    "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"

    "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."
