Message from the Principal


Mr. Allen Hargett, Principal

Let me take this opportunity to welcome you to Hayden High School.  On March 31, 2003 the students, teachers and staff of Hayden High School made the long-awaited move from a campus filled with trailers and a building that had been occupied since 1937 into a brand new state of the art facility.  We are very proud of our school and the faculty and staff that enable it to function.  Our students are among the state’s brightest and our test scores and graduation rate attest to that fact.  We want to provide the highest quality education and services possible to all parties involved in the educational process.  We strive diligently to provide programs that meet the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs of all students.  It is our earnest desire to ensure fair and equitable treatment of all students and enhance both our school and community at large.  Hayden High School and its surrounding community are rich in tradition and expect the highest standards from its students and staff.  We want to produce young people who are responsible, productive, successful, and caring.  With a friendly, innovative, and enthusiastic climate, Hayden High School educates its students and prepares them to become a part of an informed, advancing society.


My wife Lisa, our four children (Audra, Owen, Jared, and Lee) and I are very proud to be a part of this Hayden High School family.  Lisa teaches fourth grade at Hayden Elementary School.  Audra is a 2006 graduate of Hayden High School,  a 2010 graduate of Auburn University, and just received her PhD from UAB. Owen is a 2009 graduate of Hayden High School, a graduate of Jacksonville State University and is currently pursuing a CRNA Doctorate.  Jared and Lee are 2012 graduates of Hayden High School. Jared is also a  graduate of Jacksonville State University with a degree in nursing and is currently  pursuing a CRNA Doctorate at Samford University.  Lee is a 2017 graduate of UAB with a degree in civil engineering. We love this school and will work hard to make it a great place for your children to grow and learn.
