If your child is a bully and likes to threaten kids, send them to Hixson High School, The administration will not do anything about it. My daughter was disrespected, humiliated, bullied, and threatened..with no action but to "talk to" the two responsible. Every year you sign a code of conduct which clearly states, threatening is a major offense, with suspension and possible expulsion..the two are at school everyday, no punishment. However you record a fight, 5 days suspension or walk with someone smoking (you are not the one smoking) you get a day of ISS. Administration at this school is a joke! On another note, the band director picks favorites, and is only worried about "his show".

My daughter had a wonderful year at Hixson High. She loved band. The band director is excellent. Her peer group was also terrific.

The information on this sight, including many of the reviews are several years old and out of date. We have grown to 850 students, no longer require students to wear uniforms, and have changed the daily class schedule to offer numerous enrichment courses. This means Hixson students can graduate with as many as 36 credits; far more than required by the State of Tennessee Department of Education.

Tardiness and attendance is a great problem for this school . That causing low test scores, disruption of the student that get there on time and somehow it slips through without know one knowing ? I know of one disable student that came up missing was found down the road. In general I think the school would do a lot better cracking down on parents that are always late getting there children to school on time and sticking with the policy on how many days a child allowed to miss school. Creaks in this school not only hurts the child that always late or absent , but teaches them once they left school it okay to be late or not show up for work :therefore causing a higher poverty rate.

I think that teenage pregnancy can be a problem at any school! I have one daughter who will be starting her 3rd year at a private university,, the thought of kids is far from her mined, she knows getting pregnant would take her back ten steps from getting education. My son who has been blessed with a full ride to a private university,, who just graduated from Hixson High is determan to get an education before even thinking of staring a family. So what I'm saying is it the schools fault for any poor decision a child makes or does lessons and morals start at home.

Hixson High provides excellent opportunities for learning for all HHS Students..... from tutoring programs, college seminars to opportunities for parental involvement.... HHS has it all! We have a freshman this year and have been impressed with the amount of communication from all teachers as well as being welcomed to come into the school. Love the opportunity to form educational partnerships that will help my child succeed! AWESOME SCHOOL

Poor. The principal Ms. Couch is bias and unfair to the students. She does not support her assistance pricipal's decisions and often makes comments to students about other students. Not a professional.

Mrs. Couch is a strongh leader who now is supported by three new assistant principals. Consistency of leadership should help Hixson High befome stronger as the year goes by. There are many good programs, activities, students, along with parental support. Each student must be responsible for getting the best from their school. I believe that if a parent has a concern, Mrs. Couch or one of the assistants will hear their concerns and try to assist.

Hixson High is welcoming three new assistant principals and I am excited to see the problem kids deterred to other schools! Yea! Hixson is a great school. As all schools some instructors care more about students' grades than others as well as students. The students need to be proactive in striving for their best future and I believe the teachers and administrators play a large part in this. I am on the PTA committee and I am excited to see the changes taking place and we have much more in store to get more parents and students involved in their learning process! Hixson Rocks!
