I liked the atmosphere that the students brought to the campus and really loved all of my teachers! They all inspired me in more ways than one by helping me decide which college to attend, and possibly which major I should choose.

Hunter Huss is not the school people make it out to be. To those on the outside, it looks unstructured, unsafe, and overall a bad place to be. However, this is all untrue. Great things are happening at Huss: our graduation rate is currently around 88%, last year's senior class raised over $6 million in scholarships, our sports teams are very competitive, our new CTE programs are wonderful, and our fines arts programs are flourishing! Being a student myself, I have witnessed firsthand the improvements taking place and am quite excited for the future of our school! Our teachers here are amazing and are always available to help students in need! Overall, Hunter Huss is a great school with an amazing staff helping its students grow and give them a chance to succeed in our contemporary world!
Hunter Huss High School is a very different place, different on many levels. We are mainly African American, and we are judged the most for that in my county. Most people think that we're all not in the right state of mind, which is wrong. I love attending Hunter Huss because there are many of us that are extremely smart, and dedicated to our education. Hunter Huss is a very family oriented place. Every faculty and staff knows every student. They support us with everything we encounter. I honestly think the students should change their behavior so that we can stop getting hatred from the community.
