Very friendly and educated but I must say im very dissapoited in this school. Some Teachers seem like prison guards, although they need to keep a hold because there are alot of miss behaving kids,but there are also alot of innocent ones who get caught in the crossfire! Also a lot of BULLYING gets thrown under the rug because teachers dont want to deal with the Ghetto parents! There should be zero tollorance for BULLYING!!

I am a teacher here at Thomas Haley. I have no doubt this is where I am supposed to be. I absolutely feel supported by both the administration and parents. The principals at T. Haley are so caring. They truly love their jobs and helping children in any way they can. Their doors are always open to teachers and parents when they are needed. The parents of Thomas Haley students are very special. I have had nothing but supportive parents who I can call to brag about their children or express concern. They seem to appreciate the parent/teacher contact. These last few years have been a time of growth for our school. The PTA has grown tremendously, parents are getting more involved, and our TAKS scores have risen each year! I look forward to seeing what else happens at T.Haley. Go Horned Frogs!

This is my child's first year attending and coming from the school district that she previously attending this is a great school. She enjoys each day. I am pleasantly surprised at the involvement of the staff. It feels good in knowing my child is actually learning something instead being 'babysat'.

Every morning upon entering the school, you will find the principal standing in the hallway giving each student a High-five as they pass by. Teachers are very friendly and I have always found that they communicate concerns and progress often. My child has been attending T. Haley for 4 years and every year is better than the previous. Extra help is always available when it comes to academic progress. My child has come to enjoy school. I credit this to the way this school is run and the heart of the teachers and administrators.

My child is entering 1st grade in the fall and I have to say we are very pleased with Thomas Haley so far. The principal is wonderful...very visible and accessible, knows many students by name and teachers seem happy with him and all the administrators. Although I have limited experience, parental involvement seems okay considering that many families that attend this school might be low to moderate income and jobs may keep them from being more involved. Music and art are alive and well at the school and that is very refreshing and all kids attend PE. Teachers and administrators expect high levels of discipline and from what we've seen they've been successful at implementing strict but fair discipline. Can't comment much on academics since my son is only in 1st grade, but gifted & talented program seems to be well implemented.

My children have been going to this school for 3 years. I have found the administrators to be very professional and concerned about the students. Many times when I comes home from work, they are still at school making sure everything is taking care of. They have numerous training workshops for parents to help them prepare their child for TAKS (childcare provided). In addition, I enjoyed the Math Circus family night. It was a blast for the whole family. I look forward to my children attending T. Haley next year.

This school has a stale, cold feeling upon entering, and principals have a less than friendly air that is military in nature. Despite the lack of good administration, teachers are quite accomodating and parental contact seems priority. Technology usage is emphasized while other academics take a back seat. I have voluntarily removed my child from this school in hopes of her attending a school with principals that are more in-tune with the parents and students.
