Huron High School Reviews

All Categories
My children have been continually challenged to think and apply---the academics are top-notch with many AP and AC (accelerated, AP-track) offerings. Math and science are especially strong, and the humanities course is basically a demanding college course that integrates literature, music, art, and history. My oldest child graduated with tons of AP credit, went to a top university, and had no problems adjusting to the work since high school expectations were so high. The international (particularly Asian) population drives up the standards; many of the kids are taking A.P. Calculus BC, for example, as sophomores. There are usually many National Merit scholars and perfect ACT scores (which can make "normal" high achieving students feel like failures, and does make it very difficult to get an A in accelerated courses) . The music program is phenomenal! The orchestra and band win state and national competitions and often sound better than college level groups--some of the kids are accepted at top notch music schools.

The only downside is that the "regular" classes are filled with students who are not so driven, so the achievement gap earns Huron poorer ratings than it deserves. And the football team never wins---so other sports like basketball, soccer, field hockey, tennis and swimming get more respect.
Review Your School
My experience at Huron High School was very interesting. The school was very diverse, filled with resources, school activities, and the staff helped students prepare for their future. I will never forget the day when there was an assembly in my last year attending Huron High School. Students everywhere discussing their future, what college they are attending, majors, minors, etc. While waiting for the assembly to start, the assistant principle got on to the stage and said to us "The reason we prepare every student at Huron High School for college is because you guys are our future. You all will inspire the next generation to better themselves to do great things". From that day and forward, I have motivated myself to be best that I can be.
Great school! Very crowded, but the teachers were great. The faculty were involved and would do all they could to make sure you succeed. A lot of the counselors made sure you were on the right path to graduating and being accepted into college.
