Hallsville High School Reviews
Rating 3.38 out of 5 42 reviews
Hallsville is an amazing school. It has great staff, teachers, academic competition, sports, and college readiness. It is a great school and I am very blessed to go there. I would recommend this school to people who are looking for a great and safe learning environment.
Hallsville High School is not a big school at all, it is what you call a middle sized school in mid-Missouri. Hallsville has a few clubs and extracurriculars available such as, FFA and quiz bowl. I wish they provided more options to get everyone involved.
The teachers and community really boost Hallsville High School to make it the good education system it is. The biggest downfall is the lack of diversity and class options. However the classes that students are able to take are taught by very knowledgeable and helpful teachers that enjoy being around the students. Our football team is the most funded sports program, which is expected; however, the other sports and their facilities could use a lot more care and attention.
What I like most about Hallsville High School is the fact that most of the staff are extremely knowledgeable and skilled in their respective fields. Most of the staff are kind as well, and encourage students to do their best in their academics.
Hallsville High School is an average school built for a small community. The teachers are kind and they provide some dual-credit and AP classes. The school itself is rather small with not very many resources and the fine arts department is rather small with almost no funding. The sports funding is mostly built to bettering the football team which isn’t the worse but is still a ways away from being the “best”
Hallsville has so much to offer. My family moved here just for the school district. Many of my fellow students pay to be here because they are out of district. We have one of the best bands. We were able to go to Hawaii and play for the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. Our band director was recognized by the state this year. Our UIL team is top notch.
Not much diversity. The teachers are great. But the food is terrible, and there’s so little options for after school activities. In addition to this, there’s very few advanced placement courses and no honors courses.
I had a very good math teacher my Junior year. I played in band all 4 years and am section leader. Hallsville is a supportive community and a very safe community to live in. We are only 6 miles away from a big city. The counselors at the school are very helpful with setting up the ACT and helping the students get into college.
In most of my classes I'm bored and not challenged by the curriculum.
Some of our clubs have gotten cut. Hallsville needs to improve on the extracurricular activities they offer.
I probably wouldn't choose this school again if I had to do it over. Hallsville has lost major funding and has just added on a new science wing last year that is already falling apart. I think Hallsville needs work on the building itself and needs to work harder to find teachers that are better suited for teaching here.
Most teachers really care about you and how well you do in there class, but a few teachers believe your opinion doesn't matter in discussions, your papers should only be graded to their "standards" of structure and not ways that have been proven to be useful in writings, and when doing research your beliefs have to match their in order to get a good grade. The school overall needs more funding because some of our clubs have been cut that I had been apart of for years.
Workload - some classes seem to overwhelm the students with assignments while others do not have any. Are the classes that have an excessive amount of homework more important than the classes that have none? My opinion is they should all have equal emphasis because if they are not important than why offer the class.
Most of the teachers are knowledgeable and take an interest in their students but there are a few that do not seem to care.
Safety measures have improved over the last couple of years and hopefully will continue to improve.
It a small town community and most people support the school. I would like to see more people attend girl's sporting events but this is not just a problem at our school. This is a problem everywhere because girl's sports just aren't as important as boy's.
I went from a really small town to a big school across the country. It was difficult to adjust to such a new environment, but i eventually got the hang of it. It was something i just had to learn on my own though.
