PRO'S: -Very small school. Three to six in a class and at the most 30 in the school. -Everyone's there for a reason so there is no need to feel self conscious. - Great things to do. Jump Street, White water rafting, Farm, volunteering places, Horse back riding, Talent show, Halloween/Christmas party - No stress - psychiatrist/psychologist at the school CON'S: - Horrid academics - Teachers have to keep kids behaved rather then teach - The lunches were disgusting - Kid's get each other going, sometimes make each other worse. - Kid's can throw tantrums. All in all It was a good school, got me back on track and now I am in college.

My niece attended Halcyon and has since transitioned to another school but she loved the staff at Halcyon and they helped so much with her self esteem and attitude. If it was up to her, she would still be at Halcyon but she is doing very well in her new school. My sincere thank you to all of the great staff at Halcyon!!!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
