As the smallest elementary school in Sudbury, Haynes almost feels like a private school. There is tremendous parent involvement, and the school makes the most of that enthusiasm and energy. The Haynes Organization of Parents (HOP) provides additional science and arts enrichment for the students, which has included performances by an opera troupe, a live "lightning" demonstration, as well as funding grade-level cultural activities including Mexico day and Japan day as well as the ever popular Colonial day. The teachers are excellent, and welcome parent involvement in the classroom. The playground is exceptional, with a spider-web net, huge play structure, and great field access. Haynes principal knows every child's name, and more often than not can be found interacting with the students as well as the teachers. Haynes has extremely strong academic programs, with a strong emphasis on reading and writing and mathematics. Music is taught as a separate class starting in Kindergarten, and art classes are added in 1st grade.

The quality of teaching is excellent. The academic programs are very good. The school has music and art, but no other extracurricular activities. The level of parent involvement is very significant, however this creates a disadvantage. The school administrators have a difficult time dealing with such involvement and try to keep the parents at bay. Thus, making the system very difficult for parents to approach the administration. This situation also causes the administration of the school to be very one-sided (teachers are right no matter what).
