nurturing, environment that fosters learning for children."

    "I have 2 children in Hardy. We started 5 years ago and have been extremely happy ever since. The staff is caring and amazing with kids. It's nice to go to a school where most of thel adults know your child's name (it makes them feel accountable for their actions and a sense of community, knowing that they are noticed and looked after). I come from a small town and this is how it feels! This is a very kind, considerate and dedicated staff, intent on educating world citizens of many different cultures. Hardy is in the process of upgrading all of the school equipment so it might look a little dusty at the moment. But look beyond the dust and you will find a little gem of a school!"
