High point is GARBAGE. The staff isn't nice they dedicate there work on how you look to school rather than your education. They aren't even aware of students at the school stairs,gym, and back of school selling drugs. Students smoking in class and the teachers don't notice. Then they wonder why we are not academically successful. I had a teacher who lost hope on us she was done with the class days would pass and all we would do was sit in silence as she preached us about how she tried? Most teacher never have a one on one with students here to be honest 99.99% of teachers criticize the students more than helping them. Teacher gossiping about there day for the whole period and we don't learn anything. You would be better off learning on YouTube than this school that needs to learn to respect and educate students the same way their teacher taught them. They need to stop giving paper work and get up from their seat and teach for once! This school is old never ate lunch here nor gone to the restrooms in the school and the nurse isn't nice she's lazy and won't help students who are injured. Zero star school.
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.
I am a student in high point and theres a fight everyday and this school is not safe at all so go to school that is safer but they some of the teachers are very good
The school is so fun its like a fight at the school everyday.The teachers dont care about anything.
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!!!!!!!
high point? they should call it low low point. This school is so dirty they really do need better janitors. They really need better coaches they havent even won a football game(one by forfit).
This school is horrible it has too many problems and nothing is done about it! Get better janitors, please, and cooks and teachers and principal and special ed teachers. Thank you.
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.
