Hedgesville High School was a fun and amazing experience! The school is a very old school as architecture and time being around and is shown through some of the teachers as many have been in for a good many years and have seen many developments throughout the schools life and are always enthusiastic about everyday there. New teachers even get caught up in everything real well alongside them as they always provide great views and positivity! Academics are diverse and a great experience as well, even when you have to take gigantic 500 page tests. Sports are also a awesome experience as tons of passion is pushed through every coach and every athlete to compete and be the best of their ability. The experience couldn't have been better!

I am finally in my senior year of high school and it feels great! Starting out my freshman year at Hedgesville, I had the access to meeting new people and starting over. I had come from a private school with a 8th grade class of 30 people. Thanks too Hedgesville I have had been given access to meeting new people and maintain friendships with those people for all four years of my high school career. On top of making friends, I had the access to great class and teachers. I would say that all of my teachers were top of the line and gave me great access to getting a good education. I feel as if I have learned a lot in my high school career and am prepared to take my next steps in life.
Hedgesville is probably the best in the Berkeley County district when it comes to academics. There's many outstanding teachers who outweigh the few subpar seeds that may be there. The theatre department is absolutely phenomenal, and the director truly cares about his students and the work they do. The administration could be better, but they do genuinely try their best to serve the needs of the students. I just wish it wasn't all on the "popular" students that help the school look good.
