Hamtramck Public Schools Reviews

I liked that the AP courses were challenging, however, I found regular courses too easy. Additionally, many say Hamtramck High School is extremely diverse, I do not agree with this. Additionally, the cleanliness of the school is below average. The stench from the bathroom can be smelled meters away and there are cockroaches crawling everywhere. Additionally there are rats lurking in classrooms and the art room is RARELY cleaned. Additionally, the food is below average. Chicken patties and pizza are served EVERYDAY along with other dishes. However, the when the dishes run out, students are stuck eating a chicken patty or pizza. The chicken patties are too hard & the milk sometimes has blocks of ice in it. & these are only a few issues concerning the food. Disregarding all of that, breakfast is brought up to the classroom, this is something most students enjoy. Additionally, despite the milk issue, the breakfast is decent. There are many other great aspects in Hamtramck High School.

I’ve attended Hamtramck High School and it was great. I’ve met people from all over the world. It was incredible meeting people from different places. I’ve learned a lot from my teachers and peers. I loved the diversity in Hamtramck. All of my teachers have helped me throughout school and I loved being in such a place.

I also joined many different after school clubs such as robotics, leap, student union and each of them built me up in several ways. Extra activities helped me come out of my comfort zone.

I’ve experienced different things such as dancing and singing in our school. In a word Hamtramck was amazing and taught me a lot that I never knew before.
Hamtramck high school is a beautiful and good place.There so many different country people work. Teacher are really nice and understanding helpful.
