Huntley High School Reviews
Huntley High School has so many opportunities to offer any student. Between the different educational academies, such as the Fine Arts Academy and Medical Academy, to our Blended learning. Blended learning allows us the freedom to have a class half online and half in class as well as preparing us for college. There is a strong presence of diversity and involvement at the school. There are tons of ways to get involved and if you don’t find something, you can create it at the school.
Everyone is so friendly, however I do not feel safe 100% of the time. There have been many threats that cause problems. Aside from that, there are many different resources to help improve my education and high school experience. I really feel like the teachers care about us, and want us to do our best. I am blessed to have spent my four years of high school at Huntley.
it nice. so nice. I wrote a really long review and accidentally deleted it, and now I have given up. Stream Idol on youtube. Friday night and the lights are low, Looking out for a place to go, Where they play the right music, Getting in the swing, You come to look for a king, Anybody could be that guy, Night is young and the music's high, With a bit of rock music, Everything is fine, You're in the mood for a dance.

The administration is too focused on punishing students rather than helping them. They don't care about your behavioral past. They go against what the student handbook says and give you detentions that you shouldn't get. New topic is the crossdressing ban. They tell us to dress according to handbook which has nothing about crossdressing in it. SCOTUS declares that clothing is protected under freedom of speech and by banning the way we dress without it being in the agreed dress code is an infringement upon our rights.
the school really feels like home. if you’re planning to move to the area, i wouldn’t worry about it.
I love Huntley High School. In the recent years, Huntley has been expanded, modernized, and added the Blended learning program. Huntley offers students many clubs and resources to make sure they have the best time in high school. I am involved in many clubs and the Varsity Basketball team. By being involved in these clubs and sports, I get to travel the country, meet new people, and gain new experiences that I will use in the future. Anyone can find a club that they enjoy at Huntley. One of my favorite parts is the blended learning program. With there being almost 3,000 kids in Huntley, not everyone can be in the building at once. Having a blended class means that you do not have to come to class everyday, but you have to do classwork online. This prepares students for college and makes them responsible for their own learning. The one thing that I would change is the amount of diversity in the school. Less than 10% of our school is minority and I believe they need more representation.
The main thing about Huntley High School that really impresses me is the fascinating and revolutionary Blended Learning Program. This new approach to learning gives students way more freedom and responsibility which only helps prepare them for college. I have found that here at Huntley High School there is a good amount of diversity throughout the school, and I believe the diversity rates will only increase every year. There are an immense amount of clubs, sports, and after school activities to choose from. Huntley High School gives an overall exciting and fun high school experience with events going on all throughout the school year, keeping students involved.
After attending Huntley HS I wasn't into sports or the clubs. I focused the majority of my time on my academics. I enjoyed the classroom time and I wish the school had more resources related to Business and Accounting. The teachers are pretty friendly and easy to talk to. The students are friendly and is easy to make friends. The facilty is very small compared to all the students who attend. You are cramped within the halls and the school buses fit 3 to a sit a huge safety issue. The cafeteria food is horrible. The safety of the school is very good equipped with security from the local police department, metal detectors and cameras. I would add more resource for students interested in Business and Accounting .
I love Huntley high. There are of course bad parts of everyone's high school experience but for the most part, Huntley is great. The administration while occasionally unorganized is fantastic, wants to help, and is pushing innovation. I've had very few run ins with bad people and I've only disliked 1 teacher. Counselors are great and helpful. They are easy to contact and make appointments with. AP offered but not forced on those who don't want it. The environment feels safe. Students taking action is supported and encouraged by staff (during school shooting protests for example).
Academic experience was fantastic. Good teachers for the most part, and always had a way to get help if needed. However, we did experience some safety issues.
I liked how Huntley High School updated itself and grew with the times by adapting new technology and changing the learning environment. However, I wish more had been done to combat bullying and mental health issues.
At our high school we have the blended program that really got students ready for college. Class did not meet every day and students had work to do when they were not in class. Also I was a part of medical academy and learned all the careers avaliable to me and got to work one on one with an actual doctor in my field.
Huntley High School offers a wide variety of academic opportunities and resources at their school. PLTW courses offered give students who are interested in a medical or engineering related field a chance to earn college credits through the University of Iowa. Their blended learning programs also teach students how to have self-responsibility and time management skills in order to prepare for college.
There are many programs for teens to assist if they are having a difficult time. I really feel they have a great team of teachers and administration.
I would like to see more connection from students. Most students stay to themselves and don't talk that much. I would like to see less focus on making the school itself bigger and more focus on making the school our house. We are there for four years, more than we are at home. We need to be able to be happy calling it our second home.
Huntley provided an outstanding high school experience. The staff from lunch lady to principal all showed they cared and were part of a team. My kids were also greatly impacted by the devotion to teaching and strong character values taught to them by their teachers. The school was innovative and challenging and did a great job in helping prepare them for college.
I think Huntley High school was pretty good overall. There was problems with activities because they cared too much about sports especially football. Also the food could be better. On other thing that could be better would be the amount of help that counselors give for college and scholarships.
