J Wilbur Haley Elementary School 4

If you had asked me to rate this school last year, I would have given them a much lower score. Principal White has really turned things around as far as the experience my children and I have had. There are some really wonderful teachers (others I think should really find a new profession). It seems so far that the new teachers he has hired are quality educators. I had been considering relocating my family to get away from the problems we had before, but I am optimistic that this improvement will continue and grow.

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.
