I loved my years at Hedgesville! I had so many class and extra curricular options as well as other great opportunities available to me that would prepare me for my future. I had some pretty amazing teachers, several that were willing to open up to their students, create close-knit relationships, challenge them for the students' bettering, and were always there for support. There's hardly anything I would complain about other than the availability of guidance counselors at my school. We have so many students and a small number of counselors. It's almost always impossible to speak to them that same day when there are so many others before you who are also waiting. I didn't realize how bad this was until my senior year when I am constantly needing guidance with college decisions, but struggle with reaching my guidance counselor.

Great high school experience! HHS has great student activities, has great resources for planning for college, and great staff and teachers. I have been involved in sports for my entire high school experience and that has been a wonderful experience as well.
Hedgesville High School really is a good school if you make it one. There are a fair amount of clubs and activities. You also have a lot of options when it comes to your courses! The teachers are kind and really, truly care about you and want you to succeed. I understand why someone may not like it though, you have to get involved to see the benefits.
