Hinckley Big Rock Community Unit School District No. 429 Reviews

Hinckley is a great school to go to if you like to have a lot of one-on-one time with teachers as well as have a more personalized education. It's a very small school with about 40-60 kids in each grade. This can be good but I mostly found it's cons. Since it is such a small school, there are not many varieties of classes you are able to take. Because of this, the opportunities to learn about new things are very slim. However, the classes they do offer are very well taught, especially in the English department. The staff is, for the most part, good. There are some bad apples which are just problems with maturity in handling situations and professionalism. The sports are very limited as they only have "core" sports such as basketball, soccer, baseball, etc. (not football). It's hard to get a good high school experience here as there is not much to do and the school is simply too small to do anything big/fun for the students and community.

The principle is running the school like he’s a tyrant.The issues that they micromanage is unfathomable.I received punishment because my car wouldn’t start one morning I walked in a minute late they didn’t have any sympathy they said that if I was late another time I’d be in serious trouble. This happens to only me but many other students have it’s to the point where students feel like they should just skip the first half of the day because they don’t wanna get in trouble.
HBR is a great school, the teachers there have put in so much effort and because of that I am able to grow in so many ways but especially my academics. I would change the amount of electives if I could along with the clubs, I wish there was more so I could do more!
