The staff at this school are excellent, caring and professional. The leadership is second to none. Expectations are high, and although some parents like to throw fits and complain because their kids are always in trouble... their kids are reflections of them. Although the teachers are fabulous, common sense tells you that they are not miracle workers. If you want your child to be successful parents have to invest time and energy into their children, just like the teachers do.

My child is currently in the 4th grade, and started at Hayes early in her 3rd grade year. Her 3rd grade teacher did an excellent job, the right mix of caring and discipline. And this year her teacher is following right where 3rd grade left off. I'm very pleased with Hayes. I also understand that teachers in rougher districts have tougher hurdles to get over due to problems with children's homelife. I believe the teachers at Hayes are working with these students in a caring manner.

As my child has only been to the school for one year (kindergarten), I cannot make any blanket statements about the entire school; but our overall experience with Hayes has been positive. My daughter is doing very well here. She's well on her way to independent reading and her teacher Mrs. Wingate is very professional and caring. I'm impressed with how sophisticated (yet learnable) the curriculum is even in kindergarten. I haven't had one on one contact with the principal, but from what I have observed I see that she is engaged with the children and that they are her priority. It would be nice to see this school have more extracurricular activities as they have in some of the north side schools, violin lessons; for instance. But so far, we've had a very good experience with this school.

My daughter currently attends Hayes in the pre-school class. I don't like to pick at people but it's obvious that the teachers and staff could care less about the students there. The grades are well under where they should be and they blame all their problems on either the school board or the parents. Nothing is ever the principles fault, her lack of leadership is outrageous. I personally think that they should just shut the school down.

My son went to this school 1st 2nd and 3rd grades. He had excellant teachers who seem to really care about the students. I would send my kids back.

You know it is very easy to pass judgement. As parents, what are you doing to help ensure that your child doesn't fall through the cracks? It is so easy for parents to lay blame on everybody but how did your child's homework grades look? While they were getting these C's and D's how many of these grades were due to not completing the work that is being sent home to complete? I have a childre that graduated last year from Hayes and one that is currently attending Hayes. My daughter that graduated last year is doing wonderful at Carl Albert Junior High and is exceeding well beyond our expecations! My child that is still at Hayes left his school 2 years ago because he was a problem child and has been a straight 'A' student ever since. Look closer to home! Hayes is great!

Our son started K.@ Hayes-now he is 6th.grader.He for this year-only-loves school.Alot has to do with his teacher.As well-as us as Parents.We must do our part.Find out what is going on at school.Everyone at Hayes knows us-as well as our child. We must talk to our children-let them know how important they are-to their own future-as-well as others. We-can't leave it up to them to just know-at Hayes they try their best to teach ABC's & 123-s; as well as alot of things they shoulden't have to-things we as mom's & dad's are suppose to do. Hayes is a very clean school-the office is at the front door you are greated as you enter Hayes. I can not speak 4 all-87%Are nice-rest are-Rude. Thats in all jobs.-Thank you- SANDY

I have also had 3 children attend this school, and unfortunately my youngest while in preschool was more advanced than when she finished kindergarten at Hayes. My son went from a straight a student in a small town school to a problem child and making c's and d's. We definately need leadership in this school as well as the teachers who want to be here and help our children.

Another problem school. Three of my children have gone through or are going through this school. It's very easy to fall through the cracks of this school because the child is 'sweet' or 'cute.' It's time to get leadership in this school that will only help the child. It's time to get the teachers who want to work there in. The ones who want to make a difference in a child's life. If you don't start young then by jr high the child is gone.
