very good. i was in a special progress class with brilliant students
I attended this school, and it was a rite of passage... and by that I mean a horrible experience I had to go through to ultimately become successful. It is basically a prison that is overcrowded where some of the kids are animals. There is no control. Ideally, if your kid is in the honors track they will mostly be separated from the fray... but any of the general classes (i.e. health, phys ed) will be a problem.
coming from an 8th grader, the years i passed here at halsey are amazing and i've meet some of the best people ever, though there is a lot of drama and stress and rumors. lots of kids to drugs and other illegal activity/ are part of gangs. this school always encourages kids to be respectful and that is always their #1 rule. the dean and student councilor are always there to listen. If you are being bullied/sexually harassed the first thing you should do is go to your dean or student councilor they are all hears and they will always fix the problem because not only they listen, but they create a safe environment between the "bully" and the "victim" where you both share your feelings and why the situation that happened, happened.
School Policy- Parent Beware- No CoatsStudents are not allowed to wear coats when it is cold outside at recess or when they go out for lunch. They are supposed to carry layers in an overcrowded school bag since there aren’t any lockers otherthan gym. I spoke with admin and my son was permitted to wear his coat. It is absolutely absurd that this is allowed. It is a health safety issue.IEP Students- Parents have to monitor their child’s IEP to ensure that their child’s management needs and testing accommodations are being followed. We have had a very tough 3 years.Some teachers are good. But, I have found the ones that aren’t - are not supervised enough, and some of my child’s teachers were very inexperienced, and the work produced disappointing.
