27 Parent Reviews for Hale Elementary School

I have two children at Hale currently (2nd & 4th grade) and they both love going to school everyday- that says a lot right there, especially because start time is 7:30 a.m.. We have been very pleased with each and every teacher the kids have had. As well, the staff at the on site Mpls Kids is great! ...  Read more

Hale is an average school with the potential to be excellent. They have some excellent teachers and many more who could be excellent. Hale offers excellent activities as does their PTA. The parents are very involved, but tend to look out for and fight for "their own." When the Hale community (teachers, ...  Read more

Hale offers many postive after school activities through the community education program and there is a very high level of parent involvement. 3 out of the 6 teachers with whom our children have had, have displayed engagement and commitment to the learning of our children given the large classroom sizes. ...  Read more

Generally very good teachers (there are 2 to avoid in K, however), a friendly, safe community. Opportunities for advanced kids are insufficient (no advanced language arts for 4th graders) ...  Read more

Hale provides an excellent place to learn. The combination of parent involvement, strong pta, diversity, exceptional staff, and school pride really make Hale a special place. In turn, Hale is in high demand and forced to max out class size at many grade levels.This was an initial concern for us but was ...  Read more

Teachers are only focused on test scores, as stated by my child's kindergarten teacher. Class sizes are unacceptable, 28 students in K, making it impossible to provide individualized attention to children. Preferential treatment of students who are above grade level is given with a detrimental impact ...  Read more
