What I liked about Hoggard was the fact that teachers and counselors were willing to help you whenever you had a problem. They were usually always there to guide you through it and to make sure you understand everything you need to know. There would usually be constant fights everywhere, more than other schools may have. The only thing I hate about the system is class availability and scheduling problems. Almost always mine and everyone else's schedules are messed up in some way, whether it be holes in schedules or just wrong order of classes, and we would have to come in early before the start of school to get it fixed, which usually ends up being the case of your top choices of classes being either full or not having space to take them. The fact that the one class I wished to take my junior year wasn't available to me made me pretty mad because now I have to add that to the pile of other hard classes I have planned for my senior year.

The academic push is what I greatly appreciate about John T. Hoggard High School. The teachers work along side with each student and push to see us succeed. The Scheduling is a four block per semester type of year which I prefer, but it makes it very challenging when AP test come around in May. The school spirit pumps every student up before a football game which encourages us all to go!

There are only a handful of teachers in the entire school that actually push and challenge their students. The rest just don't really work hard and do the bare minimum required to move the class along. Personally, I've found that I am more successful in classes where the teacher teaches the lesson using old-school whiteboard notes and a lecture than in classes where the teacher just drones on reading off of a PowerPoint. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority will use the latter style at Hoggard. Be it a good thing or a bad thing, get ready to teach yourself entire courses during the semester if you want to get high marks in the classes. On a different note, the CTE teachers are amazing and really do an upstanding job. I remember more from Horticulture two years ago than Pre-cal one year ago. They use a very hands-on approach for teaching skills that students will never forget. In Horticulture, we spent most of the time out in the fields and the greenhouse digging up plants and taking cuttings instead of just reading about it in a book. I have taken two semesters of Horticulture and two semesters of Drafting, but I have learned an exceptional amount from both. All in all, it is very unfortunate that the hard work of the few exceptional teachers has to be brought down by the mediocre many. Coming from a private, Christian middle school, I can simply say from observation and experience that pretty much none of my teachers at Hoggard even hold a candle to my middle school teachers. My middle school teachers got paid approximately one-third what these public school teachers get paid and did three times better of a job. It is very unfortunate that the public education is paying so much for poor-quality employees. If you are like me coming from a private middle school, Hoggard is going to be a massive shock not only culturally, but also academically.
