Half Hollow Hills High School East Reviews

When I first started at high school East I was nervous because the school is very big and I thought the transition would be very different from elementary school to middle school which it was. Many people were there to help me when I went to do my schedule before school started which gave me a better sense of where I was going and allowed me to feel less nervous because people I’m the school are there to help me. Although the beginning of freshman year was scary, I got use to the way things were and really liked it. I participated in multiple sports throughout these years such as field hockey, winter track and softball! I met people who I am able to call my best friends. By being on a sports team I was able to learn better leadership skills and having dedication! I also joined the cross campus chamboir my senior year and I wish I did sooner because it is amazing. I am able to balance sports, music and academics all at the same time with the help of teachers and my family.

An opinion based on HHH High School East's exterior would be nothing but laudable. The general atmosphere is incredibly competitive, and while most students are financially stable and have access to educational assistance, a certain population, most commonly the low-income minority population, do not have the same advantages. Boundary lines allow students (including myself) in de facto segregated communities such as Wheatley Heights and Deer Park to attend HHH HSE.
Many teachers, while passionate about their jobs, criticize the current administration and the policies in place. Students do not have the liberty to further express interest in areas, as teachers pander to a large indiscriminate audience.
This school is not one that stereotypically upholds its sports programs over programs in the fine arts, in the sense that both areas equally lack funding. Deficit spending is the unspoken stain on this district, and excessive purchases only deprive students of support and aid.
Half Hollow Hills High School East is a very good school with highly renowned academics! The difficulty level of your classes depends on which classes you decide to take, but it was manegable. The teachers and most of the staff are very helpful and help to create a safer school environment. They try to provide the most for their students. I was happy to have spent my 4 years of high school going there, and some of the teachers really try to help prepare you for the many years to come after high school.
