Ive been a student for 3 years and i have come to find out that if you dont play sports or have a decent last name your basicaly a nobody. You can try all you want to be accepted but you wont be. I even got in athletics and pre ap classes but to no avial i was still treated different. Mist of the teachers treat the last name students way better than the regulars. For instance if you ask a tracher to go to the bathroom she will say no but if a higher class kid asks she says yes right in front of me. And also the food has took a dramatic decline over the last years, if you have the money for the snack bar every day then do it but in the lunch line be prepared for the worst of the worst. And im not unpopular or an outcast im just bieng completely honest about this school. If ur a guy youd better play football or be an outcast and if your A girl hang woth all the stuck up girls or you wont be accepted. And most of the coaches are your important teachers like math history and science so if your not cool with them good luck

We chose HHS instead of the local private school for their excellence in academics, offering of dual credit classes, the variety of clubs and extracurricular, and the sports program which is amazing. we do not have a well known family name or a hometown background and my kids have absolutely flourished in this environment. The new school is large, open, and inviting. The kids feel challenged in all their classes. The sense of community and pride is evident in all that they do. This was hands down the best education decision i could have ever made for my kids.

This high school has some major issues to deal with. They are getting new academic classrooms and have a new auto shop and ag facilities which will all look outstanding. But this new facade will be the pleasant face to what goes on inside. The school has some very vocally dissatisfied teachers who have been taking their issues outside the school into the community. These same teachers are spending their valuable instructional time discussing their grievances with the students. My child seems to come home with more school gossip learned in the classroom than actual academics. My advice, find another public school to attend or send your children to the private school in town.

As a former student of this school, I can honestly say that this school needs A LOT work. It was once a wonderful school with wonderful people working in it. Then, it took a turn for the worst about 10 or so years ago. They got rid of every GOOD program they had (i.e. PAL). You can be the smartest, most beautiful/handsome, coolest, nicest person on Earth, but if you and/or your family are not originally from this little village, you will never be truly accepted at this school. Advancements in education levels, athletics and pretty much everything else is solely based on what your last name is. Go back years and years and you will always see that the star ball player, valedictorian, most beautiful/handsome, etc. is always directly related to either the coach, one or more teachers at the school, or whose family has a pretty significant name in the area. If you're from out of town, you're better off living out in the country and attending another school nearby. Better yet, send your kids to Sacred Heart School. It's great. :)

Having moved here from a great district in central Texas and assuming that a small country school can't possibly compete against what we had, I've found that my kids will be better coached, better instructed and better loved here than in our former district or anywhere else. The facilities are in need of an update though. Only one school can match what we left in our previous town.

In my experience no matter how talented or academically inclined a student, no matter how hard the student works to achieve their goal, or how hard a parent complains, if you don't have the correct Surname your efforts are worthless. Our administrators are not fair to our students. When confronted with the issues and guidelines, suddenly a concerned parent becomes a problem parent.

Hallettsville High School has just been reclassified to a 2A school, which means that its students can compete on a more level playing field, both academically and athletically.

I realize that our school is a small 3A school district. I don't believe they offer enough variety of classes - foreign language shouldn't only be spanish - I think the english classes are outdated. Classes shouldnt be catered to the super smart kids - all should be treated equally
