R. C. Hatch High School is one of the greatest schools in the Blackbelt region. For the 5th consecutive year, they have been named "Best High Schools" Bronze level by U. S. News and Report. This year, they were named a "Bright Spot" school because of graduation and attendance rate of 95%. The administrators are fair, and the teachers are dedicated to providing students with the knowledge and skills needed to be productive adults. I am proud to be apart of Hatch High School.

I am proud to be a part of a small community with a school that is making great gains. The principals are firm and fair, the faculty and staff are dedicated and professional and the majority of the students are raised well by parents and guardians.

The teachers are good but the principals do not care about the teachers or the students. Mrs. Turner does not know how to talk to the children or the teachers. If the teachers did not take pride in their work, R. C. Hatch will be nothing.

Robert C. Hatch High is a school where learning is a number one priority. I am currently a student at Hatch High school and, I can say it is highly recommended for other students. The teachers there are always on task and ready to work. The principal is well organized and well diciplinal toward students.

I am a former student of Robert C. Hatch High School. I think that it is a nice school to graduate from. The teachers are always willing to help their students out in any way possible. They have after school tutoring programs to help you understand and better yourself in a course(s) you do not understand. The principal is wonderful. She's open-minded and loves the students of Robert C. Hatch.
