WOW!!! This is an amazing neighborhood school! My daughter has attended this schools for over two years now and I cannot rave enough about it. The faculty here provide quality education in wonderful classroom settings. My daughter went from being below grade level average to exceeding it in one years time. If your child is fortunate enough to live in the area assigned for this school, thank your stars!

This school is mean! They give too much homework to 6 through 8 grade students and never have time to enjoy themselves. They have to wear a uniform and 1. are not comfortable in, 2. ugly. These kids would like to have more freedom at home im sure and they always stay home and do homework.. what is the point of a weekend when they are still doing homework the whole time. The school toilets are always flooding and they always give an attitude. The kids need NO UNIFORMS, LESS HOMEWORK,AND RESPECT! Because if you want respect then you better give them respect too! Thank you! Horrible school!

I truly believe this school is amazing and did a lot into preparing me for high school. I've just graduated this year and I'm currently attending Walter Payton College Prep one of the city's top performing high schools along with eight other students that graduated alongside me. I've attended Healy since kindergarten. The teachers and staff are very supportive and devoted in bringing the best out of each student. I graduated out of the gifted program but I've not been in the program since first grade. I was given the chance to join the gifted program in 6th grade and I am very glad I had. Though it was challenging at first, my standardized test scores saw an improvement. The gifted program at Healy is wonderful; coming out from the eighth grade gifted class from room 214 many of the material taught by the current teacher is almost no different from the high school level I am being thought now, therefore I was not surprised or overloaded with work I was not familiar with or did not know how to handle when I entered my high school classes. If your child is able to enter the gifted program at Healy, I highly recommend it!

Personally I think this school is great. Im currently still there in the Gifted Program. The regular class is not easy for some people and if you join the gifted program later in the year, it okay just ask some of my friends in room 214. Plus the teachers will not be mean to you unless you get on their nerve and will try to help you if they notice your grades falling or if you ask for help.

A mostly dedicated staff who are willing to do whatever it takes to help students at all academic levels. A very involved new principal, a focus on expanding the learning environment, a dedication to both the amazing gifted program and the academically rigorous regular ed program all make Healy a standout among neighborhood schools. You'd never realize that in a school this size (over 1300--I think) that the education my two children receive could be so individual and specific. Additionally, the ethnically diverse population is perfect--my kids are exposed to numerous cultures on a daily basis--Highly recommended.

Most of the teachers are dedicated to the teaching. A little of them are not. From last semester, the new principal is very active and I feel my 5th and 7th grader is more supported by the new teacher and new curriculum.

I went to Healy for a little over a year, and graduated there. Honestly, it's pretty bad Regular classes were way to easy, and my personal advice, don't ever even think about going into gifted unless you started from the beginning. The people were so mean, even the teachers. They won't accept you. During my one and only year in gifted, I don't remember how much I cried in a corner alone. I was new to the city, and furthermore the school. It was horrible. In the end, I've gotten into a really good High school, but I wouldn't say Healy did anything at all to help me. If I've stayed there longer, my life would probably be ruined.

The Healy staff and parents have committed themselfs in all levels to better the education and well being of our children. I personally have witnessed and involved myself in this task. I truly recommend Robert Healy Elementary School. Thank you.

The academic programs at Healy are quality programs. They have bilingual education in Chinese and Spanish. They have music and art as part of their daytime curriculum. Their art department is quite strong. A majority of the students at Healy are Chinese; they work very hard and have a great attendance record. The parents are exceptionally involved and supportive.
