Anyone who is thinking about attending hickory high, please do not. The academic value in this high school is zero. The teachers don't teach properly and students are often left confused. If your children are not familiar with children in hickory, DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE. It's a horrible school for new students. Do consider other schools but over all, this district is not a good school district. Students are generally mean to new students and making genuine good friends is very hard in hickory. There's no other way to put it, don't send your child here.
