"I graduated Class of 1967. Good teachers, fun days, lots of friends and I'm still in contact with some of them. We just had our 50th reunion in June 2017. I saw some really cherished friends I hadn't seen in a long time. That was wonderful."
Barbara Reynolds, Class of '67
Every year our students take junior and senior level placement tests. The tests include the SAT, the science content exam, AP exams, and MAP state exams. One great way to help Hale High School is to volunteer to be a test monitor. Hale will need many monitors each year to help the testing period go smoothly. Training is provided.
