Posted October 26, 2003

I would highly recommend Hawley Public Schools as a place where you can safely and happily let your child recieve his/her education. With the amount of leadership and high level of commitment these teachers posses there isn't a better place to send your children! I would know I was one of the students for 13 years! And will be sending my children there someday!
