HHS has been very supportive of the arts. We have an excellent choir, drama, band, and orchestra programs. My children have enjoyed participating in these activities. The school also offers several options as far as building trades programs and dual credit and AP courses.

Huron High School is a pretty awesome School. It is a very quiet place. Huron High is a very diverse School. Many different cultures, Karen, Hispanic, amd Burmese. We have great ESL program for students. Huron High School is a great School for students who like small school with no disturbances.
My experience with Huron High School was okay. I really like how diverse the school is with it's students and faculty. Although I would change the schools expectations of the students. I feel the standards are set way to low and they are merely trying to push us out to get rid of us. I would also change how easy going the rules are. I feel that kids are just given a slap on the wrist when they really should have had detention or school suspension. It is a decent school, but when I have kids I wouldn't really want to send them here.
