Two minutes at: Huron High School

Editor’s Note: This is one in a series of two-minute videos offering a quick glimpse into one of AAPS’ 32 schools. At AAPS, our vision is Every Child. Every Day. Every one fully sees, values, and celebrates each child for exactly who they are, the gifts and strengths they bring to this world.

Huron High School is home to 1561 proud River Rats—a student-chosen moniker reflecting the school’s location near the banks of the Huron River.

The school opened in 1969 to relieve overcrowded conditions at Pioneer. While it was under construction in 1968, the student body at Pioneer was split into morning and afternoon shifts until Huron opened. Twenty years later, an extensive expansion created additional space, particularly for music, science, math, and athletics.

Huron High School is authorized as a World School by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP), and Career-related Programme (CP). IB at Huron is part of all four years, grades 9 – 12. The Diploma Programme (DP) for grades 11 and 12 offers 27 DP course options while the Career-related Programme (CP) for grades 11 and 12 offers several career-related study pathways including automotive technology, business, cosmetology, engineering, and homebuilding.
