The school's IB and Honor Program is great. The teachers actually care about the students, and the program is a great opportunity for kids to excel. Unfortunately, the overall environment that these kids have to learn in is absolutely horrid. There are way too many kids that don't care about their school work, their school, their teachers, or themselves for that matter. Fights are a regular at HLHS. If you are in the Honor's Program at this school, great. If not, good luck.

HLHS is an awesome school. My daughter is a 9th grader this 2010/11 school year. She entered HLHS at the last minute and didn't know anyone there. The first day she met several friends, the teachers were warm and friendly and the principals are very encouraging. My daughter is in the marching band and has become fast friends with the group of kids that are working hard to improve the #s on the band and the outlook that the community has about the school and the kids that attend HLHS. With the news media taking every chance they get to talk about the bad things happening at the local schools it is hard to know what is going on at the high schools that is good. Let me tell you, there is alot of good things going on at HLHS. We are looking forward to 3 more great years.

Hunters Lane has undergone a complete change in the past 2 years. The school is in good standing, discipline is under control, Principal Kesser brought back pep rallies, dances, and a single lunch for all students.

Everybody saying that HLHS is a bad school are not trying at all. Im a student and i love it here. If someone trys in the school, then its a wonderful place. but the people who are just there to see friends, the ones that cause all the bad rep, are the students who do nothing but talk act up and sleep.

Hunters Lane needs a lot of improvements. The rules have become too strict which makes the students feel more stressed. Students learn less because they are always being sent to the office because of a dress code violation. Also,teenagers tend to need more sleep than adults and for some reason their bodies are set to wanting to stay up late and arranging the time to go to school earlier is not going to help these students. Students cannot learn as nearly as well when they have not had enough sleep! The new principal(Kessler) at Hunters Lane seems like she will help fix a lot of these problems. My main concern is the new time. It is simply too early and students cannot learn as well.

I am an IB student at Hunters Lane. I am a Junior and have been a dedicated student ever since my freshman year. I participate in various activities in school because I am one of those students that are headed for college and would like to major in education in college and would like to see our school put back up where it was my freshman year. Notice that no parents are really involved in the school functions but they all have something negative to say about our school. Hunters Lane is a good school regardless of prior thoughts.

I dont know if anyone has visited hunters lane recently, but it has steadly rolled down hill since the good old days. After 2004 and the legendary last day, much has changed. The admin are no better. And extracurricular? Forget about anything good. Forensics, gone, didn't even know it existed. Peprallys? dont even happen anymore. That bon-fire thingy? 'cancled'.

As a member of the Class of 2004, I would have to say that Hunters Lane is a good school. It has levels of learning for practically everyone, from special education to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme, a JROTC program, a Culinary Arts program, and many different organizations to pique anyone's interest, including Forensics and FCA. The major problem is the fighting that happens -- and that is done by a small number of people who don't have the sense to solve their problems in a decent and orderly manner. That is the job of the parents, not the school. Hunters Lane will always be my alma mater, and I will always cherish the memories I made at Hunters Lane. The Madrigals are the best choir in the state! Go Warriors!

i'm a freshman at HLHS and i can say that this school is not as bad as people say.Yes,there are many fights but the officers are always there helping.The education is great!We have IB programs,culinary arts,JROTC,etc. I think HLHS is made to be worse than what it really is.

I graduated from HLHS in 2004 and I loved it. Yes, there were many fights, but that was just ignorant kids being ignorant.Fighting is going to happen at any school because there are so many sterotypes today. I feel that the principles ( Mr. Bell, Dr. Moore, Mrs. Grandberry, Mr. Johnson) as well as Officer Keeler and Officer Hanahan had things very under control. My senior year I was an office aide for Dr. Moore and I saw first hand what went on that students didn't know about and that is all it needs to be... between the proper authorities. I now work for Dr. Moore at a Metro school...so great things can be accomplished at HLHS.

When my child first went to HLHS it was nice and she loved it. Now it has changed i as a parent am at times scared of what might happen there. There are way to many kids and not enough teachers or adults. The childern do not resect the teacher and it takes away from the childern who are there to learn. I am glad this is my childs last year there, my son will not attend HLHS unless changes are made. There are some teacher who are helpfull thet just need more of them.

As a parent of a second year student at Hunters Lane I find the school has some good qualities and some areas which need immediate attention! First the good qualities; The IB program, extra curricular activities and over-all teacher performance are good. I find that certain principals have a tendency to avoid controversy rather than resolve the problem: i.e. a face to face meeting with parent/teachers who have a problem. Deflection of controversy does not end it. The other problems I see with the school is mass punishment for the actions of a few,(identify those responsible for problems and deal with them accordingly), departmental conflicts caused by an apparent good ole boy system(a leadership problem). The biggest problem with the school is apathy on the part of the parents. If it is'nt a sports activity you see very few parents at events. Parents support your kids,they're worth the effort!

