Horrible school,all the administration there is worried about is decorating & skimping as much as possible on anything to do with the education of the child won't be here much longer

I have a 1st grader attending Hearst Elementary School. i have had problems with my son being in school not participating not focusing and while other schools where quick to write him off and have him go to a "special" school Hearst School worked with him. they took time to figure out his strengths and really got him to focus. hes a new kid now i can see the difference every morning when i take him to school there's a smile on his face now. i thank Hearst Elementary for there hard work and dedication.

My child also attends Hearst cause we have no other choice the school in our district has been full for 3 years now , i agree with you about the safety of our children, my child comes home complaining about roaches and other insects and the food they serve is awful so she comes home hungry every day , most of the class rooms are over crowded , and it is hard for anyone to learn due to the teachers do not take control of the unruly children , so i am  desperately trying to find another school she can attend . i do not suggest anyone to send there child there if the care for them.

My children attend hearst school because I have no other choice. This school is not safe, the security at this school is almost none. There  is negligance and no organization. I requested an academic evaluation 2 years agofor my child  and all I have gotten form the school was supplies for at home tutoring.The rest rooms have no toilet tissue, and the water the children drink from the water fountain is hot and tastes awful. My children come home hungry because some days by the time its their lunch hour all they have is a small salad..
