Huntsville High School is the reason I want to be ambitious and try to get all the scholarships I can; because no one there ever lifted a finger to help me discuss or decide what I want to do with my future. Huntsville truly has problems and needs to improve them. Things like drug use, abuse of power, bullying, and general mishandling of student affairs are rampant here. Yet, this school is not all bad. There are shining gems of people and teachers who truly value students and try to make the highschool experience a nice one, and I am grateful for that. Huntsville is also full of laughs, and it is at times full of life and joy.

The school has a really low reading ACT score, and the school seems to be trying to fix that by making everyone read in their free time which causes some kids to want to read less. The good thing about the school is the teachers, some teachers really want you to succeed and will do anything they can to help you, very few don't care about whether you succeed or not. The food is mediocre and sometimes not filling, but its alright overall. The lunch ladies, janitors, and the bus drivers are very kind. There are multiple AP or Honors classes that someone can enroll in but a lot of those classes overlap and its hard to get into one without missing another. The basketball team is amazing as well as the cheer-leading team, the football team tries its hardest but doesn't win much, the band is good, and the choir is as well, the band and choir go to community events to sing or play. The clubs are fun, but their aren't that many. Overall a good school, but like any school it has its problems.
This place is probably the worst thing you could do for yourself or your child. The staff has about 4 members that actually care about the children, administrators are so bad that Huntsville has lost over a hundred staff members in the last few years (which is about the size of each graduating class also, only 100 people). All the kids in this school are awful, there's a major pill problem that no one talks about until a kid overdoses in the hall, then they show us some 30 minute PSA video in response and that's it whether or not they're on pills they're probably an alcoholic or a stoner. There's nothing to do in this town so all the kids are getting lost in drugs. Kids also vape openly and smoke cigarettes 2 feet off campus after school. Please, whatever you do do not send your children to this place.
