This high school was the smallest school I have ever seen, but I loved it that way! It made getting to know everyone easier! The sense of community was very big there! The teachers were not only passionate about what they taught but they were also really good at making the lessons interesting. I loved the variety of people and activities offered there. The experiences I had at Hughson High School are ones that I wouldn't trade for the world.

Attending Hughson High has been a great experience for me. I have not only received an great education, but also enjoyed playing sports and being apart of the music program. I have been able to take various AP classes to prepare me for college. The teachers are very caring and have given me what I need to advance my future. I do wish there were electives to choose from that revolve around engineeeing, however Hughson is a small town therefore I understand why these programs are not offered.
My high school experience was ok. The administration was not very supportive as far as school spirit and letting us kids be kids! Everything has too many rules!