Hunters Lane is a well educated school. The school makes sure we we are not in danger,no students or staffs are ever harmed.Most teachers dont like to listn to how we feel,all students need and loved to be heard and reconized.If teachers let us speak about school and other issues the students wouldn`t talk back or be disrepectful.HLHS is filled with opportunity,great scholar programs,after school programs,and electives.the school gives high hopes and dreams.Most schools only let you earn 24 credits;at huntres lane you can earn up to 28 credits.Even though HLHS have problems we still acomplish our goals to getting students a great education.

Although I am not a parent, I have many things to say about the quality of this school. I am a student at this school and I believe that this school is in need of great improvement. For one thing, if the principals would step up and put more effort into stopping fights before they happen, the people who aretrying to do the right thing won't get hurt. Maybe if the other teachers would stop being lazy and listen to what students had to say about certain situations, then certain students wouldn't have to rebel against teachers and get in trouble. Coming from a student's point of view, I can see why certain students, not including myself, fight and get into much trouble. If the faculty and staff would take this into account, then it wouldn't be so hectic. -Student of the school.

I graduated from Hunters Lane and its an awesome school when I attended. ALL teachers were very nice and they cared alot about our learning but its sad it has gone bad because of the zoning.

- submitted by a student
August 05, 2005
I think the biggest problem with Hunters Lane is the zoning. kids from other schools are rezoned here, and that makes this school over crowded, and the other schools have half the students. I think our elected officials should rethink the zone. They can afford to send their kids to private schools, but some people rely on public education. I don't believe that the teachers don't care, I believe they have to many kids to look out for ,and therefore some kids feel they are not being taught the things they should be. It is not all the schools fault we need to lay some blame on people who think they know what is right for everybody.

As a parent I cannot begin to say how horrible of a school this is. limited to 150 words. all I can say is that this school is more concerened with it's rating than it is with it's students. If you want your kids to get a quality education in a safe environment then this is not the place for you...RUN

I have been involved with HLHS for many years, through my friends kids and now my own son is graduating. I have had so many great experiences there with the students and staff. I moved to an area where I knew that my son would be able to attend HLHS just before they changed the busing. There was no other school in Nashville that he wanted to go to. The neighborhoods around the school are good areas to live in. The only change I would love to see is a better way to let or remidnd parents about the PTSO meeting.

I am new to Hunter's Lane this year and I think that people should take into consideration that every school has their problems. No school is perfect and in every school has drugs, alcohol, and fights. The teachers there are great with the exception of a couple.The people in this school are great and fun and very respectful.If you are thinking about sending your child here I think you should give it a try. I went into HLHS with an attitude that I was not going to like it but, come to find out I do not want to leave HLHS.

Hunters lane has it's good points but most of them are bad. Instead of suspending the students that are really doing bad they are going after the students that have done nothing...personally I think its not a good school for children to go to. Most of the teachers don't care if you learn the material or not as long as they get paid their happy.

The school when my daughter went was great she loved all her teachers,and most importantly got on well with them.But,as of this school year(2004-2005)I have to say the school has needs to bring itself up.Most of my daughters teachers have left or are leaving,which is really a shame considering those are and were some of the best up there.

I am a senior of the class of 2005, and I fell that Hunters Lane has given me an excellant education and well prepared me for my future. If your child is willing to work and not to be a discipline problem, he/she will do very well at Hunters Lane. Although there have been a few dangerous incidents, I have never been afraid to attend class.

I am a student at hunters lane. in my freshman yr I was in the IB program. They push you harder than other students. The teacher's are only there for the money...they don't care if you learn what your supposed to. They say that is your problem not theirs. That school is not disiplined like it is supposed to be. This is not a good school for students and I think it should be out of the school systems.

Although Hunters Lane has had incidents involving violence, it does not lower the type of education that is given. Hunters Lane takes education very seriously, considering the type of educational programs offered, such as the IB Program. Hunters Lane is also an environment where students are exposed to diversity and taught to appreciate differences in others. As a rising senior, I hate to hear that Hunters Lane is a bad school because it isn't. I take a lot of proud in attending Hunters Lane. However, one major problem is the number of students there. I really think that the administration that decided to change the zoning should have considered it a little more carefully.

It is apparent to me that this school is also failing to teach its students how to write. I can't imagine sophmores, juniors and seniors writing so badly. It's heartbreaking to think that they will be expecting to get decent paying jobs someday.

We moved back to the Goodlettsville area because we had heard that Hunters Lane had did a complete turn-around and was rated a good school. This is extremely untrue. I am still living in the zoned area but will pay an out-of-county fee to send my other daughter who will be a Junior this next school year to a different school. Please...as a warning and concern...do not send you child to this school.

I am a junoir at Hunters Lane High School, and really enjoy it. Although Hunters Lane has a major over-crowding problem, it has a great learning program. No one can say that a school is perfect, because there isn't one, but on the budget and resources that we have Hunters Lane strives to the best it can be.

Hunters Lane High School is not the school it is made out to be. I am a graduating senior whose been here since my sophmore year and in the three years I have been I feel that the teachers are only here for a pay check because I learned for my Freshmen year at Maplewood than I ever learned at the three years I've been at Hunters Lane. There is also a lot more fights and violence that goes on in the school than what is portreyed.
