This is school is what you would call "hood" or whatever,but Huntington provides academic success for all students. This school may have some bad children and I know that our rates on just about everything is low,but this year,2k14 it's going to change!

Everything about this school is stupid. The staff is lazy, the teachers don't do their job, and the students are bad. I'm surprised this school hasn't been shut down.
