I'm currently a freshman at Haynes and love it. There is a large amount of homework and projects depending on the teacher, but overall I've learned a lot. Everybody seems to know each other and we all get along. Our sports are continuing to grow and reach the best they can be, but we only go up to a sophomore class this year. We will add another grade each year so until we get a senior class we can't have competitive high school sports except for soccer and volleyball. Other than that it's a really great school!

This is my son's first year. It is more than he is used to (homework and classwork and projects) however I believe it likes it overall. I do as well. Prepare your elementary age children for a little work each night if you choose this school. Your child first must be tested to qualify for admission here. Anothr important note...Haynes now goes up to the 10th grade...so it is 6-10 grades. They will add a grade each year.
