If you are looking for community, Hall is a good place to find it. Because of the countless clubs, communities, and other various extracurricular activities, finding a group of quality friends and good interactions is easy, even for those who normally would have trouble. The bathrooms are absolutely disgusting and it's not uncommon for several things to be broken in them. If you happen to be transgender then the only gender neutral restrooms are far away from everything, so it's almost a given that you'll miss a lot more going to the bathroom than if you were cisgender. The classrooms are pretty nice and the technology is up to date and useful.

I am currently a senior at Hall High School. For the most part Hall has treated me very well. MY teachers have all been great and I have formed relationships with them that I will cherish forever. I am sad to be leaving this year, however, it's time. I was a Jazz dancer at hall and performed for many years in their annual show Pops N' Jazz. Its an amazing show with amazing singers dancers and the band is crazy good. They play all of the music live and we occasionally invite guest artists to perform with us. This year we had Marcus Printup form Jazz at Lincoln Center perform with us. It was an Honor.
I really like the variety of classes that I could take at Hall. The teachers do a great job educating the students and there is a strict system against bullying and discrimination of any ethnicity. One thing I would like to see a change of is the students knowledge on composting. In my school there is a compost bin, however, students don't know the use of it and are unsure of where it is located.
