Quality teachers and leadership. Good sports programs and a good variety of other extra curriculum activities.


Posted August 9, 2005

'I am a student at Hallsville and it is an amazing school. Teachers work hard to help children succeed in life. We have an amazing athletic program. We are soon getting football which will be a big hit in Hallsville. Coaches strive to help students maintain good grades. If you get bad grades you sit on the bench. There is a lot of parent involvement. A lot of our teachers are parents to students that attend Hallsville. Hallsville is an amazing school and gives everything a child needs. Another really good thing about Hallsville is we really don't have an issue with children bringing guns, knifes, drugs and etc. to school. I went to Columbia schools as well and nothing compares to Hallsville. I hated Columbia and love every morning waking up and going to Hallsville. I recommend Hallsville to anyone who likes a small town school. It's an awesome school!

I myself graduated from Hallsville and believe it to be a good school. Discipline starts at home. If you expect the school to do your work as a parent that is not possible. You as a parent have to give a grounding force of discipline and manuers before children start to school. This is one of the few schools to still offer the A+ program which will help alot of children go to college that can't afford too. The atheltic programs here are top in my book. The coaches care about the students as students first. Bad grades, no play, As it should be. Both of my children are involved in sports and are only the A and B honor roll. I wouldn't want my children in any other school at this time.

This isn't a very disciplined school making it really hard for my daughter to learn. I am not at all happy with this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri.
