Hays is a high school of high spirits and has many amazing things happening for them. I love how involved a lot of students are with the school, in sports, in clubs, and in other things.
Personally, Hays High school is a great school compared to the other schools in our district. I would say the best part of my experience at Hays is the football games due to the great facility we have as well as our culture at football games. A negative experience is the constant vaping and fire alarms. Although it hasn’t happened as much this year it was terrible the years before.
Graduate of 2023, for all the 4 years I’ve been in this school I really didn’t like it. Sometimes they forced us to go to pep rallies when some students clearly didn’t want to. Honestly the only place I’ll miss is the library during lunch time bc I get to chill with my friend. (+ I loved the books I got there). Also my brother dropped out of this school on his junior year bc the school didn’t help him with his struggles. Don’t trust the counselors lol, they really don’t help you at all and when you tell them your problems they will most likely tell your parents about it, they don’t keep it private 💀. Hey at least the senior trip (six flags) was fire 🔥 . Anyways, if anyone who is going to this school or are currently a student in this school, we’ll, I wish some you good luck 😭 .
Hays High school is a good school. However, they have their priorities mixed up. They preach that they try to provide the education necessary to make their students succeed in the lives ahead of them. If this is the goal of the school, they are carrying it out in a very weird way. Now, the teachers are not horrible, they just don't seem to care whether the students are actually learning or not. Everything is based on memorization. The only classes that seem to actually teach you are the extracurriculars or specific AP classes. Even some teachers have admitted this, revealing that everyone sees the problem, but nobody is willing to fix it. I would appreciate for the future generation of kids that all schools, not just mine, change the way they are "teaching" kids. School should not be a memorizing game. It should be learning and understanding the world around us and how we are going to take care of ourselves in the future.
My favorite part of his high school last year when I was in freshman was band. I had a great time and making memories with my friends that are in band. I even got to attend the a graduation for the seniors. My favorite part of band was solo and ensemble, I got to see my former private lesson teacher and former band teacher and I also got a 1 on my solo and got a medal.
My experience at hays is really will the teachers are really helpful and have a after school tutorials and if any help needed in class. The counselors and the staff make sure your on track to graduate and have the class you want and need, and else then the grades and school they really care about the students mental health and drug use we all have announcements about that and how bad it and the clubs and after school activities are so much fun and would rat it every highly of the school and staff
I've had an overall positive experience. Most teachers are nice and you can have a good relationship with them.
What I like about Jack C. Hays High school in the socially diverse people in the school. I am currently in Band, FFA, National Honor Society, and National Technical Honor Society. This allows me to meet and develop relationships with my peers.
It is a good school, some teachers are bad, and the dress code is strict, but otherwise not bad. I have been going here for 4 years and I am very happy to leave and move on. You would think that high school should repair you for life after high school but it just prepares you to pass state tests
The 4 years have been very helpful for realizing the career path I want to take. During the beginning required graduation classes are offered, so that students can complete graduation requirements and focus on career classes. There is a wide variety of career paths, and staff that can help, teach and prepare you for those careers.
All schools have their problems but i have felt welcome and happy at hays. my education will carry into college, and my electives were the most fun. Its a class A school that is quick to help you feel comfortable as a senior or a freshman.
Teachers are good at what they do and nice, lots of extracurriculars to choose from so you won't get bored.
I really like my peers here at Hays Highschool and I get along with my teachers very well. I would like to see more school spirit here because since Covid-19 I feel as though our school spirit has declined.
A really good environment with great teachers. Not the nicest school but a very fun school that will give a good education.
Overall hays high school was really great for me, I was able to graduate early with the help of my teachers and counselors. They helped be get the materials I needed to be successful. I think with covid hitting this 2022 school year coming back was very difficult on not only students but also teachers and I wish there would have been more support for students.
There are lots of opportunities that are not utilized by the student body due to an overall lack of ambition amongst the student body, but those who decide to go for these things excell. We have a student go to an ivy league at least once every two years.
I had a great time being a student at Jack C. Hays . I loved my classes, teachers, peers, and administration and would not have asked for a better experience than what i did have.
