This school is as bad as they say. My daughter attends this school. She comes home in tears everyday. She says she can't handle all the cursing and fighting. She also says they do it in front of the teachers and they nothing about it. My daughter also says the teachers are afraid of the kids and their parents. She is forced to attend this school because we are middle income and she offsets the lunch program. She purchases her lunch while most get it for free. Thank you Omaha for showing your gratitude to the middle class!

There are mixed impressions of this school by others. My child's first year experience at Hale was excellent. They work hard at keeping the schedule tight so there's no time for loitering or misbehavior between classes. They have an awesome system for class setting that my student was never bored with school. Attending his west coast school my child was struggling and bottoming out in his grades. Attending Hale my son's grades rose and rose that he made honor roll for the whole year. I went from constant worry to skeptic to VERY proud parent. What ever Hale is doing to inspire my child, I look forward to him starting this next school year. Thank you Hale Middle School for helping to create a child that loves to learn and says things like, 'I wish it wasn't summer, I want to go back to school.'

Nathan Hale Middle School is a school with a good staff and a nice emphasis on academics, along with many activities in which students can take part. There are many honors classes and extensive curriculum that provides a good education to any student. Some clubs or activities that are available to students are drama club, art club, chorus, student council, honor roll, and many more. There are sports such as volleyball, swimming, basketball and many more teams to which students can join and take part. It is a school with a lot to offer.
