my experience with Hueytown hasn't been the best. i mean in the first couple of years it was great u met new people and everybody was nice and kind to you. Now Hueytown is kinda going downhill. In the schools there is alot of bullying and harassment that goes on. Teachers try their hardest to teach but i know a couple that could really care less on how the students learn! this one particular teacher said "i really didn't wanna be a teacher, i honestly wanna become a photographer" i mean their isn't anything wrong with them wanting to be a photographer just the way they acted as if they hated their job! Anyways that's my review on Hueytown.

Since I’ve live here the schools are okay I guess but there is a lot of kids who are just bad and just don’t care about school and cause a distraction to other kids learning time cause the teacher has to deal with them and there’s some fun stuff to do here if u find it but not really. To find something really you’d have to go to like Hoover or somewhere else where. However, Hueytown is a small town so there’s not much stuff here and it’s ok to live in and it’s quite here. Nothing interesting or much crimes happen, unless it’s shoplifting or something small.
Hueytown was home to one of the dominant racing groups in NASCAR, the Alabama Gang. The city's main thoroughfare, Allison-Bonnett Memorial Drive, takes its name from drivers Bobby Allison, Donnie Allison, Davey Allison, Clifford Allison, and Neil Bonnett.I like the schools, and great jobs. I feel safe and its still growing.
