I am impressed with what I have seen over the years. Discipline is enforced yet the students still have freedom to be creative. Sports events are organized. They have a winning and growing FFA Organization that has made the town of Malone very proud. Their test scores are average or above. It is a small town so therefore it is a small town school. The teachers are friendly and cooperative. I have lived here 14 years and have heard more praise than complaint from the parents whose children are succeeding there. Most of the complaints I have heard are from parents whose children stay in trouble. A school is not there to "raise" a child.. they are there to educate them. Malone is doing its job and doing it well.

Malone is a great school to send your kids. Who ever tells you Mrs. Hall does not care is terribly wrong I am a student and know Mrs. Hall and she is a great person and goes out of her way to help students. If she doesn't care about students why is Malone the only school in Jackson County with a parent liason who checks on students and gives reviews to Mrs. Hall personally. Malone is a school where everyone is welcome there are no bullies no drug deals at schools like a certain purple and gold school, the teachers are like friends and family and their only concern is our education. They love their jobs. The school has gone through repairs and they looks great. The gym looks better than most gyms in the county now. If you send your kids to malone they won't be a student id.

Malone High School is a great school for your children to attend. I have multiple kids currently attending and would not send my children anywhere else. The teachers not only love teaching but love children as well.

I think Malone is a great school but not all the teachers here care for the students and thier education. The principal is not a great principal but the assistant is a great one


Posted June 12, 2008

Malone was once a great school to attend to because of the great teachers concerns for the students. Now the teachers are either very old or very young, there are no African-American teachers. There is a very high number of African-American students. Linda Hall has no concerns for the safety and welfare of the students, she does not register parent complaints. The young inexperienced teachers are afraid of the students and therefore do not care if they are educated or not. I feel that Malone School is essentially good for being an elementary school and should otherwise be closed or used as a daycare or community center because all of the teachers are from the Malone area anyways. The school is very old and needs to be repaired. I suggest using the taxpaxers dollars wisely, send the students to Marianna.

Malone is an excellent school to send your children, Principal Linda Hall is a true educator, and her whole existence is improving our school. Asst. Principal Doug Powell moved his athletic leadership skills from the court to the administration role and is going to be a great principal that will make the news for how well his schools will perform. Teacher Mrs. Benton has my 6 year old Down's Syndrome child in her room and has never complained, never asked for him to be moved, and has taught my child more than he ever could have learned had he not been mainstreamed. I also have a 17 year old, and a 14 year old there that have been prepared for the world due to the teacher's love of education. Thanks for all that each of you does at Malone School. Your the best. Malone Town Councilman Randy Ward

Coming from a big city Malone was an adjustment for both myself and my children. I found some teachers who are just their to get a pay check and others who have devoted themselves to the children. I dont think malone school is ready to become hitech yet mrs hall I feel is doing her best to try and make some great improvements but this is a town that does not like change. My biggest concern is pe. terry bergman

Malone School is an excellent small town school. Although because of its smallest(which is part of what makes it great) the school is unable to provide a variety of extracurricular activities.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
