I have attended HMS from kindergarten through my current senior year. Over the years, I consider the school to have improved. Not necessarily in the sense of athletic success, but in areas of music, academics, and student culture, I really enjoy it here. Kids are nice and welcoming to each other, and it's just a good atmosphere.

I am a 2019 Graduate. I spent most of my life in the HMS district. Overall I had a great learning experience as well as social experience at Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn. You are able to get an education as well as have many teachers and administrators looking out for your safety, well being, learning experience, as well as enjoying school.
As the older I get, the better the school is getting. The school is in the process of getting better teachers. Our education is one of the best in this area.
