Overall, It is a good school. But, It lacks in certain fields and need improvement in standards with making the School Codes a little more clearer. I'd be nice If more technology was involved around the activities and more tactile methods of learning.

The school is only average at best. They only concentrate on sports and teachers children. They seriously need guidance on how to pick teachers. You don't have to know how to teach just be kin to someone.

Hokes Bluff is a great place to live and go to school. The teachers are awesome and the athletics are incredible. 7 state championships in the past 7 school years. Football in 2001, Baseball in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, & 2008. No other school in the state has anything like that! Put that with a community that loves their school and you have one of the best possible places to be! Go Eagles!

Hokes Bluff offers a variety of classes such as AP History in the classroom and many other advanced classes online and through IVC. Hokes Bluff also offers a wide variety of clubs and organizations to be involved in. The community of Hokes Bluff is small and has very high morals the community as a whole is very friendly and
