Huntsville City Schools Reviews
My experience with Huntsville city school was great! They are always willing to help students grow and do well in their studies. All the schools under Huntsville city schools are doing very well. I went to Huntsville high school and I must say it is a great school indeed! The environment is always clean. Their counselors and registrars are amazing. The teachers love seeing their students prepared and ready to learn. Their instructors pay attention to all students. They also make sure we are prepared for college and wants to see us make it in life.
Huntsville City Schools, and more specifically the high schools, offers a wide range of courses that not only educate the students on the material, but also push them in their pursuit of a higher education. For example, PLTW and computer science classes introduce students into the world of engineering with great success. However, there have been a lot of changes in the past couple of years with scheduling and the structure of 'a day in school.' I would like to see the school system settle on one decision and let it run for a couple of years before drastically changing every thing again.
As an only 3 year attendee at Huntsville City School's, my time there has been better than expected. The change from a private to public school was very different, but different in good ways. There were so many more people to meet, it wasn't the same faces every day in all my classes- which was refreshing. There were some unkind people, but they wouldn't talk to you if they didn't want to, so no harm was done. The teachers are kind, and fair, but mostly they want what's best for the students. Even if we didn’t like the sound of, "No toleration of cell phone in class," in the long run, that's our administration looking out for our best interest. Coming into Huntsville City School so late into my education may have given me a different outlook on big picture, but I wouldn’t have made any different decisions in transferring and I'm so grateful I did, because I wouldn’t have gotten to face some of the challenges I have in a private school like I did at Huntsville City Schools.
