I am student at HMS. I have always wanted to switch my school, but since my family has trouble with transportation, I must stay here. I have been bullied and some have wanted to start fight with me. There is a lot of cursing here and disclinary is not the best. I love HISD, but they need to learn how to control us kids and stop all this buling. The little signs that say "Drugs make you stupid" and "don't bully" has no affect. Now for teachers, this is below or average. One of our teachers is just plain wierd and another one cries durning class. Some our fun and nice. As for administration, they have thier ups and downs. When a fight starts, all they do is probably give the child detention, or sometimes a sitation. I want to leave HMS...badly. I don't recommend this place at all.
I believe that this school is doing a great injustice when students are promoted without mastering the material. Students who don't pass the TAKS Test on the third try get basically a free pass to move on to the 9th grade because if they are not passed it might be a negative impact to their ego. Most teachers there want to be the kids friend and will high five them for any reason, but for passing. Most of the time the students don't get punished if they break a rule because the discipline is not great to begin with. I withdrew my child from that school for his own safety.
i go to this school all the teachers are great if a student is wants to make an effort to pass the teacher will help you with what ever you need work on. people might say the this school is 'ghett' but really you dont know till you have been a student in evry calss. some teachers are really hard of corse they are not supposed to be easy on you.
Harlandale Middle School is a great school. They have wonderful teachers and a grea 7th grade football coaches are really dedicated.
The teachers and Administrators are great with the kids. My son had an excellent counselor to help him and just to talk to.
I think harlandale middle school is great I am a student there and all the teachers were so helpful
