This "school" is a joke. I graduated in 2008 with a guy that could only read on a 4th grade level - I'm not kidding. I remember being partnered up with him in English Honors (he had NO business being in this class) and he didn't know how to spell words like "resolute" or "accomplished". I was stunned at the fact that I had to work so hard at keeping up my grades, when he was just carried along. He was a "star" at our school for his abilities for playing football. That is just a small example of how the staff and administrators do not care about the education system. I'm not being bitter, I'm just telling you how it really is. If you value the education of your child, do not make them go to this school. Oh, and that guy went on to get a full ride to the school of his choice. (of course to play for their football team)
HCHS has been a friend to me and all of my family. It is responsive to the local community and exceeds practically all of the expectations one would have for a private institution let alone a public school. It is not perfect. There are areas that need improvement but there has always been an air of dedication to excellence. Balance is the key to a well run school. HCHS is balanced as well or better than any other school with which I have been associated.
The HCHS is amazin, idk if i could ask 4 a better school. the teachers and staff r so helpful and friendly, and we r all workin on bein a family, thts sumthin tht rlly matters when u have a group as big as ours. i'm rlly proud of my school, and if any1 was lookin 4 a school, i would b 1 of the 1st 2 recommend them 2 the HCHS. GO TIGERS!!!
Hardin County High School is in the top 25 high schools in Tennessee. It is also ranked among the top 10% in the United States. These statistics were noted in Newsweek Magazine. The principal and assistant principals care deeply for the students. The teachers excel in their vocations. They love and care for your children.

This school is a joke when it comes to a student that is having problems in class learning. All that matters to this school is how well they can perform in sports.
This link from tn.gov shows the facts for Hardin County High School. http://www.greatschools.org/school/parentReviews.page?id=459&state=TN The facts are that 54%, or 595, of 9-12 grade students are economically disadvantaged. This group of students did not meet the AYP benchmark in English -a score that is worse than state as a whole. Last year Hardin County High School did not meet the state goal for graduation. It is now considered a 'target' school.
Academics are of excellent standards, graduation rate is high, and standardized testing scores are above average. Great school.
Very good school. Has worked very well with my children, I am pleased.
As a graduate of HCHS I myself would say this is an excellent school, although at times it seems to be operated on a 'who you know' bases. Academics are great, I my self attend a Division 1 school here in TN. Great extracurriculars and clubs. Parents, keep track and stay involved with your student at this scholl.
quality of academic programs is high. extracurricular activities is available to anyone who will work for it. parental involvement is very high.
