I went to this school when i was 7 years old. It was a great school because no other school would accept me because of my disability. But i had to leave after i finished my 2nd grade year to move to other house. But in the end, this was the best school i went to.
I like the school but the meals should be improved.Also parent's should be involved in more activities with there children.
Excellent Life Skills classrooms. The school suffers from the same lack of funds and support that almost all Philadelphia schools suffer from.
I have two disabled children in Hackett. Both of the teachers and classroom aides take good care of them. My older child was bounced around for two years,before he was finally admitted to Hackett. I feel better now that he is learning again.
I have a child in the fourth grade as well as the second grade. My children are eager to learn but there are some teachers that just don't want to work with the children. I am a parent with a special needs child and I am very into my children's education. The are no extracurricular activities for children in the grade below the third and I feel that this is unfair to the children that want to do more at the school.
As a parent of a special needs child I have had a hard time getting my child assessed. The school has not followed thru with the request for age not grade placement.
