It is a great district with small to medium size classes. Great staff and amazing kids there too! Staff cares about each student and makes a point to have each student career and/or college ready. We have had our children in this district since kindergarten and have never been disappointed. There are lot of different activities the students can get involved in. The push student to be involved and active in the school activities.

As a now college student, I miss the teachers the most that I had a Halstead High School. They pushed us to be the best and helped us along the way. When people ask me what my favorite thing about high school was, it was easily my teachers. I always felt involved and cared for. I do believe that this school could be improved if there were a better connection between the administration and teachers. There always seemed to be miscommunication and disagreement between the two and I feel if they had worked together, there would have been a more cohesive team throughout the school.
I haven’t been at Halstead High School all four years of high school but in my short few years I’ve noticed a lot of things go on without administration acknowledgment. There have been quite a few instances when there was clear bullying and breaches of safety and privacy and the school failed to take action and the school failed to enforce more safety measurements.
