Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet School Reviews

I love my school. It's my favorite place to be, and I actually can't wait for school holidays to get over with so I can go back! The amount of freedom we have at Hume-Fogg is very nice, and we excel in all areas. Our theatre department and bands are actually higher-ranked than the district's school of the arts. Academics are best in the state, and we have several kids going to Ivy Leagues each year.

We have a lot of outside events and opportunities for all students to get involved or pursue their interests. It's just a really great place.
Review Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet School
I have attended Hume-Fogg since freshman year, and it has been one of the most life changing experiences thus far. I have learned so much and have meet some of the best teachers and peers. One of my most fond memory of Hume-Fogg was in my AP Environmental Science when we went to Treemont and learned about the mountains and continued with each other and nature. Another time was freshman year when I met one of the most influences teachers I have ever come to know. Mr. Roberts, who has been teaching at HFA for about ten years, was the sponsor for the nature pals club. We went on camp outs quite frequently and this is where i meet some of my closest friends and learned all about the outdoors and stars as well as finding myself and my true career calling. Overall my experience at Hume-Fogg has been incredible and am excited to graduate knowing I received a quality education.
Hume Fogg is an amazing school! Although it is very stressful at times, the teachers are very helpful and kind. There are a variety of classes to take that can cater to anyone.
