Haddon has made positive changes. Their CST score is now 788! They Have a new valet drop off program for students in the morning. Teachers are passionate about teaching and the making the community and school a better place to live and learn. The new permanent principal is actively working with parents and the community to make the school better. The Office staff is very attentive to parents questions and needs. Haddon also has many community agencies collaborating with the children and families to make the school more succesful especially in the areas of safety and helping the children become more aware of college and the hope that they can attend a university.
Haddon needs to raise the CST score. There is a TA that works in Haddon and since a few years ago this TA doesn't give respect to the children until now. A lot of parents want to change the principal because she doesn't work hard.
the teachers were great when i was attending now my youngest sister is in 5th grade and her teahers seem really cold hearted, her fourth grade teacher wouldnt share her tissues because they were "hers". her kindergarden teachers stare was painful, the people in the office have been there and have no respect for students on one occasion one of the ladys was on an inappropiate website while a student was there waiting to get picked up to go home. on the phone theyre really rude the new principle is worried about what theyre eating outside of school instead of watching whats coming out of the school cafeteria, peanut butter and jelly isnt a meal
Staff at haddon avenue elementary school are somewhat helpful but tend to lack warmth and compassion towards its students.In addition, many of the playground staff that help to organize students every morning when the school bell rings, often use a high tone with children when not needed, rather than to use positive reinforement to correct minor infractions by students. On more than one occassion it has become evident that 'some' teachers and school staff members may benefit from participating in child development courses in order to better serve its population.
