New principal this year and she has set the tone for a responsive and caring faculty. Parents, stay involved - join the PTO and SAC. I have only good things to say about the quality of teachers and the experience my child is having.

in my opinion the teachers are great as long as you dont mess with them. It has great fine arts such as art, dance, chorus, ect. I do wish that it was more fun because all we do is work and 6th graders dont get any field trips, the dances arent that great either. Overall we do have great academic practices and state competitions and most teachers are awesome

First off, I would love to speak to the person whom rated this school an " A" in ANY area! Our child been here since 6th we have had nothing but problems, we have been discriminated against because we lived in Myakka and we have been called " Racists" by one admin staff member solely because of where we live. My child has been suspended so many times because of absences just from suspensions WE were reported to truancy! He has excessive classroom absences. If your child is in any way not cookie cutter or has any degree of problems or difficulties of ANY TYPE, you may want to research ALL POSSIBLE options before choosing this school, they TRULY don't want to be involved. This school is lacking teachers who care and needs more quality teachers and is equally lacking in leadership and EFFECTIVE DISCIPLINE PROCEDURES. Not so sure who is overseeing this school??? So many issues in so many different areas. The only reason we haven't made school board complaint because I fear retaliatory actions by this school so I will be making formal complaint on my child's last day there. I only gave it 1 star because I had to " rate" to submit my post.

Currently go to this school. The principal stereotypes (no doubt about it) I was called to the office almost everyday in my 6th grade year for stuff I didn't do and they had no proof of. Some of the teachers are okay I guess. If I had a choice I would not be going here. Glad it's my last year.

I agree with the most recent review. I feel that none of the staff want any parent involvement unless it's just to raise money. Emails take a while to be responded to. They expect the 6th graders to take care of any issues they have on their own at school. Not all kids are assertive enough to speak up to adults. There aren't any conferences to go over report card which would allow the teacher to give their student feedback.. They're all work and no play, there isn't any balance. No school dance, no field trips no creativity. They just now started an art class because they have to many students. They want a bunch of honor students to make them look good I know because my daughter is one of them, they recruit honor kids, but why not show their appreciation by dirtying them some fun every once in a while.

I feel the principal and at least one assistant principal stereotype. If they feel your child does not fit into their mold they will do anything to get them removed from the school. Instead of helping a child to improve they concentrate only on negative feedback.

I currently attend Haile and I love it. The principal is really weird and way too strict on the good kids and really easy on the bad kids. I only had a bad experience with one teacher (not mentioning any names). She gave my class a really hard time and didn't help us out. Haile has an exceptional fine arts program and a very clear program on how to advance and be higher in your studies. I love Haile and wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

This school would be ok if the teachers acted the way they do at all other schools we've ever sent our kids to. I'm guessing it comes from the top down so Ms. Kerley is not showing a good example of how teachers need to react to parents with concerns. Right now the teachers put any emails from parents on the backburner and only respond if they have time. A lot of discipline issues and extra rules for kids who are good anyway making them feel like they can't be trusted. If I had to choose a school all over I'm not sure I would pick this one.

This is the worst Middle School. Moved here a year ago sent my child for one year then pulled her out. To much fighting and they just don't care if your child has problems or not. Because they don't want to help.

I went to Haile and it was great, there are a lot of things to get involved in. They are very strict but thats what keeps most of the kids in line and most kids don't like the gold card thing but I think its good, and the music programs are some of the best in the county/state. Most of the kids that don't like the school are the kids that goof off all the time and then their parents wrote bad reviews for the school even though its a wonderful school.
