We just bought a house at Ranches East and was excited that we are in NISD. Our first year in NISD/Hughes Ele. This is a whole new ballpark for us especially coming from AISD. What really impressed the Principal greeted my child by his first name. You get the sense of belonging. I can also say that the teachers are very caring, respectful and nurturing towards their students and very professional towards parents. I am very impressed with their students safety policy. There is only one tiny little thing that the teachers can improve are their webpages. I feel that some teachers need to update their webpages and in that way busy parents can stay in touch of what's going day to day. My hats off for PTA. They are the back bone of the teachers. They have worked very hard from day one. It's not an easy task to orchestrate PTA events for the school. But the PTA Presidents and her team never fail to pull through and make everyone feel welcome. Other than that, overall, we are really very impressed with Hughes. We are happy to be part of Hughes family and very excited to see what is in store for us for coming years.
