Hughson High School is very small, which means there's a good teacher-to-student ratio, but it also means you're seeing the same faces. The campus is old and dirty and the food is nasty, but all of the teachers are really awesome! Classes vary widely in difficulty, but all of the teachers give you the help you need to succeed. They're focused on helping you grow as a person and preparing you for college. Office faculty and counselors are also extremely helpful and the CSF program helps you qualify for scholarships. Other clubs include Key Club, Model UN, drum line, guitar club, and much more. The kids here are predominantly white and hispanic, so there's not a lot of diversity if that's what you're looking for. Most of the people here has a very closed-minded conservative view which can be annoying, but overall it's a very safe school with almost no violence or bullying. A good chunk of the kids do drugs though, which I suppose you would see at any high school.

Throughout the years, I've had my fair share of bumps and bruises, mistakes and achievements, and so have everyone else at this school. But we learn from all of those, and it helps us become a better person.
So all Im going to say, is compared to most high schools, this high school is a really great school, and it´s the school to be at. I wouldn't want it any other way. Thank you for making these past years, the best years of my life, I couldn't be happier.
I really enjoy being at Hughson High School it has made me a stronger person and it has helped me grow. The one thing that I would change about the school is the lunch lines. Having them all open would help. The teachers at Hughson High have a warm welcoming to their students. They provide their students with different opportunities and new experiences. I would like to see them do more activities during school so that their students can be more involved and more excited to come to school. Their programs and classes prepare their students very well giving them the education that they need.
