If it wasn't for this school, I wouldn't have succeeded in life. I've never had teachers so selfless before in my life. These people will do anything in their power to help you.

I still have fond memories of this school, I had an awesome experience with the staff and students hehe I sometimes even wish I could go back but I know that the students now and in the future would be proud of this school.they help you when you feel you've lost all hope of becoming better , yeah they might not be perfect but they sure do come close. I sincerely can say I love this school still to this day .:)
There are no words that can explain how grateful I am to every staff member that knows how to communicate and work with their students. Amazing school.
This school has the absolute best teachers in the world. The kind who care who want you to learn and who will help you every step of the way. This school may not be fancy like newer schools but at those schools you never learn at hidden lake they actually believe in you 110% Go Hidden Lake High School
I graduated with the help of these amazing staff members thanks hidden lake crew!! :) I couldn't have done it without you all <3
This school changed my daughter for the better. She was having so much trouble and then we found HLHS. She has become an exceptional student, including her attendance. And I'm proud to announce if all goes as planned, she will be graduating this year, 1 year ahead of schedule. Thanks for everything HLHS.
I couldn't have graduated without the help of the teachers. So thankful for them.

Service Learning at HLHS
Service learning and community engagement & sensitivity are important cornerstones at Hidden Lake High School. Student Council members, with their coordinator Loretta Vigil, spent some time after school creating holiday giftbaskets to share with less fortunate members of the Westminster community. Council member Nikki said the experience "was something good to do for the community - a way to give back."
Winter Break is December 19 through January 3. Students return to school on January 4. We wish all of our HLHS and WVA students and their families a happy and festive holiday season.
Parent Engagement Night
HLHS will host a Parent Engagement for all Discovery students and their parents on Dec. 14 at 6pm. To be discussed are practices students learn while in Discovery, sharing the "6 P's" and "Adult Mode" practices; speaking about college prep, FAFSA and Individual Career and Academic Planning (ICAP). We look forward to seeing you there!
Sharing Our Bounty - HLHS Students share Thanksgiving with Homeless
HLHS students, who witnessed a bounty of food for the annual Thanksgiving potluck, elected to serve turkey, stuffing, mashed potates and more to local homeless people on Friday, November 18. After the student body finished their meal, student council members noticed how much food remained. Instead of taking it home or throwing it away, the decision was made to make up plates and deliver them to people down on their luck who gather near the school, accompanied by student council coordinator Mark Belnay.
Student Artwork Selected for 2016 CASB
Hidden Lake HS 11th grade student Rebeca Ramirez Martinez's artwork, "Mandala wiht a Hummingbird" was one of three student artwork pieces selected to be on display at the 2016 Colorado Association of School Boards Convention at the Broadmoor Hotel in December. Congratulations, Rebecca!
HLHS has hosted a number of Parent Engagement Nights, and parents have been kind enough to complete surveys.
"Thank you for allowing my daughter to be a part of such a wonderful school. Filled with wonderful role models. The 6 P's is a key part of education that this school is teaching and is very important in an adolescent's life. Thank you!"
"I could already see a difference in my son."
"I am very pleased with (student's) progress so far. He is always saying how much he likes this school and staff."
"Thank you. Appreciate your time and effort in educating my child."
