Hurricane High School gave me and my siblings the best years of our lives. Between sports, clubs, and classes, we constantly stayed busy. The great thing about HHS is that they accept everyone, no matter your race, religion, or even your size! There is no other school I would’ve wanted to attend for my high school years. All the teachers and faculty were always so loving, and if I could stay in high school forever, I would. I’m so thankful for my time at HHS and it’s sad to say it’s almost over. The only thing I would change about HHS is that sometimes you can notice they expect more out of students who perform on a higher level, I’m in no way saying I don’t like a challenge, but I think it would be better for all the students if they held us all to the same standard.

My experience at Hurricane High School was unmatched. The staff is some of the best in the state and they are always there for the students. Teachers are always able to work with athletic and other extracurricular activities. The school culture is one of the most welcoming and accepting a student/parent could ask for. The entire community rallies around the school and it shows. Their are various outlets for support around the community and in the school, all you have to do is just ask. The athletics at this school are some of the best in the state, along with their facilities. All in all, this is a great school and community to grow in. I highly recommend Hurricane High School. GO SKINS!
Hurricane High School was the first public school I attended. I went to a private K-12 school up until my sophomore year. Hurricane High provided me with the best transition experience from private schooling to public schooling. The principal, Mr. McClanahan, my school counselor, Mrs. McCann, and many of my teachers over the last few years have really made an impact on my life and I am lucky to say I am a Hurricane Redskin!
