    "I believe that the biggest issue with William Hall is the lack of communication. It's like pulling teeth. You ask the teachers to let you know specific things and they act as if they are too afraid to tell you anything. When a parent, in a county where the school systems says the parents are never involved, actually wants to be involved, why are there no clear avenues to make this happen? I can't help my daughter keep up in class if I have no idea what is going on in class. Grades are never posted in an adequate amount of time. Homework is not consistent. There are never any notes written in the agenda book from the teachers. I honestly believe the teachers are capable, but they must be overwhelmed to the point where the children suffer. If I ask a teacher to let me know issues prior to the report cards so that I can help her catch up, then let me know the issues. This may be public school, but as a tax payer, i am paying for this education."

    "The teaching staff, (the Middle School teachers) my children have only gone to Middle School. The teachers are very competent and communicate quickly. I trust the teachers and always get positive reports from my children on what they have learned and what went on during the day. It is a SHAME that so many parents are NOT involved with their children's education. I could count on my hand how many parents showed up for PTA & Parent Teacher Conferences. Everyone is quick to point the dirty end of the stick towards the teachers. These teachers deserve an award for patience, persistence and durability. I like the new principal, I find him very personable and seems to be genuinely concerned and shows heart. He has a huge task at hand and without parental support, he is doomed. Come on parents, support your children and their future!!! This school can be a 5 star school, it just needs a couple things to fall in place. I know I will continue to be at the school on the regular."

    "This school would be great if parents started holding their kids accountable for their actions. The teachers try their hardest to promote great learner techniques, but with the constant distractions it's hard for those who want to learn. I feel for the teachers who are caucasians because it's a struggle for them to be taken seriously and they are REALLY great at their job. Parents remember it's not a teachers job to teach your child respect, it's starts at home. Also, what is disturbing is that the kids are on a set bathroom schedule. Why? Because kids would meet up and fight! Ridiculous!"

    "I believe this school was on the right track but the lack of strong leadership has caused this school to decline. The administration needs to be replaced with strong leaders who really care about the students. A lot of the good teachers were run off by the administration and the remaining teachers are barely holding on despite the lack of cooperation from the administration. Change the principal with an experience and proven leader and I believe the school could be as great as it once was. If I had the option today I would not allow my children to return to this school unless the princpal was gone and the teachers were being held accountable for their class."

    "This school has no leadership, no structure and has a high turnover in administration. The school has numerous fights and is unsafe. I am a parent who visits the school quite often and I see first hand the daily chaos at this school. The MSA scores are horrible and there getting worse every year. The Principal tells you what she thinks you want to hear but trust me, she does what she wants to do. I would never recommend this school to anyone who wants there children educated and safe. My child attended for a couple of years but once Mr. Roseman left, the school fell apart."
