Open Quote Just because we have high test scores does not make this a good school. A good school has a good atmosphere and teaching philosophy, both of which are lacking here. This, coming from a student who excelled academically and in extracurriculars. While you will meet a more mature group of students here, the prevalence of snarky and inadequate teachers makes HCHS just like any other school. In the recent years, the administration has grown especially intolerable, with the new principal who shows passive aggressive favoritism. The amount of busy work (especially in Anatomy and Physiology) is ridiculous, but probably on par with other area high schools. While the other comment talks about bonding over studying, competition is fierce and the vast majority of conversations center around lack of sleep or gpa. Not a healthy environment, imo.

A few great teachers (latin teachers, some freshman teachers, a few medical course teachers).

In short, nothing special, probably more complaining students on average, no sports team, and a falsely inflated sense of elitism. Close Quote

Open Quote I'm only a Freshman (or Fish...) , but I'm already attached to this "nerd" school, and am proud to be a "nerd" :) ! At this school, nerd is a teasing compliment, and there is good peer pressure (for example: friends remind and urge each other to do homework, study, etc.) . On days of big tests, my friends and I also make big study groups at lunch. Lastly, I believe that this school is already preparing me for college, as well as the work field, and not just preparing me for tests and such. Most of the teachers are very good, and the Latin program is amazing as well! An altogether awesome school! 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.
