West Hardin Elementary School Reviews
West Hardin Elementary School is among if not the best Elementary of institution of learning in the United States. I know that says a lot, but I truley believe West Hardin has such a unique bond of kindred desire to provide the very best atmosphere for learning for children in grades preschool through fifth grade. There is a unique harmony among the adminstration, graded class teachers, and support staff that is second to none I have found in my lifetime. I attended a number of elementary schools as a child, I am proud to say, I have learned through my close reiationship with West Hardin for the past thirty years, this institution of elementary learning has maintained the best qualities of the "old school" combined with best of cutting edge technology to provide the highest standards of excellence for students today. The administration, faculty and staff combine to create a unique family working together to provide the best education for students, and they do so with a harmony that is second to none in the great network of elementary education facilities world wide. No child is left behind at this school, and this a truth that abides in spite of the fact that this school turns no student away, and in spite of the fact that its student body consists of students from every imaginable walk of life. I thank God for this school, its adminsitration, faculty and support staff with absolutely no reservations. I am able to say these things about this school, because, both of my children began and finished their elementary education at West Hardin; and due to the fact that my wife is one of the instructors and prior to that she worked several years as an aid and served several successive terms as president of the West Hardin PTO. Through her active relationship with this school, naturally, I have served throughout this tenure as a support for her work, her ambtion and her service through West Hardin Elementary. To say the least, I have had a close and binding relationship with this school for the past twenty four years. May our dear Lord bless this school with the ability of continuance in providing the highest standard of education available anywhere, including any private or religious school; may He watch over this student body, keep them safe from harm or accident, give each student a mind and a desire to learn; may He likewise watch over each teacher, administrator and staff member with protection from harmful event of any kind, or any evil of any kind, and further bless their gifts of imparting knowledge to these young minds. In the name of Jesus Christ, we make this intercession. May it be so, in the perfect will of the Almighty, even as we have petitioned.
I think its a great school and all, except for the fact that you cant go in to pick up your child. I feel that if you use the parking spaces provided and you dont block traffic then you should be allowed to walk your child out. Sometimes ill let my daughter get stickers from the machine or have questions to ask in the office, and its just rediculous. Smaller children in kindergarten should be allowed their parents to come in. not just pre k
