Hartford School District Reviews

Hartford Public Schools have wide variety of schools that many inner city students go to as well as students that aren't from the city of Hartford. Hartford School district has public schools, magnet, and technical schools that best fits every students desire for what they want to study and puts them on the career path for their future. Although the school district does give out free lunch, I would say that is one of the things they do need to improve. Also many schools and students have been affected by the budget that has recently happened so some schools are facing the issue of whether they have enough paper to print out their work for students. Overall, this school district is helping the inner city students who most believe who make it to college or even finish high school make it out to college.

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.
