    "Fantastic School. Teachers care and in contact by phone or by email within the day. Principal and Vice Principal have an open door policies. academics are over the top and climbing. The students get out what they put in. Don't expect the teachers to raise your children. PARENT involvement is highly recommended as you will see the improvement and watch the child grow. I HAVE recommended this school to friends and will continue to do so."

    "I graduated from Hale. The school is Okay, although I believe that they should start paying attention in what the students say about their teachers being Racist. It as well did not get me prepared for my freshman year they goal for the students are way too low. The staff should also focus more about the children's education rather than how much a student talks."

    "I used to go to this school. It is the worst school in the entire area, don't send your children here, they won't learn a thing! The teachers say at the beginning of the year we'll do a small review of last year, but that review lasts the whole school year! The students hold back the entire class cause the teacher must go and yell at them for not behaving. At Hale, every child is stupid according to the teachers, None can succeed.When a child is smart and can do the work faster, the teachers try to make it that they are rushing and try making all their work look wrong and then say its their fault. In lunch, I nearly choked to death cause the worker was busy yelling to a kid who was talking. This school worries more about the kids talking than learning, or the children's safety"

    "I disagree with the last post. My daughter who just started second grade is having a difficult time with reading and it was quickly adressed by her teacher. She placed her in a six week program that is going to help her strengthen her reading skills and she also suggested enrolling her in an after school program. Her previous teacher at a different school, didn't think she had a problem which only showed how much more dedicated her new teacher is. Over all, great teachers and a great staff at a great location."
