All of the teachers that I had would genuinely care for their students. They tried their hardest to teach us, their students, and make sure that we grew so we at least a little more prepared for life in college. Now the administration is not the best. If a kid got into a fight, admin would turn their heads not even giving them a day of ISS. Although, if it were a white student, they would automatically put them into ISS. The only time the admin started to crackdown was the 2018 Spring Semester once the principal was already planning to leave. The teachers within Huntsville High School are fantastic and caring, the administration on the other hand needs to be worked on.

My experience at Huntsville High School has been okay. There is a unbalance of dedication, and effort that's put in from the teachers. Persoanally I am in all AP classes and my teachers want the best for me, but on numerous occasions I've about experiences of my fellow classmates that make them feel like they're not being supported in the best way. There is a lack of extracurricular activities.
My experience at Huntsville High School was challenging but well worth it. It was challenging based on class level (ex Pre Ap vs Regular) and the grading system which you either turn in your work on time or get 10 points deducted each day your work is late up to five days which after that, you receive a zero for your grade. Other than that, it was very competitive and the teachers were there to cheer you on. I would definitely recommend this school to a student planning on attending there.
