HHS is a great school! It is probably one of the best in the southeast! No other public high school can compare!

Hartsville High is a good school that can improve in many ways. Teachers need to drive student's willingness to learn.

I'm not sure why this school is rated so low...but it's a fantastic school! One of the highest testing scores, one of the highest graduation rates, and one of the only school to offer an IB Program! The teachers, counselors, and Principal are awesome and actually care about the students...Definitely needs to be rated much, much higher!!

HHS has been improving over past several years...I believe it is due to the principal they have now. Dr. Burry is trying make it one of the best schools in the state. IB program will be one of the things that will make it so.

HHS has become a better high school in past few years. Adding a Baccaulaureate program that will give students opportunities and challenges that they won't get at many high schools.
