You will not find a better school in the upstate. Not only do the teachers care about their children as a whole, but the administrators take a vested interest in them as well. It's about more than just a test at HPA. The close knit community is conducive to families and I love that children can start in kindergarten and stay there until they graduate. Their sports program is on the up and up as well. Their basketball team isn't expected to win state this year and they had threee wrestlers compete in the state competition last year. They also offer soccer, cheerleading, volleyball, softball, and baseball. If you're looking for a school to send your children to that is different from those he or she has been to, you definitely need to set up a tour of HPA. We love it!

High Point is a very sufficient school, but there are some physical problems that could have been taken care of. A couple of stalls in every bathroom either do not have locks, doors, toilet seats and are always out of toilet paper. The school could also loosen up their grip on the students. Complaints from the students have recently been about how strict the school is, how athletes get away with a lot of concerning matters/grades, and how seniors do not have many privileges like most high schools. Many teachers have been fired from the school, therefore students views of the school have been saturated with horrible thoughts of how the school will be when they attend. Although, the school is a great learning environment for students who are focused on self-improvement.
