The teachers are great, they participate in school functions such as pep rallies.
They are usually available before and after school to help with questions regarding the classwork and really care about the students. The school has a ton of clubs so there's a place for everyone to get connected! The guidance counselors try to make sure everyone is ready to graduate and help with college stuff. It's a great atmosphere to be in.

I moved from Greenville, TN to the Halls community in 2015. I was a newcomer and had no relations in the area. It was when I first went to Halls High school, met my teachers and Principle, who were all welcoming and helpful. It was there I met new friends and became a part of the community. Halls High School has a great learning environment and always strives the extra mile to give students what they need to succeed in the classroom and in real life. I cannot stress how welcomed and accepted I felt from all the staff and members of the school, and just the welcoming environment for students to work together and socialize. The school was progressive in protecting everyone equally but kept the core rules and ideals that stood the test of time in Halls. If Halls has taught me anything, it's that with good grades, good friends, and getting the help you need can lead you to success anywhere in life.
Halls High School was an excellent 4 years of my life! Great teachers, and resources, all though it could use some cosmetic upgrades. I never felt unsafe in any way. Every teacher I had was amazing and willing to help! Overall, it was a great atmosphere to learn in!
