Hewitt is a relatively big school compared to others in the area, but that's what I love about it. Since it's big, you can find exactly where you fit in with who you want to fit in with -- there's a type of person there just for you! The education is rated as the second best high school education in the state; I take all AP classes and my teachers are belong phenomenal. They incorporate all learning types while still keeping you on track to pass your tests. The facilities are really nice -- the school was built only a few years ago -- and have everything from two gyms to a massive auditorium. I have genuinely enjoyed going to Hewitt Trussville High School for the past four years

I have throughly enoughed my time at Hewitt. I love how much our school cares about academics and sports. We have great school spirit. They are always encouraging you to challenege yourself in class. The school is nice and clean and safe! One of my favorite things is there stuff that is planned throughout the year to make it fun and enjoyable. Even tho we're a public school we still have the plegde and a moment of silence everyday. We also have prayer before the football games. They also have a weekly bible grouo meeting before school. I would say God is welcomed into our school with open arms.
They have a great staff that cares about their students. They also have wonderful arts programs for those that are not into sports. The school offers great programs. You can be prepared for college or to go and start your career. There are many programs that are offered for students. They have a firefighter program, culinary, and others. Advanced Placement classes are offered to help prepare students for college and to cover some of their college classes if they pass the final test. The sports programs and arts are top notch. They offer a wide variety of sports and arts.
