  • Many parents will forego sending their children to private school in this area until they are in middle school. The quality of leadership and teaching is exceptional. The principal and staff care deeply about the children and do all they can to create an interactive and fun atmosphere for the children to learn in. Three of My fourn children went to Hesse and have performed wonderfully in middle school.
