Hale is the best in the Valley! The teachers are receptive and responsive, the administration is (extremely) helpful, and the students, well, they shine! My kids have flourished in this school from day one! Though academics are important to the administration, you can tell that they also care about character development in these students. And though every school has bullying issues, I can't begin to cover how wonderful the Dean and the staff work with these kids to quell the bullying. You can tell that every adult (teachers, staff, and parents) genuinely care about these kids. I couldn't be more proud to be a Hale parent!

We have two children at Hale. The MISIS system has been an absolute disaster for counselors, teachers, parents, and students alike. However, the staff at Hale seriously has to be given props for handling it all with professionalism and positive attitudes. This is a school that really cares about it students and getting things right. I can't think of any other middle school I would rather have my kids attending.

This school is ok.There are some teachers that care about the effectiveness of their teaching and some teachers that can not grasp the big picture themselves. There are some very nice options for electives that children can be very excited about. There are challenges with the overcrowding and the teachers claim to be so overworked that they do not even have time to dedicate to truly grading homework. They honor a credit / no credit score for homework, which does very little for a student's learning. It is very easy for children to slip through the cracks in any school, but particularly when teachers are so overwhelmed and do not willingly take on any sort of accountability to make sure that the student understands the most basic concepts of what they being taught. Furthermore, any time there is a student not grasping basic concenpts and failing a class miserably, a parent should be notified. This school considers the 5 week progress report sufficient. If there is no time to maintain proper communication with parents, there is a problem with the school, teacher, and principal. Lines of communication are a two way street. Many kids are cutting themselves for attention & being bullied

I am currently an 8th grade student at Hale. I LOVE IT. I understand everything my teacher teaches. Yes, there is bullying. But, there is not one school that has no bullying. The principal is so nice. My counselor is very kind and helps out a lot. My grade has gone up ever since I moved into this school. I would recommend this school to everyone because the staff and teachers do an outstanding job at everything. Thanks HALE. You are an amazing school and I will miss you when I graduate......

We were above and beyond impressed with my daughter's English/ History teacher last year (Ms. Spoor). She took a personal interest in every student and the kids seemed excited about learning in her classroom. I was also very pleased with the administration when I brought a concern to their attention. They took it seriously and responded within 24 hours and it was addressed immediately.

This school is over crowded and contains undisciplined students. I highly wouldn't recommend this school. I have attended this school for grades 6-8 and wish my parents sent me somewhere else. This school has undevoted teachers and only teaches students CST material to make test scores look good. The only good thing about this school is its diversity and variety of electives and activities.

This is a good school--my son is having a great experience. He has great teachers who care and have good communication. I know what is expected and I can go online and see the homework assignments. He has a set of textbooks at school and at home. There are club activities and others ways for him to be involved--but he has to initiate those involvements. State standards based education and some challenging projects. Class size is large, but well run and managed. Good public education!

I am a former student of Hale. The school is not the best or the worst. Most teachers are great, such as the art teacher Mr.Harbourt. There are also teachers who are not so great, but names shall not be given. The advanced math program is great; geometry is at high school level. This school is good with academics, and while some classes are much harder than others, all teachers teach what needs to be learned.

You become a sheep in a pack and the teachers don't teach. There are a few that are alright... the classes are over crouded. I had one class with 60 students.

The faculty/staff is great and I have been very satisfied with my learning experience. Me and my fellow students at Hale do cuss alot and can get out of hand, but honestly what so you expect from middle school children? Compared to other schools, Hale is excellent and amazing.

This school works best for the very independent, high achieving learner who will be sheltered in the honors or SAS program. For us, Hale has been a big disappointment. My son was in the 6th grade SAS program, which has a strong curriculum. However, due to the large class size and one size fits all teaching methods, he did progressively worse through the year, merely passing when he excels in most core subjects. The homework was excessive, killing his desire to learn, and writing assignments are assessed only for quantity rather than quality. Performance on tests count less than the amount of work submitted. The teachers and I communicated throughout the year, but the process was fruitless and frustrating. When I picked up my son in the schoolyard after school, I observed inappropriate behaviors: cussing, bullying, and sexual flirtations.

I am a student at Hale Middle School. When I first came to this school the environment of the school greatly disappointed me. Everyday I go to school I feel like I'm entering a 'gang' hideout. Not safe at all. Every single day of school I hear at least five cuss words from the students there. The dean apparently cares about the situation, but shows no action toward this behavior. If your child is in SAS in this school it will not make much of a difference. Most of the students at this school are not disciplined, manner-less, and have no respect for other people at all. I regret even signing up for this school. The class sizes are outrageous. If you have high expectation for your child(ren) (i.e. Ivy League graduates) I would recommend any school but this school.

As an active parent I was prepared to shop for a great school for my child. My home school, Hale has provided a wonderful social and academic education. The new smaller learning communities will meet his eighth grade needs. The principal has vision and an amazing, caring staff.

