Halifax Area School District Reviews
I like that many of the teachers make themselves available to help students whenever they need it. In addition, with the current renovations, the technology and facilities are very nice. The cafeteria works very hard to provide healthy choices in a wide variety. Although I am appreciative of my school, the small size of the school and the town is a hindrance on the available opportunities. There is very little diversity or exposure to real life situations.
Overall not a good experience. And not one I would choose again for any of my children. Going to school board meetings is like going to a filming of Jerry Springer. Lot's of in fighting, lack of transparency and very little character with many of the school board members. It is clear that teachers feel devalued which many times leads to poor performance. A small school with huge money problems which leads to a lack of proper resources for children and families.
The Halifax Schools have some of the friendliest teachers and students in the area and really focuses on building character, which is why everyone is so friendly. We have a program called "Discovery" which is a 30 minute period in which the students spend doing different activities that promote better characters.
