I am highly looked down upon in this school and the teachers seem to not care about their jobs. Only one teacher has ever tried to encourage me and it was Miss Hoffmann. She is by far the best teacher there. BTW im a student

My son will be starting his final year at Haines and has truly enjoyed everything thus far from the teachers, to the students and the coaching staff for his various activities. Haines is a great school who cares about the student.

I am currently a student at HMS. I'm in the advanced Language Arts program and find it challenging but fun at the same time. There has been one teacher in particular that we have had problems with, but I don't think that should affect the overall rating of Haines. He is a Math teacher that lacks communication skill and just doesn't seem like he likes his job. I'm sure that he won't be at the school much longer. I'm very pleased with the Student Support staff as they have been very helpful to many students including myself. Mrs. Gehrig has been exceedingly helpful to go out of her way to solve any problems we might have. My favorite teacher is Mrs. Crowe on team 7-1. She obviously loves her job and does is very good at explaining new concepts to all of her students. Overall, Haines is a wonderful school!

We are very happy with the extracurricular clubs, sports and professional attitude and friendly culture of Haines. My true concern is with the gifted program and particularly math.

Slow moving in updating curriculum. Lacks commitment to communicate to parents. Some tenured teachers allowed to slide with out accountability. Slow moving in providing services to students that need gifted academics, LD support and BD support.

I am currently a 7th grade student at Haines, and if I do say so myself, that the school is great. They have wonderful AT (Advanced) classes, and the teachers are very understanding, and if not to add too much, they are one of the nation's blue ribbon schools!

I believe the new principal is very professional and good. The school is somewhat overcrowded, note the temp school classrooms. Several bills to increase monies to add classrooms have failed in St. Charles. The teachers can be tough, but the system allows parents to communicate with individual teachers easily (internet etc.) Extra curricular activities are plentiful, something for everyone. Overall, a very nice middle school.

One Word: An acedemic achievment of a great school, with polite kids full of courtesy and leadership. Alliterated with remarkable teachers and stupendously supreme educational programs and schoolwork.

I have been very pleased with the acedemic program and the quality of the teachers. One negative of Haines relates to the lack of racial/religious diversity and Haines' ability to effectively manage issues that arise in this regard.

I currently have 1 child (a 6th grader) at Haines and although it is a very overcrowded school with many portables to accommodate the overflow I feel that my child is getting a good education and the teachers seem to care a great deal about my child's success. The children in general are very polite and courteous when I have been there. I am very happy with the entire 303 system so far.
