"Things are really starting to improve. The new administration is professional and they don't tolerate any nonsense. Some of the new teachers are making a big difference."
"There are so many things to complain about when it comes to Hampshire. Most of the teachers are horrible, some are fair, others I LOVE - lunches are tasteless and disgusting (though they're definitely better than last year). The school is SERIOUSLY run by the students, NOT the admins. Most just seem to see it as an easy pay-check, instead of preparing their youth for the future. I've sat in classes where fights and raging arguments have broken out, people curse at teachers and disrespect everyone. Not only are they preventing themselves from learning, but because the admin doesn't remove them it makes it impossible for everyone else to learn. The school is WAY too crowded. HHS definitely doesn't offer enough elective classes either, the ones offered are mainly agriculture classes. Overall - the school is absolutely ridiculous."
"I agree with the last poster on all statements except the last. There are several more teachers who care and prepare students for college, but not near all. My child has had one or two 'great' teachers a semester. The school is too large to have a caring atmosphere. I wish I had other options than Hampshire County."
"This school is run by the students; not the administrators who are weak in providing teacher support and discipling the misbehaving students. They have too many disruptions such as bomb threats, lockdowns, kids fighting and disrespect. Many teachers end up leaving in June or in mid-school year. Sorry to hear if your kid attends this chaotic school. Only a few teachers will prepare you for college such as Ann Warner, Rita Hott and Renee Carder."
