The Humboldt High School is a very good school to go to. The faculty, facilities, academics, and activities are all exemplary. The staff throughout the entire school is supportive, wanting the best for each student and individual success. The facilities are great and always improving to better accommodate new activities, growth, and overall satisfaction. The school offers a wide range of classes anywhere from Agriculture to Art to Clothing construction. They also offer a variety of College Courses, AP classes, and college preparatory classes. Throughout the school there are also many extra curricular activities to get involved in. Sports teams are one example; many of the students stay involved on sporting teams. There is also a great music department. Clubs that the school offers range anywhere from Mock Trial to Spanish Club. Overall the school is very well rounded. It is in a nice town, with great people, and a great place to go.

Humboldt is a smaller but comfortable community. The smaller class size makes it easy for me to get to know the other people in my class as well as get help from any of my teachers in any subject. Humboldt offers a variety of classes as well as extracurricular activities from sports to music to theater as well! All of these extracurricular programs are well established and welcome any students who wish to participate. Overall this is a pretty nice school to attend!
I very much value my experience and my education at Humboldt high school, most teachers I feel are very good and qualified to not only teach but also help guide the students. While the education at HHS I feel is great, the HHS culture is a very tricky thing to navigate, I often found that all that mattered to a majority students, parents and sometimes teachers, was what your last name was and what that name means within the Humboldt community.
