I am a former teacher. Teacher turnover is extremely high. Academic and behavior standards are low. A large percentage of the local school age children have been transferred by their parents to neighboring school districts.

I am a former teacher. I would not recommend this school in any way. It has a bad culture with the students and low academics. The staff is working to improve the school, but issues with administration leave the staff pursuing many different directions and having to start over with new philosophies all the time. I hope that the school improves, but I definitely would not send my children to HHS.

This school has grown over the past few years. I am a current senior at Hearne High and am accepted into Mays Business School at Texas A&M University. My senior year has been rigorous due to the vast amount of work such as dual credit classes, calculus, physics and spanish 3. Many people think of Hearne High as a very low school in academics. However, many students in my class are not aware of the importance in education, and those are the ones that do not put effort in their studies. In conclusion, Hearne High might not be Franklin High or Mumford High, but with proud I say it is a great school!

As an alumni of Hearne High School over the years I have noticed how the academic programs have grown. Heightening their standards trying to meet every childs needs and just recently, about 2-3 years ago, they built a new facility for the students. The availability of different extracurricular activities are broadening their horizons. But I must admit that the Music/Band program has taken off in the past years. The enrollment of sports in Hearne High was always great, for they offer every sport that is able to be played at a High School. The basketball team and track teams go to state each year with a wonderful faculty to push them on. As for parental involvement, there is not anything that goes on at the school that the students parents don't know about.There is not 1 activity that you don't see at least 5 parents or larger. Its a Great School.
