I highly recommend Cabell Midland. My children attended both schools and I agree with the poster that stated HHS has a bad environment from staff to students. I have also wondered if anyone there actually likes their jobs. The sports kids get all the help and attention. If you're not athletic and/or rich good luck trying to get adequate help at HHS.

Though private, St Joe is also a very nice school. There is also another private school but I cant remember the name.

Exactly, 4th child in HHS now, try to act like their standards are so high, but all is waived for their athletic hopefuls. Insulting to others, who are not, and must work and follow rules.

If CMHS is so much better than HHS why does HHS have 5 National Merit semi finalists. HHS is definitely the better academic school but let's allow the racist mindset to prevail. Look at the record and not the opinions of those who don't know any better.

Congrats that 5 students out of 1600 have reached that achievement. Check out WesTest scores, graduation rates, discipline problems, all public information that is easy to look up online. The numbers don't lie and are not just someone's opinion. Midland is by far the better school academically. And what does race have to do with anything???? That's always the talking point HHS people go to when it is pointed out that it is an inferior school.

Also had another Yeager Scholar this year. How about Midland. Keep living in your dream world. HHS always out shines Midland. Keep your illiterate inbreds at Midland.

Sadly you are the one living in a dream world. As I said before, all the data from the state is readily available online and shows which school is superior. I am happy for the kids at HHS that succeed and get prestigious scholarships. The fact they are able to do that in spite of the atmosphere there is truly admirable. And honestly, resorting to childish name calling truly shows your level of intelligence.

Comparing test scores from the two schools is like comparing apples and oranges. You must take into account socioeconomic status and all other factors. Take the top HHS students and they blow Midland's away. Just look at top scholars from both schools. HHS is at the top statewide

It is pointless trying to discuss this with you since you obviously don't live in reality. Sorry to break it to you but test scores, graduation rates, etc. is how schools are measured. If you can show me some date proving your point I will believe you, otherwise not.

Honestly, I don't know where you are getting your info. Since you won't provide any proof of your claims, I am assuming you are making it up. Check out the links below. HHS is the school not meeting AYP. Also, the program for "at risk" students at Midland has about 150 students. HHS has 500 students in the same program despite having roughly 300 less students than Midland. Check out the links below. It is really informative and could be an eye opener. Unless you can provide data proving the claims you keep making I am finished trying to discuss this topic with you.

Like I said wait until at risk schools information is out and you will be shocked. Guarantee you will disappear up the nearest holler and say it is all lies.

You truly don't have a clue what "at risk" means. That is the terminology used to identify schools with a high number of students living in poverty who would be considered likely to drop out or not finish school. Schools receive Title I funding to help reduce that risk. Once again, you cant provide any actual data to back up your claims. And for your information, I don't live in a "holler." Again, your use of childish stereotypes shows your level of intelligence.

Look at the kids from HHS getting the scholarships..probably all popular sports kids. those are the only students any of the staff ever seem to want to help or put effort forth for and plus they get special benefits and treatment other students do not. its probably that way at all high schools though
