My experience at Hopkins High School has been excellent. The teachers genuinely care about the students - not only that they are learning the material but also how they are doing as people. There is a wide array of courses offered, with many AP and honors classes along with many interesting electives. There are many sports and clubs and it is very easy to start a club of your own. The school lunches are truly delicious and the facilities are amazing. I am so happy that I got to be a student at Hopkins - it is an outstanding district!

I have really enjoyed my time at Hopkins High School. Firstly, I think they have great academics. The Spanish classes that they offer that I have taken are rigorous and enlightening and the AP courses that I have taken have made me feel more prepared for my college education. I also am really impressed with their growing awareness of mental health. To illustrate this awareness, Hopkins has many professional therapists that are available during school hours and also have therapy dogs roaming around the building. However, there are some aspects of my school that I wish could be improved. For instance, I feel as though my school does not take sexual harassment seriously. Despite this grievance, there are many clubs and student-led organizations, such as "Girls United MN", that tackle these issues within Hopkins High School. Because of this, I feel as though Hopkins can be described as a community of high-school scholars that are compassionate about their education and well-being.
Hopkins Senior High School has a unique affect on the people that go there. I graduated in 2012 and am still extremely close to many of the friends I made there, one is even my roommate. Yet, it's not just me and my friends, I see so many people in other friend groups and in the grades above and below who are still actively hanging with their best friends from high school.So what makes Hopkins so different? I believe the school created a very amazing sense of diversity in interests. I was an athlete who was in band and choir, as well as an AP fine art student. Arts and sports were harmonious and equally appreciated among all of the students. This school really made finding your true interests an extremely delightful experience. I think so much of the person I am today was developed by my experience at Hopkins and I couldn't be more grateful.
