HCMS is a waste of my time.This school is lack in organization and quality.The teachers here are not truly their for the student they're there for a paycheck and to communicate with other colleagues about other students or teachers.I feel if your in a classroom learning another teacher from a whole different classroom shouldn't be able to walk in the classroom and start a full blown coversation interrupting the students.It seems as the teachers don't want to communicate with the parents because they have to scheldue an appointment.Why do you have to scheldue an appointment to see what your child is learning.The teachers are allowed to talk to the students any way in any tone.This school will be a waste of anybody middle school year.
I recently left hms. I was an 8th grader in the 07-08 year. I really didn't like that school, and i think i wasted my middle school years there. I'm in high school now, and i have to say that school didn't prepare us at all. All the teachers talked about was how they thought it was funny that we could possibly fail because of thre mistakes. I don't recommend anyone sending thre child to this school.
My daughter is in her 3rd year (8th Grade) at Hapeville Charter Middle School. I am somewhat pleased with the school and the environment. But I truly believe this school needs to weed out some of the teachers that are there merely for employment. Some of the teacher's behaviors are petty and immature. Teachers have to want to Teach and Nurture Kids, not see their weakness and simply talk down and pass negative situations from teacher to teacher. This school is headed in the right direction and has a good vision. We as parents have to continue to address the teachers that are in all schools for merely employment and not for the Nurturing of our children !!!
The school is great and the principal is wonderful. I was purchasing uniforms for my child and the principal was there and took out the time to speak with me and addressed the uniform policy with my son. Most principals will turn their heads in public and thats only if they know you're a student a their school.
I too was excited about my child going to school, but now I can't wait for the year to be over so that I can withdraw him. The teachers are not good with keeping parents informed until it is to late. The organization of the school not good
I am a parent of the school and it has been a wonderful experience. Charter Schools are not for every parent but has been a blessing to me. If you have time please stop by the school to see for yourself and I promise that you will be happy.
I am very excited about my daughters school year I was welcomed with open arms I volunteer everyday and attend every PTCO meeting They have listened and made changes throughout the body of the school they do have several activities for the kids to participate in I love the one on one support the staff and administration gives when there is a concern the school setting is loving and friendly and open the atmosphere that the school displays is wonderful I have always been invited into the school with open arms and pitch in and help out on the daily basis instead of us complaining lets come together and make things happen for our kids they are always looking for parents to volunteer you can only get out of something what you put into it my daughter will be returning next year and I will return with her everyday helping
I was very excited at first as well. But getting a hands on experience my expectation at this school has rapidly decline because of the lack organization. I do understand that there are problems at all schools;but for a charter school with a lesser amount of students things should should go smoother. However, this is not the case at HCMS. I am very displeased with the way teachers at this school handle certain priorities. This adds a sense of gloom over the entire campus. It is important to keep parents involved and Parent Connect should be enforced. You should a much information possible about your child's progress instead of finding out after the fact. I would recommend anyone to wants to enroll their child at HMCS first come and visit.
This school has turned out to be a great disappointment. At the open house they talked the talk but did not walk the talk. Most of the teachers leaves a lot to be desired. They don't have the children's interest at heart.There is much chaos and unorganization. With good teachers and a good principal, this could have been an excellent school. I'm sorry I wasted a year there from my child's middle school years. The availability of extracurricular activities is practical nonexistent. The administration seems as if they do not want parental involvement.
There is no teacher quality at this school. The teachers do not have control over the students. Each and every time I do a pop up visit I get more and more disappointed. I am very disappointed in this school as a parent and educator.
I was very excited about my child attending this school, but to my dismay, I am very disappointed with this school system. The behavior of the students and teachers towards the students in the classroom seemed to be out of control. My feelings are with Hapeville being a 'charter school' I expected higher standards.
Hapeville is an excellent school that is well diversed. The faculty and staff are caring an always possitive. This school should be ones first option if moving into the community.
This school could possibly be a good school if the teachers and the administration would step up and create a much better enviorment.This school could run head to head with schools in the worst areas of town.
HCMS with some organizing, the support of more parents, and Fulton county school system could become one of the better schools in the area. The teachers who are the backbone of the school needs to be a lot stronger than it is at this time.
HCMS has the ability to be a great school. However the quality of students that attend the school takes away for the great vision that is held by the director and the principle. Discipline is a big issue. Many teachers do not have control of their classroom. Some of the teachers aren't there for the love of teaching children. The environment is not conducive to learning. There is a lack of organization and a lack of support from the GA school system for this charter school. I have visited other schools in N. ATL and they receive full support from the Fulton County System. The parents do not support the school either. I was excited about the school but the thrill is gone.
This school has the opportunity to be a really good school considering the parental involvement. However, I have found it to be very unorganized. The teachers don't seem to be as dedicated as they should. They have a long way to go to be a great school.
