This is an excellent school with great programs, including the national champions robotics team, marine biology, sports ect.. A safe and creative learning environment. My kids love going here.
Students that attend Carl Hayden say the school is "ghetto" but it really isn't I'm currently a student attending Carl Hayden the teachers and staff care so much about our education that they make all kids that have an F in a class attend the Star program witch helps students that have bad grades and the students aren't all that bad at all but I know we have more pros than cons about this school .
I am an a former student c/o 2010! I attended C.H.H.S. since sophomore year. Wehn i first entered that school , i was nervous because of the history it had, but during my three years attending it, i learned that it was all talk. Carl Hayden was a very nice experience. My teachers were always very nice and excellent at their job. I strongly reccomend for any new attending students to join in on any of its after school programs to make their high school more memorable. Big hello to my former teachers and my councelors :)
this school deserves a 5 for having such determined student and fun learning programs such as robotics and band
I am a ex student and the school was a very good school and the teachers really care
Students behave well. Teachers are very dedicated, even though they are strected too thin. There are more elective classes now offered.Counselors are helpful.
The xtracarricular activities at this school are a bit weak, due to no student participation. teachers are streched a bit thin. parents seem to not want to get involved.
I am a parent of two falcons and they are very aware of the reputation that their school holds however this not stop them from put all their energy and hearts into this school. No the AIMS or the STANDFORD 9 scores may not be the highest but lets look at the good for once. Carl Hayden has two of the best programs in the US (Computer Science & Marine Biology). The robotics team went to nationals two years in a row. The basketball team made it to playoffs. The student council of the school is very involved and dedicated. They recently won an award of distinction at this years AASC state convention. So come people lets look at the school and be proud it is something we can all make it better instead of making it worse and reflecting on the positive and stop sulking on the negative.
Carl Hayden Had a robotics team that placed 4th out of 58 in the Southern Regional First Robotics Competition and that took then to them to the First Robotics National Competition in Texas. They were one of a half dozen schools in the state to do this and they were the only Phoenix Union High School Dist. school to do this! All with private sponsored funding! This is a great accomlishment!
