Hobby was a surprisingly wonderful experience for my son. The teachers went above and beyond to work with his IEP. They teach effectively and truly care about the kids. The school expects their students to behave and so they do for the most part. Thank you Hobby!

My four children have all attended Hobby Middle School and we have been very pleased throughout their time at the school. They were well prepared for the rigorous program at Clark High School. I heard concern from some parents when the school began offering free lunch to all students in 2018, as if that was a negative indicator for the school. I think putting all students on an equal footing in that regard is a plus. Middle school is a developmental stage with challenges for all kids. Given the age, students may bring home stories that will sound scary to first-time middle school parents. That happens in private schools as well, so it shouldn't be a negative about a particular school. I think the Hobby administrators and teachers do a great job guiding middle school kids. Hobby is a diverse school, with kids from varying backgrounds and socioeconomic status. I think the diversity is a big plus at Hobby, especially for students who attended a less diverse elementary school. High achieving students will be challenged in the pre-AP classes and the GT teachers are great as well. The music program is very strong with Mr. Weber providing excellent long- time leadership for the band and Mr. Romero, a newer orchestra teacher who is young and energetic. The coaches in the athletics program really care about the student athletes and teach good sportsmanship and teamwork as well as athletic skills. I highly recommend Hobby Middle School.

Our experience has been excellent at this school. The administration is supportive, caring, and involved. The teachers are passionate, warm, knowledgeable, concerned, and supportive. Academics are challenging if you choose to be challenged. I love that the administration encourages all students to try Pre-AP and test for GT. No student is ever encouraged to settle. The music program is also incredible!!! The orchestra and band are very advanced and the students receive excellent, challenging instruction. Every school has its problems and concerns, but Hobby has no more than any other middle school in the district. And I would say it has less. Middle school is a tough age group. The support, positivity, caring, and character guidance at this school are worth their weight in gold for these students. We feel honored to be a part of the Hawk Family and feel lucky to have stumbled upon this gem of a school.

Our experience at Hobby has been excellent. My children have loved being at Hobby and are proud to be Hobby Hawks. They love their teachers and participating in sports and arts programs. Hobby has an excellent music program (band, orchestra, and choir) including beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes. I highly recommend Hobby Middle School, whether your child is in special education, gifted and talented, or somewhere in between. There are so many opportunities available to students no matter what their interests. Hobby feeds into Clark High School which is also an excellent school.
