Hutchison really has something for everyone. With specialized career clusters, students can try their hand at various different career options. Running the gamut from welding to graphic design, there is a wide variety of classes so everyone can find something they love. Hutchison staff truly cares about their students and wants to see them succeed, and its evident with everything they do. I would recommend any student who wants to get ahead of the game either before going on to college or a trade to come to Hutch, you'll be glad you did.
I like the other students in my graduating class that went there, however two of them left this world this year. The administration in the FNSBSD needs to be cleaned up, but the school itself is alright. I would really like to see a change in the school, such as getting rid of bad teachers when it is common knowledge that they are out of control. For example, there is a teacher that teaches a senior class that seniors must pass in order to graduate, and that teacher breaks his code of ethics by ridiculing and causing unnecessary embarrassment and disparagement to the students. I would like to see a system set into place that puts more emphasis on helping the students, instead of covering up the teachers.
