While the other teachers taught me how to get smart, how to study, how to pass tests, Mr. Sumerton taught me how to grow up. I entered his engineering class as a senior. He taught me to dress nicely, to carry myself with confidence, with poise, to help clean up while the other schools left. In the lab, we always worked in groups, argued with each-other, watched others fool around. He taught me how to lead, how to bring your group together and tell them we'll stay focused, we'll put in work and we'll succeed. There was a sub one day and the class used their hour to slack off and fool around. The next day, when no one could look at his face, he taught us a lesson that will stay. He told us what we do when we think no one is looking speaks the truth of our character. What a teacher - he taught me how to win.
I only spent my sophomore year here before demanding to be transferred out. Every single experience I had in or with this school has been a miserable one. The school is overcrowded, the building is filthy, and the students were so out of control that even the good teachers i had just gave up halfway through the first semester. Not to mention the administration is so convoluted, god help you if you ever find yourself needing to get a hold of anyone. If you or your child care at all about academics in high school, send them anywhere but Huron.
Example: Someone in my World History class stole a stack of graded essays off the student teacher's desk. They weren't even our class's papers, so I have no idea what the student was planning on doing with them.
I have had no good experiences at this school. The counsellors do not care about me at all (mine is never actually in the school), very few teachers actually know my name, and I have not been challenged academically once since I have attended Huron. I guess the only classes you actually learn anything in are AP. The student body as a whole is incredibly ignorant; one of the worst groups of kids I have ever been around. My advice: if you are considering Huron and you want to have a good high school experience, do not go here.
