Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a community member
Very ineffective. Grades are entered incorrectly. Once questioned it takes forever to change or you have to challenge the teacher because they believe they are always right. Horrible

Amount of homework: Disagree

They don't give out homework. My kids NEVER have homework. Never ever!!! makes no sense to me.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

The staff is full of bigots. They are not fair and do not show respect to the children or the parents. Education is not going on in the school.

Nothing has changed at this school since the last post in 2013. It is 2016 and the schools focus is still the same. The administration is horrible to this day. They are disrespectful to the students and the parents. Education? What is education? I am not sure anymore. However, discipline and minor behavioral issues they seem to know exactly what to do w/ that. Homework? I have had two students who have unfortunately gone through HLMS and they NEVER have homework. NEVER!!! The staff is still partial to the children. this school is horrible. And the High School is not any better. Ignorance to the fullest level. HORRIBLE!!!

I moved here from San Diego, CA with my children. I will have to agree with the previous posts about this school! It does appear that this school is most concerned with minor behavioral issues rather than the education of the children! I have called and emailed the Assistant Principal 3 times requesting a conference to discuss some issues that I feel are not addressed correctly! We are still fairly new here so I am trying to give them the benefit of the doubt! I will be sure to post more at the end of the school year!

I would not advise any parent to choose this school as one that would educate their child(ren). It is unfortunate, but it is true. Unless you have additional outside support, your child will leave that school knowing less than he or she did when they started. There is no order whatsoever. There is no real desire for parental support unless cookies, candy or magazines are being sold. The STAFF shows partiality to the children, and the children themselves will tell you that they are not learning or practicing anything that inspires learning.

Horn Lake Middle School does NOT care about educating children at the level they should be at. They do NOT work with parents that care about their children's education at all. I think they are more worried about a child stepping out of line while walking to the lunch room. We moved here from out of state and no one at that school requested my child's quim report to place her in the appropriate classes and they will just stick your child in the lowest classes. None of the staff will call you back when you leave a message and when you do get a hold of anybody they just tell you to bad because they are to lazy to care. DO NOT ENROLL YOU CHILD IN THIS SCHOOL if you want them to succeed.

The teachers really work with their students and it is a really good environment.

HLMS is a great school for my child. The teachers work together to foster the excitement of learning. They work as a team, conference with the parents as a team, and show an enthusiasm that is infectious. As a matter of fact, I have seen the same type of teacher involvement in all of the Horn Lake schools so far. Keep up the good work!

I can not beleave i actually thought this was a great school for my children. I would advise any parent to please reseach this school before places your child there.
