This is why I do not wish to send my child to either school.
I went to Hayes. Intelectually understimulating, filled with teachers that didn't care about students, and the facility itself was horribly run down.

My daughter went to Hayes for a year and a half, we moved and she went to John Adams for the remaining year and a half. Words can't explain the difference between the two schools, it's a shame that the kids at Hayes can't experience what the kids at JA have. Not only is it an academic school, it's very organized with good front office, good teachers, good parents, good sports teams and just an all around feel of excellence. Best middle school in the entire state and that's not just based on westest scores it's the overall experience.

Julie thank you for your comment.
I'm expecting my first child and trying to find out as much as possible about all of the education options in the area. It's nice to finally hear a good review of a school!

There are different website that give ratings based on test scores and allow parent comments.
Sadly I have to agree with one of the more negative comments I've read- mmany of us in WV don't realize how substandard some of our schoos are, because we don't know anything else. Sadly many of our schools, even the private ones (in some cases expecially the private ones) aren't the best learning environment.

I want my child to go to good elementary, middle, and high school programs. However in considering what programs would be the "best" for my child I also have to consider where the majority of the students will go when they move up to the next school level. While academics and safety are my top concerns, I doubt I would create a good learning environment, or a content child, if I forced my child to go to school with a completely different set of kids for each level of education.

I'm trying to find a good school district in my general area that has high quality eementary, midde, and high schools.

The problems at Hayes start at the top. Scott Monty the principal is incompetent and totally ineffective. The teachers bully the students. The students bully the students. The test scores are lousy. And it will be this way until they clean house there.
Parents complaints are ignored.

Everyone there and at the Board of Education knows about the problems and nobody will do anything about it.

I could not agree more.
I know some people don't take bullying seriously, but it is counter productive to a learning environment.
Often times the bullying, which is ignored, as you said, would be considered harassment and would result in criminal charges if the parties involved were adults.

No one can do anything about it, it's the gene pool. Stop making excuses.

There are some excellent teachers at Hayes. Unfortunately, they are almost outnumbered by the ones who show videos daily (When they show up) or play elementary school games to occupy the students and don't do real lesson plans. Won't even mention the way they dress. Mr. Monty needs to get rid of several of them.

My child attends MMS, and I've been quite pleased with the education she has received there. Her west test scores are high, she enjoys going to school, likes her teachers, and has had the opportunity to participate in extra curricular activities. Personally, I prefer the smaller school size. Although not an affluent area, I believe the school is doing the best they can with what they have.

Kids that have parents that care will be fine . The curriculum is the same county wide. If their in advanced classes they will be fine period . It all starts with Parenting
But I guess its just easier to blame the schools .

I attended Hayes for a year. It is by far one of the worst schools in WV. The staff are uncaring, unintelligent , pathetic people. The facility is in shambles. The students for the most part are wild animals. It's a horrible place.

Hayes and McKinley both have a greatschool score of 6 out of 10. McKinley has a little better test scores and better pupil to teacher ratio.

My kids have went to both schools and are in advanced classes. Both schools are fine . Not the top but not the bottom either . Parenting is everything . The school does not raise your child you do. They give them the work it is your job to see that its done .
