Hinton Community School District Reviews

It's a small community, so it's like we are a family. We support others in a variety of different ways. Whether it's sports, music, theatre, helping others through a difficult time, or helping to improve the community.
It's a great small town community high school. The class sizes are small and you get to know everyone in the school. Because of this the teaching is much more personal and anyone can get help whenever they need it. The teachers are nice and it is an all around wonderful community to grow up in. Parents and students are heavily involved in setting up and going to sports events, kids fun night, homecoming, prom and anything else you can think of. It has some downsides such as the food program and a lack of classes and clubs due to the small size (specifically in technology related areas). However the faculty there wants you to succeed and will make you feel welcome.
This school has given me many experiences and memories that will stay with me and help shape the person I will be after high school. It has taught me great study habits and I know these will help me with my studies in college for nursing. The teachers and representatives of the school are so supportive and involved in our lives and help us to be our best selves. It is a small school so most of my class has been with me since preschool, they are like family and we all support one another in clubs and activities.
I started Hinton in 10th grade. So, I was nervous about starting a new school in the middle of high school, but everyone was very kind and welcoming. The students were friendly and the teachers were patient. If I could change one thing though it would be how the students treat some of the teachers. It's not everyone, but there are some students that think that they can just walk all over teachers. In reality, they should be grateful that we have them to help teach us and help us grow.
I love our school district and the people in it. The teachers and academic program is great. The only thing I would change would be a wider class selection as in different languages to learn excluding Spanish.
The teachers want to get to know you, all the staff is incredibly friendly, the school is now One to One with MacBook Airs, meaning every student gets a laptop.
Great people and a great place to get ready for the rest of your life. Small town feel Big city action.
Hinton is an amazing school. All the teachers are willing to work with you and treat you like family. It is a very warm and welcoming school, where you will always feel like you belong. I made so many great connections there that will be life long ones.
The mathematics department of Hinton is awesome. Hinton also has a fairly good science program. Hinton mostly focuses on sports, and because of this the academic clubs do not get much, if any, funding. I you are at all interested in joining any extracurriculars besides sports, I would not recommend Hinton.
