Hampton City Public Schools Reviews
I like that Hampton City Schools has a wide variety of class options, programs, and a diverse school system. There is a place for every student to pursue their passion ranging from getting recruited for a college sport or getting a professional certification before you graduate. I admire the ambitious school district for taking on many projects such as Freshman Academies, where they can begin to explore careers through classes as early as the ninth grade. For me personally, participating in their Gifted Program and their Governor's STEM Applied Arts Academy has greatly enriched my years as a student. I have felt at home in Hampton City Schools, and enjoyed all my years as a student there.
For my school personally I enjoy the teachers and administration. In my high school career I have met some of the most caring and supportive people I know who have helped and encouraged me to push and better myself. Although I cannot speak on behalf of all of the staff, most of the ones I have encountered have built strong relationships with either myself or other students. On another note however, I believe there are a few things I would like to see change. For example as an athlete, I would like to see the district build the athletics program, focusing on all sports and giving them the recognition and funding they deserve. I also know for many students more satisfying and quality lunch options would be appreciated. A lot of students don't want to make their lunch or don't have time to, therefore buying cafeteria food. Although it is not an immediate issue, I believe it would increase student satisfaction.
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!
