Higley Unified School District Reviews

HUSD and Higley high school (HHS) are great places, with a clean,expansive campus, but it has some issues with it. To start off, the counseling department is not very proactive in the success of students, often being unavailable and unaccommodating to their needs. Though, the EVIT students are often neglected, having constant scheduling conflicts. The teachers in this district however, are extremely exceptional, preparing well crafted material in the classroom, setting students up for success in real-world applications.

The Higley Unified School District is not a terrible district but it is definitely not the best. The elementary and middle schools are very good and show that they care about their students but the high schools in the district are two schools that I would not recommend to any one. At Williams Field High School the bigger school of the two, does not care about the students at all it seems like the students run the school and if you aren't in a sport you are nobody there. At Higey High School the administration is way too strict they will try and get the students in to trouble for anything they can and the administration is not respectable at all they do not dress professional and do not show the respect to students that they expect the students to show them.
I have been in this district from the beginning and have received an amazing education. There has been a few bumps in the road, however the schools, teachers, and administration have really been there for the students. In the future I hope to see the schools grow with more classes, technology, and college preparation. I am proud to be apart of the Higley Unified School District!
