    A wonderful caring progressive open environment for kids to enjoy their first years of school. From the principal Mrs. Scarnecchia to every one of the teachers I have encountered (especially Mrs. McGee!!) I have found this school to be above and beyond expectations. VERY happy with it!!!

    I am only giving this school 3 stars because the principle is aweful. The teachers are super awesome. I have heard from several parents that she is abrasive cold and fake. However the teachers are incredible.

    So sad to hear that the current principal retired. She was fantastic! Really cares about kids and is always around in the hallways on the playground and in classrooms. She has really turned around the bullying problem and all three of my children feel happy and safe. The education they receive at Haisley is top notch!

    Both of my granddaughters have attended Haisley School. I have always been impressed by the great teachers and activities they have for the children. For example last year the whole school was involved in learning Spanish. Even the Kindergarten classes.

    We embrace diversity of all kinds! Our self contained physically handicapped students are mainstreamed and integrated with our general education classes and special friendships are made with students and staff!

    We love Haisley School. The atmosphere is one of learning and caring. Parents are always welcome to volunteer and encouraged to be involved with their children's school experience. There are many wonderful learning events offered for the children. The principle is active and visible at the school. The special education teams are second to none and are committed to working with the children who have special needs. We feel so fortunate to have our childen at Haisley.

    Haisley is an outstanding school. I have high expectations for my children and so do the teachers at Haisley. The kids are truly challenged. The PTO is very active and there are parents in the school helping every day. This is a quality school. I feel very lucky to have my children attending Haisley.

    Haisley is very strong in academic program. I have 2 boys in Haisley and they love it. The extracurricular activities are strong. The art program doesn't just teach them about impressionist artists she lets them make it. Same in the library computer lab and gym. Parental involvement is the key. Parents care and are always here to help. Some parents do more than others and all do what they can. It is the best there is in Ann Arbor. I can't tell you how happy I am with the faculty. The principal sets the tone and it is that the children come first. The new multi-purpose room will open Fall 2006 and will be beautiful.
