I am a former student attending at Huntington Park High School, HPHS for short, and I believe this school is gruesome. I'm in honors/AP and I still feel it isnt as challenging. Kids in there shouldn't even belong in there. The teachers teach horribly. I don't blame them. The school was too lazy or "poor" to hire certified teachers. I've been having subs for over a semsester. A whole semester gone by. The classes aren't even difficult what so ever. Even in honors/Ap. Not saying im a prodigy, but this school is slow... Too slow. Im a freshman and still got 3 more years of this! I dont recommend your child to enroll. I was forced by my parents so had no choice.

It wasn't a bad school. I graduated in 2008. I can honestly say that most of the teachers I had, cared for the students and wanted them to succeed. Even though they say the school was overcrowded, I don't believe that's a valid excise for the lack of effort most students give. If one can succeed, most can. The one thing that did impact me was the fact that the college counselor advised me not to seek higher education. I graduated with a 2.5 and could have attended a Cal State to say the least.

HPHS is my mother's alma mater. Her graduating class was in 1930. She lead the band as a drum major in 1929-30. The class was small and well dressed, as I have the class picture in my possession. I thought I'd look up the school to see how it has changed. I was right. It's not very good any more. What a shame!

I am a former student from this school. I will say that definitely it is not the best but also it is not the worst in L.A. I went to UCLA right after high school and I am not pursuing my masters degree at USC. I can say that I had great teachers and not so great ones. Sadly the "not so great" ones were in the "regular" classes. Like other schools in this area unless you are "gifted" and in honors or AP classes your education wont be the best it can be. I myself used to be an ESL student and ESL students get even the shorter end of the stick. Even if I had the best education possible from this school thanks to honors and AP classes I was still not as prepared as I should have for higher education. There are definitely teachers that should not be teaching and should perhaps explore a different profession. However, there are also teachers who are great and will really make a difference. The school can provide a great education if you are in the more advanced classes. I think if teachers expected more and had some hope in their students it would really make a different.

There are others schools much more competitive than this one. They show more determination and enthusiasm when it comes to teaching, extra curricular activities and overall discipline. Hopefully they will improve on this some time soon.

This school is not good at all, maybe you will get one good teacher, but many of them do not know how to teach. there the teachers who just make you do work from the book. I came from a different school ( Colton High School ) and that school was way better.

I am proud to say that I am part of the staff of HPHS. It is one of the best experineces i've had in my life. The students are wonderful and many of the teachers are excellent. HPHS is not different from other schools; it has its problems, but what school doesn't. The only downfall of the school is the administration. They are not supportive of the faculty and staff.

I don t think Huntington Park Highschool is such a good school. It does have good extraculicular activities that can help a student such as the HSA and the police academy but it also has ver bad teachers. Also the saftey it s not that good because many of the officers in the school are not in a good physical shape and is very hard for them to catch someone that has caused something bad to the school.

I am currently attending huntington park high school.I think this school is one of the best schools that is always thought of as a bad school because of where it is located at. It has many clubs and fun activities us students could do after school like sports and hsa. Im a cheerleader for all sports and are school. I have to admit has the best teams for example are football team won eastern league champs. All I have to say is we have a lot of really dedicated students and teachers.Many parents are not involved because they simply choose not to be. Are principal is great and even though hes new hes doing a good job and so is all of the faculty. I love hphs and cant wait to graduate a spartan! go spartans! were number 1!

I taught at HPHS last summer and witnessed some of the best students I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. This school gets a bad reputation for being in a tough part of town but the students and faculty could not be sweeter. It is truly a diamond in the rough.

Im a student of Huntington Park High School and i feel as this school is a very great school. I dont know about other schools but this school has academies that help students in many things. For example there is Human Services Academy and the academy helps out students who would like to have a career in Human Services. For Clubs and Sports I think we have the best well because our football team is great and many other sports have championships. Swim, Football, Softball, Volleyball, etc. AS for clubs we have many clubs to select from. Most of our clubs are community service clubs. But there is very interesting clubs that mostly get teens attention. I strongly believe Huntington Park is a great school! GO SPARTANS!

I am a student and I do believe that this school tries very hard to achieve something higher for the students, but some of the students don't really show too much interest. I also believe that this is a major problem with us teenagers. I enjoy attending to Huntington Park High School, and I believe that it's a good school for me. The sports are very interesting, and I also believe that this school has many sports and clubs to join. A problem with this is that many students are not or do not get informed of all the activities that happen in the school, I believe that a solution to this would be more publicizing or more student, teachers and parents need to be involved.

This is the first semester for my son. And I have had two conferences because I feel that some of his teachers are not as involved. I don't know the procedure of other high schools, but this one if the teachers has any complaint they fill out a referral and someone else will call. The problem here is that there is no comunication between the parent and the teacher. I'm very concerned that some of the teacher here are not taking seriously their professions. Unfortunately the kids are the ones who will suffer.
