Hardin Valley Academy Reviews
Hardin Valley is a great school that offers so many opportunities that other high schools don't! The teachers are so amazing, and the whole staff is so helpful in getting through the tough times that come with being in high school.
Hardin Valley is unlike any other school I know. It is quirky and jovial. There is a different type of personality at Hardin Valley. Though one may see only the rough competitive nature at sporting events or the 21st century cheerleaders on the side lines, there is a quieter, calmer side within the back hallways and back rooms of Hardin Valley where book club may pour over a new novel, or green actors sharpen their trade, or newspaper jots down the newest headline. Hardin Valley is complete and wholistic; but trust me, without its own flaws. But even the best have a few bumps and scraps, right?
Hardin Valley Academy is nothing short of a unique high school. What I love about this school is the amount of detail paid to helping students finding their interests and gearing them towards academic study related to their interests. Students can pick through 4 different academies, with each representing: business/law, health sciences, STEM, or liberal arts. This helped get students and teachers with like minds in the same classroom. Many of the teachers there are young UT grads that have great flexible personalities and really look out for each student. The school goes out of their way to bring about school pride, programs, clubs, and activities that students can participate in. In my experience, I was never a popular or even liked school, but definitely made many friends here and felt like I belonged. I was told upon entering that if I played my cards right, I would have a wonderful experience. Keeping this in mind, I made sure I worked hard, and I left with more than I ever hoped.
