Hayden High School was probably just like any other high school. You have your clicks, bad teachers, favorite teachers, good days and bad days. My favorite thing about Hayden High School is that the Counselors— especially Mrs. Parker— is so helpful and friendly. One thing i would love to see change is the atmosphere, because you can definitely tell that even the teachers and administrators favor the popular group. I think everyone should have a fair chance at high school to make themselves a name. Overall, Hayden is not an awful school and of course it is not the best. There is always room for improvement!

Hayden High School has been wonderful. They have always made me feel like family, and I always had the support and help I needed. The teachers are wonderful, and i always have had people around to make me feel cared for! I would recommend the school to anyone. I also learned that I can push myself to do whatever I want. They made sure I was prepared for college, and they always made sure our ACT scores are good. They took the time to prepare me for my senior year in applying for school. They made sure we had everything we needed for every school. They gave us many opportunities to help us carry out our dreams.
I absolutely love my high school. You can tell that the teachers and staff genuinely care about the students. Everybody knows everybody at school. We have our fair share of drama, but it typically dies down within a few days. However, cliques are extremely common at school. People are definitely aware of which group they "belong" in, and if they are not aware, others put them in their place real fast. Overall, it's an amazing school though.
