Parent Testimonials

“HFS has proven itself to be a warm, caring community for our two daughters, who have attended the school since they were toddlers. We value the personal attention they receive from teachers and administrators, and we treasure the community that HFS provides not only for our daughters, but for our family. ”

Elena & Brent (Parent)

“The teachers are really dedicated and create the most wonderful learning environment. They craft a curriculum that is well rounded and includes everything from yoga to making your own pasta as part of a Strega Nona literature unit. The learning environment sparks curiosity and my son loves going to school each day. ”

Ellen (Parent)

“HFS is special in so many ways. The teachers, kids, and everybody in the school is inspirational, kind, patient, and passionate about what they do. The school has a great environment and makes you feel relaxed when you come in. Since it’s a small environment, teachers can individually help anyone who struggles with a subject, and at the same time, stimulate the other children. I’m so grateful that I came to this school!”
