    Overall Experience: My overall experience was actually decent. I kept to myself for the most part. But my circle of friends made everyday day at school worth it. As at any school of course you'll have your moments when you hate every faculty and staff member and the principal, then the next minute you don't know what you'll do without them. I had alot of good times there and made plenty good memories

    Teachers: The teachers at Huffman treat you with as much respect as you treat them. They're concerned with whatever you're concerned with. If you're ever struggling in class they are more than willingly to help you in the classroom and outside of it. They give you plenty of chances to make up work and improve your grade also.
