Hartford School District Reviews

So far, my experience with the Hartford School District has been a pleasant one. The teachers that work in this district are extremely capable of teaching students, and they care about each and every student's individual success. Additionally, the Hartford School District makes sure to keep parents up to date with educational events, showing that they care about parents being involved in their child's education. Even though the Hartford School District has done an excellent job at engaging parent and helping students achieve success, I would like to see a change with the variety of in the meals that they provide for lunch and breakfast. If this change is taken into consideration then the Hartford School District would be perfect.

My Experience was fairly ok, i would like to see more engagement, I feel like every High School Student should receive the same amount of effort and consistency as others. On the teachers behalf i feel like there should be less thinking about the check and actually making sure everyone learned the material not rushing through it and having the mindset that its there fault. NO its the teachers fault if 7 students out of 24 don't understand the material you don't move on until everyone as a whole learns it. You fail as a teacher if you pick and choose which students to teach your not doing your job and should care about every student receiving the same education.
For me I feel like the education isn’t that good at all it was actually easy. That’s why I passed all my classes. You have to actually not to any work to fail the classes. The people you meet are amazing and they all have good vibes and bring their own spirit to the school. I wish the teachers would teach things that would make sense and more in a harder and in-depth way. Sports is good. Almost everyone plays a sport in high school. The athletic side is on point A+. Oh and I wish we would change the uniform policy to a school shirt and any bottom you want just not too short and not too holy. The lunch is nasty I don’t eat school lunch and I get it for free. That’s needs a huge change. But other than that school is going good as far as moving along your years of high school
