  • I am currently attending Hesperia High and I am in love with this school. I honestly wouldn't want to attend any other besides HHS. I am a true scorpion at heart. We have an amazing Renaissance program and our drama department is at tip-top shape. Our teachers/staff are the greatest. You can turn to any teacher/proctor/administrator/custodian and have a real conversation with them because they actually care. I'm proud to say that I bleed black and gold. :)

  • Dear Mr. McKinney,
    As a retired teacher I have attended many graduation ceremonies. I am sure that the speeches given by your top students last night do not reflect the high standards that you strive for in your district. I certainly was not inspired and was very disappointed. I do not blame you, but would suggest that principal preview such important speeches that reflect on the entire district.
    Sincerely,
    Gary Hakala

  • Great school. Great teachers, especially Surojeet Chatterji. I have a one on one aid named Ellen Sowersby. I am having a great time and am still a freshman. For my semester grades I got all A's. All in all, this is such a great school that I recomend it to many students who are in middle school or Jr. High.
