    "I graduated from HTHMA and felt that I was actually more prepared for college than most of my peers. In HTHMA they give the students a lot of freedom, which is excatly like college. The teacher provides you with knowledge and all the tools you need to complete a project. They will give you ample time in class and after school to work on it and receive help. But at the end of the day it was up to us to chose how to spend our time. In college no one is holding your hand to make sure you get something done. It really gave us a sense of responsibility which made us take such great pride in our work. Also no one is going to tell your HTHMA student that Christopher Colombis 'discovered' Amercia. We learn real facts. And often times had debates about various historical and present events. I learned to listen and really try to understand other people's points of view while also not being afraid to express my own opinion. To accept that not everyone comes from the same background or culture as you that how to actually have an intelligent conversation. I believe this school creates responsible and respectful people and I wouldn't trade my high school experience for anything in the world."

    "I have many stories to share about how much they've done for me and many students in my graduating class would be able to share the same. If I were to give any advice to an unsure parent, I would say, allow your student to experience this school for themselves. Communicate with their teachers and the schools leadership. Talk to current students and alumni and ask them about their experiences. Allow your student to grow at this school and experience learning in a different way and you will see them blossom into scholars, ready to take on higher education without hesitation."

    "HTHMA provides a wonderful learning environment where students are treated are like adults- where they are responsible for their own learning and have the ability to interact with their teachers one-on-one and develop relationships with them. I am a HTHMA alum and I have had no issues with college-level courses. I scored very well on my SATs and was accepted to all of the 4-year institutions I applied to. As I said, the education at HTHMA is what you make of it. The most valuable experiences I had at HTHMA were the ones that I couldn't have had anywhere else. I interacted with my teachers, worked on projects hands-on (as opposed to tests straight out of a textbook), and I had internships that opened my eyes to what the world outside of school is really like. Truly a great opportunity for parents who see the value in a well-rounded education."

    "I agree with all the negative parent & student comments. Fortunately for my daughter I recognized these flaws about the school within the first months of school and started looking into the school's accountability act, and meeting with principal and teachers about the curriculum, or lack thereof, but getting nowhere. Staff is all well prepared to avoid answering direct questions, which basically cleared up any doubts I might've had about the school and made my decision easy. Unfortunately, I had to leave my daughter through a full year of HTM (8th grade) where she earned As and Bs -based on the school's standards , which are basically nonexistent. My daughter's freshman year of high school was tough, and even though she missed her HT friends she was glad she was back to a 'real school' where she was being tested and pushed to do better. She is now a 10th grader and is in full swing of high school and preparing for college, because contrary to what HT claims public schools do prepare kids for college. Sorry to all the parents who are seeing their kids' college careers be a struggle to them. I knew more of us would start speaking up and unveil the truth behind this school."

    "College is hard, and anyone who is not responsible enough to care about their own future will not succeed! Sure, there are a few students who are used to having parents or guardians telling them what to do at all times. And when they fail, they must blame someone else. I graduated within 4 years of a 4-year university, and I was not a straight A student. I must admit that, I took remedial classes in college myself but I went to summer school and made up for those credits. The exhibitions, POLs, internships, and projects that are though at HTHMA really help students to get an idea of college, and to be prepared for it. You don't get any of this at a regular public school! When sitting in a 200 student class, I would participate and ask questions. This is because when I graduated HTHMA I was confident enough to know that I had the right tools to navigate in the 'real world'. Some of the classmates that graduated with me, didn't even attempt to stay a full semester because they needed a 'break'. Who is to blame HTHMA? Every student is responsible for their own decisions! The school is diverse, just like college, just like the world. - HTHMA Alumni"
