Hastings highschool is truly a unique learning experience inside the classroom and out. The teachers are amazing and you will take them for granted until it is time to leave. The actual students attending the school are mostly all very privileged and very wealthy so if you don't fit that mold you will be an outsider, but it is honestly worth it for the education you will receive. It's a great community if you are musically inclined or enjoy theatre, any of the arts really. There are very strong programs. Honestly you will find your place no matter what you like. Athletics are more or less a joke besides soccer, even the teams who do well won't get attention because they are not soccer. But the boys variety soccer team did win states so that's cool! Anyways overall you will have an unforgettable experience here, I would recommend it.

My experience at Hastings High School has overall been good. The students are supportive of one another for the most part, and there are some very dedicated and helpful teachers who will stay late to help students study. However, there is a big lack in diversity in the school and the few cultural activities we do have often die out when the person in charge of them graduates due to a lack of interest from other students.
Hastings High School is a place full of artistic, smart, and liberal thinkers. Although the town is not very diverse and is quite small (with only 500 students attending HHS), my experience there has been a rich one. The school has provided me with the opportunity to pursue my interests in music, theatre and journalism as well as my passions for French and English literature. The relationships I have established there—both with teachers and the students around me—have brought me immense fulfillment.
