Our two children have thrived at Haw Creek Elementary. Both of their teachers are kind and responsive. My children are always talking about their classrooms being their school family, and they love going to school. Initially I felt nervous about the building because there are some classrooms that don't have windows and it felt uncomfortable putting a child in a room with no windows. But honestly, it has been totally fine. When you walk into the school it feels organized and efficiently run.

We've been a part of the Haw Creek family for two years. Our son loves his school and we do too! The teachers are wonderful. They are kind and create a nuturing environment where all kids can feel successful. They are open to parent volunteers and on any given day you see parents participating in classrooms and helping throughout the building. We love that the school is small and has a community feel! We've also been really pleased with the new principal who seems to really care about the students and school. He has been making positive changes that are in student's best interest, making himself available to parent concerns, and helping to support classroom teachers throughout the day. It's wonderful to see everyone working together so cohesively!

Haw Creek Elementary is one amazing school! My son just finished his kindergarten year - and I couldn't imagine sending him anywhere else. The teachers are dedicated, caring and open minded enough to realize that every child may not learn the same way. My son LOVES school and cannot wait to go back in August. He's already counting the days! I think that says it all. Overall, I am extremely happy with the academic and extracurricular activities that HCES has to offer each year. The PTO is the most dedicated I have seen in this area. There is also a strong anti-bullying atmosphere throughout the school. I would highly recommend Haw Creek Elementary.

Unorganized and incompetent on all levels. Do not send your child to this school. There is no communication, complete apathy, and management is nonexistent. Just look at the decline in test scores, if you don't want to take my words.

A serious decline in this school since the new principal has taken over. My child's teacher failed to give out handouts in a timely manner. This may have been because the handouts were given to her late. Whatever the reason there is a total disconnection between how a real school should operate. The school seems to expect the kids to notify their parents of last minute changes. The new principal seems to care more about saving face than making a difference. Some teachers do not "believe in homework," but my question is, how does the classwork get reinforced? The whole leadership system has declined and lacks good structure.
