One of the better RPS schools. My daughter loves this school. There is a no-tolerance for bad behavior rule here.

I am happy that there will be a new principal. The outgoing principal cared only about himself and test scores. Let's hope the new principal actually aids the teachers and keeps the kids focused. There are some fantastic teachers at this school who have been consistently thwarted in doing their jobs by bad administration. It is hoped that this will improve.

My son is a freshman at this school and at the beginning of the year the did not have a schedule, his bookbag and leather jacket was stolen out of his locker and of course the security camera saw nothing; and every other day there is a fight in the building. The principal promise the ninth grade students that if they passed their SOLS he would let them take a trip to six flags, but then he decided to cancel the trip without notifying the students. Besides his awesome guidance couselor Dr. Ward, and some of his teachers, I would not recommend this school.

I personally graduated from this school with an Advanced Studies Diploma. The teachers are just fine. They take extra initiative if the child will let them. I do know that a lot of the students do come from poorer neighborhoods. I did, and there where no problems in the school. But one main issue is that Richmond City schools need more funding. The state needs to take some of the money from Henrico and Chesterfield and use it for the poorer kids, not just the 'rich kids'.

School is what you make it. You really have to know your child and what's right for him/her. Huguenot was fine for my son, however, he has a strong personality and does not succumb to peer pressure. No matter where your child goes to school, as a parent, it's your responsibility to know what is going on -- know what's available; know where to find help in case you need it; make sure homework is getting done; make sure your child knows what is expected of him/her; attend parent/teacher conferences; get to know the teachers; get to know the guidance counselors; involve your child and yourself in extracurricular activities that you can participate in together and individually; and don't expect the school to do all of the work.

This school can be way better if it just had more involvment from teaches and parents. I wish it was better. I feel like I'm missing out on so much of my education. Not very diverse.
