At Hotchkiss, everyone genuinely cares about you. Although we’re a small school, everyone is super nice to each other & respect is an important principle at our school. Our teachers are passionate about teaching and also care deeply about our well-being. I feel more than prepared for college, as did many alumni of HHS. Our environment really effects the drive for success of our students , which is a strong one. Overall, Hotchkiss High School is an amazing school that I would one day bring my child to in the future.

Hothckiss High School is a small school, which means the teachers are able to know each student and their individual learning styles.
The teachers at this school are very encouraging of a student's ideas, but they also provide constructive criticism when it is needed. The teaching styles vary from class to class, but every teacher is approachable and knowledgable when you ask for help. The teachers have an interest in the student's life that goes beyond just the classroom; there have been many times when I have been struggling with a situation within my life and I was able to ask a teacher for advice. Not many schools offer this opportunity to talk with a teacher as a person and a role model.
