Way too many kids getting bused in and they are catering to them too much. Student to teacher ratio is too much. I feel the school is very ghetto and ive noticed my kids acting like the trash thats getting bused in. I will probably be switching schools in the middle of this year because im tired of the BS

This school is horrible. Needs a state review. Only good thing they have going for them is Mrs. Williams 4th grade.

My oldest did wonderfully at this school, but as time as passed I feel like things are just going downhill. There are teachers that are GREAT, you just have to do your research. Others just don't do so well and it is the parent's responsibility to push. Definitely disappointed with the principal and his lack to follow through. Things jsut are not the same anymore and I can't wait to be done with this elementary school.

Haley Elementary has pockets of good teachers in each grade. You need to really watch for the ones who aren't up to standard. We were lucky to have mrs. Barney for two years. She is one amazing educator! out of all of theteachers, she knew what she was teaching and really understood my child and his needs.

Been at Haley for 4 years. This year is not so good. Unorganized class, disruptive students. I do not feel like my son is getting the best education this year. But the rest of the years have been wonderful. I do like the reading programs. And my son likes his class, but not enough 'work' this year in my eyes.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
