My son just started Kinder at Haley this year. We are super happy! There are so many choices for schools and we know we picked the right place ! We don't have any complaints. Great staff! And his teacher really cares about the students and is a hard worker! The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. The principal is great too! We love Haley!

Teachers like Mrs. Birch and Mrs.Conrad and Mrs. Lapham are what make this school not just good...but spectacular. I know the school had some growing pains in the beginning. Yes, over the years I've seen the school spirit go from "luke warm" but now it is sparkling with school spirit. The PTO has done a fantastic job of boosting the school spirit. The front office ladies are always so pleasant and so kind. Truly a school full of ...not perfect people...but people who genuinily care and seem to enjoy working there.


Develops character: Agree

I really feel like everyone there is tring their best to connect with the children. We had Mrs. Birch for Kindergarten and I don't think my son will ever get the privalege of being taught by someone who cared as much about his character development as well as his academic. We also had Mrs. Conrad for 5th. She instilled a confidence in our son he has never had. This is because she accepted him and pointed out his strengths and genuinley cared about him. He soared. I know it is because of great teachers like these that make great schools great! I LOVE the school spirit and the connection and overall feel of the entire school.

The Haley atmosphere is always positive. I have three boys that attend Haley with all different needs. All my boys teachers offer support inside and out of school. It is not unlikely to come across a email or note home about how my children are doing or something silly they did or something encouraging etc. Importantly the school is always clean and the staff outside of the teachers are always so nice to deal with. Thank you Haley staff you help mentor, inspire, and create wisdom in my children.

Having been around the school since it has been opened, I have to say - I truly think the school is doing the best that they can. Is everything perfect - no. It takes a community to teach our children. Everyone has a hand in that success. When I read comments of the overly negative - I wonder who they are writing about. Former employees usually don't have extremely positive things to say (why are they former employees?). Messages to parents are a tricky one. Do you really want to hear the message? Teachers have witnessed parents react negatively to the teacher because of the message. "There is no way my child would behave that way. Or what did you do to have my child react that way?" Almost all teachers are there to do the very best for all of the students in their classroom. I am happy that Haley is continuing to strive to do their best. Not afraid to try some new things. Is there more that can be done? Yes. Get involved with the school. At the very least, get involved with helping make the education of your child be the best that it can be.

If you're considering work at CUSD as an SLP, run the other way very fast!!!

This is our 4th year at Haley Elementary. We love everything about this school. It is wonderful to have a small town feel in a not so small town. Somehow Haley has managed to keep the class sizes small, the parental involvement high, and the overall atmosphere friendly and warm. My children are thriving within this environment. They come home bubbly and excited every day. They look forward to going to school every morning and become remorseful when going on summer break. The teachers really become connected to their classes just as if they were family. I can not say enough positive things about our wonderful experiences at Haley Elementary. I am so thankful to be a part of this school.

My son has been going to Haley since it opened. Now, both my kids are at Haley and we are very happy. The teacheres are dedictated to their learning. The programs are exceptional. I have read some prior reviews and agree with the assessment about the principal, but because I've never had issues, I've never really dealt with her. I think that school is what you make of it. I volunteer, so I learn more about my kids. I support the classrooms, so I know they kids are getting what they need. I'm very anti-charter school, so I'm so glad I love Haley!

My last review never got posted. Kind of a vanilla/cookie cutter school, BUT we've loved my daughter's teachers and she loves school. She has learned so much in her short time there. Only complaint I have is that my daughter comes home every day telling me how much sugar she has at school. We rarely eat sugar treats and only on certain occassions. District/school/teachers need to use healthier options or switch to a different reward.

Speaking of the staff...I like some of the teachers. Others are not so great, are unfriendly, and generally immature.
