I'm currently a senior at Huguenot High School, and one of the things that I like the most about Huguenot High School is the diversity that the schools has. Since I was in 9th grade I felt good at the environment that this High Schools. Most people may say that Huguenot Hugh School is one of the worst High Schools in the district, but I feel like if you relay want to learn ad be better it's you decision. Honestly, all the teachers that I have had are great and they are committed to their work and be a help for the students, there are teachers that are better than others but they are striving to teach you in a way that you are able to understand.

My experience at Huguenot High School has yet to be completed seeing as though I am a rising senior but in the past 3 years I would rate my experience as ordinary. My school isn’t anything spectacular or has anything that stands out about it other than the new renevaywd builiding. I would like to change the way faculty interacts with the students, the food we are given, and would like to add more clubs and activities.
The teachers at Huguenot High really do look out for their students and treat them almost has their own. Huguenot has a Future Center, unlike many other rps schools, and it is very helpful for helping students plan their life after high school. Sadly, Huguenot has a bad rep due to students not knowing how to maturely handle their issues which results in a lot of fights.
