About Us » Awards


2024 has been a busy year (already) for awards at Hale. Here are some of the accolades we have received recently. 
From our Magnet Coordinator, Ms. Dehbashi:
Our NASA APP Development Team made it to the next step of the competition!! They get to participate in a live interview with NASA's Space Communication and Navigation Team!! Not a lot of teams were selected so I am very proud of our Huskies!! From the interviews, they choose the teams that will go to the Kennedy Space center. Keep your fingers crossed
Hale Charter Academy Gifted STEAM Magnet has been recognized as a #TopMagnetSchoolofExcellence for its commitment to high academic standards, school diversity, specialized curricula and instruction, family engagement, and community partnerships.
This wouldn't have been possible without your hard work and dedication! I am extremely lucky to be part of an amazing team!
A big shout out to Debbie and Leslie for helping with the MSA awards application.
