My daughter just finished her Kindergarten year at Haleyville Elementary School and I have no complaints. Clear and concise communication between home and school, excellent encouragement programs, good teacher/student ratio, very safe campus. I am 100% pleased with every aspect of this first year.

My daughters first year was wonderful,the teacher was so caring & compassionate it was a blessing to have her helping with the transitional period of my child's life.We are now in the 2nd year and I have to say I have been slightly disappointed My daughter wasn't doing as well this year and when trying to meet with the teacher to see if there was anything I could do to help the meeting was so rushed that we ended up with miscommunications that didn't get cleared until the parent teacher conference rolled around weeks later.On more than one occasion I have felt that the office personal were short and not near as friendly as other schools I have visited. The educational standards are high at Haley ville but it is important that parents feel welcome and properly informed these are areas I feel they could improve on.

Haleyville Elementary is a school where all students are welcome. The teachers give 120% and are always willing to help. The school's character is easily visible in their kindness and compassion club, the way the students and teachers bind together to give help to their fellow students/teachers when needed and the way they treat each other. That along with the high achievement makes for a great school!

HES is a very good school. The overall system is exceptional. Most parents make positive comments. There are always some who will have negative feelings about their children's education at one time or another. The process is complex and covers many years of their young lives. Every school system goes through ups and downs. What is important is that all Haleyville schools strive to improve and work with every level of input from teachers, parents, staff, boards, etc. to get the best for our children whether in kindergarten or a senior. I am happy to be a graduate (1976) and happy to have a son graduate (1998) and happy to have a granddaughter on track to graduate in 2019. Great job Haleyville Schools!

Haleyville Elementary School is the best!! Through great leadership from our superintendents over the years, all of our schools are working toward the same goal as to better educate ALL students. We have a Renaissance program that does reward good grades, good behavior and good attendance. The kids love the program!! Students attend sock hops, dance days, ice cream socials, a movie at the theater and even a lunch with the principal. The program is all about helping the students to work toward doing their best at all times.

Smaller class sizes for the younger grades. My daughter only has 15 in her class which I think is great.

The problem with Haleyville Elm. School is the way they treat the students. The Enrichment Program is designed to give the students with the highest grade point averages extra privilages. That may sound good in theory, but in reality, it also tends to make the average and below average students feel less important. Giving rewards for doing well is a good idea! I agree with that! I just think the way this school is doing it is wrong! To identify students with all A's or all A's and B's they give out different colored bracelets. Then they send home memos to all students letting them know that blue bracelets gets to go to the movies, and red bracelets gets to have a pizza party. The kids with no bracelet gets nothing. In my opinion, all children should feel important. I believe this is why alot of good kids go bad!

This is a great school that is strongly supported by its community. It teaches the students much more than just the standards.
