15 Parent Reviews for Hickory High School

As a parent of two students who have gone through Hickory High School, I am saddened to say that I am very disappointed with the education that my second child has received. It's as if some of the teachers there do not care whether the students understand the material or not. The state needs to review ...  Read more

The administration does not care about its students unless they are basketball or football players or unless the have money. I was bullied non stop and they would listen and when they finally did and expelled the kid but the moment they found out I was gonna transfer they quickly decided to let him back. ...  Read more

Excellent teachers will only be found in the honors classes - the new principal seems to only be after his "personal" agenda. The students never see him at school. Leadership seems to magnify the students with minor homework/dress issues and overlook drugs and bullies. Academic programs and clubs ...  Read more

I am a parent and former employee of this school. Hickory High School has all the same issues as any modern day high school in America. The fault, however, does not lie within the adminstration but with the ability of the parents to control their own children. The administration tries as hard as it ...  Read more

I really think this school is a big joke. It may look like a good school but once your actually going to it you find out how bad it is. Some of the teachers dont even take attendence. The kids will sit in class and talk about sex, drugs etc. and the teachers wont say anything too them. There are a few ...  Read more
