I had no idea this site existed otherwise I would have left my review years ago, just to have my voice heard finally. I’ve been at this school for 11 years, but this is my last. Honestly, the school has struggled in more recent years, but it wasn’t always like that. It used to be a wonderful school with a great support system. Looking at the scores on this site, it makes me sad that they have fallen so much. When my oldest child started at the school I believe it was an 8 or a 7. Now it is a 5? I think that speaks for itself. Thank you though to some of the wonderful teachers who have made a difference, I hope you know who you are.
There are some wonderful teachers at Hawkins. The primary grades seem to be the absolute best, and there are a bunch in the upper grades. The issue I think lies with the main administrator. We hope things get better.
Overall, it’s nice to see my son doing better. Teachers could spend a little more time keeping parents informed on how to access assignments that are due with sufficient information on how to do the assignment as well. Aeries needs to be updated more often. There is no reason things should go ungraded for weeks at a time and then suddenly an A is a D when the teacher finally decided to input informations the trimester just ended and I received my sons report card with final grades, but his math class still has an ungraded assignment which may or may not have bumped his grade up.
With mixed feelings I would give the school three stars right now because of the issues that are currently going on. Five years ago I would’ve given it four or five stars, but in my opinion, it has been declining for the last few years. I have one child who has graduated and one more coming through and as things stand right now, we are not very happy with our school. There are some amazing teachers at Hawkins though that will forever be remembered by my family. I think the bigger issues fall with the lack of leadership, including follow through and honesty, which ultimately is destroying the morale for students, parents and teacher relationships. We hope things get better.
