I really enjoy the art classes and some of the teachers. I believe that some of the teachers should grade faster in order for students to better their grade before the quarter ends. Every student learns differently, therefore, I believe that teachers used incorporate various teaching tactics.

I'm a high school senior, I loved my experience at Hale-Ray. They have a great variety of electives to choose from and they all give a specific aspect of a certain topic. They also have a great engineering program with a great amount of resources that help me achieve my academic goals.
This is a great school if you like personalized teaching. Class sizes are generally 20 students or less in a classroom. I graduated in 2013 with 92 other students to put the school size into perspective. This did make some of our athletics challenging, with such a small talent pool to pick from. The classes offered were fairly diverse, although I would like to see classes like personal finance and personal fitness be requirements instead of electives.
