Hailey elementary has a wonderful, caring, and involved staff. The principal and assistant principal greet children at the front door every morning and know them by name! I feel fortunate that my children are able to attend such a positive and nurturing environment. Hailey is the role model for what every elementary school should strive to achieve. Kuddos to the staff.
I had 2 children attend Kindergarten at Hailey. I was impressed by the level of caring, concern, and commitment that the teachers, the principal and Asst Principal showed for the students, their education, and the environment at this campus. Overall, there is great leadership at this school. The only weakness at this campus was a large percentage of socioeconomically disadvantaged kids come into Kindergarten with no previous school experience. That meant that a large portion of K was spent trying to catch these children up to the others who already knew their letters, numbers, and were beginning to read.
I have had three children at Hailey and was thrilled at the level of encouragement and success they experienced. The Principal and Asst. Principle show great leadership and the teachers, that I have met and dealt with, are exceptional people that put the childrens growth and development first and foremost.
We move around states a bit and I've seen a number of very nice schools - this one falls below any we've experienced. It seems that the teachers are overwhelmed. I was a regular parent tutor and I saw teachers yell and behave in ways that I believe any parent would be shocked by, if their child was the recipient. The VP, Ms. Horne, seems to want to make the school better. I cannot say much for the principal, Ms. Nichol.
The school administration and staff have been without hesitation extremely accomodating to my child's needs in the classroom setting. The school seems very well run and organized, while projecting a positive and friendly atmosphere for the children. My child is quite happy there, and I feel very fortunate that Hailey is our home school.
We had the best teacher for my childs 1st year in school. The pre-K program however is only for low-income was the only draw-back I see at Hailey. They have a well organized program my child made good progress in K, and the teacher worked with me to help my child in learning difficulty area's, through different suggestions for home activities. We look forward to another year at Hailey. The principle & v-principle both addressed concerned I had w/ different matters concerning my child right away. The new playground was a hit with all the students. & the teachers planned fun parties through-out the year for the K classes. K parents be prepared to drop your K-student off at the front door during the 1st 4 weeks & no lunch visits as well during that transition period, per Ms. P.
Great school. Wonderful environment and supportive teachers. We have nothing but superior experiences at Hailey.
The staff and teachers are excellent, my daughter has shown so much improvement in just a short amount of time. We will definitely strive to stay at Hailey, keep up the great work you do !!
