I love the music and arts programs that the school provides. This school is well know for these reasons. The amount of clubs offered is wonderful and you can even create your own! The school is a wonderful environment. However, Hastings has some students who say some very racist or racially insensitive things. But, last year a club was made that promotes diversity and equity, and this year a diversity and equity coordinator was even hired! Hopefully, the appalling behavior will become less of a problem.

Hastings High School was a very accepting enviornment to everyone who attended. There was always a positive outlook on academics, diversity, gender equality, athletics, the music department, etc. I feel like I could be actively involved in a wide range of different activities and felt supported throughout all of them. I am always encouraged and pushed to do my best at everything I attempted at this school, and I have witnessed one somewhat physical fight throughout my four years at this school. I feel very safe and protected at this school as we have lots of police enforcment and strong authority. The authority here is strong yet not too overbearing. I am very blessed to have had my highschool education at this location.
Hastings High School was a very inclusive community with all the teachers striving for the success of the students. There are lots of courses to interest everyone, and there are great opportunities to take Advanced Placement courses or College In the Schools courses to get ahead on credits. There is also a club for everyone at HHS, and if there isn't, it's super easy to start one! The music department continues to be successful with multiple choirs, show choir, band, and orchestra. The athletics are pretty good, and we have great school spirit!
