    "Henry County High School is a superficial environment. Many students feel like they are succeeding there, but are they? So what if you get all A's in High School, that means absolutely nothing if the classes were super easy and you aren't prepared for college. Out of all the teachers I have had, only one has challenged me, I was a straight A student until I took his class, I never studied, I never even had to try. But then I took Mr. Nesbitt's Chemistry class, and realized that being able to pass all my classes without trying was just stupid. School isn't supposed to be easy. We are supposed to work for what we get. Yet, at Henry County High School, as long as the administration's main concern is to look good, then all of their students are going to continue suffering."

    "I have children in college and HS. My children that are now in college took the honors classes offered at the HS. They tell me that nothing at the HS prepared them for college. One of my children is in an honors program at her university and she feels ignorant next to other honor students. It seems to me that the entire school system in this county attempts to do the things that will get them noticed or look good to any evaluating committees. But, there doesn't seem to be any substance to their actions, no passion for doing the right things... just a desire to 'look good'. Programs that teach character, citizenship, etc.. are implemented but the students see immoral behavior exhibited among teachers and administration. It is a very superficial place. If we had a viable alternative we would take it."

    "I have one child who graduated from HCHS and is excelling, SUMMA CUM LAUDE, at a major university. I have another child currently attending HCHS. He loves the honors classes because they challenge him. He also plays a sport, NOT football. He has great support from his coaches and teachers. I know we all like to think our child is the best, but from what I've seen, they work with those players who demonstrate the interest, drive and willingness to do the hard work required. Attitude plays a large part also. This school offers what urban schools cannot offer-- a real interest in the individual. If a student has a good attitude and is trying, then that student will have all the support they need. HCHS is EXCELLENT-- Keep up the good work!"

    "HCHS has provided my son with a excellent learning opportunity. Parents need to be doing their part at home and they will find a better outcome regarding their children. Sport programs are available for all children, parents need to participate. Football has provided my son with so many positive aspects that I can't say enough about the program and the coaches that have been on board in the past 4 years. Thanks go out to all for helping us raise our child, remember it takes a whole village to raise children. Looking for the positive or helping correct an area that needs attention is so much more productive, versus complaining."

    "In response to the parent that is putting the administration and director of schools down needs to step back and look again. My son is a senior this year and his 2nd year in football. As far as his academics he is doing leaps and bounds better than he was before he played football. Since he started playing football he refuses to miss school afraid of getting behind where as before he played football he could care less if he played or not. The coaching staff with the football team demands respect and school work be done; and not just respect at school but at home also. I have been told that if my son is disrespectful and i need help with him all i have to do is let the coaches know and they will help. I think the football team is a asset learning wise."
