I went this school as a child and have lived in the area for years. The teachers where good but the students are easy to slip through the cracks. The kids are mean to others (more than most) and horribly behaved. I have heard that this school/ kids are a nightmare. I have moved far, far away, since having a child and never will my daughter go to a school like this. It s very sad but it is the neighborhood and the upbringing of the children around there that cause this school to go down the tubes. I do not suggest living around this area.
I love Halls Cross Roads! My daughter started kindergarden there last year and by the time she graduated in June, was reading on a third grade level. The reading program they have is awesome and is the reason that even after moving an hour away, I still drove to and from to have my child attend. Of course I had to recieve special permission. Everyone from the vice principal, teachers, secretary to the cafeteria staff was very friendly and helpful. I'm sad that my daughter will have to attend a different school this year and am considering moving back in the area just so that she can finish out her elementary days at Halls Cross.
