Huntland is a great school with lots of one on one for the kids who need it. My children have grown by leaps and bounds since they have been enrolled at the school. They care about each student and the teachers are accessible. It is a great school.

I am a student at Huntland School... And I have to say I honestly hate it there. Basically, if you haven't been going to Huntland for your whole life, you're invisible. I've suffered from being bullied everyday there, so much that my mom is pulling me out and home schooling me from on. My friend had to get home schooled because when she asked one of our teachers if they could be more clear and that she didn't understand it, she got a pink slip (for those of you who don't know what that is, it's like a detention slip). A lot of the teachers are very unjust, and never give the children a chance. And, basically, all of the "fun" and "cool" stuff goes to the seniors. That's all Bishop cares about.. My mother has went up to the school many times to complain about some of the bullying, and they always said they would try to take care of it. But, of course, they never did. They didn't even try. I would write more but this limit seems to postpone me from that.. But, I'm just going to inform you this; if your child gets bullied, don't go to the school about it. They won't even shoo away a fly about it...

I first thought that the negative reviews of Huntland Middle school was unjustified until my child experienced the same thing ... If one is a Huntland native, then the child is accepted no matter what. If the child is not, then he/she is not accepted no matter what. My child has been bullied, threatened, and completely rejected by the bulk of the cheerleaders and football players. I understand that kids will be kids, but when they single out one child all because she is not a Huntland native, then something is seriously wrong. The culture at Huntland Middle School is not supportive to all students (only their favorites), and is actually promoting bullying behavior by providing a sanctuary where such behavior is tolerated. My child doesn't deserve this.

I decided to send my child to Huntland because of the caring atmosphere and the wonderful teachers. It is very tight-knit, and it is a little tough to start out not knowing everyone, but my kid still loves it. Good manners are taught and expected. Huntland is a wonderful place.

I like going to Huntland School. We have fun things like ice cream day in the cafeteria, and I get to go to school concerts and pep sessions I get a good education too. It is much more mellow than the school I used to go to. I am learning more too.

Huntland School has a very knowledgeable and professional staff. My son's teachers are caring and effective. I feel that he is in good hands each day, and that he is receiving an excellent education. The children are well mannered because it is expected of them. Disruptions are not tolerated. Students who come to school to make trouble and aggravate others are dealt with. I credit Ken Bishop and the assistant principals with keeping the focus on learning, as it should be.

Huntland is a small school and if you did not grow up in the community, you are considered an outsider. My kids tried out for several sports and if you were not in the in-crowd then your kid did not make the team. It's sad to think that it takes being in the in-crowd to make the team and not your abilities, then something is very wroung in Huntland.

I haven't lived in Huntland 'my whole life' and neither has my child.As far as some of the people in town that really didn't matter. But when it comes to the Huntland School System and administrators it leaves much to be desired. I have never felt like more of an outsider than I have speaking with the administration. How can you make someone feel unwelcome in the school were their child goes? Do you have something to hide?

Huntland School is so much more than just a school. I have been a part of this community my whole life and have been involved with this school,as my parents were, since attending kindergarden and graduation from high school here. We have caring teachers and administrators who treat students with respect as they would treat their own children. This school is a vital part of the community and when events are going on at school- ie.- games,band concerts, pagents,festivals,etc - the whole community participates. The overwhelming Christian atmosphere is a huge positive . This school is like a little private community school that you too can be a part of . Come join us . Thank God for Huntland School.

I think Huntland is a great school. There are those who would have things to say to otherwise. As such is the case with one such comment posted on Novevmber 18, 2008. The person that wrote those remarks diplays a lack of education themself.ow`can they be disappointed in a school and run it down when they obviously posess poor grammar skills as evidenced in that post. 'Those who oppose acadamia should first use it to improve their own grammatical skills before blatantly displying such ignorance as was posted on that day.

