HSHS has a great academic and sports program. Teachers, Coaches and Staff all have great care and concern for the students learning ability. My sister went to a Chicago Public High School for her first 3 years and transferred to HSHS in her Senior Year. During her 3 years in CPS she performed poorly. Once she transferred to HSHS, there was a complete improvement. She went from being a 'C'/'D' student to being on the B Honor Roll. In just 9 months of school. Her self esteem was also improved by the interaction and acceptance of the Teachers, Students and Staff at HSHS. Keep up the Great work!!!
HSHS is good place, the staff are friendly and many oppunities to join, however i rate as 3 because of the extremely strict rules. There are tons of rules to follow and the classwork can be very demanding, waking up so early in morning to catch 8 am class and ending at 3 pm, it is very exhausting. However, in general, i had pretty good experience with my classes and friends.
A school that emphasizes diversity and collaboration. Strong faculty that provide full educational resources across curricula, from literature to science to music and the arts. Importantly, the tenure of the faculty reflects the school's investment in attracting great teachers and the teachers' and community's investment in the students. Having graduated 10 years ago, I recently ran into my English Lit teacher and tennis coach in the airport and fell into a great conversation immediately. The school's extracurriculars are strong, providing a wide array of sports, government, academic and music/performing arts opportunities across genders. Additionally, the programs emphasize involvement in many activities, giving rise to a very well-rounded, close-knit class. HSHS has made important capital investments to continue improving the environment and facilities of the school, another demonstration of the commitment to continuing to build a great school.
HInsdale South is impressive. It is not too big as some of the other mammoth schools. It has a super friendly faculty and has great extracurricular activities. Overall I have a great feeling about the school and its academic curriculum. It's a great school for kids to grow in.
Hinsdale South is an excellent school for all types of ability levels, in academics, athletics, and extracurriculars. As a current freshman, I know that Hinsdale South truly does all it can to welcome new students to explore their options. There are over fifty clubs and many sports (which are both cut and not) that allow many people to participate. I am currently on the track and cross country teams, and am in six clubs. The opportunities are endless. Also, Hinsdale South offers many Honors courses, which are both challenging and exciting. However, there is a huge gap between honors and regular classes. At the beginning of the year, I was in all honors except for one, and realized that the classroom feel was MUCH different between classes, which led me to move up to honors. However, for the honors courses are wonderful, and I would definitely recommend them. Go Hornets!!!
Overall, this is a good school. It has a good band, art, and sport programs. It also has many extracurricular activities. It is topped of with a serious dramam program. It has a great amount of AP and Honors classes ranking it one of the best in Illinois. There is at least 2 fights every week. That brings down the school's overall image and it should be stopped.
