I would like to thank the principal, Mrs. Mullenax for featuring my son in the radio excerpt discussing the new technology at the school. I enjoyed getting to see an inside view of the school's progress. The article was exciting to read and it was a great opportunity for him to do what he does best: Talk.
This school is moving forward with technology and is overall an excellently run school despite the area it is located. The artwork throughout the hallways is inspiring and the staff is phenomenal. Great job Halstead.
Halstead is an amazing school! While there has been a negative reputation at one point...this school is now awesome. The staff is beyond compassionate and truly care of their students! I would be honored to have my child attend Halstead Academy!
This school is excllent. I have two children currently attending, 1st & 3rd grades and they are excelling and they look forward to attending school. The class sizes are pretty small for a public school and the community is top notch. Teachers and staff are available in a variety of ways. The school is also great with collaborating with outside entities to sponsor FREE activities for the children. All of the teachers that I have met have been very accommodating, especially to my 3rd grader who can be a handful at times. I great appreciate all the staff has done to keep her on the right path to become a great student. Also, My 3rd grader was also in the drama club, unfortunately it was operated, to my knowledge, by some college kids who could no longer do it. It was a great club and my daughter loved it. Hopefully, they find someone to pick it up.
Now a Green School, the Halstead Academy has continued to prove their willingness to work with external partners to increase literacy percentiles. People often feel that when their child does not succeed, it is the sole responsibility of education systems and its employees. Children succeed when the work that is taught in acedemic institutions is reinforced at home. This theory applies not only to children in adolescence but also college students. Studying to improve ones self is the Master Key to success.
Halstead Academy was a school that my two younger children went to until we moved. My youngest child had Mrs.Griffin as her teacher for third grade as she was wonderful. So sad that she will be leaving, it won't be the same without her!! It's been many changes since the new principal and I don't think the staff likes it. On another note the neighborhood is nice!!
