My son attended Elon Park for his first year in Kindergarten and I can not say enough wonderful things about the experience he has had. We LOVE it! We would like to move from a development called Southampton to Blakeney Greens and he would attend Hawk Ridge next year. I have heard it is a great school, but lately I have heard it has gone "down hill" since the loss of their principal.

I would love to hear from teachers/parents/even students of either school to get an idea! I appreciate your responses!

We just went for the 1st Kindergarten night, this past Thursday and we left with a great impression. They seems to be well organized, the school look great and the PTA seems to be very pro-active. I had only heard good things about it. As a matter of fact we were initially inclined to enroll our son on St. Matthews, or maybe to apply for a magnet but after a long research we decided to take the assigned school (Hawk Ridge). We feel that is a great school.

I appreciate your input! I am taking a tour next Friday. I am really wondering if they are able to get rid of some of the trailers by next year with the opening of 2 more new schools. We were fortunate bec my son only had 16 kids in his K class this year at Elon. I think one of the reasons I would consider the private route would be because of class size, so I am wondering if that will improve. We'll see.

Anytime, I'd love to see smaller class group. I believe this groups are in the low 20s.
