I love the students and teachers of Huntsville High School. I have made lifelong memories and friends. They offer quality academics and lots of athletic and artistic opportunities for students. I would like to see improvements in the cleanliness of the facilities. It is rare to find paper towels in the bathrooms, and once I took a crafts class from a teacher with very limited art supplies. Overall, HHS is a very safe school, and I am proud to be a student there. We have a spirited student body, successful sports teams, and many opportunities for fun. I have had some incredibly caring and motivational teachers during my years at Huntsville High, as well.
Huntsville High School presents a great environment for students to take advantage of some truly great teachers, however, like the city of Huntsville, sometimes the political climate infiltrates the school atmosphere. Additionally, it would be nice for some more money to be put into the school so that students have proper textbooks of the correct edition and subject.
