    "I had the pleasure of being threatened by the Hinkley wrestling coach Kasey Wright in the school parking lot. He yelled at my family and I and told me he was going to punch me in the face when I told him to stop yelling at us. I had him charged with harassment and obtained a restraining order. I informed the school about his behavior and the principal Matthew Willis told me that they would look into the allegations. I emailed Matthew a week later to find out what had become of their investigation and he informed me that Kasey was still employed but he thanked me for informing them of the incident. I personally find this kind of behavior extremely unacceptable, especially around children. It seems to me that Hinkley enables and supports it willingly by continuing to employ a man with a violent history."

    "I think that Hinkley gets a bad rap & a lot of parents are too busy making excuses for their kids to actually see the good in the school. One of my kids graduated from there in 2011 with a double letter in Music and another will be graduating soon with letters & pins in Academics & Basketball. Hinkley has one of the Best IB programs in the state & the coaches are Great, if you give them a chance. I didn't really like the AD at first, but in all honesty, she is just doing her job. Don't hate her because your child isn't being coddled... This is High School, not Head Start!!!"

    "Concerned Parent: I have read your post, and am sorry to hear how disgruntled you are with the Athletics Program here at Hinkley High School. As the Athletic Director, League President and board member of the Colorado Athletic Directors Association, our athletics department follows all rules/ regulations/ policies set forth by CHSAA. If you have any specific concerns that are related to your personal situation with your son/daughter in regards to these policies, please know that my door is open to respectable conversation. Regards, Tristen Rogers Athletic Director"

    "This school is the worst school my child has ever attended. You try to contact a teacher and never get a response. The Athletics dept. is run by the most incompetent woman I have ever met. She is completely lacking integrity and will not give an honest or correct answer to your questions because she is totally clueless to the rules and regulations that control the sports she is in charge of. If your child is an athlete stay as far away from this school as you can. If your child is just a student then Pray a lot that your child is not smarter than the teacher, this school is the absolute worst as far as academics and Athletics. You really get the impression that they rounded up the worst candidates for teachers, Administrators, and coaches and gave them all a job at Hinkley. Absolutely no accountability for incompetence in the APS district. Run away from this school and all APS schools as fast as you can! 4 out of 10 rating, it's more like 1 out of 10. How sad for the students and parents to be unfortunate to live in the boundary for this school."

    "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."
