The Hamilton Southeastern School District tries it's best to support students in the academic discoveries by providing many opportunities to take part in different activities and classes that leads them to a better future. Although, the administration tries their best, the overall support for student mental health is lacking by taking a long time for respond and by taking the response seriously. They also struggle in diversity and the prevention of racist incidents fulfilled by the older students, considering it is a predominantly white school district. Some teachers show great passion for their jobs and it shows, but there are several teachers who are cruel to students and nothing is done because of the length of time the have been teaching. The school district is also very set on showing academic achievement by fails to consider the mental toll it has on it's students.

HSE has all the benefits of a large school district but also has the pitfalls. While the education is objectively fantastic in its honors, accelerated learning, and AP programs, it also loses sight of the mental health of the individual student. While there are resources for those who need it, those who need it will often go unnoticed, as it seems the only thing they use to gauge mental health is the student's grades, when the student could be sacrificing their mental health for those grades.
Hamilton Southeastern School District is an amazing school district with committed teachers and staff. The opportunities are endless for the students. During students' senior year, they are eligible to take four advanced placement classes during the school day. This allows students to have a college like schedule and better prepares them. There are dozens upon dozens of college classes available with a whole branch of the both schools that is dedicated to prepare you for college. There are various programs that allow students to leave school and get certificates in beauty school, EMT, Certified Nursing Assistant, and others. The students are well behaved and there is a safe environment from the moment you enter the doors.
