Hoosac Valley Middle & High School Reviews

Overall the school was decent, I felt that I was safe all the time and I was learning at a level that I was quite comfortable with (honors, AP). Yet, I had myself feeling as though the fun was sucked out of the school. We were very limited on what we could do, and if we weren’t in sports we basically did not matter. The staff tried but it was in the wrong ways, and never seemed to care what the kids wanted. Especially as a senior I feel as though my year was controller with every step I took by the principal and vice principal. The teachers are very personal and are very passionate about their students and work. I would not have graduated with honors without them.

The school is terrible!! The environment is so negative and drugs abuse is a real issue here. The new change in administraton has not changed a thing. Instead of fixing the issues they have made them worst. The school was bias towards its athletes already, the administration is just making it worst. Students who are athletes can get away with everything! The only thing that makes this a 2 star is the outstanding band and musical program. Other then that DO NOT ATTEND HOOSAC!!!
Hoosac Valley was a very close-knit community; being someone who transferred during eighth grade, I was welcomed by other students fairly well. The teachers at Hoosac are the school's greatest appeal, as most of them are so dedicated to teaching. My high school experience would have been drastically different if not for my teachers, they all get to know students on a personal level and understand how to reach students in a way that feels genuine.
