I am a teacher at hanes and let me tell you that if your kid is not in AG or HAG this is a horrible school of them as the ''traditional"kids get treated very very poorly they are all in one Pod with nasty bathrooms. The kids in ag and hag get all the newest and best supplys and the best teacher with the best rooms and the regular kids are looked down on and get the worst rooms and they get no computers in their room but the ag kids do my son has notice too they don't even get a change to get into ag. It's like segregation but with the abilities if their brain

My son loves this school! He has had such a great middle school experience at Hanes thanks to the STEM focus and great teachers. My daughter can't wait to go here next year!

Most of the teachers are pretty good, but the current chorus teacher is horrible. She cannot control a class, and we always have to do worksheets ( that are for the wrong level of chorus) instead of singing. She also made us do 3 worksheets we had already completed and turned in a second time. We will not be ready for the winter concert.

Really happy with our experience. Seem to be some silly posters out there. Recommend this school to those with motivated kids.

Hanes Middle School has a few great teachers, a lot of average teachers, and more bad teachers than it should, given that it serves the HAG program. I am particularly concerned with the way math is taught (or NOT taught, as the case may be) in the HAG program. My grandson was failing until we got him a tutor one day a week, and now he is making all A's. It is remarkable what actually being taught can do. In addition, the administration (including the Principal and Vice Principal) are generally non-responsive. My grandson got a concussion in his Phys Ed class, which was reported to the school nurse who had my daughter pick him up and take him to the doctor for a confirmed diagnosis. My daughter has emailed and phoned the Principal daily, and has had no response. I thank God my grandson will be going on to high school next year so we don't have to deal with these people ever again!

Last year my child had 24 different language arts teachers in one year. He is in AG. I think there may have been a vacuum created when the principal from 4 years ago left. He was a real dynamo. This year has better, but his science teacher left for maternity leave and I don't expect any consistency for the next month.

If you can get your kid into the HAG program, this school is great. The Lead the Way Program is worthwhile as well, but often too full for all students who apply to take part. However, as former student who had friends in each segregation of the school, the AG program there was a disappointment, and beyond that, the school is abysmal. The discrepancies between the resources that the HAG and neighborhood kids receive are astounding, which is pretty ironic considering the school puts on an act as if it has "saved" these kids. The kids from the neighborhood are assigned some of the worst teachers, and are often looked down upon by the rest of the school and administrators - all while the kids in HAG classes are assigned great teachers, and esteemed by the entire school. Teachers let tons of kids with tons of potential in these classes slip through the cracks - often times the teachers are unaware of how to control their classes. I'm sure some of them would qualify for the great programs in the school if someone would just pay them more attention. Case and point, the school uses the smart kids fancy awards drawn by the magnet program to make it look as if they've fixed the school.
