this school is getting lower and lower.Teachers are losing their interest in teaching .Efficiency is gone from school teachers.Kids doesn't want to go to school because of their behavior.

My children have been attending Hitch for most of their school' years. The Hitch family cares for their students. I am impressed with the principle, Ms Reese takes great measures for the continued success of the school. If your child has a chance to attend Hitch that is truly a blessing.

This school is amazing! My children are also testing above average in all subjects. There is a growing sense of community and much of the PTA work feels grass roots because the school had done such a turn around. I am happy with the diversity of children speaking other languages even if it brings ...  Read more

I have two boys attending this school. I transferred them at the beginning of the school year. At first I was hesitate given that my sons were at a performing art school.
