Supportive learning environment! Very academically challenging curriculum that has helped my children to be successful and ready for college.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
There are some less than phenomenal teachers in the math department but the majority of teachers are effective at teaching their students.


Amount of homework: Agree

I wouldn't say it's "just right" but there's enough to keep you busy and to prevent students from becoming lazy.

This is honestly a great school! The choral department is phenomenal, the teachers are great, and the staff knows what they are doing. Academically, this school offers a great balance between challenge and involvement.The only real complaint is that school starts relatively early, however it's not really enough to take a star. There are a lot of complaints that teachers are disrespectful, however if you do what you're told to do in class this shouldn't really be a problem.

This School was good 3 years ago, but has been going downhill. Teachers don't care, administration don't care about the students all they care about is getting their funding.

Academically, this school is far more progressive than most schools in the area. My child is in Honors classes and is challenged appropriately. Where this school falls way short is in respect. Students are treated as though they are in a juvenile detention facility. They are unable to use the bathroom during class no matter what the circumstance is. There is a monthly reason that girls NEED to use the bathroom and its just inhumane to make then go almost an entire school day. Teachers are rude and have no problem screaming and yelling at all students. There is no welcome program to help new students integrate with the existing student body. The teachers also expect new students to know exactly what is going on and have very little patience when they receive questions. This school does not embrace cultural differences in people and allows situations to occur that at other schools would be considered a hate crime issue. Very little diversity exists at Hickory Ridge HS.

Hickory Ridge is a great high school. We moved here in the middle of our last child's high school years, and have been very happy with the school. Teachers have a concern for their students, the school is academically strong, and the facility is great. Overall, we're very pleased our daughter is a HRHS Ragin' Bull!
