Horrible!!! So far my daughter has come home crying because the teachers has called her "stupid" ... teachers calling children stupid... seriously. You can report it... but it will not go anywhere. When parent/teacher conference comes along, I strongly suggest you have a conference with another person other than just the teacher due to the fact they will deny they talked down to you and etc. I am looking into home schooling very soon!!
my child went here for a VERY short amount of time and she was bullied and humiliated and the lunch was sometimes ROTTEN , rumors went around and made her and her only nice friend disappear , the kids are very disrespectful i would not let another child i ever loved go through the pain that she went through
Honestly I don't have a whole lot of issues with H. Halstead, but we've only been there for PK and K. I am a little frustrated with the lack of gifted education opportunities for younger children; there are none for PK and K testing starts in January with the proragm beginning in March. The campus has some issues, though most are cosmetic. It is a little concerning that dogs are often allowed on campus (admittedly on a leash). Menus for lunch and breakfast are definately high on carbs and a bit high on sugar, but they are gretting more diverse. PE seems low on the totem pole making me wonder if they meet the required minimum for TX standards.
My child has been attending Halstead for two years. I am extremely happy with the quality of education my child is receiving. The faculty and staff are awesome. It has a very friendly environment and my child can't wait to get up each morning to go to school. The teachers do an outstanding job in making school a positive place to be. Parents are encouraged to play a role in their children's education and are made to feel welcomed when visiting the school. Lots of extracurricular activities are available for the students to participate in as well as homework club and after school tutoring. I am glad that my child will be able to continue his education at Halstead through fourth grade.
