Hawthorne used to be an amazing school. Dr. Klein's leadership was phenomenal and the school prospered. But under Mr. Tombaugh's guidance the school crumbled, the school became a prison. They are currently unable to teach students and instead are handling misbehaving students 24/7

I've been extremely fortunate that both of my children have attended and still attend Hawthorne. I can't say enough about the faculty, the administrative staff, the PTO, and the principals. Dr. Klein and Dr. Gibbs, there just aren't enough words. It's time for my daughters and I to move, but so much ...  Read more