I just had my oldest graduate from hale and my younger child is in sixth grade. I have been so pleased with the school. My kids go on great field trips, the various arts programs are tremendous and the school seems to have the mindset of doing what's best for the kids. Now its true, the culture is that you have to ask the teachers how your kid is doing -- you're not going to automatically get a call that his grade dropped. But when I do ask, I get a call or an email back and the teachers are great about meetings, if I request it. I don't have a problem with this situation -- lord knows the teachers would not be able to call one or two hundred parents everytime a grade drops. I also love the PTA, total class act. Solid academics too.

Worst school my children have ever been to. The teachers are unfair graders and they ruined my child's GPA. One of my children had an A in everything, except P.E., which academically lowered her GPA! It's sports for goodness sake! She didn't run fast enough so they lowered it. For that reason, she didn't make it onto the 4.0 honor roll. I am fed up with how much homework another one of my child has gotten. She was in regular classes and had three hours of homework, which is fine, but it was on Fridays! Horrible!

I searched all around the woodland hills area for the best school for my son and I so glad I chose Hale. The selection and quality of electives is fantastic: drama, band, choir, art, leadership, floristry, guitar, etc...My kid had a hard time deciding! The quality of the academic classes is also on par. The teachers really challenge the kids without loading them with idiotic homework. Some of my friends have chosen other nearby schools and have been dissapointed with the safety and lack of care. This is not the case here.

It's a 100% up to you to get all info regarding progress and ways to get your child through school. Teachers are swamped and they will let you know. Counselors' are reactive and not proactive.

Hale is a wonderful school for children to attend. It gives a wide variety of extracurricular activities. The music program is especially spectacular. Drama performances are also impressive, and are worth seeing. Teachers and staff respond to your inquiries ASAP. Most teachers make learning exciting and fun for the students, causing them to have a feel for learning. Also, much is expected out of the students, enabling them to work hard. Also, the teachers at Hale make sure they cover all the topics needed in the standards. They will also help your children during nutrition or lunch to catch up on things, or to review if they are falling behind. After school tutoring is also available. Hale also has exciting and unique activities and clubs going on. School dances are also common. Overall, Hale Middle School is a wonderful school to attend, and I reccomend it.

If you can send your child elsewhere, do it! Severly overcrowded. Undisciplined kids in an unchecked environment. Too many students in class for a teacher to even learn all their names, much less offer individual attention. My son went from an A-student in elementary school to getting all D's on his first report card at Hale. We changed to a local charter school and he was back to A's in the next semester. The only positive I saw was a nice big field where they herded the kids like cattle for PE.

I am in eighth grade in Hale and happen to be quite pleased with it. Although some teachers could be better, I believe that its a very good school overall compared with other schools in the district. There are some problems with it though. The school has 2200+ students which makes the hallways very crowded and dangerous. Our new principal has added new, fun programs which make school more interesting. There are so many different elective classes to choose from and it would fit and childs ineterests. Most kids in the school are well-behaved and fights are rare. As a gifted student myself, I would highly recommend this school for gifted students.

I formerly attended Hale (graduated in 2003)and had mixed results. Yes, the school is overcrowded and there is not enough one-on-one attention, but that is because of the heavy bussing and large student body. Students should get used to it because El Camino High right up the block runs at double the built capacity. There are adequate teachers at Hale (Dr. Kaplan, Mr. Lundstrum) who truly devote themselves to teaching effectively and making a difference. Because I took only honor programs, The social atmosphere was pretty good and the extracurricular activities were there for the taking. Despite the lack of individual evolvement, I strongly recommend attending Hale to take advantage of the Honors programs.

I would not recommend this school generally, due to the social climate. The girls cant enter the bathrooms with out fear. There are many fights and too much distraction and not enouth one to one attention. There are over 40 kids in most classes and its difficult to even have a teacher call back a parent when you call. It might be great if you child is very independent and wants lots of options/diversity. Not so great if you want a higher standard. I'm speaking about the general level classes only, I dont have experience with the high level honors classes.

My daughter just started Hale for 6th grade and I have been nothing but impressed. The administration was extremely organized, providing us with all pertinent information we needed. She is also a member of the SAS program, for gifted students, and the fact that the gifted kids are separated allows them to advance at a pace not normally found in public schools. The grounds of the school are extremely well maintained, there are excellent extra-curriculars, and the teachers are well qualified and extremely organized. Our initial experience has exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend examining the gifted program, and I would suggest the kids take their lunches because the lines are too long for them to have any time to eat if they buy lunch.

My daughter just graduated 8th grade, Hale was a great experience. She had been in private school previously. We had moved to woodland hills to try a public school experience. She learned more academically at Hale than in any previous year. She was challenged more and had to work harder than in previous years. The teachers work hard and expect a lot from the students. Her social interaction was more varied and allowed her to express herself and find friends more like herself. Although she only had one year at Hale, this was her favorite school experience so far.

