    I have a 9th grader in this school & I believe they get more credit than they deserve. Upon enrolling my child I thought this was the best choice. Now I see some of the teachers there are (my opinion) too old to be dealing with teens cannot control the kids & do not show concern. Its as thought the school doesnt care if you pass or fail & Im disgusted with this school..

    Very good school. Principal is excellent. Social worker is very competent and aware of students with special needs and always helpful. This school takes an interest in my child and his success this 1st yr is a direct reflection of the staff.

    This is my son's second year at HSAC and I'm so pleased.The entire staff show concern and caring for the student's.Something I did not expect at a public school.I wish my son had attended his whole four years of high school there.

    Well this is a great school where teachers are always there for you and where you could get to know other students better.They have great programs and a great way of teaching but because of the space we don't have much sports which everyone would like some more sports like swimming bowling and much more.They inform our parents about us all the time and keep in contact with them in case we want to cut or something a like.I really love being a student of the HSAC.

    I like the fact that parents are called if child is absent however my daughter completing 9th grade at this school was full of trials and tribulations!

    This school is just amazing. Simply amazing. I'm so impressed by the teachers and the way they connect with the students. My daughter loves this school. It's exactly what you expect from a good school. The principal knows every student by name and is very connected with the school. The teachers know what they are doing and make the classes so much fun. As a parent I love hsac.

    I'm a freshman at this school and before I went here I was doubtful. But ever since the first day of school I'm in absolute love with the school. The teachers make the classes so much fun and there's not one class that i don't like or like the teacher. The classes are fun and the teachers actually know what they're are talking about. Everyone is really nice too. Both students and teachers. I think you'd really love the school if you went here except for if you mind uniforms.
