Hurricane High School Reviews

Hurricane High school isn't quite the kind of place that makes people say "I can't wait to send my kid there!" It's not that it's an awful school: it's just that it's a very stereotypical American high school. And the stereotypical American high school isn't the type of place where everyone wants to spend their days. The curriculum is pretty standard: English, social studies, chemistry, biology, algebra, trigonometry, etc. Students have access to the usual counselors and career planners. But there's nothing extra: nothing special: nothing new and exciting to try to make the world (or at least the school) a better place.

There are so many academic opportunities at Hurricane High School! They offer dozens of online classes, several AP and Dual-credit courses, and a few Marshall University courses.
Hurricane was a pretty good experience from an academic standpoint. Aside from a campus filled with litter, water issues, and questionable spending decisions, there's many genuinely talented and passionate students. From award winning bands and show choirs, to sports teams who've reached and won championships. Despite the typical griping of high school students (I'm guilty of it admittedly) the school is actually a good place, one of the better High Schools in West Virginia from my own observations.
