Hume-Fogg is a great school with great opportunities. Throughout my four years at HFA, I've been constantly challenged, but in a way that is enjoyable. While classes can be difficult, the curriculum is taught in a way that is enthralling. The teachers at Hume-Fogg are incredibly supportive, and many of them have inspired me to be the best person that I can be. They are understanding of the stress that students have and are always willing to talk or help out. Hume-Fogg has many different opportunities; there are many different honors and AP courses that are sure to challenge you, but also spark your interest. Hume-Fogg truly has prepared me for the future as the school and teachers have taught me skills that will follow me through life. I have built up my confidence and have learned how hard one must work to be successful. Overall, HFA is a great school that is constantly enjoyable, despite challenges.
I am very proud to be a Hume Fogg student. Not a single person at this school shows up, either as a student, a teacher, or an administrator, looking to coast through the day or give the very minimum of effort. Every student tries their best in their academics, working their hardest to network and to conquer difficult challenges. The teachers themselves are genuinely invested in making sure each and every student leaves the building having learned something new. One teacher, Mr. Montenegro, took on the challenge of teaching 175 students at once throughout 7 periods. The high passing rate of that class is a testament to the ability of the teachers and students. Hume Fogg sees challenges and rises to meet them.
