The staff is great. You can create great relationships with everyone from teachers to custodians. Very few resources are available at the school. The students skip class a lot so there are always students in the hallway and a few fights. P.S. All the academies have been combined into one school now.

I greatly enjoy the school. There’s a lot of activities and so many sports offered. Both my brother and I attend this school and are very involved. A good portion of the school are also involved creating a community feel inside and outside the class. Teachers are well prepared and show enthusiasm when teaching. I would gladly send my future children to this high school.
My experience at HPHS Nursing Academy is that this school has a great amount of diversity. Many people believe that this school is a gruesome school, but if you go to school at HPHS than your mind will broaden. Even though this school has a bad reputation, I believe if we help the next generation of students going into Hartford High, they may have a chance to change the reputation.
