The community at Haughton High School is great. All the teachers want you to be successful, so they will help you out. A lot of teachers will stay late after school with students to help them out. This has made a huge difference with me too. I think the only thing that needs to be changed at the school is our dress code. I would just like to be comfortable when going to school, because our uniforms are not comfy. Besides that I love my school. GO BUCS!

HHS helped prepare me for entering college by promoting AP courses and making the ACT a part of student life. I gained work experience as a student worker, both at the front office and an assistant. Most of the teachers are dedicated and passionate about the subjects they teach and develop personal relationships with their students. Haughton is paying more attention to STEM with more classes and clubs.

There is little cultural diversity at Haughton aside from a handful of foreign exchange students visiting the campus every semester. I feel there is too much focus parish-wide on sports, and Haughton is no different, as games and other events dictate the schedule of most students at the school.
Haughton High school has been very interesting to experience due to the vigorous AP courses, the close-knit group of students/faculty/staff, and the extracurricular activities/events that take place. Haughton is a small town where everybody knows everybody and you never meet a stranger. Knowing many people and having nice teachers enhances the school experience bad makes it memorable.
