School Reviews

I have one child attending HCA. Last year was a hard year for our school, since we were displaced for most of the academic year due to Sandy. But this year has gone beyond my expectations. Our new principal is amazing. He has breathed new life into the community and our children are doing better than ever. We have an enormous amount of programs for our children and our teachers are wonderful. Our school may be the quiet one on the west side of town, but we are mighty.
