    "If you look at Hinkley's rating, you have to wonder why it is so low. It comes down to the school's leadership. Hinkley's administration promotes low academic expectations. Teachers are told that giving low grades will hurt the self esteem of the students. This is their rationale for providing inflated grades. The principal brags that the campus is one of the safest in the state. With over 30 fights per year, how can this be true? Immigrant students with poor English skills are not provided adequate help in the school's woefully inadequate ELA program. Most are totally unprepared for life outside of the "shelter" that the poorly trained Hinkley teachers provide. The hallways are noisy, crowded, with little monitoring and student self control. If there is a solution to HInkley, it may be state takeover or the removal of the administration with strong school board oversight. The current admins apparently can blow smoke in the face of the school superintendent and others in high places in the school district. Unless this occurs, I would warn anyone from working as a teacher at this school or from attending it as a student."

    "Hinkley High School has the potential to be an absolutely fabulous school. The students who attend this school are absolutely fantastic and the cultural divsity is celebrated by all who attend, including staff. The athletics programs are gaining in their level of competitiveness and respect, with hard working coaches and establishing summer strength/conditioning programs to help gain interested and dedication in our sports programs. The arts department produces outstanding performances in choir, drama and marching band. Teachers and councelors at Hinkley genuinely have a passion for seeing students succeed and extend opportunities for students to get post-secondary education. Teachers are often found well beyond their duty day in their classroom helping tutor students with their work."

    "According to the Denver Foundation, Hinkley is a beacon of hope in the north metro area. Hinkley offers IB programs and other pathways to help students find a direction in life. Hinkley offers the IB Biomedical Sciences pathway, Audio-Visual Pathway, Business Pathway, Marketing Pathway and Performing Arts Pathway. Additionally, Hinkley has more concurrent enrollment classes offered for dual credit at high school and college than any other school in Aurora. Hinkley has a partnership with CSU and CCA. Students who attend Hinkley and qualify to attend CSU automatically qualify for a minimum of $2500 per year scholarships. Hinkley is working hard to make a difference for the community."

    "I'm an alumni and my two word description of Hinkley is; terrible school. This school thrives on conformity. If you're even a little bit different from the herd of sheep that populate this school. You're seen as a freak, loser, and have people tell you, "you deserve to die". Teacher's are no better then the students as they encourage the student body to outcast the "different" people. Sure, many may say this is a part of the highschool experience. But this school takes that experience to a whole new level. Aside from that, the level of education you'll get is below average. They try to disguise their incompetence of teaching by saying. "Look at us, we're in IB school." As if the only thing that makes them a "good" school is the fact they have IB. Yet, they don't even compare to Cherry Creek schools without IB. Overall, the student body is nothing more then a herd of sheep, the teachers are no better then the students and the only thing their proud of is a sign that says "IB School" by their main entrance. If you're even considering putting your student in this school. Don't. You'll regret it."
