This is a typical and struggling public school with a few exceptions. Benefits: laptops for every student to use at home and in class, there are more choices for extra curricular activities, and a large campus with plenty of room for expansion. Concerns: Level of Instruction is slightly below average. The student to teacher ratio is currently 30+ : 1. (Next year, it is projected to be 35:1) For every respectable teacher three are in need of retraining and another is in need of finding a new occupation. Top Concern: Communication There have been several occasions when teachers completely failed to respond to multiple emails, notes, and phone calls. (After more than a week) I have only had to make contact 4 or 5 times. If the concern or issue is extremely important and quick response is needed, I have to go to the school in person. Even these concerns are often dismissed or seem to be handled as an inconvenience. The current administration demonstrates similar behavior after being made aware of communication concerns. Conclusion: If the administration was monitored more closely and/or replaced, the school could improve considerably because the potential is there.

Every school has some room for improvement but overall I have had no trouble with my kids at this school.

In my opinion no school deserves a 10 because there is always room for improvement. But for Hawley I would rate it between an 8 and 9. I have had two children and three grandkids attend Hawley. They have always had great teachers, principles, and support staff. There is drama but that is brought on by the students themselves. When there may be issues, I have been the staff jump into action and things handled. Students are performing very well academically and from what I observe, when I am there, the majority of the students and parents look to be satisfied and the students are well educated. If I were to need to send another child through Hawley, I would not have to think twice - they would go. Hawley is a good country school, taught by great teachers, governed by a fantastic principal, and well kept by awesome janitoral staff and cafeteria workers.

I am currently in 8th grade at G.C. Hawley and am only giving it a 3 becuase so far its been an okay school. The ellectives are very bad in my opinion, Im in Honors Chorus and it isnt very well funded. Niether is the band or Jazz Band programs. The cafiteria food is not good in the slightest, and no healthy choices are there, only the occasional bruised apple. Ive had fun and have good grades but that is only because Im smart and took my classes seriously. There is some discrimination issues, not with race but with backgrounds. If your child wants to excel and be in a well funded and well taught school dont send them to Hawley. In my whole three years at Hawley ive only had 4 teachers that added to my knowledge out of about 15 teachers in all. I loved my expierence because i made the most of it.

I'm rating this school a 2 because I went to one of the dances and they didn't let a student in the dance. I mean he just left the school like 3 days ago! They let him in, but that really bothered me because, with no hassle, they should let anyone go to the dance, weather the person moved even 1 day ago :( I am very dissapointed in this school. I thought they were better than that. I am not letting my youngest daughter go to that school

I am sorry to say we moved here 2 years ago. It has been a huge mistake. some of the teachers are ok. The people in the office are pretty helpful and the old principal was good, but she is gone. As for the students , their is disviserty and that's great, but if you are moving from out of the area(espically from up north) be prepared to be left out. The students and some of the staff have taught my child what descrimination truely is. Damn Yankee is a term you will hear often!!!! People here have a 'good old boy' attitude!' yankees' beware. We had to pull own son out of school and plan to get out of here!!!!! As for electives the students just keep working with the same staff with very little to offer!! I would say again beware!!!!I only wish I knew before moving here!

I've been going to Hawley for 3 years now. They have some good things (teachers, patio, caferteria) and some bad things (teachers, bad teachers, really bad teacher). But all in all, it's a really good school. So far.

I was so scared of my son going to middle school but once we got to Hawley I was so relieved. The principal and the teachers are great. We had a very positive school year. It really put my mind at ease and my son had the best three years there. (To bad I can't say the same for the high )school.

I have had two children at this school and everyone went out of there to help both of my children! The third child is entering this year and I am sure the experience will be just as pleasant .

I have two children in this school and could not ask for their experience to have been better. I have a child on each end of the spectrum; one that excels easily, and one that struggles. The teachers have worked hard to help, keep you informed, and truly care about the students. The principal and staff work hard to stay on top of things. When I have had concerns, they have been addressed quickly.

This school has been a wonderful suprise for my daughter and me. The leadership takes care of discipline before it gets out of hand. The teachers let the student and the parents know what is expected of them. The sixth grade team that my daugher is on (All Star Team) seem to really work together for the good of each child.

This school has teachers who care and do their best to help children succeed. They could use more parent involvement.

This school has been a big dissapointment. The classes are overcrowded and the elective classes are very poor. There is truly no diversity among ethnic groups.
