We love this school. Our son just began at Hawthorne this year and I've seen a big difference in his self esteem and maturity. The inclusion program is exceptional and I'm so happy and thankful they have it here. The new principal is phenomenal. She's so friendly, approachable, and makes you feel your ...  Read more

Before moving into this area I heard nothing but good things about this school. However, I regret that move now. Some of the staff is rude and very off putting. My child comes home with weekly stories of loud, unruly children and unclean rest rooms. My child's love for school and self esteem have ...  Read more

I have heard great things before my kids came into the school, it had great teachers, some of them are gone, which is very sad. But the worst look of the school is the customer service, how rude they can be, they would attend to certain parents, you might get into the main office and you actually have ...  Read more

We have a new principal. The interim principal did some incredibly posiitive work in the few months she was there. The kids can chat at lunch now and they are able to sit with friends. As for learning and behavior, the teachers my children have had are focused on engaging their minds through positive ...  Read more

Excellent experience. I hate we had to move away. Front office staff was the best I've ever experienced.

Incredibly committed staff. Involved parents. Teacher-student ratio is best in DeKalb County. Hawthorne is a Coralwood partnership school, which means it has a higher percentage of students with special needs. Unlike many schools in DeKalb, Hawthorne practices an inclusion model. Most classes have a ...  Read more

It's surprising to read some of Hawthorne's reviews but everyone's entitled! I would comment on the incredible negative review which was posted in Dec of 2010 but quite frankly it's not worth the time. Let s note one comment though which quotes the kids as saying everyone has brain or behavioral issues??? ...  Read more

Quite frankly, I'm still trying to figure this school out. Rather than posting my thoughts thus far, let me quote my kids: "The teachers are mean and rude. They talk down to you, and use sarcasm to make it seem like a joke." "I will never be able make friends here mom. Everyone has brain or behavior ...  Read more
