I do not understand how the gifted program works in this school. My son is now in third grade and he has been attending this school since first grade . In the SAT of both , first grade and second grade, he got 99 in Math(which is the highest possible score) and 95 in Reading . At the end of both courses, his regular grades were straight A's. However, every time we went to the school (because they never contacted us) to ask about the possibility of him entering into the program they gave us a different explanation. Last year, they told us that it was too late to begin with the process, now, that they need to take into account the amount of students enrolled into the gifted program in each grade before make any proposal to the district. So, if the gifted group has enough students no other student will be able to enter into the program even though his results could be better of those already enrolled . I think that the school does not have a transparent and fair policy about this program.
please call at district office at 305 499 5050 and let them know so they can take care of it
My three kids go to this school and i have nothing but good experiences both teachers, administrative staff and students. This is the first year i am home full time and i have beend at the school in many occassions and i have wonderful relationships with my kids' teachers. Ms. Leon-Rodriguez, Ms. De Dios, Ms. Marrero, Ms. Sanchez, Ms. Carranza, Ms. Hernandez and Ms. Garcia are aweeesome! They are dedicated, easy to talk to, they are always thinking about the well being of my children and all the kids and the minute they see something not right they let me know so we can work together to fix it. I really love this school. Ms. Menchero, the Principal and the assistant principals, Ms. Gil and Ms. Rose are always there to help me and all the parents. Many of the parents that i have talked to, have excellent comments about the efficiency, dedication and personal touch they give to any issue they might have had with their kids. I recommend this school 100%.
Im giving it one star because this school is very bad. The principal is the only nice person there and some other teachers but the children... They bully and bother everyone and they keep on doing it which is why it is impossible to ignore them... The food is not that healthy and good the lunch is messy the school is dirty they make the kids sit on dirty floors which my kid comes with dirt on his pants everyday . The gifted has the only normal people in it pther classes are horrible but not because of the teachers because of the kids. If you dont want your child being one of the bully or crying everyday dont ever choose this school!
This school is amazing. Amazing campus, professionalism everywhere. Also, unlike most schools the faculty and staff are actually nice, caring, and responsible for our school. I highly recommend this school because it welcomes all races and cultures
This school is the best one ever I am in 5th grade and I am having a wonderful year I have been here since kindergarten. I love you Hadley.
This school has the worst manners and professionalism i have ever seen. I called up the school to find out some information for my son, when i called the operator welcomed me to the school then continued to talk to whoever she was talking to in the office completely ignoring me. I just want to warn everyone that they should be ready to deal with some of the rudest people in FL i hope after this year i have nothing to do with this school and i am very disappointed in the action of the receptionist
I went to Hadley 2nd-5th grade it is Amazing extreme security and once there was a delincuent 100 ft from the school and within 2 minutes the school was on lockdown.the children are friendly and there is no bulliying whatsoever . Your child will be happy here and The principal Mrs.Menchero has amazing leadership and Mrs.Gil And Dr.Guold Are Amazing Vice principals!Hadley Is Amazing!
I think is the Best School in Miami, Dade. My son & daugther go there, ones in 4th and the other in kinder, The teacher are great, and very understanding!
Charles R. Hadley has been the best experience ever for my daughter, GABRIELA OLEAGA. I can t ask for more. She has been able to succeed and explode her full potential. The teachers are great and very caring. Their gifted programs is excellent and even thou there is a lot of homework at times, I believe is for the benefit of the child. As for those parents who are complaining about the school, it might be because they want their kids to be babied, they are not there to play they are there to learn, discipline is a key to success. We will miss the entire staff, since my daughter is graduating this year! Thank you for 6 fabulous years of good standard and great education!!!
THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL IN MIAMI. PLEASE PUT YOUR CHILD IN ANOTHER SCHOOL. HERE ARE THE WORST TEACHERS IN MIAMI .
My two children attended this school since pre-k - 5th grade is excellent school teachers are dedicated to outstanding students are the responsibilities of each child s really give them 5 stars because the institution has won it
My two kids are there since preschool and is an excellent school for the attention you give to students, the teachers are patient and helpful my first son is graduating this year but I've got two there and my two nephews are like from the preschool so far not had any problems there .... they recommend
great school.....there where always somebody to help me when I need it....My child's teacher was Mrs. Leon-Rodriguez. She is the best..always worry about the education and progress of my son....I'm glad my son had it as a teacher.
My son is a 2nd grader at Charles R Hadley. He has been bullied the majority of the year. Even though I have discussed it many times with his teacher and now school counciler and principle it continues. They blame him because he stands out do to his long hair and said it should be cut, he doesnt look like the other boys. His teacher and counciler have even called him 'annoying' to my face! There are so many problems that I have experienced with this school this year theres just not enough room on this page to list it all. The experience this year has been very disapointing.
My daughter, Rhina Lara, attended this school from K-5th and she will always cherish the education she received at this school. I want to say thanks to Mrs. Falcon, Mrs. Argain and Mrs. Mena, Mrs. Placeres and Mrs. Miranda (retired), Mrs. Rivero and Mrs. Valle, Mrs. del Valle and Mrs. Gonzales, and wonderful Mr. Gans. My daughter was in the SABER program and later became Gifted. I have to say that this school was a safe haven and she made life-long friendships. I'm proud to say that she is now going to highschool and she still uses many of the advices that her CRH teachers gave her.
this school is sooooo good! the teachers are great expecially the new principal and the students always behave (except sometimes in the cafeteria) :D
My oldest girl got into Middle School after Charles R. Hadley, I would say yes, very proud kids graduated from CR Hadley they are very well prepared to face all the challenges from Middle school, whenever teachers ask to do a task of any kind, guess who accomplised first, and help tutoring other kids who came from other schools. Also our Principal is the most active member, she was always on top of all activities, parents meetings, etc. A+ 4her
There are no such 15 students per teacher. No encouragement for kids or rewards. Other schools has more activities for the students and teachers. 2006-2007 year was awful experience for my child with a 30 student classroom and careless teachers. The whole year she was a trouble child and at the end she got a gifted child invitation for a test. How you explain that?
My daughter attended K - 5 grade and just graduated over the summer. Charles Hadley was an exceptional elementary school and stepping stone. I found the Principal and teachers to be very supportive and encouraging. This is an 'A' school and they work very hard to maintain their high standards. The environment was safe and nurturing. Assemblies and meetings were a challenge though for parking, seating and punctuality - meetings rarely started on time. Also, because the community is bilingual, all gatherings were conducted in 2 languages which at times, was very frustrating.
