Hamburg Central School District Reviews

In the Hamburg School District, there are many opportunities for clubs and sports. There is basically any sport you would want to play and there are an overwhelming amount of clubs to choose from. There are many opportunities for advanced placement classes and even just advanced classes. Every year there were ways to get college credit, or even just ways to take a more difficult course in a subject if you wanted the challenge. Although there are some great aspects, I do wish the school administration would hire better teachers. There are a decent amount of really talented, driven teachers at Hamburg, but there are also many teachers who just do not want to be there. They have no compassion or desire to teach the students; they are only there because they have to be. I believe all teachers should be passionate about wanting to encourage and challenge their students. They should be excited to teach and delve into new material.

My overall experience was okay. My elementary school was extraordinary. We had many different things to do and all of the kids at Union Pleasant Elementary were friendly. Hamburg Middle School was my least favorite part of my schooling. Students have very little freedom in the building, and the teachers were not very helpful. In high school, most of the teachers were helpful and always willing to make time for students. However, there were classes that needed a stronger curriculum and more influential staff. The students did not have very many freedoms that young adults should, and some of the facilities are in need of improvements. Hamburg High School does offer many AP classes, but not all the teachers who teach them should be teaching them. In retrospect, Hamburg has taught me many things, however it has also made me driven to move on to the next step in my education.
I am a teen student so I obviously hate school but compared to others it could be much worse. We have many college credit classes and an excellent sports program but I feel like there is more attention to sports than to academics and the arts. And our arts are very good we just more budgeting and attention, the chorus and musical is excellent and general art work. We have had a few threats in the time I went to school but I have two more days until I am done with senior year. Teachers are friendly and mostly want their students to succeed some are iffy though with harassment allegations coming into play or not being politically correct or being professional.
