    "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."

    "The teachers at HHS aim to help all of their students. However, funding for facility maintenance and most clubs/sports is lacking, and should be a higher priority."

    "We do have diversity in Hamden High School but there are many things that could be changed. When choosing classes you need to have specific classes but some, especially the arts credits, are unnecessarily hard to get. Many of the teachers always insist on allowing the students to act as "adults" yet many insist that we have no idea how to handle ourselves. One of the good things about this school is that there are countless after-school activities to partake in."

    "Great school, if you put in enough effort. There are some really great teachers and really great kids, though they can get overshadowed by the not so good parts of the school. The principal is kind of a witch."
