Open Quote Principal Smith at Farley isn't friendly at all. She makes you feel unwelcomed at the school. She has taken upon herself to make changes to fit her own personal needs. She targets certain adults to make them feel like they don't know what to do. Close Quote

Open Quote Farley is a great place for children to learn and grow. Very involved parents and teachers who are committed to teaching and raising kids to think, have manners, treat others with respect, be an asset to their community. Full-time nurse, great student/teacher ratio, weekly computer lab, wonderful library, gifted program, daily broadcast by 5th grade students, counselor, math team, very clean. All of this in a continued growing part of south Huntsville. Feeds into one of the best middle and high schools in the state. Close Quote

Open Quote Great teachers who love their jobs. Small classroom sizes which give a higher teacher to student ratio. Wonderful opportunity for 5th graders and parents to take a trip to Williamsburg, VA. Only public Huntsville City School to offer this. Great family community that supports PTA activities. Feeds into wonderful Challenger Middle & Grissom High.
AMSTI & AL Reading Initiative school. Math Team, Morning Broadcast TV show produced by 5th graders, SPACE for gifted students, weekly computer lab, music, art, "Every Day is Library Day," patrols, school store, yearbook team, annual talent show, Super Kids Day, Fall Festivals, Santa Secret Shop, Sock Hops, Gary's Garden club, Library Booster Club, and many more.
The first Farley school goes back to 1855 where the Farley community resides at the Tennessee River just south of Huntsville. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
