Hotchkiss High School is a great school!! Although there have been some mishaps with certain students and things, I love the diversity here and how small it is. All of the faculty here are amazing. I have a great relationship with all the teachers and other faculty. Almost most of the time I don't have issues or conflict with faculty. I am very blessed to have had my four year of high school here.

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.
