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.
Its a big facility with ok staffing and teachers , large classes but its not maintainedvery well. I can go into the restroom and half the time soap isnt stocked, so I thinks its overpopulated or understaffed. Theres not much freedom either with frequent lock downs. The foods fine for the cost. The culture is pure debauchery.
