I have a 8th grade and a 4th grader at Neil Hafley. I love this school. Any problems I have they are right on top of it. The teachers have always responded to me in a timely manner. The ladies in the office are always more then helpful. Especially Mrs. Mattos in the front. She always welcomes me when I walk threw the door. And she seems to remember every ones kids. Which is very reassuring. The only thing I wish this school would do is make the student to teacher ratio smaller. They have way to many combo classes
I have 2 children who graduated from Neil Hafley and 1 that is still is still going. I love the school, the teachers are awesome and staff/principal are amazing. My kids have been comfortable and successful at this school. I have volunteered for over 5 years. The opportunities are there and welcome. My kids are welcome there even as high schoolers for any help with their studies by former teacher. Ladies in office are awesome as well. Never had an issue at Neil Hafley. They are definitely always looking for needed improvement. Fabulous school!!!!!
I THINK NEIL HAFLEY IS BY FAR 1 OF THE BEST SCHOOLS IN MANTECA ...I WAS A STUDENT THERE KINDERGARDEN THREW 8TH GRADE AND IT WAS A BLAST .... THEY HAVE THE AWESOMEST TEACHERS THE NICEST OFFICE STAFF AND BEST PRINCIPLES.....THE TEACHERS DONT JUST EXPLAIN THE WORK THEY MAKE IT FUN AND ENJOYABLE...IF UR LOOKIN FOR A GOOD SCHOOL FOR UR CHILD ID STICK WITH THE ~NEIL HAFLEY HAWKS ~
My son went to this school and was in the SDC class, the teacher was ok the Vice principle is Horrible she is rude she doesn't return calls she talked to my kid like she was family she went overboard... one of the ladies in the front with the blonde hair is rude and has to much attitude, this school was ok but those two people need to be replaced!!!
My children transferred to and began the '05/'06 school year at Neil Hafley - and I am extremely pleased with all aspects of the school! I am very impressed by the amount of parent/teacher communication! My daughter was blessed to have such an amazing teacher as Mrs. Abernathy last year! Mrs. Abernathy is truly a gift of an everlasting and wonderful impression to our children. My son was equally fortunate to have Mr. Oliveria as his teacher. Mr. O is able to mix structure with a sense of relaxed atmosphere. I was extremely pleased with his 'personal attentiveness to each child as an individual' as well as his 'disciplined and stern expectations of the kids'. I think that Neil Hafley is an all around great school!
Neil Hafley has a fantastic Principal who cares about the children. The teachers and staff are wonderful and put the time into teaching the children not only academically but by showing how much they care. They make the kids want to learn and have a respect for learning.
