School Mission
At Huntsville High School, we believe that education should help students develop their potential as contributing members of society who approach their future with a positive life-long attitude toward learning. The intellectual, cultural, environmental, athletic, and social experiences in education must encourage tolerance and self-esteem, while fostering the development of skills necessary for growth in an ever-changing world.
