I loved going to school at Hinckley Big Rock High School. It is a very tight knit community and everyone is very supportive of the sports, academics, and extra-curricular activities that go on with the school. I was a straight A student, took advantage of small class sizes in order to get close to my teachers and build relationships with them, I played sports all year long, I was involved in many clubs, and I had great friends. I loved my HBRHS High School experience and now that I am in college, I can definitely say that it has prepared me greatly for the future.

The extracurricular activities are available but are not very popular. Not very many people participate and they are not well funded. Types of activities that are more well known are FFA,FEA, and spanish club. The administration does not seem to really participate in the organizations. Every once in awhile there will be a fun field trip. Sports at our school are popular though! Several students participate in basketball, cheerleading, soccer, volleyball, and softball.
I like how teachers are always willing to meet with you before or after school to talk clear up any questions you may have, they work around your schedule (between sports and clubs, etc). The downside is my English 4 class, there are 3 teachers in the class of about 35 or more and they do not really teach. I do not think that what they have taught is preparing me for college.
