First year at HIES in ninth grade, and so far we love it. My son knew by the end of the first week that he liked his new school, and we knew we had made the right selection from several acceptances. The teachers and support of the Deans and Administration make this a wonderful school. The academics are challenging, but there is plenty of individual support when extra help is needed. Overall a good group of kids that have welcomed the new students.
