Hamburg Area School District Reviews

I have overall had a wonderful eperience at Hamburg. The students, teachers and staff are all extremely friendly and willing to help anyone. They offer a wide variety of advanced placement and college prep courses as well as classes and clubs specified to your field of interest. In addition, they offer online classes as well as the opportunity to attend trade school for half the day if they do not have classes specific to your needs or interests: culinary, automotive, cosmatology, etc. Because the school is smaller and classes are not overly large, students have the ability to interact one-on-one with the teachers before, during and after school if they should need help. Schedules are fit to include any and all desired classes including classes that can be taken completely online through their Virtual Learning Program to insure their students' success in college and beyond.

Hamburg Area School District lives up to its motto "A great place to live and learn." Most teachers are well rounded and teach their subjects in a comprehensible way. The Honors/AP class teachers especially run their classes like a college course which helps students feel confident going into college. All teachers though, have an incredible work ethic and are very educated. The principals are amazing as well, always saying hello to students in the hallway and encouraging them to have a great day. They are motivating and fit for their position as principal. Coaches are motivating and supportive as well. I have played three sports each year up until now and I cannot remember any season where I did not improve. Hamburg also has 30-40 clubs which could fit anyone. Lastly, I want to mention the guidance counselors and our career specialist. With their help I have obtained an internship, made it through the college selection process, and learned about several scholarship opportunities.
I like that Hamburg Area High School offers a wide variety of clubs, activities, sports, and classes that cater to many different wants and needs of the students. Students are allowed to explore different interests in classes without the pressure of staying in that field. I also like that Hamburg also takes good care of their students, which is shown in the way that the teachers and staff are able to have a professional yet caring attitude with the students. I would like to see a change in the way the students act. Some of them are very rude and are not kind. Also, there is very little diverstiy in the student/teacher population.
