Hitch Elementary School Reviews

New principal at school seems to be very involved with the students- always dropping in to the classrooms to say hi. He is very focused on bringing more fine arts back into the school. The dress code implemented makes the students look nice for school and this way there's no competition, plus it makes getting the kids ready for school so much easier!

My daughter has a severe peanut allergy and the school has done everything to keep my daughter safe and give me peace of mind. The school set up a meeting between my daughter's teacher, the school nurse, and the school guidance counselor so we could all set up a plan of action just in case my daughter accidentally came into contact with peanuts and asked me what was ok and what was not ok to do. Currently, there is benadryl and 2 epi-pens at her school, just in case, and all adults who are in contact with her- teachers, nurse, counselor, principal, etc. are trained in when and how to administer an epi-pen. Also, Hitch is a healthy choice school so all food served there is healthy, no candy, cookies, chips, etc. The school's main focus is being healthy and active.
