I am altering my review from a couple of years ago to reflect efforts being made between then and now. The lack of parking is still a problem, but they have been actively trying to streamline the drop-off process to address the issue of kids being late to class due to being stuck in the traffic line. The biggest problem is related to district funding and not prioritizing access to transportation. Those who live within a mile are still not offered school buses in the winter (meaning children as young as five, and often their younger siblings and parents/grandparents walk a mile both ways- even on days deemed too dangerously cold for 15 minutes of outdoor recess). The district definitely needs to step up and deal with its transportation problems, but I recognize that Hall School probably has little say in that. Considering the need for adequate funding, and the great diversity of needs of the children at Hall Elementary, they do a great job of working with individual students. The teachers are very high quality, and the principal is very friendly and helpful.

Hall is an amazing elementary school with a lot of heart. They teach to the child, not the test which is probably the ironic reason they got an "F" from the governor. I would certainly rate the building and facility an "F". This school year starting with a fire and relocation couldn't have helped either. Regardless, the building is filled with dedicated educators who make personal connections with students every day. All three of my children went through Hall School and the oldest is away studying at Dartmouth right now.

My son has grown more at Hall that I could have imagined. Dedicated teachers and a wonderful environment. He came from a pricey private school and I found a much better fit for him at Hall. I can't say enough about the Reading Recovery Program and his teachers!!

I went here; it was great! Be sure to check out the Many Rivers programme which is a 1-2 and 3-5 multi-graded school within a school with a creative and innovative approach towards learning.
