Hot Springs World Class High School Reviews

I moved to HSWCHS in the 5th grade from a very small school. I went from having 50 students in grade to having nearly 300 students. I was afraid at first, but had no trouble in making friends. I loved being exposed to the diversity. The education, sports, and clubs/activities that HSWCHS had to offer was endless. The teachers and staff were very helpful as they helped navigate me throughout the new school and faces. I then moved onto middle school where I made even more friends by joining the basketball team with the sweetest coach. Soon high school came around and I was voted onto the homecoming court not once but twice! I’ve became friends with people and made memories that I will cherish forever and it’s all thanks to Hot Springs World Class High School.

I really liked that this school was a diverse place not just in race and culture, but in opportunities. For the academically driven students, there were plenty of options and rigorous courses. For those looking for vocational knowledge and experience, there was an academic path that connected to the local community college where students could go learn a trade skill that would help find a niche in the workforce. Things that I didn't like where minute things like rowdy students and inefficiency when it came to disciplinary actions in certain situations but overall it is a good school and I entered college prepared and ready to continue my academic career.
My experience of High School has been full of ups and downs, success and failure and there's always been a strong support system. Between my teachers and my coaches I have observed various ways of thinking when it comes to completing tasks. I used to procrastinate on getting my work done on time and efficiently but now I always try to finish my work during school so I won't have a crammed schedule after school or on weekends. If you would ask my teachers what was the biggest change they've seen by me I think it would be how I have matured and my effort to maintain good grades.
