If you're looking for academics, theater or speech/debate, go with HHS. If you're looking for athletics or animal husbandry, go with CMHS.

I graduated from CMHS in 2009 & my sister is currently a freshman there. I loved the school; I was a cheerleader all four years and liked the way teachers wanted to help anyway they could. They school principle is very strict and doesn't let too much of anything get past him or his staff. My sister even refers to him as "Hitler" now because he is so strict. As far as academics and sports, Cabell Midland has always been ahead. Huntington High is a good school but does have a higher drop out rate and lower test scores. My younger cousin went there half of her freshman year until her parents transfered her to CMHS so her higher test scores could be recognized and she could be in higher, more challenging classes. Mostly, CMHS has a bigger spending budget then HHS does which allows for better classes and athletics. HHS also has a more diverse ethnicity of students then CMHS does. I have close friends that went to HHS and they liked it but some wish they would have went to CMHS just for the better sports and academics they offer. I hope this helps!!

Personally i would choose cabell midland, They have a higher test scores. The teachers there actually teach the students. i know hhs kids and they even admit they are not taught most of the time.. they are allowed to have cell phones out in class which distracts students from learning.
also huntington high has alot of violence and drugs.
for your childs best interest choose cabell midland

Cabell midland. Legit. The academics are great, test scores are higher, there are more classes to choose from, and an excellent music/athletic department.

Really? Kanawha County? Look at how they treated Pete Corbette who was a vice principal at GW and tell me they are less dysfunctional than Cabell.

I would not give advice on which school is better. I would say you should do your own research and not rely on topix trolls.

Look at GW test scores compared to Midland. The politics behind the school board and staff in all of these schools are going to be corrupt.

If I was you I wouldn't take a child of mine to Midland ever again. If you don't have money and don't suck up to the teachers and coaches your child will never get anywhere in that school. The kids are a number and that is it. There is a few teachers that are good there but far in between. When you call the school you never get to talk to anybody it is always the answering machine. I am still waiting on a call that was placed 2 weeks ago and still no return call and that is after 5 messages left. They have a lot to offer kids I do give them that but if your child is into sports forget it unless you are the coach or are related to the coach or you suck up to them. Your child will never go no where as far at scholarships go unless you do all the leg work for them.

Cabell Midland High School

Go to another school or apply to be a volunteer so you can sit in your childs classes with them and pretend to be helping a child write notes and that way you can get all the answers for your childs test and make sure they pass.

I don't think any Parent, Cousin, Aunt, Uncle or Grandparent should be involved in any activities that one of your realitives is in because that is just making sure that child is going to paticipate no matter if they are good or not because our relative is the teacher or coach.

I went to hhs. Midland is much better. My gfs lil sister was honor roll student at midland then transferred. She failed every six weeks since then and now is being held back. Midland doesn't have the druggie crowd ( ever school has 1 but seems there's isn't as big or violent). Basically it boils down to your kid goin to school with good ol country boys and a few morons or a bunch of thugs and wannabes.

I STRONGLY recommend you avoid both of those schools and send your daughter to St. Joe HS. Yes, it is a private school, but it doesn't have the problems of bullying/violence, drugs, or pregnancies like the two public high schools. Generally most of the disciplinarian issues at St. Joe are uniform (kids wear uniforms at St. Joe) violations.

We can tell from your post that CMHS is doing an excellent job teaching spelling (their academics, not there) and grammar (ever hear of a run on sentence?)