My daughter is in her second year at Hale and we are happy with the school. She is in honors classes and her teachers range from good to excellent. She's also in the music program and we're very happy with that too. Like all LAUSD schools there are too many children per class and that makes it difficult for both the children and teachers. However, getting use to crowding is probably something we also need to teach our children. Schools reflect the parents of the children going to them, in this case both the local neighborhood and the wider community. Hale does a good job addressing a diverse group of student but would improve if more parents skipped the private schools and become involved with the public schools. It will be the quality of the public schools that determine the future of California.

Educ. structure is fantastic. Some attending children are bullies. Make sure your child finds a large group of friends. The dean lacks sense of urgency. Make sure you know the chain of power and have a parent directory - for just in case of emergency situations. The schools mission regarding safety for children is a bit off. There needs to be more parental involvement with behavior. They seem as though they are not disciplined.

Horrible! My wife and I have had nothing but negative experiences since my son has been enrolled at Hale. My sons counsler has not been helpful in the least. I've made calls and I've sat face-to-face with her trying to find ways to help my son do his best at Hale, but I have yet to receive any positive help from her what so ever. (For over six months I've tried to get my son on a daily/weekly report program and she still has not followed through. The little 'red' book is a joke!). My wife and I had to make-up our own daily reports to keep trak of our sons progress. The lack of cooperation from the admin. at Hale is very disturbing.

Both of my daughters attended Hale Middle School and it was a wonderful experience for both of them. For the most part the teachers were wonderful and caring. I had immediate fedback form all of my teachers. Mr. Tremonti was one of my daughters music teachers and he helped to change her attitude and desire to attend school. She changed from a mediocre student to a student who graduated with a desire to learn and better herself. From 7th grade on she never had less than a 'B'. El Camino wondered why she hadn't been tracked as an AE student. She went on to graduate from high school as the highest achieving hispanic student in her year. The other daughter was just as successful.

My son went to Hale for the 6th and 7th grade. I cannot tell you what a horrible waste those two years were, to him. His classes were huge, often numbering into the mid to high 40's. There were often not enough desks, and teachers would be hopeful to have a certain percentage of students out ill so that there would be enough desks. Oftentimes, students would sit on the floor. There weren't enough textbooks, and classmates would need to share books. Obviously, the education suffered as a result of the overextended classrooms. My son, literally, barely passed 6th grade, and failed 7th grade. He was moved to a different school (unnamed) and he repeated 7th grade with stellar outcome, and maintains a 3.85 GPA now in 8th grade, on the Dean's Merit list. It is absolutely amazing to me to see the difference in him. We were provided with constant feedback from teachers and administrators about his academic shortcomings, my husband and I were very discouraged. What a difference a good school can make in a child's success and self esteem. Smaller classes and more sympathetic/attentive teachers who are educated and not on 'emergency permits' with substitues galore, is not a good environment for the child that needs a decent education. I did not permit my daughter to attend Hale, fortunately she qualified for a local Magnet program where she is able to succeed at, too. Thanks for reading this, I hope it helps.

We have two students at Hale and the experience has been largely disappointing.

The deans and principal are non-responsive to parental concerns or inquiries.

If I had to give this school a report card, it would get a resounding 'F,' in academics, as well as, leadership. But, according to a teacher last year, '...a fail isn't bad, you still get to go onto the next grade.' This school has not been a positive experience for either of my children. Teachers are aloof. Deans and principal are non-responsive and ineffectual. They like to avoid parental interaction as much as possible. The student body is largely out of control and the administration does nothing. If you have another option for a school, you should use it. This is not a safe environment for students.

Where to start. My son is an excellent student he loves school. His experience at Hale was nothing short of a huge disappointment to all of us. Throughout his entire time there not once was he able to get a chosen elective. We had two teachers who did not call us when asked in a polite letter to discuss my sons progress. One after being told by the school to call said she simply did not have time to call parents. Fights and violent threats were a regular problem. Traffic around the school was very dangerous. My son was grazed once and almost hit a second time by parents hurrying to get around other parents double parked. When I approched the school they said it was not there responsiblity there was nothing they could do and the police had been told before. They posted no authority in front of the school which should have been done. Each day I dropped off my son there I regretted it. I will say one teacher made this school bareable. He was involved, he cared and the kids love him. He is the only bright spot in that school. Mr. Herrerra is one of those teachers every kid needs and we will always remember him.

My daughter complains that there is a fight almost every period and that she does not feel safe on campus. She also notes that there are more than 25 students in all her classes.

Hale has been a wonderful environment for my children. I want to thank Principal Marks for his support and the entire staff for their dedication to the children of Hale Middle School.
