This is our first year at HRHS and we couldn't be more pleased. The principal is top notch and very creative, even in tough economic times.

Our daughter likes this school and transferred into it. Feels safe there. Particularly likes the science department and AP English classes. She also likes the fact that the students are more diverse than other schools in the area. The weakness we would give this school is in the math dept.

This school has an excellent focus on broad educational experiences with opportunities for specialized areas of interest applications when needed or requested. It is one of the last schools to understand the need for Arts/Music in addition to sports offerings. Teachers at school extremely motivated ...  Read more
