HCCHS is an amazing school. They offer many different fields of study that prepare each student to be college and career ready. All of the teachers are involved in helping the students excel in their class. The teachers work together to ensure a safe learning environment. The counselors are always ready to listen and help the study with their schedules and mental & emotional needs! I´ve never gone to a better school. When I was going through my health issues with epilepsy, every teacher and counselor was there for me until I got my health under control!

Overall, my experience at HCCHS has been very good. Over my four years I've created life long relationships with students and teachers both, found great educational opportunities, have had numerous opportunities to be involved with my school and community, and have been well prepared to start college. HCCHS brings a lot of diversity as well, which has given an opportunity to experience what it will be like for my self as a teacher. The only thing I think could be better with this school is school spirit, coaching, and sanitary
I've been going to Hopkins County Central High School my whole college career. While here ive been invloved in multiple varsity sports, clubs, and after school activities. This school has great teachers who care about you and your success. If i could change one thing about this school along with any other it would be to taker kids who don't plan on going to college and send them to an alternate school.
