Hackett is a small school in a small town. That has its perks and its drawbacks. However, in comparison to Mansfield and Greenwood Schools, Hackett is the best in teaching the children overall morals. The teachers deliver educational material in a direct hands on manner, thus the children get a one on one experience at times. Finally, the best thing about Hackett Elementary is they do not hide thier children with disabilities. They do their best to include them in all areas of the school. Greenwood and Mansfield separate children with disabilities in all areas of learning, including recess.

I was not pleased at all with what I witnessed at this school. The extra programs the students are suppose to attend are cancelled on a regular basis which doesn't seem fair for the children since that is part of their learning. The students aren't taught all subject cores such as science and social studies, all that is taught is reading and math which are the only areas the school seems to care about because of the yearly benchmark tests that the state grades the school on. On the overall of this school I think they can do a lot better to teach students and prepare them for their future.

I am sure that we could all say negative things about our school system's'. But the overall picture is this, You want you children to have the best education and for most of us , we want that education to be better than what we had. Its hard to go through roughly 18 years and 12 grades without any difficulty whatsoever. Showing patience and understanding would be a greatway to teach you children the same. We, as parents are all too often so quick to take to our childrens defense that we forget sometimes to do or say the right thing and they inadvertently learn the opposite of what we and the teachers/school is trying to teach them. Lets remember that we are all on the same side....our childrens future thank you.

I have a child in this school and my husband is an alumni of the school. I am not totally pleased with the grade school principal. I feel I know my child better than he does, but he insisted on telling me what was best for my child. I am, although, pleased with the teachers and other administration of this school.

I am a graduate of this High School and I am proud to say my 3 children attend this school as well..there are a few things that could be improved but overall it is a small school and i feel children need that small school enviroment. Everyone knows everyone and that helps keep kids out of trouble.

I also am disappointed in this school system some of the teachers only are concern with the higher class children in the school if your child is not a somebody at the school you might as well forget it then, I dont care for the principal he seems to not have a lot of knowledge of his surroundings.

I am very disappointed with the teaching at this school. I have two children that attend Hackett Elementary. I was shocked to hear that the Principal and his staff discontinued Science and Art last year so the teachers could spend more time teaching the students about how to pass the Benchmark Tests! I am pulling my children out of this school because I feel like the education they are recieving is on a very poor standard. When I spoke to the Principal, he did not seem concerned that my children were not learning at the level they should be. He was more concerned about getting the Benchmark Test Scores up so the school would avoid consolidation. Overall... This school is an example of why American Kids are behind other countries of the world in knowledge and education!
