Hess Academy Reviews

2 reviews
My son is in 7th grade at Hess Academy. When I first visited, I was so impressed by the middle school – the students were working, laughing, and learning with their teachers. Middle school is a time of growing independence, but also great vulnerability. The Hess middle school teachers are warm, supportive, and truly enjoy the children they teach. Since starting at Hess, my son, who is dyslexic, has excelled in writing, which had always been a struggle for him. Hess not only provides an academically individualized and challenging atmosphere, but the teachers and staff also focus on personal relationships and help the children grow socially. So happy to have found this school for our kiddo!

We discovered Hess Academy when we were looking for a preschool program for our son. By the time it was time for him to begin Kindergarten at CSD, we were so in love with Hess that we decided to stay. There are so many things that are great about Hess, but here the three things that work especially well for us.

First, plenty of healthy outside time. The kids begin the day with 20-30 minutes in the playground before they need to into their classes. Lunch and recess are another hour, and everyone finishes the day with another 15 minutes in the playground. Second, classes are capped at 12-14 students with two full-time teachers. The individualized attention that our son’s intellectual and emotional needs receive are, therefore, outstanding. Finally, the kids do not go through the horrible Standardized Testing that has become the norm at the Public-School system. There is so much more to love about this school— Just go and tour the school!
