Open Quote Major improvement since new leadership in 2015, A principal who cares about children, is straight forward, and her main concern is their success!!

They have changed the curriculum and introduced the STEM program which is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics which is inquiry based and hands on learning. Our children will be learning the whats, whys, and how's of composting, the weather with the new weatherbug station,the children will be tech savvy, they also have musical instruction and learn to play violin, read sheet music, will learn spanish.

My children are taking flight under the wings of the most dedicated educators and paraprofessionals in the state. HAS is going places! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
