    "The school is a very very large school. The teachers are not the best. They do not help the students sometimes or when they do help it doesn t benefit the student. There are some amazing teachers but otherwise, they are not the greatest. Our principle is not the best. She tries to control every aspect when we get into school. I believe we need to have some control but have rules too. Hamden High is not the best school."

    "Hamden High School is what you make of it. There are positives and negatives but the school provides plenty of opportunity and a wide variety of classes that will prepare you for college if you choose to let them."

    "Hamden High prepares for the real world and encountering people of different backgrounds. It was a big school but it felt small with everyone so close. I would like to see more focus on college readiness and techniques to survival a fast moving college course."

    "While Hamden High School is rich in diversity and has the potential to be very challenging academically it lacks equality. Very often if your child is a minority you will find yourself in the position of being their advocate. My experience of having administrators exclude me from decision making, teachers recommending my children for lower level classes when my children actually excelled in higher level classes, and guidance counselor s failure to submit important documents has been my experience. The security guards keep the children safe and do a wonderful job of getting to know the children and interact well with them. You may see teachers and administrators after hours at games and extracurricular functions to show investment in the student as a whole. Those are invaluable assets to the school. There are several great qualities for our only town High School but there is still much work to be done for all to get the education they deserve and their parents expect."
