My experience at huffman will be one of the most memorable moments of my life. Huffman itself taught me more than just how to write with a pencil, but most importantly how to be independent. The environment at huffman was strange to me in a way that inspired me to want to do better for myself. i learned my most important lesson at huffman which was to become independent. This class was way more complex to me because i didn't understand pre-AP algebra before i got there. My calculus teacher got on to me every minute of his class simply because i didn't understand, but i didn't understand because my former teachers never fully taught me. However, I realized that everything is not handed out to you and that you have to do way more in your own to assure that you understand because at the end of the day nobody is going to hold your hand through life. I'm so glad i experienced both sides of an educator at huffman because it didn't kill me but only made me stronger and wiser.

As an alumni of Huffman High School, I truly enjoyed my educational experience while I was there. I was the Senior Class President, a member of the Beta Club, and soon became a member of the National Honor Society. The clubs/ activities that were available helped us to stay involved with school events. I do feel that resources are limited to an extent, but more funds should be provided to promote better resources for students.
Huffman High School isn’t the perfect school but it is the best school there can be. When tough situations awaken us, we all stand together as one while facing the difficulty that challenges us. Even though their could be improvement in the way the staff are doing their jobs around the school.
