School Reviews

  • Recommended October 06, 2012 - Hallsville School District is probably one of the best and fastest growing schools in East Texas. They are "exemplary". The majority of the teachers truly care about the students. There are many activities for the students to be involved in. As a Parent who graduated from Hallsville, my Son is currently a student at Hallsville. I attended all 12 years at Hallsville and my Son is currently a junior at Hallsville - having attended all his school years at Hallsville. The school facilities are "TOP NOTCH" at this school. Hallsville is a town on the grow!!! - Posted by Parent
