    "Only High school in gaston county that offers the IB program, Huss is given a bad reputation because of the apartments that are located near it, some not even being in Huss district."

    "I don't go to this school, I don't have kids who go to this school yet. I have spoken to students of this school as a volunteer and I live two blocks away so I see the students every day. Let's get the facts out on the table... Hunter Huss's graduation rate is rising. There has been a significant investment in re-facing the school building and improving the grounds. I noticed a sprinkler system being added the other day. These things take time, but kids do better if their surroundings are better. The future is promising. People will point the school doesn't have a racial majority. There are more non-white students than white students. I'll point out, this is true for the world and people need to get a grip on that. I'd like to see the school move to have a dress code. Some of the kids who go to the school could dress better and a dress code would eliminate some of the clothing choices from the equation. I was fortunate to visit an AP or IB class for Engineering week, I liked how those kids acted and behaved."

    "Despite years of county neglect and efforts to undercut its IB program, Huss High succeeds in graduating thoughtful, learned, and impassioned students. Like so many urban schools it struggles with serving the lowest and highest achievers of its population. Thus, Huss' standardized test scores are middling at best. But tucked away behind these stats are committed, passionate, and informed teachers making a difference in my son's life. For that, I am eternally grateful. In consideration of full disclosure, I have another child at Highland Tech (another great are school; magnet school). However, the strength of the IB program at Huss dwarfs Highland's curriculum for college preparedness. For this reason, I recommend Huss."

    "Huss is not a terrible school. While there are a diversity of students from different backgrounds, the majority of the kids make a serious effort to challenge themselves. Huss is home of the only high school IB program in the district. The middle school program is at York Chester, so those kids end up at Huss. There are a wide variety of courses to offer. I think people judge schools like Huss based on hearsay and not from actually getting involved in the school and the community. Mrs. Farris and her team of administrators, teachers, and staff really showed that they love their Huskies this year as Huss dealt with several student deaths."
