This school wasn't a good school for me. I only spent one year there. I was always picked on. I sure hope things have changed. The deans didn't do anything to help. The assistant principal for the 6th graders would lock the bathroom doors. The buses were ridiculous. It was either late picking the kids up in the cold or never showing up in the afternoons. Thank whoever invented Metro cards since that helped me get there and back. There were some teachers I liked though. But I would never go back.
I currently go to this school and i love it. The school has a lot to offer and i especially love the technology program. Ive been in the school for 4 years and im still attending the school. The students get a lot of respect in this school and besides since im good with computers all the teachers give me a lot of respect also. I love this school and i always will. My favorite teacher in the school is and always will be the computer teacher in room 301.
I've been in many different middle schools, partically because i movr a lot. I spent 3 years in this school ( 7th 8th and 9th) and they were the best years ever. Everyone is kind, and wants to help around. The deans are amazing! They really listen to what you have to say. The teachers as well are loving.
This school brings soo much memories into the heart of my family and im currently in halsey.I love this school the teachers are nice and the students know when to get there additudes poppin!
THE MOST RAD school ever! the school offers so many programs! it is so good! this is my first year here and it is absolutely great! I mean, better than my elementary school, I must say.
I went to this school. I don't who in the world says this school is good because it isn't. All the school staff takes pride in the cleanliness, but not the education in this school. Trust me! This school is not good at all. May I repeat, at all!
Okay School. First year here and the activities are great! [I think] there are too many fights in this school though. ehh... we all get into fights. The students just need to know how to avoid them. Make sure the student gets into honors. Whats Good about honors: More atention, more activites such as field trips. Whats Bad: Too much HW! Also, the teachers always want more. Okay school, Just don't get into fights!
The academic programs are great! Art, drama, gardening,science, band, chorus, health, yoga, dance, boating, volleyball, handball, and taikwando are extracurricular programs. I just graduated and I was really happy there. Some of the kids are bad but thats in every school. I would recommend this school.
Make sure from the beginning that your child gets into honor class. The only kids who get good education and attention are kids who are in the honor classes.
Halsey is becoming the elite school it once was. The new principal reinstated all our art and music programs. Every child in the school can participate in art or music if they choose to. He also has invented theme days. Wonderful place
