    Halldale Elem. IS a great school. The principal faculty and staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Parents here understand that their involvement in their children's education is necessary. Three of my children attend Halldale Elem.and are doing fantastic.

    My daughter came to this school for 5 years. She has had a perfect time there. The after-school program really helped me I didn't have to pay someone to take care out of school. She played sports and did activities while I was getting ready to pick her up.

    My daughter attended this school from K-2 and I loved this school. The parents are very involved and the teachers were great. She also attended the after school program and the staff was great.

    I want to congratulate the Principal for adding to our children in Halldale an after care program Mitch Corp. I think that is an excellent programs for our kids. The staff and the co-founder of the program is always in good care of our children along with their school curriculum and extra activities such as arts sports and even trips around the city to museums recreational parks etc... that our kids can learn history and at the same time have safe fun while we parents work. I encourage the school to continue and the parents to support this program for during school year calendar and summer break. Working parents like me is hard to find a good program along with caring staff such as this for our kids. Thank you again Halldale Principal for continuing caring in our children's academics and after care programs.

    This is a great little elementary school. My oldest son has attended 1-5 grades. There are some really great teachers but there are also some teachers that don't work with all personalities. The principal is terrific. She has a great connection with the kids. There isn't much for extracuricular activities. No sports or music or arts programs. They also don't have much to offer in the way of after school programs.

    The quality of the Academic Program is excellent. Both of my kids were enrolled into the Gate Program and since the 1st grade have achieved above average scores on the standardized testing. There is no longer a music program offered but they are always putting on Musical Performances of high caliber great coreography. Many parents are involved in the school's activitites

    My 2 daughters transferred from private schools to Halldale Elementary School. I thought that they would be bored in this school because they would be too advanced. Much to my amazement and my childrens they were challenged by their respective teachers and asked to do extra work if they already knew the material. I was extremely please with the teachers. They have a unique and interesting way to get students involved in classroom work. The teachers try to get the attention of those students who tend to lag behind. My hats off to the teachers and principal at Halldale Elementary School.

    My son came from a private school to Halldale Ave. I felt very confident that the year was going to be a breeze but much to my amazement my son was behind in a couple of areas. The teachers at Halldale took the time to show me where he needed to be and also referred him to after school tutoring. If it wasn't for the switch from private to public I may have never found out accademically where my son needed to be. I've lived in the area for the past 10 years and I've seen a great cosmetic improvement in the school which I fell makes the kids fell proud to be a student of Halldale. However I felt that the school has gotten much better in extracurricular activities it would be nice if we had more.

    My sons both attend this school and seem to be excelling quite nicely! So far all the teachers are great when it comes to assisting the student reach for a higher goal and making the student feel worthy. I believe that's what's important... giving the students the confidence to believe they themselves can succeed with work and effort. My only suggestion is to offer more extracurricular activities for the students to participate in! Overall great work to all the teachers administrators and students at Halldale!
