I have been this school for a year (7th grade) and I have to say this school is very terrible and feels like a prison to me. the teachers and the principal really help me, but the children (especially my classmates) are really mean.They bully a lot, fight, abuse people ( especially me), yell at the teacher, be ignorant, selfish, and just insane. I am now looking forward to transfer to another school out of this district, and I hope that this school improves more (especially the bathrooms).
This school is awsome,the teachers teach well,Meap scores are above ...you should send yor child to this school!
I am a student at Hally. I really like the skool,But they have a lot of fights.But nice kids and teachers.
This is an awsome school. The principal, Ms. Davis, really cares about the education of all students. Her high expectations and her kind disposition has changed the lives of both of my children--they are now candidates for some of the best high schools in Michigan. Thank you Hally, Thank you Ms. Davis!
My daughter attended Hally for two years, 7th and 8th grades. Enrolling my daughter into this school was one of the best decisions I made, she attended private schools all of her life but no opportunity was ever given to her to excel outside of those schools unless I paid for it, which I feel is ridiculous if one is already paying tuition. However, after attending Hally some teachers noticed her academic abilities and opened endless doors for her to excel in extracurricular activities that were free, for example academic games, national honor society, 4.0 club, and DAPCEP just to name a few. The curriculum was still rigorous enough that it still challenged her (homework and tests everyday) which was very important to me. She has been accepted into Renaissance High School and will be attending this school in the fall of 2009. However some changes need to be made with the office staff they are rude and lazy also, more open door communications between teachers and staff need to be enforced by the principle. So I just would like to say for parents not to give up on the Detroit Public School system, there are still some excellent schools out there, you just have to do your homework and look for them and stay involved in your son/daughter education and the school itself. Good luck and Thank You Hally!!!
I am a 7th grader at Hally and it is a overall good school, the only thing i don't like is that there isn't enough after school activities. But this is a good school and the best teachers are Ms. Thomas and Ms. Mcdonald.
I attended Hally from 6th to 8th grade and I loved it. The teachers took students on fun & educational field trips. The school lunch wasn't to great, but I enjoyed the social time with other students. I love the classes and some of the teachers & administrators. My favorite teachers were Mrs. Rucker(science) & Ms. McDonald (Math),my favorite Administrator is Ms. Morton. I love the classes because they challenged me & prepared me for Highschool. Now I'm a Highschool freshman and I'm doing very well.
I have a daughter who attends this school and as a parent I can say all the children express and show leadership skills. The Teachers are very dedicated to there students. Pretty safe, organized and at the end of the day the children are not crazy and amp. Thanks Hally and Hally Parents for a job well done!!!
Very challanging school, love the teachers and staff. The children do excel from attending this school it gets them prepared fcor High School if your childs wants to learn Hally is for he/she. My son wanted to go to this school and has accepted that hard work gets good grades and gets you into a good High school and prepares you for that next step Division One College
I went to hally and i really liked it the students were a little loud and rowdy but other that that it was fun and the work load was challenging but i think the best teacher was mr davis :science and math
Hally provides students with a good education to prepare them for High School.
i attended this school from 6 grade to my first half of 7th grade. I am currently in the 9th Grade. Thanks to them I was able to do very well when I moved to the subburbs and I am doing very well in the high school I am attending.
This is an excellent school for students that really want to learn. This school provides a great learning environment with fun and willing to teach teachers. This school focuses on reading, writing and math skills. They take a students difficulties and develop strategies to help the student gradually develop. Overall this school gives Detroit children achance to make something out of themselves, ad its a historically fundamental school.
Transferring my daughter from a Charter School to a public school like Hally was the best thing that I could have done for her. She has truly blossomed and grown since being at this school. The charter school where she previously attended did not allow for growth. They still walked the children to their classes, teacher turnover was high, the students were disruptive and suffered no consequences. At Hally, it is very different. There is structure, the teachers truly care for the students, the principal is always available for a conference, the children are always being challenged academically and my daughter is extremely happy. If anyone is thinking about sending their child to a Charter School, please DON'T! Check out Hally and come home to DPS.
I attended Hally from the 6th to the 8th grade and had such a good time there. i learned alot and the teachers are stern yet are very supportive. hally was like my second family and i really appreciate what they did for me. thanx to them i was at the head of the class of my 9th and 10th grade year at Renaissance high school
If you are looking for 'hands on', this is the school for you. This school also participates in the GK-12 program where college students from Wayne State University come into the math and science classrooms twice a week to do labs and hands on activities such as shark and pig dissections. The students are really challenged by their teachers and are well-prepared for high school.
This school is very good and is a great educational enviroment. I like this school very much,I attened this school from grade 6-7 I loved all the after school activities such as cheerleading, academic games, basketball and more. I also liked the teachers and the work. Later on I found that this school is ahead of most schools in learning your child will be ahead in all subjects and will learn while having fun. All the kids are nice and understanding. So I hope you choose to send your child to Hally Magnet Middle School for an educational experience.
