My experience at HHS has been nothing short of great! The classes that are offered are excellent and will definitely prepare you for college. The staff is outstanding and does a great job making HHS one of the top schools in our state. HHS is a great school and I am so proud to call myself a Hartselle Tiger. The athletic programs at HHS are also outstanding. We have won state championships in football, baseball, softball and golf over the past several years. Coaches will push you to be the best you can be all while making sure you maintain good grades in the classroom too. There are a lot of clubs that Hartselle High offers to students as well to keep them involved in community activities. I feel like I will walk away from high school a better individual and more prepared than I ever thought I could be thanks to Hartselle High school.

The AP teachers are amazing from my experiences. There are endless clubs that students are encouraged to participate in. Even if one doesn't interest you, it is recommended to find a teacher to help you start your own! Hartselle always has a sport that goes to state. The best part about Hartselles athletic program is all the support the students bring the athletes. You can bet there will be a student section at almost all events. My favorite memory from high school was having homecoming week. From the class skit, to battle of the classes, to building floats, to powderpuff football, and designing tshirts, homecoming week is full of school spirit and activities! It is a competition between classes to see who wins. It's a great way to bond with your classmates and a demonstration of teamwork. Several teachers sacrificed time on the weekends to hold study sessions, offered private lessons, and after class help in order to
ensure student success.
Hartselle High School prepares its students to further their education in some form or fashion. From dual-enrollment to AP classes, Hartselle offers more opportunities than any of the surrounding schools in the county. The teachers at Hartselle push students to always do their best work, and always begin with the end in mind when it comes to college. The faculty and staff at Hartselle are always trying new ways to prepare every student's education that walks through the front doors of the high school. Parents of Hartselle students always push them to do their best at challenging work so they can succeed in college and beyond. Academically, Hartselle is an amazing school. The community is very close-knit, so students and their peers are always presented with a lifetime of memories.
