  • My son has been attending HCCS since Kindergarten; he is now in the 3rd grade and is doing well. His teacher is very good; screams a lot but it seems to work well with the children. I am very happy with the school, the staff and everything. I wish more parents would get involved. It is nice when the parents attend to see their children receive their awards; however it would be nice if they would stay for the entire PTA meeting.
