Hutchinson Senior High School Reviews

I am a current student of this school, and it is one of the worst experiences i have ever had. The relationship between student and teacher is nonexistent, and I feel as if I am only being prepared to take a test, and not actually learning skills to improve my life. It has become a system of just studying for the grade. Frequently, many assignments are not spaced out, and I am finding myself working very late to finish everything in time. For example, right now just in one class, I have one slideshow, a video assignment, and a project due all by the end of the week. There are many kids in my classes that are a disruption and make it harder to learn, but the teachers don't do anything about them. There are so many shortcomings in this school I lost count freshman year.

I no longer go here. However, in the two years that I did go here, I found the school to be mostly enjoyable. The academics are above-average. There are a wide range of classes to take, and 12 APs ranking from Government to Music Theory to Calc AB. There aren't many honors or AP classes you can take as an underclassmen, there are still a few options. There are also many interesting electives, like Sports and Entertainment Marketing, Computer Science, Sports Science, and American Indian Studies. There are many clubs and activities, the only one I can think of they don't have that would be nice is a debate team. But there's student council, speech, math league, robotics, and more. The students here represent their school like no other. Most of the sports at HHS have a winning tradition, like the girls swimming, football, girls basketball, and boys track and field. People stay in Hutch even after college, and they've built a tradition here. It sure is a great place.
There are very few teachers who are clearly putting effort into their work and are kind to their students. Others bully students and do not care whether they understand what they're being taught. The school and its staff have a facade of safety; bullying is rampid and their bullying policies are nonsense and never reinforced. I have seen teachers who help disabled students yell at the students and say things that would be considered verbally abusive. Principal encourages students (typically those who are not athletic and with poor grades, the opposite of favored students) to drop out and drop out rates have increased in this school. The few teachers who are kind and warm-hearted are the ones holding this school up by a string along with its football team.
