I feel privileged to have grown up in the Huntington Union Free School District and Huntington High School has been instrumental in shaping who I am as a person. The diversity of the student body has opened my eyes to new perspectives and fostered an environment rich with collaboration. The school's administration could not have been more considerate and accommodating. The vast opportunities in music and the arts (marching band, chamber choir, orchestra, drama club) combined with a myriad of STEM exposure (namely the robotics team, science olympiad, etc.) along with humanities programs (National History, School Newspaper) ensure that any student can pursue their passions. AP courses have prepared me for college curriculum. The school's security team succeeds in providing a safe and welcoming educational environment. I love Huntington; Go Blue Devils!

At Huntington High School there's something for everyone. There are a variety of clubs, sports, and activities to get involved in. I like the sense of community and broad diversity. There are great programs available and great resources; if you're having a rough day, there are people to talk to, if you have questions about college, you can utilize the college office, if you need community service, you can go to the main office and see where you can help out, and the list goes on and on. I feel like most of the teachers truly care about their students and their success. Students are able to have their suggestions heard by the principal/administration and sometimes even implemented! I personally love going to school events and programs and I think my school and district, in general, have a significant amount of school pride and spirit.
Honestly I didn’t like Huntington High School. Some teachers were really kind and loving the was the best part that I got to know great teachers. In the other hand one of the Deans without mentioning names was really disrespectful, he always cursed and try to be funny but it was really annoying. One time when I had a question he gave me disrespectful answer which I respectfully listen and walked away . The school atmosphere is horrible I really couldn’t wait to graduate because it felt like you were in jail. I always tried to stay positive each day but it was irritating going to school starting from the deans to the students. I really hope they could change their language .
