This school is Amazing! Everyone from staff to administration are focused on the children's success. Parental involvement is a must though. They will not reach out to communicate with you if you neglect to communicate with them though. Stay involved.
HMS has a great staff that clearly has the goal of establishing the best possible learning environment that a student could use, there is absolutely No Child Left Behind in this school!
I luv this school the teachers are great and I have sooo many friends.
I do believe that a lot could be done to make Halls Middle Schools better. It will need to be done through parent involvement. The teachers need to be help accountable for there lesson plans and their counterproductive attitudes.
This is the best school i've ever been to and i've been to a lot, halls is my true home school included. I'm a seventh grader. By the way i wish the teachers wouldn't be so demand!

Halls Middle School is a great school! I am a sixth grader and they have really welcomed me! Go Halls Red Devils!!!
I have a child at Halls Middle and think the teaching staff is below par. An atmosphere like that however, starts at the top of the school administration and with parents.
Hi I am an 8th Grader at halls middle and I Love it there. Ive met so many good friends and nice people there. Some of the teachers are strict though but only because they care about our grades and how we do in school. I never liked going to school and now I can t wait to wake up and go. I would most defiantly recommend halls middle because it s a great school.
I know this is a great school. I went there in the 70's. I have a child there now. I have had two children go through Halls Middle. I have had several nieces and nephews go through and are there now. After Halls High I went on to the University of Tennessee and graduated on the Deans list. I am working on my third child to comlete her education at Halls Middle. There is no better person than Mr. Jay Wormsley. Mr Oliver and his staff really take their job seriously. I have been blessed with them. My children are average to honor roll. Everything they have been involved in, good or bad has been handled fairly. Some teachers are still there and my children have had some of them. They are still very enthusiastic.
This school is a horrible place to learn. I have two kids of the same age that attend the schools 8th grade. They are, in my opinion, mistreated by the staff, and by the students. The staff do not put their all into teaching. The kids are strongly judgmental, and the teachers do a bad job of controlling them and their actions. I would never recommend this school (or the district for that matter) to a friend. The school also has a history of racism.
a lot of teachers have been there to long and have lost their enthusiasm for teaching. their attitudes are affecting the students behavior,self-concept and all the fun, positive aspects of school.
Halls middle school was agreat place to get my 6th grade education. I really enjoyed the teachers and staff.I'd definitely give this school a 10 on a 1-10 scale! Way to go HMS,go devils!
