    I attended Havelock high in my senior year in 2012. I just want to bring everything from this school to my old high school. I wish I attended Havelock for all my education. I'm proud to say I graduated from Havelock how can I bring this education process to my old high school? This is exactly what my old school needs!

    Havelock High School has been an excellent high school for all 3 of my now graduated children. My children are young adults now; they are all successful and loved attending this high school. Two of them were awarded scholarships to the colleges of their choice the other an honor graduate in the United States Air Force. This high school gave each an excellent education and so much direction and fun through excellent programs in band sports and guard in addition to their academic classes. I could recommend more a wonderful place to raise kids and give a great start to youth than Havelock and its schools including Havelock high school.

    I am a Havelock High alumni and I graduated as valedictorian of my class. HHS was a great high school; the teachers and faculty were and are supportive inspiring and dedicated to their students. Many of them are still mentors to me that I feel I can always count on and I will always have a home there. The band program is excellent; most of my favorite high school memories were made there.

    Worst school ever. The majority of the teachers/faculty all act like they are in some sort of hierarchy. Staff treats students like toddlers but expects them to be adults. In my four years of high school here 2 out of 32 teachers (4 classes per semester) actually wanted to teach and enjoyed it. All the others hated their job and hated the students. I was constantly harassed over absences in which they wanted to suspend me? Because that makes sense. Ended up dropping out my senior year and enrolling in the community college to get my High school diploma (NOT GED!). Ended up blowing through that with straight A's and received my diploma 6 months before the school year was up. Overall this school is just horrible. If they could start worrying about teaching their students and not about which administrators have the most power than they would be fine.

    Great school. Wonderful athletics honors courses are extremely well taught. Above and below average students receive all the attention they could possibly need. The HPAC is the pride and joy of this school they take wonderful care and host many great local shows.

    Havelock High School is an excellent school with an exceptional faculty and staff. My daughter recently graduated from Havelock High School with all honors. We are very proud of her efforts there and the staff and faculty were wonderful to work with. The Performing Arts Center is a building of pride on the campus. Havelock High School is proof positive that if your child is willing to work hard he/she will be rewarded for his/her efforts. KUDOS HHS!
