    My child has been attending Hayden schools from 3rd through 6th grade so far. Before we moved to Hayden he hated going to school and begged to stay out on a regular basis. Since being at Hayden he has not complained the first time about going to school. I am very pleased with the education my child is receiving at Hayden Middle School. All teachers are very helpful and have no problem answer any questions or helping come up with a solution for any concerns you may have. The principal is great and does not allow nonsense such as bullying etc. in his school. This is a good home town establishment with high standards. I have had family members attend Hayden schools from 1st - 12th grade and their kids are now attending Hayden. It's just a great school system.

    My children and I have had nothing but positive experiences at Hayden Middle School. My children and I love the teacher's they are very caring and seem to love teaching. We moved to Hayden just for the school system and haven't regreted it so far.

    I have had nothing but positive experiences since my children have been at Hayden. We moved from Gardendale and I was a little concerned but now after hearing some of the going ons at Gardendale such as excessive bullying fighting and so on I know Hayden wouldn't put up with it which I am thankful for. Keep up the great work Hayden. Go Wildcats!!!!!!
