George Ellery Hale Middle School Reviews
This school has a mixed bag of terrific teachers and incompetent teachers. it is overcrowded, so if your child has a tendency to get "lost in the crowd," this is not the school for you. However, it is considered one of the best middle schools in Los Angeles. The principal is caring and concerned about the kids (when you can get through to him). They have some good music and art programs, also.
I have to totally disagree with Erin. We aren't in the 50's or 60's anymore and this is the age where kids start to experiment with make-up so that your child does not look like a clown in high school...
I really think that the dress code needs to tighten up. I think that the boys and girls should dress properly.
For example, the girls need to wear appropriate clothing AND NO MAKE UP. They are to young!!!!
Please consider this next year in your dress code policy.
