My overall experience at that school wasn't the best but it also want the worst. I had access to great councilors and the social worker, Mrs. Alley, was a really big help as I was going through a lot of issues.
The teachers, for the most part were amazing and really cared about their students well being. There was only two that I had that just didn't work well with me and other students because they didn't care at all.
Other students there did give me a hard time and it was the worst for me my senior year when one teacher allowed his student to go on daily rampages about how the rest of us needed to work harder because our work wasn't even good enough to qualify as exceptional. But I did have amazing friends to help me out whenever I needed them.
The sports department was pretty alright. The coaches pushed us hard to get to where we were by the end and it was an amazing time playing with the other members. I loved it.
This school may not be the best but it is great!

My experience in Hunter High School has been rather positive. The school prides itself in its huge diversity, and that is definitely one of its strengths! Hunter High has people from all sorts of income levels, races, religions, sexualities, etc., and this diversity is what encourages its students to stick together no matter the differences. I find that the teachers are very willing to help out its students, and they often make sure to keep the learning environment positive and work vigorously to ensure the success of their students.
My only gripe with the school is the state of the equipment. We've got quite a few issues with our technology. Some of our equipment is incredibly outdated, and others are just falling apart. This issue persists in multiple departments, but it's slowly being worked on.
My experience at Hunter High School has been an overall average experience. One thing that I loved about my high school is how diverse the community was. There were so many different cultures that further enhanced my perspective of the world. However, there would be some changes that I would like to see take action. These include more student parking, better athletic coaching and programs, and less parking tickets. It is difficult to be on time when there is not enough parking spots for students. This is when we result in parking in unacceptable parking spots primarily to be on time to class. Because of this, students are ticketed multiple times for just trying to be on time to class. Having been a part of an athletic team, there is a need for more updated coaching skills and techniques. By making these changes, the high school would be a much better place for the students and the community surrounding.
