It's a good school i have had some fantastic teachers and some poor ones. I've had teachers help me with subjects I struggle with. Classroom sizes are nice and I've made good friends throughout highschool. The lunch hour is a short thirty minutes and the food isn't the best so i pack a lunch. I know everybody in my grade because it's a small school. The buildings are nice and they have a library.

I grew up in this town, my sister graduated from here as well, and neither of s have had a great experience with students, teachers, or academics. most of the teachers employed here are really good people, but are horrible educators, some are great people as well as great educators, and of course only a few are terrible at both. its mostly the terrible educators and great people though that make up the staff here at HSHS. the student body has never been extremely supportive of each other and there is a lot of hatred between everyone. its overall just not a great environment and i'm truthfully ready to leave and move on to new adventures.
Hot Springs High School is not a bad school. However, the academics and sports programs are not good. For academics we have uneducated teachers who don't enforce work on their students. Also, the AP classes taught at the high school are a joke. I feel like the teachers aren't teaching valuable information that will prepare students for college. The sports at the school are not very good as well. It seems like the most popular sports are well funded while other sports get very little. The coaches at this school aren't very good, but they do give it their best. The fact that the coaches connect with their athletes make the sports at this school fun.
