During this month Ive sent my child three times to request a night school application. They always tells him that his counselor or AP is not in the office. Today I called to make sure he was telling me the truth and the lady who answered the phone told me that they were not there which means that the students are looking for help but people in the office are not willing to help.

The teachers and counselors at Hastings always encourage me to do my best. I believe I can go to college because of Hastings high school!

If you think this is a great school, than you must not want a future for your child. The principal is just as bad as the teachers. She doesn't care nor does she try to resolve any problem that a parent has with her staff. If you're going through the halls during a passing period kids are either on their phones, listening to music, or kissing, None of the staffs try's to stop them nor ever says anything. Oh and don't try to set a conference with the teachers or one of the AP because NONE of them will show up. This is not a great school and I hope that sooner or later something for the best changes here.

Please do not send your kid to this school if you care about your child's quality of education and morality. Definitely one of the worst schools in the country. Just visit and see.

I am currently a student at this school and it's not that great. The school isnt very good, the teaching at this school is behind other districts. People that say this school is great are people who have never been at other schools. There are some good teachers, but they still make it too easy on the kids to pass. Every wednesday is and early dissmissal day for no reason. it is not a good school.

This was an excellent school for me and the learning experience was great. I graduated from Hastings and have no major problem except for the counselors they are not equipped to handle the kids problems and at times do not pay much attention to your child academics. My degree plan was messed up because of my counselor did not catch the problem before it was too late

The high school does not meet the need of the population. They are set in their teaching ways and refuse to change. These children are much different than those they started teaching some twenty years ago.

The academic programs are excellent for our children and extracurricular activities are superb. One thing I wish we as parents could do get more involved with is our children classes and letting their teachers know that we are willing to do whatever it takes to help our district to get from Pre-K to Senior High academic strength all subjects.

Hastings is one of the best schools that attended and because of the school giving me a chance to prove what I could accomplish in my life. I now work for the Fulton County D.A. Office in Atlnata,Ga. Hasting made me believe in myself. The teachers there are great! More school need teachers that love there job not just there paychecks.

This school is very good school. It has great teachers, and the education is great depending on the childs attitude. I'm in two advanced classes and I'm doing great. Their is after school programs, and the electives are fun. I'm in the Marines Rotc, and she stays after school for PFT(physical fitness team).

The rigorous courses offered at Hastings are current and relevent to what is being asked for the twenty-first century graduate. The students (my children) have been able to compete with the best in the nation and I attribute their academic successes to these academic programs which have provided the foundation needed to be successful in their undergraduate and graduate courses. The schools have so many different cultures and languages spoken by the hundreds of students from different countries, I am glad that my children have had an opportunity to experience a true diverse educational environment. These experiences will help them understand how to get along in a real multi-cultral society.

Academics programs are good for honor students, they are able to learn in a fast paste and high volume of work. Tennis is a good extracurricular activity for your kids because they have a large voulme of tennis courts, only down side is that your kids have to walk a good distance to reach the courts.

This is bar-none one of the best schools in the state. The teachers go through rigorous staff development to meet the very dynamic and diffucult student population. The administrators and teachers have the students' best interests at heart, but the school is just so large it is easy for a student to get lost in the crowd if there are not proactive. The main problem teachers face is a lack of parental involvement and support. With parental support the sky is the limit, but not until then.

I was very disappointed when it came to the fact that when it came time for me to pick my classes I seemed to recieved the classes at the bottom of my list. Then I became pregnant and it seemed kind of hard to get some of my work from some of my teachers. I understand that it was my fault that I got pregnant but the teachers didn't bother to care to get me my work until two days before I came back to school, and then expected me to have the work completed over the weekend that I got back which happened to be the same weekend of prom. I did not finish the work and still passed.

This is an excellent school as well as the district. Having a graduated son there has made me a proud parent. Learning that TAAS scores were good was expected. When I go to pick up my daughter from the office, I am treated well and noticing there is always an assistant principle 'running around', shows they are doing their job. The school's courtyard is maintained clean like the rest of the school.

this school simply does not meet the minimum standards a parent would want for her child. Avoid this school at all costs. The administration is not worthwile, the students are simply horrendous, and the teachers are very biast
