  • There are some wonderful teachers at HCHS but there are also some sorry ones. Priorities are screwed up and the principals do not do anything to change it. I have heard horror stories from kids in my church and they don't like the way the school is handled. it is sad when kids don't have any respect for their school. If I had a child at the high school level, they would be at Bremen or another place that prepares them for college. Mine is in 4th grade and we are already talking about paying tuition for Bremen when he gets to the middle school level. It is expensive, but I don't want him to go through the things that I've heard about. I think the school system does a good job at the elementary level but the middle school and especially the high school is not focused on education. It won't change until parents decide to care about what's going on and let them know that they are not happy with the school before it will change.

  • I went to this school and I can honestly say that they never really taught me anything about college or job searching and those are the most important things you can learn while graduating from High School. Some of the Teachers were great thoughs

  • Haralson County High School should be a very well respected school. It taught me many things, and I am excelling in college because of it. I am sure many would agree that HC prepared us for college. I loved Haralson County. That school is very near and dear to me. All the staff members are very nice, and definitely care about their students. I will be sending my children to Haralson County.

  • Haralson County High School has the potential to be one of the best schools in this district. Unfortunately, it is a school that supports cliques, discrimation both ethnically and academically. If you are not an involved parent and you have a student with special needs. That student could easily fall through the cracks. I intend to fight for my child's right to receive everything required in her IEP.
    I took my child out of HCHS because of academic and safety concerns. I intend to urge the school system to live up to the responsibility of educationing strong young people that will become assets in this community.

  • The school system is a clique. You are either in or out. Most people move in disgust.

  • From what I've heard, the teachers are more concerned with their student's education than they are with their paychecks. That's more than what I can say for my school now.

  • I don't go to the High school, but I went to HCMS and the people there were okay. I mean, a dog biscuit probably would have gotten better test scores.
