The district itself is very well placed, for success. The teachers are mostly nice and easygoing, and their rules aren't forceful. The principle and others genuienly work hard to make the school great, including diversity meet ups and discussing one-on-one with students how he can do better. They listen to our opinions, and give good feedback. The only downside, are the students. The students are mean, cruel, disrespectful towards the teachers when they are given perfect opportunity to set things straight.
Over all, I like Huntsville City District, &
I attend Huntsville High School.
I like how Huntsville City Schools is providing students more classes based on a professional pathway they may want to go on. However, if the student does not actively participate in the professional environment of their choice they will not know if their choice is the right one. I hope to see, in the future, that Huntsville City Schools encourages their students to apply for internships and externships, and provide them the connections they need to participate in these programs.
