Hubbard High School excels magnificently in all categories, The schools ethical diversity is big, lots of different cultures involved here, The safety of this school is very strict and big, never any fights or anyone getting hurt here. The teachers here are tough but they stay on you to prepare you for college and its not a easy task but they do everything it takes to prepare you. There's NUMEROUS clubs and ACTIVITIES here after school, Donations, as well as food drives time to time! Anything from band, drumline, to poms and bachata! chess too lol. The academics here are top-notch, they really put you to the test when it comes to learning here. The resources here can easily be accessed by a majority of any councilor's here! They helped me out earlier this year when I had a missing credit due to my previous school not documenting it, but Hubbard had my back and makes sure I'm on track to graduate. Overall, I think Hubbard is a very good school.

As a high school senior, I was able to experience four years in Hubbard which offered many opportunities. I've enjoyed being part of the International Baccalaureate program as it has prepared me for the rigorous work I will receive in college. The small size of the school provides students with the sense of community. Teachers are very accessible as many offer additional help to their students by having after/before school hours for students to see them. There are a tremendous amount of clubs for students to be a part of. Although, I do like the school and its education system, I believe there is room for improvement. The school's food isn't very good or nutritious. There is a small salad bar close in the cafeteria that isn't extremely popular with the students. There are meetings for the parents, but the number of parents who attend is very small. The schedules of assemblies constantly change, showing the disorganization of the school.
My overall experience with Hubbard High School wasn't the best but nobody's high school experience is perfect. There is much diversity in the school and the clubs are great! I was on the Archery Team, Debate Team and the Book club. Joining clubs was the best experience for me. I got to meet so many new people. I was doing well academically but the teachers aren't the best. That was one bad experience at Hubbard was the facility and administration. You could tell there was very little parent involvement. The students who have difficulties in school don't show up to report cards, mostly the students who do well. The lunch food was the worst part! I usually didn't eat at lunch but mostly everybody lunch because they were hungry.
