    Hunt High School is an exceptional school. With great leadership and support (from faculty staff and parents) it has provided opportunities for the students to excel to their fullest potential. Not only has the school showed the students how to succeed on their own but how to help others when life throws them curves.

    Principal Simmons has returned Hunt HS to the school of choice. The faculty and students are functioning on a high level of enthuisiasm. It is amazing what happens when the leader of anything listens to the people that work for them. Fair treatment goes along way not to mention his passion to see the students succeed

    With the new principal taking charge this school has turned around! He was an assistant principal while I was there and I'm ecstatic to hear that he's in a higher position. He was always one to be not only fair but also connect with the students on their level. Of course every person has their own opinion and every school has its quirky characters but I loved every year at Hunt. The teachers were always great and many of them are still good friends outside of the building now that I've moved on. They truly care about their students and they're always willing to help or listen when someone comes knocking. Even after years of college education behind me my best teacher by far was here! D

    Since these last reviews were sent in things have drastically changed. We have a new principal now and the staff parent and students absolutely love him. He is respectful and always there to lend a listening ear to anyone who has a problem. He treats everyone as they would want to be treated and people respect him back and love him as a person and an administrator. He is correcting the issues that came about while the last principal was there and things are getting back to the way we as teachers and the students come to know and love in the past.

    School has excellent faculty and staff as well as a wonderfully well managed facility. Students please remember that your personal relationship doesnt warrently a bad review because things dont go the way you expect them to but give honor where honor is due and take pride in your school and help make it a better place for you to learn.....Educator

    Its a good school. The students and teachers get along well. the only thing wrong with this school is the principle. He doesnt know how to give respect but wants respect.

    The school itself is a good school it's the principal that is awful. He is never at school he never listens to any teachers or students on anything he has taken away all of our priveleges and is downright mean. He does not communicate with anyone and is making our school a bad place. He needs to go!Period!
