Hall High School Reviews

The school has excellent academics, great sports and fabulous arts programs to give every student something to do. There is a wide range of language classes available for students to take, including Latin, Chinese, Spanish and French! All the teachers are awesome, and they are truly invested in the students growth and learning. Teachers are always willing to put in extra work to help a student succeed, no kid is forgotten about in the classroom. This school helped prepare me for college in so many ways, making the transition very easy. The classes are difficult but manageable, they really hep prepare the students for college from the beginning of 9th grade.

Not a lot of connection between faculty and students. Make the student faculty committee a bigger deal! Also, the bathroom issue needs solving.
Hall has a very comfortable environment for learning and making new connections. Teachers are helpful in guiding students along, and rigorous courses challenge students to develop important skills. Hall also offers a wide array of AP classes, which is something not every high school has. This creates better opportunity for students to be prepared for college courses, and also instills stronger work ethic. Lastly, Hall has a very large selection of clubs, but I would like to see more clubs that will hold significance when applying to colleges. For example, we have clubs like Model UN and National Art Honors Society, and I think these are the kinds of clubs to which should be paid more attention.
