Welcome to North Hardin Christian School, a place of lecture, boredom, and ignorance. No where will you find these three attributes other than here.
Let's start with the boredom aspect. Students sit in a classroom doing nothing (I thought school was about learning). The classes mainly involve lectures that lead to nowhere. They are about either how attitude or disrespect will make you a failure in life. A student's personal opinion is considered disrespectful. Instead, the only opinion that matters is that of the teacher's.
As for ignorance, very little teaching is done; but instead, complaining about a student's attention to detail. Also, more lectures about how college is the most important thing in life; and if you do not go to college, you are a wasted mind.
I am very fed up with the school's system of discipline and order. Sometimes I question the administration's ability to lead the student body. Between in-school suspensions for hugging or even sometimes touching the opposite sex, to standing up for what you personally believe in, favorites are chosen based on how a teacher views the student.
This happens often, but worst than that, the school will often attempt to control a student's personal life outside of school. Student's have also been stalked by teachers in the school on social media, then questioned about their moral standard.
The majority of teachers do not even carry teaching credentials from accredited universities. Pensacola Christian College, for example, is located in Pensacola, Florida, and is not an accredited university. It is no surprise that this is where North Hardin Christian School recommends all their students to go.
Dr. Clayton Hunt, the disciplinary for the middle and high school students, lives by the philosophy that facial hair of any kind is “unprofessional.” He has stated this on many occasions. Not to mention, hair should be cut short to, in his words, a “professional standard.”
Cellular devices, laptops, and tablets are completely out of the question. If one were to have any such thing on their person it would result in its removal for five days and three demerits to go onto their record.
In summary, North Hardin Christian School lacks the fundamentals of education.
