Hoffman Estates High school has a wide variety of classes and extracurriculars to participate in, so there is something for everyone. Students are open to choose what classes they want to take as long as the required graduation credits are being met. I will say, however, that over the years they have been getting stricter with where students can go and when. Students are not allowed to leave class until after the first twenty minutes of the block, and the media center now requires that you have not only an ID, but a teacher approved pass, which I believe is a hassle.

Hoffman Estates Highschool is the perfect school for anyone who is interested in diversity of students, engaged staff and faculty, and a place to call a second home. Staff and faculty treat every student with respect and make them feel welcomed. The school provides so many resources for underrepresented students who are struggling at home. There have been many updated renovations to the school now as well, providing an even larger library and more resources for students. They do a lot to help with college preparation as well.
What personally stood out to me about Hoffman Estates High School is that it contains a vast amount of diversity. Another thing that I appreciate about Hoffman Estates High School is that it is a warm and welcoming environment for all difference groups and backgrounds. At Hoffman Estates High School, no group of students is left out and every student has equal opportunity no matter their background. On the contrary, an unfavorable aspect that Hoffman Estates High School could improve, speaking from a personal experience, is that some teachers could show bias towards other students sometimes on whether they are studious or not. Another flaw Hoffman Estates High School could work on is the fact that on athletic teams, not all players get to play due to their skill level. Some players also do not get a chance to participate at least once all season in a game or match. I feel that all athletes should be given the chance to participate at least once during a season in an event.
