Open Quote This is a great school where kids are allowed to be themselves. Kids come to HHS from many other schools around the city where they did not "fit" and here they thrive. Test scores don't tell the whole story, particularly because we have a high rate of opt-outs at our school. We have had leadership turn-overs, but now (in 2017) we have a great new principal and we are back on track. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
