    "My daughter is about to finish her freshman year at HC. She has found the faculty to be interesting and engaged. She has made great friends and has been involved in many ways. When choosing schools last year, HC was our first choice and it would be again today. Every school will have all types of people, whether students, faculty or parents. We have been very pleased with our experience at HC."

    "In my opinion, a mythology has developed around HC lately. The mythology holds that student s poor grades must result from some elevated academic rigor at HC and reflects favorably on the faculty and the administration. This could not be any farther from the truth. The reality is HC has suffered a serious lack of leadership the last few years and it has really started to be reflected fully in the poor quality of faculty and subsequently the grades of students. Do not misunderstand, students ultimately have responsibility for their grades, but as a parent who pays a considerable amount of money for the education offered at HC I could not be more disappointed in the quality of the faculty. On balance I have not been impressed with the faculty. A number of the instructors have little or no teaching experience. I was shocked to discover a number of instructors with not only limited teaching experience, but also no formal training in the subject they are teaching. The faulty and the administration should be held accountable for their responsibilities just as the students are held accountable. There are far better schools here locally more interested in educating and growing your child."

    "Weak "administration" and very weak "academics." Head of School and Dean care nothing about the students, except the ones whose parents they are trying to brown nose. Kids openly brag about how their parents got them out of trouble because "they're friends with the Head of school." (Trouble being busted for drinking at parties or smoking pot.) The dean refuses to deal with the major undercurrent of bullying. HCHS presents a great front, but once you're in, it is a less than desirable "education." I wouldn't put my dog there now knowing what I know about that place."

    "Check out the college acceptances..... Not anything different than your local public high school. The majority of graduates go to ATM, LSU, OU, TCU, Baylor etc.... nothing special about that.... If you have aspirations of going to a prestigious and/or Ivy League school I would send my money elsewhere. Focus on a college prep program that actually prepares the kids and has results in their college admittance data. If you're looking for an excuse to not parent your child and think the school will do so, don't send your kid to HCHS. The administration is weak and will not make tough decisions regarding the discipline. (But then again if you are looking for loose accountability, this might just be the school for you) There is an undercurrent of kids who DONT do the right thing and the admin does nothing! Please, please do your homework and seriously consider all of your options when deciding on a high school for your child. Life is short. Regret is tough. Just because it says "Christian" doesn't mean they embody your principles. I made that mistake, thinking we were a team. A Teen is a fragile being."

    "Private school pricetag; public school education. $80,000 plus would have gone a long way towards college costs. Same curriculum (and textbooks) as local district high school. Be sure to check out where the graduates are going to college."
