The principal, Dorothy Bond, has called for expulsion or suspension of students who identify with the LGBT community. She does not advocate the separation of state and religion and persecutes her own students.
This school is under one of the best leadership team possible in Haywood county lead county lead by the most experienced, most driven, and most dedicated, passionate principal, Dorothy Bond who is doing a remarkable job in trying to turn a lost school into the righ direction while umfortanety working with mostly unmotivated, uncooperative, immoral, non-caring teachers and students who are at the disadvantage of being taught by these inconsiderate teachers in their classrooms. One again, excellent leadership, but unfair, cold, disrespectful teachers that lack a genuine focus who sit behind their desks and could care less if kids are getting an adequate education. As mentioned by a parent,agreed,one person isn't responsible for the clean-up of others ignorances overnight. I advise all those who like to point the finger to point the finger at yourself- to educate yourself to why things are the way they are. Have respect for those who deal with unintelligent, irrational parents, disresectful teachers, and your outrageous children on a daily basis. 95% of the others in the community do not come close to being qualified to handle what you see as an easy task-let's see how far you get.
First of this school is system(Haywood county) is horrible, they treat the schools like prisons, especially junior high, sunny hill, and the high school, the students are just disrespectful, the teachers there just dont care if you pass or faill, especially in the high school, the school has a lot of potential of being a great school, but with Dorthy Bond as principle, not alot is going to get done
This school needs help financially. It has good teachers and a great principal, but many "at risk" children.
I am a new student who just transferred to Haywood High School. I understand the issues of funding and whatnot, but I still believe the school needs a lot of work. Technology-wise as well as student sociability wise. A couple of clubs might help mix the population a bit.
My child graduated from HHS and I feel that she received an excellent education. She attends a highly-selective college (with the help of scholarhip money), and says that if it wasn't for teachers like Mr. Norvelle, Keel and Carr, she would not have been able to handle the rigorous cirriculum at this school. (she has a 3.9 GPA). I had two sons who attended schools in Memphis, and HHS exceeds those schools in organization, teacher involvement and student expectations. HHS may not have AP classes, but their distinguished scholars program deserves an A+. As for other programs at HHS, if the students want to be respected, they need to be respectful and at least make an effort. I
I believe this school could use alot of work. Some of the teachers are great teachers because they interact with the students while others just don't care.
I think that Hawyood County High school is a wonderful school except for a lacking amount of discipline.
In my personal opinion Haywood High is a school that mainly just lacks the correct leadership. The teachers are ok the only thing is that, they're the type that will teach you if you want to learn if you don't then they won't waste their time. The lockers are in poor condition. In my opinion, the main thing this school needs is a great new leader that can provide what is right.
Physically,, the main building of our school is in bad condition. Some of the teachers are excellent while others could show a little more interest in the students performances. We also could use more extra-curricular activities.
