    My daughter started this school in fifth grade and now she is in 8th and we just moved her to a magnet school because we do not want to send her to McGavock next year. If I had my choice I would and she would also rather stay here one more year. This school is an excellent school yes there are a few teachers that should not be there but for the most part the school is wonderful. The principal is on top of her game there. She knows exactly what's going on she's constantly involved with the teachers students and parents. I have been very pleased and am sad to see my daughter leave....bottom line is ....My daughter is ahead of her game in the magnet school she just transferred to so I think that pretty much says it all!

    I have had nothing but good things from this school. So far you couldn't ask for better staff and Ms Downey is the best.

    I am currently in the 8th grade at DuPont Hadley. The school throughout the year has been getting very strict about dresscode and class rules. The 8th grade is the only grade that isn't allowed to carry backpacks we have a different tardy policy than any of the other grades and we are the only grade in the entire school that has a locker schedule. Making it even more difficult to carry all of our books from class to class. It's NOT fair because the teachers in our grade are very strict. DuPont Hadley is an okay school. I liked it better in my first 3 years there but the 8th grade is absolutely terrible!

    I have seen a big change in my son moving from the 5 to the 6 grade.A parent teacher relationship is a plus and sometimes is not always there. But most of the time we don't receive the information from our children.All in all this is a good school.

    My daughter has attended this school from 5th to 8th grade. I have seen the teachers work with her during a difficult year and the progress she made with the teachers and us(parents) working together resulted in a well balanced young lady that is still growing in maturity understanding and knowledge. I hope to see my daughter blossom into an individual with strong ideals and desire to make a difference in this world. I am grateful that we were able to experience such wonderful teachers principal assistant principal officer etc. and their guidance in this school for not only my child but all children attending this school.
