  • As a junior who attends HHS, I can honestly say that Hayward High has to be the best public school in the Hayward school system. Students are generally friendly and the large campus exposes students to a college campus experience. There are also a lot of new and exciting clubs thriving in this school as well as a need for participation in athletics. All needs to do to stay happy in this school is to remain active in the curriculum presented and they will be just fine.

  • My daughter transferred as a 2nd semester Junior. She transferred from a private school as a 3.8 student looking to take honors courses. When she was able to receive the courses they were fine, however the honors English teacher, has to this day never returned assignments timely to gain valuable feedback or information in which to better understand concepts and take advantage of the learning around the assignment. She is young and not yet certified, but responsible for honors students on their way to college. On the other hand, her speech & debate teacher was excellent and challenged their opinions, views and was very fair. There are several qualified individuals teaching at the school, but others seem to be worn down and on edge. I have two daughters not yet in high school and while I live up the hill from the school, Hayward High will not be an option for them. I will look for better alternatives. I will say that there seems to be more focus on kids meeting mediocre standards. Many of the teachers and administrators don't return calls, and your best bet for communication is just to show up and wait for them. Good Luck
