Huntsville City Schools Reviews

This school system strives to excel students, however, they fail to provide easy access to assistance for those who may fall behind. The curriculum seems very subjective, meaning that if one learns differently, there are no other tactics to use if it is out of alignment with the common core guidelines. The quality of the resources given is excellent and abundant, but it would be a better experience if the students knew how to utilize them correctly. This is a good school system, but only for students who are able to understand fast-paced and monotone teaching methods.

Huntsville City Schools is a wonderful school district. You learn a lot almost everyday, and you become very prepared for college or later careers. The teachers are very skilled and are great at preparing us for careers. Huntsville City Schools in overall one of the best school districts in Alabama!
Huntsville City Schools has gone through many changes in the past four years. They have the Freshmen Academy, and it is very helpful starting your high school career. Sophomore year was tougher because of a certain lawsuit that allowed others into the district that were diverse. It allowed my character to grow, and I am a better person because of it. Junior and Senior year were the best years as teachers and administration are helpful and intuitive. Overall, Huntsville City Schools has allowed me to be a better version of myself and see all sides of life in one school.
