Nathan Hale Middle School
Since 1976, Nathan Hale Middle School has provided a quality education for students from the communities of Crestwood, Robbins and Alsip. Our staff plays an important role in preparing students for high school and beyond. At Nathan Hale Middle School, the staff works tirelessly to create an environment that promotes learning and individual growth. Our students benefit from a rigorous and engaging student-centered curriculum designed to equip them with the skills needed to be successful in high school.
Our teachers focus their instruction on improving students’ mathematics and literacy skills. Teachers collaborate frequently to analyze data and work together to help students be more successful. Staff is given time to research, identify, implement and discuss effective teaching strategies. Professional development is focused on improving instruction and student learning. Sixth and seventh grade students who require additional support in reading are placed in the READ180 program. We also offer a Skill Building Class which concentrates on specific skills in reading and math in an effort to help improve student achievement and support RtI. Using the PBIS philosophy, students are taught to be Responsible, Respectful and Safe. Expectations are taught and reinforced throughout the school year. Students are rewarded for exhibiting positive behavior.
We encourage students to get involved in one or more of the following activities:
