What can we do to make this page more encyclopedic?
I removed the specific information about school traditions. It doesn't strike me as "encyclopedia worthy" I think it's enough to just mention these events. Bmackenty (talk) 14:22, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
There seems to be very opinionated information in the Senior Walkout section. Somebody with better knowledge of this event should revise the section. apricot50 11:36, 16 January 2012
I'd like to remove school culture. Again, how are hang-outs worthy of an encyclopedia entry? Maybe we could keep this section in if we included a lot more information about our culture, and cited it? Please comment. Bmackenty (talk) 14:15, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
- Hearing no objections, I've removed school culture. I'd be happy to discuss this edit. Bmackenty (talk) 13:17, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
- Ok. I added some references to the sports section, and removed some stuff I couldn't find references for. Here's the big question: championships. Should we have such detailed information, or just list the teams? Bmackenty (talk) 16:05, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
discussion about Wall Street Journal ranking
Hello user 188.8.131.52. Before you make statements like "(This is NOT what the WSJ rankings say, and those rankings are meaningless anyway. So what if everyone went to Yale and Brown from a school? What do they teach you there?!)"
It is wholly inappropriate for you to make changes and edits to our page without discussing them first. I welcome questions, debate, and a frank exchange of ideas. However, for you to make these changes without any conversation isn't very good wiki-citizenship. :-)
Let's take a look at this, shall we?
The first source is from: http://webreprints.djreprints.com/wsj_tuition_040104.pdf
This source seems to be confirm the statement that HCHS sends a high proportion of students to the ivy league.
The second source is http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/info-COLLEGE0711-sort.html
new principal and notice
Dr. Coppola announced her resignation at a faculty meeting last week. Dr. Fisher will be the acting replacement. I am leaving the employ of the campus schools, and will take a less active role in maintaining this page. I welcome other people in the HCHS community to become an editor!

I added several Senior Mascots to this section of the page, particularly in the '60s and '70s, based on what I could piece together from the Alumni Facebook group. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:18, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Student Body Diversity
According to numerous reliable media sources (for example: 1 2 3) it appears that Avril Danica Haines, class of 1987, is about to become the first woman to be Deputy Director of the CIA. —Mark Dominus (talk) 20:15, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Some of the alumni -- who don't have wp articles, and don't have independent reliable source refs -- need supporting independent reliable source refs (at minimum), or they are subject to deletion. --Epeefleche (talk) 09:14, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
