    Overall Experience: The students run the school, so it is like going to a party everyday. You never know what insane thing is going to happen next.

    Food: The school cafeteria makes pizza everyday, and throughout the course of the year the quality of the pizza decreases. Sometimes it is not cooked completely and is chewing in the middle. Also, they offer no gluten free/vegetarian options daily.

    Administration & Policies: The dress code at HAHS is gender bias, boys can have holes in their jeans, but girls cannot. The guidance counselors are more concerned with scheduling then helping students through rough patches.

    Sports & Fitness: At HAHS the school spirit is lacking, students attend sporting events, but mostly just sit on their phones. There is no cheering for the team. The 'student section' lacks enthusiasm and excitement.

    • 3
    Teachers: Most of the teachers at HAHS are not engaging, and the students control the classrooms. Teachers are disconnected from the class, and don't teach material that is useful after graduation. They teach the state requirements, but do not show the real life situations in which this information is useful.
