Hardest high school in CT, no doubt, but cruel. While there are some terrific teachers, there are major problems. 1. Wildly inconsistent teaching and little in the way of teacher quality standards/assessment, 2. Academic support in name only (run, don't walk, to your next choice school if you need extended time or other accommodations as Hopkins is not committed to serving kids who need any kind of assistance), 3. Ridiculous schedule that even teachers get wrong on a regular basis. All of these issues create stress for the students who already have plenty of academic reasons to be stressed and need this place to run better.
Great school with strong teachers who legitimately understand you and want only the best for you. The students are very unique and united. Politically, the school leans to the left and its decisions reflect that. Though it is advised against, many teachers allow their personal political views impact their lectures, but all in all they are fantastic educators of the highest caliber.
