We will offer some new courses (in person) at HHS beginning fall 2020.  If you are interested in taking one of these courses, please email your counselor.

  • Art History taught by Lindsay Wells. The course will consist of class discussions, investigation of artworks, art criticism, and art production. Students will explore the history of art, make connections to other disciplines and current events, while gaining an understanding of the artists’ ideas and intentions.Students will learn to develop their skill in analyzing works of art including paintings, drawings, sculpture, architecture, ceramics, photography, printmaking, and fibers. An emphasis will be put on learning works of art through context, styles, and meaning to determine century, culture, and artist. 

  • Current Issues taught by Taylor Cloyd.  What's going on in the world today of social, technological, economic or political interest?  Learn and explore with Ms. Cloyd.

  • Leadership in Social Justice taught by Jason Carter and E.K. Slaughter. Our fall Leadership class will shift this year to focus on social justice issues at HHS, in our community, in our nation and in the world.  Leadership is relationship.  In this class we will cover two things.  First we will dive deep into relationships and define what a healthy productive relationship with others looks like.  We will also cover personal skills, public speaking, and leadership strategies.  Second we will explore a variety of social justice issues that are present in our country and our world.  In each of these issues we will discuss how failed relationships created them and how restored relationships can correct them.  The intent of this class is for students to leave with greater knowledge of how to conduct themselves in healthy relationships, increased leadership skills, increased organizational skills, better emotional awareness, and increased knowledge in social justice issues facing our world today. 

Also, new this year the Dramatic Writing course will count as a required English course in place of Senior English (British Literature).  If you would like to request one of these classes, please email your counselor.
