Hempfield Area School District Reviews

As someone who is studying to become a secondary education teacher, Hempfield Area School District is my #1 pick. I attended this district and I have found myself gravitating towards it ever since. The teachers are fantastic and it has a lot to offer! Plenty of enrichment activities, sports, and clubs were made available to me. For example, German and Japanese were both languages offered to me in the high school; most other local schools did not have these languages available to be taken for credit. I think it's a great school.

The teachers are awesome and there is such a wide variety of classes and clubs to choose from! After just graduating, I feel prepared to attend college and take on the world! My favorite part of Hempfield were the teachers because if I needed help I knew that I would be able to receive it! As for resources, students were able to use Apple products to edit their artwork, and many expensive tools were made available to students who liked to build. The gyms were great and were equipped with many materials that could help improve the health of the students. The food in the cafeteria was pretty good, and I enjoyed looking forward to finding out what was on the menu! Overall, Hempfield is probably one of the best high schools in the area because of the well educated teachers and the environment.
Hempfield Area offered many opportunities to meet and interact with others despite its ridiculously large population. Some of the staff is incredibly knowledgeable, helpfully and genuinely care for their students both academically and personally. However, there are staff members who disregard their students and only show up to make a paycheck. A lot of the facilities are not as well kept as they should be. Administration also has a huge budgeting issue. Instead of spending money where it is needed, they decide it's best used on things such as thousands of dollars on a score board that they are unable to use. Overall my experience was pretty average with few exceptions.
