    "Hamden High has been a place that shaped me for the better. While the resources may be difficult to find they are there if you re willing to put in the extra effort. The guidance department needs improvement between giving students classes they desire and assisting in preparing them for their future in college and beyond."

    "Hamden High School was overall a pretty nice school. The building is quite historical however the diversity of the student body stands out the most. This is a very good aspect and characteristic that HHS is quite well-known for. There are numerous classes with different levels to accommodate to all types of students and there are also a variety of skilled based electives/AP classes for students to choose from."

    "My highschool career was life changing. I loved the diversity and abundance of clubs, however there was no shortage of fights and over discipline. A highschoo shouldn't have a real police officer stand gaurd constantly because in some cases it ruins people."

    "I enjoyed Hamden High. The school offers a diverse array of classes that foster student interests outside of the typical subjects. I took cooking classes and all kinds of art classes. Many of the teachers are very invested in their students' success."
