A parent and teacher
There is room for improvement in the core areas of study like reading, writing, and math....I get some of these students after they leave Horn and they cannot write complete sentences. Teachers and administrators need to invest in extensive professional development and stop wasting time policing untucked uniform shirts.....and peach fuzz on someone's chin. Teachers and parents should be held accountable for the lack of competence that is entering college classes today. When a student is allowed to leave high school and he/she can't read or write, it is the entire districts fault.....
As a former student. I believe the staff was very helpful, especially my counselor Mrs.Pritchard, she really and truly was the best . she motivated me to do my best and on graduation day I knew she was proud of me because I was struggling bad before then. And I also want to thank Mrs.Sagraves, she was also the greatest math teacher ever. She always believed in her students and I disliked the ones that tried to run over her.But thank yall so much !
This school is a fine school. Test scores are above state averages and are at the top of the entire district. This school gets a bad reputation because of the hearsay among local parents that have never taken a step inside the school. You should walk the halls during instruction periods and see that it is a great learning environment for the students. The teachers want the students to succeed and push them to do so. Fine Arts and Athletics are very competitive and successful. I have found the administration to be extremely helpful and they only want what is best for students. It's time to end this school's bad rap based on it's earlier years-time to move on.
The school is improving everyday. The teachers (except for a few) really care a great deal about the students. The principal does not return phone calls to parents, but he is a nice guy who is trying. Some teachers need to go, but all in all I would give it a 9. Academics?-excellent.
The principal is really trying to bring this school to a higher standard. He is hard to reach at times. Right now if my child was not in ap and honors classes, I would be somewhat displeased with the academics. Some of the guidance counselors are excellent like Ms. Stuekenjuerken. I think the school is going up. The principal needs to continue weeding out the poor teachers that don't care about the students.
