Hinton High School provided me with a great learning environment and has given me various opportunities allowing me to work to the best of my abilities as I have grown throughout my life. I recommend Hinton to anyone without a doubt. The staff have helped to prepare me for what my future life will be like, and have set me and my classmates on the path of success. I first came to Hinton in Kindergarten and now being a Junior in highschool, i'm glad my parents chose to send me here.

Everyone here wants to see you succeed, and they are willing to help you do that. There are several different types of activities, teams, and clubs here, and the school works to adjust schedules to allow you to do all of them. The only problem is that the school doesn't have a lot of money to work with, so some things may be a little outdated.
It is a great school to go to. You mean and learn so much about many different kids. You have smaller class sizes so you get more 1 on 1 with the teacher. It has great athletics and is just an all-around great school to go to.
