    "I attended from 2008 to 2010. Bullying runs rampant here, and nothing is done. For me it ranged from name calling to food being thrown at me at a football game. The last straw came when the police raided my home over a false rumor that someone had started out of boredom, and I wound up dropping out of school to earn my GED. And I firmly believe that dropping out was probably the best educational decision I ever made. Bullying aside, the teachers are incompetent and spend more time writing students up for stupid offenses than actually teaching. And in one of the humanities classes, the teachers think it's okay to play a "game" that from what I understand meets state definitions of corporal punishment; if students break any of the predefined rules, they can be made to stand against the wall in uncomfortable positions. When this was reported to administration and subsequently nipped in the bud, I was pulled into the hall and lectured by the teacher for being the one who spoke up. Then he tried to do it again the following year and got mad when I told the Vice Principal. I implore any parents reading this never to send their child to the school. You will only regret it."

    "Racist and very little support for anyone here. Just be friends with administrators to have your kids treated nicely, otherwise, don't expect good things."

    "I have been a student at HHS for the last 3 years and have loved it. The key to the school is to get involved and put effort into your work. The course selection is excellent and teachers really care about their students. HHS is a very unique place full of diversity and opportunity. Having taken all honors classes, I truly feel ready to apply to college and feel confident in my studies. I feel lucky to go to HHS and so should others"

    "Sad to see this school be rated so high. As a former student the school is based off mediocrity and assists other achieve it while ignoring the advanced students who need the help. With all bad teachers aside, there is only one teacher i consider an actual teacher that is able to teach. I would have no complaints if the guidance department did their job to help me get into the colleges. They refused to send transcripts and even when they did they were not sent properly. Because of this problem my application was not reviewed in time and was automatically rejected by the time the guidance department realized their mistake. Who would be satisfied if you are to be at a top tier college but your limit is at the mercy of the guidance department that do not want you to succeed."
