The faculty is amazing. The teachers, honors teachers especially, truly care about what impact they have on the students and are so much fun! I would love to see more support in the arts at Hurricane. I did mainly those, and I can't help but wonder how many more opportunities for success I would have had if there was more support. The community aspect of this school is amazing, and most of the teachers wouldn't want to teach anywhere else because of the kids (and have stated so).

Hurricane High School is one of the best schools in our district. It's a school full of love and family. Our principal, Jody Rich, is one of the kindest men you will ever meet! He learns all of his students by name and make an effort to get to know them and helps as much as he can. The teachers do their best to help their students pass and succeed, which is very admirable. The students are so involved in supporting their school's sports teams and the clubs are all so entertaining and have so much passion in them! The drama club is my favorite. Our director, Richard Hill, is the most amazing man and has become a part of my family. I've loved every part of high school here.
Hurricane High school is a great school! Jody Rich is the best principal in the whole universe, because he makes every one feel special and he's always there to talk to about anything. All the teachers at Hurricane are also great. Another great thing about Hurricane High School is everyone there is one big family. One thing Hurricane could improve on is cliques.
