Haley is supremely independent, but sometimes a little naïve, especially when it comes to arguing with her parents. She is not that bright, once rubbing her cell phone on her head for an hour because her sister, Alex, told her it would recharge the battery. Haley is embarrassed by her dad (and mom, at times), especially when he tries to buddy up to her boyfriend Dylan. She is concerned about her popularity at school which contributes to her embarrassment of her parents. She is learning to drive and is not very good, once driving through a park, not pulling over when being stopped by a cop, hitting a fire extinguisher and forgetting to put the car in park when she got out of it. She is afraid that she won't be accepted into a college but to the excitement of her and her family she is wait-listed by a college at the end of Election Day. After months of waiting and finally accepting that she won't be accepted into a college, Luke confesses that he hid her acceptance letter (along with alot of other mail) because he doesn't want her to go. In season 4, Haley goes off to college only to be kicked out for underage drinking and battery of a police officer.
