In regard to classes (when I attended) high school students were given the choice of signing up for the Advanced Preparatory classes or the "regular" classes. As a student I knew I could not carry on with the AP Math and Science classes but I also knew that I could carry the weight of the English and History classes. I asked if there was any way that I could split my day to be able to do half AP and half non, and was told that "No, that just can't happen. It's either all or nothing." I was pretty surprised and was told that "There's not enough teachers to accommodate THAT kind of schedule." Again, the staffing situation may have changed (it has been almost 10 years now) but for those who are looking at the "big picture" this school may not be able to accommodate your student's academic needs. Also of note, the community, from the school students and the instructors and the administrative staff up to the county level, (as noted by another reviewer) is largely familiar with each other from childhood due to the fact that community is, by and large related to each other, by blood and or marriage. This may pose some discomfort for those who are transferring from other schools.

As a former student of Highland Home High School it gives me great honor to say that I am an alumnist of the school. This school is geared towards preparing kids for real life events they treat the students in high school as young adults preparing them for the next phase in life. The fact that Highland Home is a Kindergarden through 12 Grade school, the kids are familiar with each other from the time they start school until the graduate the advantage of this factor is that the students perform a bond that allows them to be able to help their peers out when they miss a day of school so that they are able to stay at the same pace as their peers. It allows them to support each other through out their education.

I have 2 sons that went to HHS along with myself. One is out now and going to the University of Alabama and the other one is a senior this year.. I think the school is great. Of course like any thing else you have to stay involved with what your children do to keep it all ok. Some teachers are the best and others could do better. I thank God every day i have HHS to have sent my children to. Rita Beasley

My son is getting a quality education at HHS. The faculty is great not only with the education of the children, but also with what is going on in their lives. They are not only teachers, they are also mentors.

I feel like the school has come along way from where it was. I think they have the right people in place, to make Highland Home one of the best in Alabama.

I'm not sure what other parents think of this school, but my son has been enrolled here for the past 2 yrs, and has just done so much better, and I credit the teaching staff for that.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Alabama used the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) to test high school students in reading, math, language, biology and social studies. High school students must pass the AHSGE in order to graduate. The AHSGE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to pass the test.

The different student groups are identified by the Alabama Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
