James Hunt High School Reviews
My experience at Hunt High School was okay. There were teacher who were passionate about teaching and really engaged with their students, however, there were a few bad teachers. The counselors really put in effort to prepare students for college and help them improve their academics. As I graduated, I saw the school improving as they were implementing new programs for the students.
My experience at Hunt High school is very great compared to other High Schools. Hunt offers help in academics and life. Hunt has great counselors who always put you first, and help you with anything you need. Mos of the teachers here are good and explain things in a way that will help and challenge you. My personal favorite thing about Hunt High School is the dance program because no other school around Wilson offers it. The dance program helps with building your technic and endurance as a dancer, which is very important in the dance world, the teacher sometimes even brings in a guest artist to teach us new choreography. The dance program has to be the BEST thing about Hunt High School. The only down side about Hunt is that it's not an ARTs based school, when it should be.
My experiences being at Hunt high school were a challenge. Being there was like being at an amusement park, it was hectic but I wouldn't change it for the world. There was some parts where you wanted to pull your hair out but others where you just laugh so hard you fall on the floor. I believe high school, in general, is like a roller coaster with its ups and downs but it’s so fun you don't want to stop riding. I meet people that held me up and some people that let me fall, it’s all about who you allow in your life and how they affect you. Overall, I had a good experience and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
