My daughter attends kindergarten at Hobson. We have been very pleased with the school's loving atmosphere. The curriculum is wonderful. My daughter is reading and writing at the level of a child who has completed first grade.

Hobson is one of the only schools in the area to offer half-day kindergarten. My daughter is one of 10 children in the kindergarten class. Kindergarten is the best in town at Hobson: the teacher, class size, facilities, safety, and loving environment are top-notch. Both my children have attended Hobson since they were 2 years old. The preschool programs are wonderful, teachers excellent. I can't recommend this school highly enough!

I taught at Hobson for 8 years, and I can truly say that it is one of the best preschools around!! The staff all work together to make the school the best that it can be, and they are VERY careful about who they hire...making sure that they have the 'Hobson attitude'...which is a genuine love for children with a desire to help the children grow to be the best they can be. The cleanliness of the school is top- notch and the learning centers are changed frequently to keep the children interested and constantly learning without being pressured. Hobson is an excellent school without a doubt!

Hobson is a wonderful school. My daughter enjoys going there everyday, and she has learned so so much. The quality of the school is the best. My husband and I recommend this school to any parents who have a preschooler.

This school is tops! They really make the children feel loved. The teachers are well trained and the room learning centers are very organized, as is their schedule. My husband and I feel so blessed to have found this school. Thank you Hobson!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
