I will not down Hedelberg High School, but it do need some improvements. I can not talk about the school's officials because the students need to meet them half way. The students need to WANT To Learn, as well as the teachers need to want to give knowledge. It all starts with respect. This school was great when I attended and still can be with a little effort.

The safety factor at HHS is well below average compared to other school districts across the State of Mississippi.

I had three children attend HHS. Only one to go! Although HHS is now a level III school (improving every year-academically) the overall picture is not pretty. HHS has 100% black students. The school board refuses to take steps to enforce Desegregation Court Order. It could be a wonderful school with a little ethnic diversity.

Heidelber High School is a great school. I am a 2004 graduate of the the school and I am glad that I did. You won't find students as kind and as smart as the ones at Heidelberg. Heidelberg has an overall great atmosphere. -Tye

I am a graduate of Heidelberg High School, and I know from past experiences as well as present that the East Jasper School District is one of the best school districts in the state of MS. Since this district is predominately African_American, many other school districts look down on EJ and feel that the staff as well as the students are not up to par with other districts. I have witnessed that there are teachers working their asses off day and night teaching and grading papers as well as trying to further their education by taking classes at night and GRADUATING from universities with Masters and Ph.D's. I say to all who are interested in schools and this area or to others that feel that the EJ school district is inferior to others, sit back and watch the tremendous educational era of learning that is in the hearts of Oilers.

I personally believe that HHS is a great school. I am a 1997 graduate of HHS, and I know from experience that the students can achieve and accomplish any goal set before them. They are very smart, versatile and talented as well. This type of ability only comes from a smart individual. However, I do understand that no one learns on the same level. It takes a little more help with some than others. This doesn't mean give up though. We as parents should be eager to work with the teachers and students to make sure that our kids or on the level they should be, and higher. I will never accept that a child can not learn. Everyone can learn. It just takes motivation, willpower, and a concerned community.

HHS is a school that could be an outstanding school. The high school needs a 'customer' oriented counsellor not one where you never know what moode she is in; and the schools needs more than 1 counsellor; also the teachers and principals must be more organized; and parents were made aware of their child's progress on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. It's great to get a progress report half way through the grading period, but being a level 1 school......more interaction with parents is needed. I will always support HHS, but I will also be honest.

Heidelberg High School is an average school; however there is room for improvement. If more parents would get involved and find out what their children are actually doing, Heidelberg High would be a better school.
