William Amos Hough High Ratings & Reviews

January 09, 2018 Submitted by a parent
I do not understand how this school has such high ratings. The majority of the teachers are apathetic. They do not teach! They test students on information not given to the students. This is the consensus of many students. This is my daughter's first year after transferring from a small private school to experience a bigger environment. She is a junior and takes AP and honors classes. With the exception of one or two all of the teachers have been horrible. Talking to her guidance counselor did no good. We can wait to pull her out of Hough. I absolutely do no recommend this school.

I cannot stand Hough. The principal is rude and condescending. The counselors are difficult to reach, and do not disseminate information to all of the students regarding items such as college visits, scholarships or SAT/ACT prep. The administration doesn't care about what the students think or feel, only what the teachers say. It is so overcrowded you literally feel like cattle walking through the halls, with your chest in the backpack of the person in front of you, and someone's chest up in yours. It is extremely clique-y and difficult for new or transfer students to make friends. They start ten minutes earlier in the morning to supposedly make up for snow days or something, but that just creates an earlier morning for the students. Side note, there is not enough student parking. Who builds a school where the students from affluent neighborhoods are attending and doesn't expect all of them to have their own cars?

I love Hough! I have a rising Junior and unlike some of the parents on this page, I appreciate the anxiety, stress and struggle the teachers give my son. He's learning life tools and this will better prepare him for college. I enjoy his teachers and faculty.

My family moved to NC in June 2016 and so far Hough High School has been a disappointment. My husband and I moved mountains so that our girls (16 & 13) could attend Hough High and Bailey Middle. I was a bit concerned at the enrollment process for students coming in from the outside, but I had heard such great things that I didn't want to jump to any conclusions. Now that we have been baptized by fire I feel completely confident that my concerns in the beginning were justified. Hough High has a wonderful website; however, the staff falls back on it so much that it's being used as an excuse not to develop relationships with the students and parents. Very little effort is given to helping students adjust to their new environment. It's the throw them in to see if they sink or swim method. I keep hearing that the teachers are trying to prepare the students for college, but what we are experiencing is stressed teachers lashing out if the students don't understand classroom instruction the first, and typically only time they are spoken. In some cases the instructions are incorrect or critical points are left out and when it's brought to their attention the students are mocked for "not knowing" the "other way" of finding links and study guides on the teachers website. The school may be attempting to prepare its students for college but they forget that the students ARE IN HIGH SCHOOL..... Pushing a 16 year old kid to the point of daily anxiety and fear of asking a question is not preparing them for anything except the expectation that they are going to hate college as much as they hate school. Our experience has been that unless you enter this school district in 5th grade don't bother because you and your children will ultimately be treated as an inconvenience when you need assistance. It would benefit the school and it's students to develop a program that provides tools to assist families coming into the district after 5th grade.This area has been expanding and growing for the past three years but the school hasn't kept up with the growth which is shining a negative light on its reputation and its staff.
