    Overall Experience: Hoggard is by far the best school in the area. I enjoy being surrounded by my fellow students, as well as the faculty and staff there. The academics are OUTSTANDING and there is just about any club you can think of. I would not want to go any where else, even if I had the chance to!

    Teachers: I would say the communication levels of Hoggard's teachers vary greatly, but average out to decent. Almost all the teachers I have had are widely available to help me out at any point in time, but we ALL know that one 'below average' teacher. Overall , Hoggard is a great school and I would not want to attend any other high school.

    Academics: There are a lot of challenging courses available such as advanced placement courses. There are also remedial classes for students who do not go as fast paced as others. Teachers are average. You can find some good ones and you can find some bad ones.
