It’s a small school, yes, but the opportunities within the school are endless! I am able to think of a project I want to accomplish and the school will be by my side the entire time. The teachers are great and the connections they make with students are ones you’ll remember for a lifetime. I love everything within the school besides the look of it. The outside of the school may be raggedy, but they say don’t judge a book by its cover, so definitely see what places are all about not just their appearance.

I loved HSC not just because it was a small school and easy to get around but because of the community we had surrounding us. No matter what was going on we had teachers, students and faculty always beside us and I never felt alone. High School was great because of them!
The staff and students are truly the best thing about HSC. While lacking in traditional appeals like sports teams or numerous AP classes, HSC has the small-school appeal of an inclusive environment surrounded by people who truly care and support all students.
