Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning John Haley has a holistic approach to learning. We focus on the whole child through academics, community involvement, and character building. We follow the standards set by the state of Texas, but we also allow for creativeness and student-led learning. Our belief is that all children can learn and be successful through their unique talents and individuality. Students learn to think critically and solve complex problems which develops a model citizen for our community.