I'm a senior, and have been attending this school since Kindergarten. Not many people can say they have been going to the same school that long. The atmosphere at school is so incredibly unique. The diversity in age of the students, I think, makes Huntland a great place to learn because the younger kids look up to the older ones. Everyone learns from everyone at Huntland. Our Spanish class had the oppotunity once to interact with the first graders, and teach them some simple Spanish words. If you open our yearbook, you will see pictures of highschool students helping the elementary, or hugging the younger children. Mr. Bishop is a great principal, and has a right to be considered 'God'. He has been a Hornet for many years, is very accomplished, and has given us reason to be dignified. *BAM*

I love, love, love Huntland. The teachers and staff are wonderful. I feel safe going to school. We have great school spirit and pride. I very proud to say we say the pledge of alligence and have a moment of silence every day. I would never want to leave. It feels like home, and everyone feels like family. The ONLY bad thing I would have to say is there aren't college prep classes. Huntland may not be for everyone, but if you want a good, no great school to send your child to Huntlnad would be my recomindation. GO HORNETS!!!

Huntland High School's administration does extremely well with the resources they have. Bishop is probably one of the best principals we've had in years. I have been going here since Kindergarten and I really have to look hard to find anything to complain about.

Huntland school is not great, yeah it may be a small school and the teachers and staff may know you by name but so what! it doesn't matter if they don't teach or think that a problem child should be worth their time. Being a parent of children that goes to huntland I am very dissapointed in the school and principal Biship(who thinks he is God) what a joke! This is sad to say I brought up ?'s about one of his students and he let me know that it was all the students fault, he didn't want to even give the student a chance. From my point of view the school is unsatisfactory in the teaching and ethics that they trive to achieve and as soon as I can I will move my children out of that horrible environment.

As a former student, parent, and current coach/teacher huntland school is the best school that you could send your children to. All students are treated the same and all have the chance to achieve if they want to.

Huntland is an awesome school. There is always some con's about any school... but i went there for 13 years (K-12) and I wouldn't change a thing. You are accepted for who you are no matter and people love and care about YOU! It is a homey atmosphere where you don't have to worry about many drugs, shootings, gangs, etc. and you can learn w/o feeling threatened. The only negative impact that it may have had on me was that I wasn't used to the BIG world after coming from such SMALL school... But great memories and I wouldn't change that for nothing!!!! GO HORNETS!!!!

Huntland School is a great school to go to. The teaching is on par with other school in the district and the students have excelled at the Gateway tests required by the state. The small tight-knit environment is great. At Huntland, you're not just a number, but a name. The teachers and staff seem to care about you. I went to Huntland and also FCHS and I would pick Huntland any day. The Interact club is always first in the state at the state convention which says alot for such a small school. The locals support the Hornets in Football, Baseball, Softball, Basketball, and even Soccer. It is a great school that I will send my children to.

My children all suffered from an education at this school once they went off to college. The elementary program is commendable, but outside of that send your child to another school or do it at home.

I have 3 children that goes to Huntland and they live all the way on the other side of the county. I would not send my kids to any other school but to Huntland. They have all been accepted by the teachers and other peers. They are happy there and so am I. Keep up the good work Huntland.

I do not enjoy Huntland School very much at all. I have two children that attend there currently, but I am pulling my older one out to be homeschooled. My oldest is in the third grade and is very smart for his age, the teachers are not willing to do extra work with him to kepp his brain challenged. I do agree with the other parents as far as being accepted in Huntland school. To be popular you must either come from a family that donates money to the school or have a family member work at the school. I say homeschooling is the best option in this school district.

This school has its pro's and its very obvious con's. As a former student and athlete at Huntland Highschool I will say there is a very sharp and sometimes negative impact on new students, especially those who come along later in their academic career. Much like a family, the longer and earlier you can become a member of Huntland the better. It has a descent if somewhat subpar teaching staff and class layout but all the essentials are there.

I'm as happy as a could be at Huntland, there's not many kids that go to Huntland which means everyone knows everyone, and im a freshman, and i have to say that our school is the most united school i have ever been to, with a low amount of students that means the teachers have enought time to talk to each student and we have a small band,but they can play, football, go hornets, and all of our clubs interact, BETA,FFCLA,FFA,we all united,my mother nor father has complained about my school,they like Huntland as much as i do!

I am a former student of this school and I have to say there is NO way I would send my kids to there! If you weren't 'popular' you had to get special permission to enroll in some of the 'tougher' but necessary college-bound classes. Football reigns there and when you leave the school you really aren't prepared for the real world. If you live in the area, homeschool!
