i go to hall and i love it im in the 6th grade some this is my final year at hall this is also halls last year. the only thing i have to say is that some teachers do not care about me. out of the seven years at hall it was a pretty good school.


Posted July 29, 2011

My children went to Hall for 2 years.We are changing schools this year.The majority of the teachers (not all) are very fast to complain the children aren't doing "good enough" but hasn't the time to help the child.Bullying is completely ignored with no punishment or reprimand what so ever!When a child is found to have head lice they are not sent home they are allowed back in class with a phone call to the parents after school. My children were excelling at their previous school, at Hall their grades,reading levels and all dropped!

This school offers no help for a child who wants to learn but struggles to understand. Very poor communication on the part of the teachers.

My daughter is just starting Kindergarten at Hall so it is too early to rate them overall. But I did have an issue with how my daughter was adapting and with the behavior of other children and the counselor and her teacher were very quick to respond to my concerns. I felt they cared and wanted to improve the situation quickly.

Poor communication with one another and parents, slow response to individual student assessments, stereotypes rampant, with cliche political drama from staff.
