Hurricane High School4

My children have been in several different High schools in different states and districts, Ive found Hurricane to be decent although I disagree with the policies concerning transfer credits. I am satisfied with the overall curriculum. My children love the class scheduling.
Most of the time this school is agood school. The teachers are helpful and support students. The BAND is awsome for this school and have won many state championships. The athletic programs are always high ranked. Most of the administration are helpful when issues arise. I do feel, however, once akid gets in trouble, they are rarely forgiven by the higher ups. All kids/young adults do stupid things. Maybe giving ALC (alternative learning center- in house detention) is better than suspension for some students
This is one of the better schools in the greater Charleston-Huntington metro area academically speaking. Although some of the general classes leave something to be desired, if you enroll in the AP and advanced classes you will be as prepared as anyone else for college, regardless of whether you want to go to a state school or the ivy leagues. Its not unusual for a handful of students every year to go on to prestigous colleges and, being one of those, I found myself very well prepared, particularly since I challenged myself with the harder classes at Hurricane.
My daughter attended this school last year and she loved it. She actually wanted to go to school and it was fun and exciting for her. Not only were the teachers great, but the students accepted her right away. I never had to worry about her, I felt like the school had a very safe atmosphere, which it did. The teachers are excellent and they not only teach the students educational things, but they also teach them how to be an adult. They treat the students like adults and give them respect. This is a phenomenal school!
