I love Hartsfield because there are lovely teachers that teach you a lot of new things, and lovely people at Hartsfield like Ms. Vickers and Dr. Flanagan. I want to work at Harstfield one day when I get older!
You should go to Hartsfield because it is a good school. It is a school where teachers care about you and are very helpful. The students are kind and the staff are sweet.
I love Hartsfield because it makes me feel like I belong and that I’m cared about. Hartsfield does the most for us and makes sure we learn all that we can. I feel loved because the teachers and staff make sure that we are safe and happy. All the teachers and staff are nice to you and that makes me feel like I belong
Hartsfield is a place where we gather thoughts together. We love each other; we do fun things; we wish well our classmates that are not in school; it is an amazing school. We have nice teachers and we do it with heart and soul
I recommend Hartsfield because of the incredible care from teachers. This school does a great job involving the community, and I love the community that the school is building.
I have had to move a lot, and finally settled into Indian Head - but my nine-year old daughter has had to switch so many schools and hated so many of them. I was worried she would always hate school, because she never felt at home anywhere. Hartsfield is the FIRST time she actually told me: "Dad, I like school!" You can't judge a school primarily on its test scores. Hartsfield is wonderful!
We have loved our experience at Hartsfield. Our son is now in 1st grade there. I especially love the balance - outdoor time, arts, computer time, and classroom. Every adult at Hartsfield CARES, from the principal to the custodians. And the teachers are creative in their methods, really pushing the kids to think and be a positive part of society.
I think Hartsfield has the best teachers, playgrounds, and classrooms. I also like the library because every time I step in the library, I know I’m going to find a good book! When I go to art I feel so happy, when I go to music, I am overjoyed; when I go to P.E. I feel like running and kicking a ball. The teachers I like because they are nice and the classrooms are nice and big. I like the garden club because we get to plant and harvest and we get our own corner of a garden.

Hartsfield Elementary School serves students and families in the Indian Head Community. Our community has a long history associated with the Seminole Indians. The streets have authentic Seminole names ending with Nene, which means trail. Three ceremonial mounds containing Indian artifacts were discovered when the community was being built in the early 1950s. Hartsfield is named after former Leon County School Superintendent Francis S. Hartsfield, Sr. We're proud to represent our community and its history, while building a brighter future for residents of Indian Head.
