Haugan has a really good gifted program. My daughters are going there.1st and PK. Their teachers are excellent. I don't know about the others, and the new principal is good, I think it is getting better

Haugan has been a school of utmost quality. The teachers are caring and always willing to work to meet the needs of the children. I have a fourth grade daughter there and have learned that she is doing well because of her teachers.

In my experience, this school has a wonderful gifted program. The teachers are dedicated and let parents know what's going on in the classroom. Starting this year, Haugan no longer is Pre-K to 8, it is Pre-K to 6th, due to the middle school that was built two blocks away. Where I feel the school is lacking is in extracurriculars and technology. Sometimes my children would have a paper due that had to be done on a word processor. That was fine for us, as we have a computer and printer. Some of my children's friends didn't, though, and the school didn't offer students much of a chance to complete their assignments using the school's computers and printers. (Not a good situation if the teacher requires assignments to be word processed and printed out.)

During the time i was in thi school, i loved it. I dont know what these people are saying about the teachers, because they were all awesome. In all my eight years of elementary school this was the best one. The teachers are always involved. There are more sports and extracurricular activities here then anywhere else.

How can parents say this is a good school? 12.3% of the teachers are not even qualified to teach these children. Do you want your child in that teacher's classroom. I don't. What is wrong with the chicago public schools that they even allow them to teach in the first place. What is your child going to learn?

Haugan Elementary School is a wonderful school. The activities are sports and homework help. I think that the homework help program is a great after-school activity because it's especially for children that need extra help with any schoolwork, and it's very important for kids everywhere to understand their studies and not get left behind. And the sport activities are good also because it's just what kid's that have nothing to do after school need. And it also keeps them moving and in shape. Of course, there is also pajama-day, crazy-hair day, twin day, bear's day, and much more! And for the students, it's always a lot better to go to a school that is strict but not too strict so that the children can enjoy it. And when you enjoy something you do a lot better on it and will succeed!
