    "I have been in Hampden Charter School of Science since 2011, when I entered the sixth grade. The past seven years of being in this school I have learned a lot. I've not only learned a lot academically, but also about different cultures and languages, as well as how to prepare myself for different trials. What I liked about my time in this school is the experiences I have gotten. I've gotten to meet and become close with people of different European cultures, I've gotten to mature academically because this school is a college prep and does prepare you for college things. What I would like to see change about this school is the strict rules about certain physical traits. The school has rules about certain hair colors and piercings and certain clothing. I would like to see this change because there is a lack of self expression in this school, which is important for people to be able to express themselves."

    "Hampden Charter school of Science is a great school. If your looking for child to attend a college preparatory school with it foundations built upon both math and science well this would be the ideal school. This school networks with many near by colleges and does many annaul events giving there students recognition such as the science fair. This school has a great educational program and improving sports program"

    "I liked how almost every student was treated fairly. They try very hard to prep all students for college. There are multiple opportunities for all of the students to be involved in the school."

    "I was enrolled in this school on it second year running . The school is very small although it was expanding when I graduated. The size was great because it gave all whole school a sense of community . I knew everybody In my year by first name and what class they were in because of this we became a big family. Although we often complained deep down we lived it we were always taught material from a year ahead and if we need help we got it immediately. The school is very cultural there are teacher and students from so many different backgrounds (i.e. Turkish, Indian , Chinese etc). It gave a great sense of world view for me . I highly recommend this school they're are very strict they take no excuses that aren't valid and make you take responsibility for your actions."

    "This school pushes ethical boundaries pretty much daily. Even if the temperature is barely in the single digits or just reaching the double digits, there is still school. Adding to this, over 200 kids have to go outside to reach some of their classes. Non-school brand sweatshirt aren't allowed even in these conditions, though they're literally just a stitched on logo and sold for twice as much. Whilst the students freeze to death for the time they go to the other building, staff can freely wear their winter jackets while "escorting" students from one building to the other. Facilities are often not cleaned or smell nasty. If this isn't marketed as a public school, then why do the bathrooms smell just as bad or worse compared to public Wal-Mart bathrooms? School food is often compared to prison food, while classifying prison food as a delicacy in comparison."
