I graduated from high point in 2014 and this school really is not bad, it has a bad reputation but it really isn't what it seems. The teachers are willing to help you if you need if you just need to have motivation and know what you're going to school for with that being said many students there aren't in it for the education and probably just go cause the parents make them go but if you go to do well and with the mindset of wanting to graduate you will do well, I have had amazing teachers and counselors at High Point that did not hesitate to help when needed.

I will be graduating on May 30th. I have only been in high school for 3-years, i am an early graduating student and the oppurtubities in this school are endless it all depends on your self motivation and leadership. The school is improving quickly and i am confident that this school wont be the same after so many plans that are taking effect already.

This school isn't that bad you just need to know how to fight for what you want. I graduated from this school. went right to college an I already have graduated and became a veterinarian :) ! My parents have tought me well. And even though I didn't have the best grades in Hp I still always did what I could. And that's why I'm getting money today, for never giving up . Highpoint wasn't perfect but it wasn't the worst. Don't think this school is bad just because some parents never communicate with their kids to have them being good in school .

i wount recommend high point as a good school to go to.... because security is not all that strict on students and anytime there's a problem and security is needed it takes a long time for them to get there.. High point's facility is bad and the food they serve is not all that good too .. other schools are better compared to high point

High Point would not be a good school to think you would get a decent career in life. The staff along with the teachers actions are poor, they don't really care what the students do. The security isn't so tight so everyone walks around the halls. You can walk out & head somewhere as if you were leaving an unimportant place. Fights occur like it was a regular thing. Weekly, perhaps daily.

High Point High school use to be the best in PG County not to long ago. I'm an alumni of High Point, an my son attends there this year as a freshman. And this school has a lot to be desired. With the new principal maybe this school can turn around in the near future. it will take time, but i would not recommend this school to anyone. My son is on the football team and the players lack disipline. Winning a game is the least of the school worries. What should be on everyone's mind is why they only have 44 players when other schools have 50 to 65 kids. One is the grades of the students. I know that the school system changed there policy about sports programs, but the school in a whole lacks the commitment from the students. The students and parents need more involvement!!!!!!!

I am a student here, and I think that if you are in honors this is a great school for you, we are now fixing the school up. I am in the honors society. The Secuirity has gone up now, so in the near future this school will be better.

I'm a student at High Point, and I think it's a great school. I'm in the academic/honors portion of our school, and my teachers and peers are both supportive and helpful. Mr.Ryan is doing a great job of dealing with misconduct in our school, and I'd rather be at High Point than any other High School.

Teachers not certified for Special Education. Gangs in school not dealt with. Only cares about academic (Talented or Gifted) children. The comprehensive program, where most students are at, nothing done with them. Poor parent involvement.

My son is a graduate of 2002 and for his years at High Point, we had no complaints. They helped him in more ways than one. Now I have a 9th grader there and she loves it already. Besides I had several cousins that graduated from there years ago.
