Hawkins High School is the high school in the town of Hawkins. It is located next to Hawkins Middle School. Its football team is the Tigers, corresponding to the middle school's team, the Cubs.



Jim Hopper attended Hawkins High School along with Joyce Byers and Bob Newby.


The school had an assembly on the football field following the vanishing of Will Byers.


The day after Halloween, the school basketball teams hosted a friendly match among themselves at the gym, in which Billy's team easily outplayed Steve's.


The kids went on summer vacation so they had no reason to visit Hawkins High or attend school. Steve also managed to graduate from Hawkins High, but due to not having the grades to go to college, he was forced by his father to get a job at the newly built Starcourt Mall's ice cream parlor, Scoops Ahoy.



Mike Wheeler, Dustin Henderson, Lucas Sinclair, and Max Mayfield have now begun attending Hawkins High high as freshmen, while Robin and Nancy have become seniors. Jonathan has transferred out of Hawkins High due to his family moving to California. Mike, Dustin, and Lucas have joined the school's despised D&D club, the Hellfire Club, ran by repeated senior Eddie Munson. Lucas struggles to be loyal to Hellfire while also being a benchwarmer for the Hawkins High Basketball Team, headed by Jason Carver. Meanwhile, Max has begun seeing the school's new guidance counselor, Ms. Kelly, due to her poor grades and health as a result of Billy's death.

Lucas led the basketball team to victory following a 22-year losing streak after winning the championship. Afterward, the kids weren't at school due to Spring Break. However, Dustin, Lucas, Max, Nancy, Steve, and Robin broke in to obtain files from Ms. Kelly's office regarding Chrissy and Fred's health statuses before their deaths.
