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!

I struggled the first 2 1/2 years of high school because of my anxiety, it was hard to learn the way the teachers wanted me to, I needed to have my own time and teach myself based off notes. Which is why, 2nd semester, Junior year, I switched to homebound, and it’s almost a month and a half into Senior year and my grades have excelled ever since I started homebound!
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.
