Halls High School is an okay public institution. It is old, somewhat dingy, underfunded, and really struggles in the diversity department. To counteract this, the teachers, for the most part, are wonderful and caring. Because of this, I feel that I was adequately prepared to enter college, and I graduated with almost a full semester worth of college credits. Take dual enrollment classes if available!

Halls High School has been a home to me for the last four years. The marching band program helped develop me into a young woman and gave me the necessary skills to progress in life, with humility, pride, and discipline. Even though we lack resources, we get the job done. Behind us, a helpful and ready staff that pushed us to graduation and beyond. How could a school with the smallest band room in Knox county win the Southern State Championships in 2015? How could such a place get high scores on tests? Our passion, pride, and drive. Halls has it.
Halls High School is a very different school. Halls is a mixing pot of ethnicity, religion, and political views. We have some of the best staff and faculty in the entire county, along with some of the best spirit. Halls is notorious for our student sections, our pride, and our helpful community. Personally, there is no better place to attend as High School student. There's always teachers and peers willing to help those in need, and correct any mistakes made within our school walls. In addition to this, our extracurricular activities are outstanding, and draw students from neighboring schools. Halls is the best school system in Knox County.
