Hurricane High School Reviews
Personally, my experience has been pretty good. I’ve loved the school the past three years, but the principal just retired and the entire school is sad.
Although with only a class size of ~300, the area and community was serendipitous to have not only a small town atmosphere of care and support, but also the outside, well rounded education one would normally expect in higher education settings.
Overall I really like Hurricane High school the teachers are very nice and supportive, but recently we have doing a new program that the seniors get senior cards that give them the senior privileges to earn this you need to score good on the end of the year test. Which for someone like me who isn’t good at test and feels a lot of pressure I feel like it isn’t that fair. Sometimes you also kind of feel like other kids get special treatment than others.
Hurricane High School is not a bad school, it's better than the other high schools in the county, but it is not exceptional. I've had several fantastic and friendly teachers there. I would prefer a greater focus on clubs and academics. In my opinion, it places too much of a focus on sports.
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.
I likex most of my high school year when a teacher came and he taught me very well from my junior year to senior year. He was a person i could talk to and help me when needed.
It's a high school. I mean what do you expect? Zac Efron and Vanesse Hudgens look-alikes to start singing about how much Hurricane means to them? Nah, fam. This is your typical American high school, where we are basically biding our time until graduation.
Hurricane High provides a good opportunity for an education. I feel the emphasis is too much on teaching to the masses. I was able to succeed by challenging myself.
Overall, I have had a very good experience with Hurricane High School. Going to Hurricane, I have been given countless opportunities to excel through academics, athletics, and leadership. With great staff and a diverse student body, I have been able to get the most out of my high school career.
I have had a very good experience at hurricane high school. Overall, I have had nice teachers and administrators. One issue would be the lack of diversity the school has to offer.
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.
There are innumerable opportunities to further yourself, and being a leader is greatly encouraged by all of the faculty. The sports, band, and choir are all highly rated and are one of the best in the state. Students and staff have always been welcoming and genuine, and urge you to get involved in the school. All of these components make for an amazing four years at Hurricane High School because of the chance to discover yourself, create connections, meet new people, and there's always something for someone.
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.
The teachers were generally nice and helpful. I would change the way they deal with seniors, they gave us stickers like we were little kids to show us we were doing good.
I have been at HHS for 4 years and have loved every minute. I have enjoyed staying involved in extracurricular and in-school activities. The teachers and staff really do care about their students. The only things I would change would be to put more of our money in to school renovations and updates.
Overall, Hurricane High school is a really good school. However, the favoritism in teachers and staff towards students with money and popular kids is ridiculous.
Hurricane High School's students and staff welcomed me with open arms when I transferred from my former school. The community itself was so involved with the school. The sports programs were all backed up one hundred percent by not only the student section, but also the entire community. Coming from a very small school, I was overwhelmed by the size, but everyone was sure to give me a warm welcome. The teachers all prepared me well for college and gave me the tools I needed to be successful throughout the remainder of my academic endeavors. My last four years at Hurricane High School have been great, and I believe transferring here was one of the best decisions I ever made.
