I went to two Hampton City Schools. I saw that both schools exemplified outstanding curriculum and administration was especially involved in the students’ wellbeing and education. Staff was amazing and very passionate about their work and teachings. I’m very proud and excited to say that I will be graduating from Hampton City Schools!

I respect the teachers and how most go out of their way to support us whether it's school related, extracurricular activities, or personal. The encouraging nature of my guidance counselor and college and careers coach has been outstanding. They've provided opportunities and assistance all four years. Some areas I would like to see change are parent involvement and school food quantity. Some parents don’t participate in their child’s education. It takes the school and the parent to educate the child. Beyond just education, it is important to support a child's school and its affiliated events. There is a notable lack of monetary donations to a student's grade level class, joining the PTA, support at sporting events and art shows. The main problem with school food is the portions. High school students should have larger serving sizes than elementary school students. It's not enough to hold us over and it's definitely not enough for the kids who only get to eat at school.
Being able to be apart of Hampton City Schools has been a pleasure. Learning from experienced teachers and their willingness to create an better learning environment for the community, has helped me in ways I couldn't have imagined! Even without proper funding and materials, success is always a achievable goal in Hampton City Schools.
