If you are looking for community, Hall is a good place to find it. Because of the countless clubs, communities, and other various extracurricular activities, finding a group of quality friends and good interactions is easy, even for those who normally would have trouble. The bathrooms are absolutely disgusting and it's not uncommon for several things to be broken in them. If you happen to be transgender then the only gender neutral restrooms are far away from everything, so it's almost a given that you'll miss a lot more going to the bathroom than if you were cisgender. The classrooms are pretty nice and the technology is up to date and useful.

I had a great experience as a student at Hall High School. There were lots of varied clubs and activities so that everyone found something to be a part of. It was also relatively easy to form new clubs. Apart from clubs, we also had different classes in all areas. We were also offered a large number of AP classes and even college classes that we could receive credits for. The environment was very secure and I never felt unsafe during my years at Hall. The teachers were great at their job and the counselors were very helpful, specially during the college application process.
As much as my education from HHS has shaped the opportunities that I have been given for the better, as I currently attend a well-respected top college, many of my peers, especially those students of color did not have the same advantages and opportunities as me to take and excel in upper level classes.
