    "With two kids in high school, we chose to move to Hopatcong from a very highly rated, affluent Essex County town. We haven't regretted the decision for a moment. The school may be smaller, offering less options, but the personal attention my kids receive is invaluable. My kids participate in Football and Track and LOVE their teams. The kids in Hopatcong have been taught from very young to be accepting of those with disabilities, instead of simply shipping them all off to "special schools" where they don't have to interact with them. Hopatcong is educating their kids to be good citizens, good human beings."

    "My children are not at this school yet, and will go out of district before they're ever allowed in HHS, unless major changes take place. There are VERY few AP/Honors courses. There are barely any sports programs compared to local districts. The entire freshman sports program was eliminated. There is no field hockey; no volleyball; no ice hockey; no swimming; no lacrosse; no winter/comp cheer; no gymnastics. This school is constantly losing enrollment and while the inside of the school is modern and nice looking, the grounds are a joke. There's one football/track field (no turf), one baseball and one softball field and that's it. Everything else (soccer, tennis) has to be hiked through the woods to the grounds behind the civic center and that facility is awful. There's only one gym and the auditorium is tiny."

    "HHS is a poor high school. The leadership is disingenuine and self-serving. I know the district well and the people in the high school. The teachers are stifled, Guidance has been a disaster since the departure of a truly student-centered man, and students are not being uplifted. Teachers and students can immediately pick up on administrators who are only out for themselves and it has a tremendous impact upon morale. Even some secretaries are just plain mean and should retire or leave. The principal, vice principal, guidance director, two counselors, a long time guidance secretary and one particular main office secretary should leave. They are bad for the district on multiple levels."

    "I am currently a student at Hopatcong High and I agree with the fact that too much is going into the extra-curricular activities more than the academics. They have been class after class away and it is not fair. There are barely any AP & Honors classes. Many students are horrible and teachers do not seem to do anything about it when they should. It reflects how others see our school, especially when kids are right outside the building smoking."

    "Overall, schools are good. However, I feel that for the # of students in the town, we should have more schools. Agree that school should focus less on the sports extracurricular and more on the academic, e.g. math, science, arts."
