My last few years spent at Huffman High has been really interesting and a learning experience. I've got to admit, I did learn to make the best of these few years. There were some ups and downs, but what motivated me the most was wanting to graduate. I had some fun and I've learned a lot being in high school. It'll be days where you may slack, and days where you realize your friends aren't you friends anymore. Do not get caught up in mess, or boyfriend drama. If I could have given advice to myself or someone entering high school it would be to stay focus and don't be afraid to be smart. Be you, be unique, be OUTSTANDING! My last advice I would give to someone would be to make the best of your high school years, because just think about it those years really only happen once.
Review Huffman High School Magnet
My experience at Huffman was about the best as any other school thats in the state of Alabama. Huffman high school taught me a lot of life lessons. We might have a had some bad incidents in the past, but we end up being a bigger and better family than before the incident happen. Huffman is a great academically school and as well have some of best athletes. Always remember student come first than athletics. One thing I wish I can take back is my grades the should of been a lot higher than what they were but my commitment it is to do 110% better in college. Thank you Huffman for making me be the better man I am today.
This is a VERY involved school where everyone cares and wants to be apart of their students Future! When I transferred they worked very hard to help me integrate into the school smoothly. Also they helped me fix my courses to help me graduate on time ( i am an out of state transfer).
