Hume-Fogg Academic is a school that values honesty, integrity, and above all kindness. The environment at HFA is very welcoming and cozy. There are all kinds of people with different interests and personalities. Overall the environment is pretty healthy. All of our teachers push to do our absolute best and provide all the help and support they can. Although we’re still working on making HFA more diverse, HFA continues to accept and be open to new ideas, clubs, and cultural celebrations. One of my favorite things about Hume-Fogg is our international day. We get together and celebrate all the beautiful and different backgrounds and cultures of my peers. I’m so happy I decided to attend. It seemed pretty intimidating at first, but trust me HFA welcomes anyone! Blue Knight Be Kind!

Hume-Fogg is not your ordinary school. Often students who attend here are referred to as nerds and that seems to be all people , but people are clueless to the magic that happens inside the "Castle". At Hume-Fogg you will never be alone, there will always be someone in your corner. The diversity is rich and very inclusive and we take pride in celebrating each other and our differences. One of my favorite qualities of the school is the efforts our teachers make to ensure that we are succesful. Not only do they challenge us academically but they geniuinely care about us individually..mentally and physically. I can say that Ive learned many valuable life lessons that will stick with me forever. I love my school and how much it has prepared me for my future. It has actually made me excited to use all of my knowledge. I am very lucky to have been able to attend Hume-Fogg and will not take what it has taught me for granted. I give my school a 10,000 out of 10!
Hume-Fogg definitely prepares their students for college. The academic classes are challenging yet rewarding and teachers always create a safe and enjoyable space for learning. I personally resinate more with the musical opportunities at Hume-Fogg, but I still pushed myself to do well academically. The musical programs are one of the best and the teachers bring out each students best performance qualities. I’ve also always felt very accepted amongst my peers and have never felt like I didn’t belong. I’m extremely happy that I was able to attend Hume-Fogg for all 4 years!
