There are plenty of extracurricular opportunities at Hughesville High School! There's SADD, which stands for Students Against Destructive Decisions. It's a club for students that want to get involved and prevent others from texting while driving, doing drugs, and making other bad decisions that could ruin lives. The student counsel is very good and available to all students in grades 9-12. The student officers are elected by members every year and they take great care to listen to everyones opinions. The Future Business Leaders of America club is also excellent. Our school usually has multiple members in FBLA make it to states and even regionals! There's plenty of other clubs including Archery club and Drama club.

The academics at Hughesville High School are excellent! There's a variety of classes so everyone can meet their wants. Our school offers Academic, Honors, and AP classes of most core classes (Math, English, ect.). The teachers are excellent and always try their best to make sure all of their students understand the material and succeed. The scheduling process is very simple. Towards the end of the school year students are called into the auditorium by grade to talk about the next school year. A list of classes are located on our iPads and students get to choose what they want. English, Math, Science, and a Social Studies class are mandatory along with gym and lunch, but students can decide if they want to take a bunch of electives or other addition core classes. The workload is pretty average, I never struggle to finish my homework even though I work.
My experience at Hughesville High School has been rocky. In 7th grade i was bullied to edge and again in 10th grade. I didn't want to leave my bed, i got panic attacks knowing i had to go to school, and i had serious separation issues from my mom and dog. However, college has always been a must and a big dream for me. Without the help of the science teachers at Hughesville, i wouldn't be where i am today and i cant thank them enough. We definitely have the best administration ive seen.
