I think this school has poor office workers you call and they are rude or when you go into the office they don't help you. Mind you this happens every time I have to cal or go in there.

School is clean & well-kept. Teachers have a passion towards student success. No tolerance policy for mis-behavior & mis-conduct. Excellent extra-curricular programs & advanced placement classes. Personal student safety is approached as top priority. Overall, this is a school with much to offer.

I can't say enough positive things about this school. Haller Middle School is a great school. We live in an adjacent school district and purposely got an out of district transfer so our child could attend this school. All aspects of this school are on track; the quality of academic programs is superb; faculty involvement and enthusiasm are wonderful (I consistently receive emails from all my child's teachers notifying me of homework assignments and upcoming assignments, etc. The principal and vice-principal are very hands-on and can be frequently seen positively interacting with the students throughout the school day. There is a dedicated music program in place, and the sports programs are phenomenal. They offer basketball, cross country, volleyball, wrestling, soccer, and track & field and participation is overwhelming. I volunteer at Haller and there is always a welcoming ambiance in this school that is caring, respectful, and upbeat. We love Haller!

Very fine school, with incredible teachers who will go the extra mile for the students. They have many sports for grades 7 and 8 with two great jazz groups, both singing and instrumental.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
