Hempfield Area School District Reviews
At HASD, resources available to non-STEM students are quite lacking, leading to most high-performing students to go into engineering and medicine, disinterested in Humanities, Arts, Literature, etc. The facilities are extremely poor, with notable issues in the bathrooms, ceilings, and air conditioning; it is always being worsened further by the group of students which are breaking and vandalizing equipment. There are some teachers, however, who truly take pride in their job and excel. Unlike the others in the district, they truly focus on the students' ability to retain and master the material rather than merely earn high scores on standardized exams and grades. Administration seems to acknowledge, but take very few intentional steps to fix the variety of issues at the high school, such as harassment, mental health, and vandalism.
I am pleased to say that I have spent my whole academic career at Hempfield Area School District. K-12, the teachers are the best people and have a number one priority of their students. The school district makes its rules crystal clear to everyone attending and I am glad I got to spend the past 13 years of my life at a place like Hempfield!
I would rate my overall experience at Hempfield Area School District as average. In my opinion, there are many pros as well as many cons. For me, I found the teachers the most helpful to me rather than principals, secretaries or guidance counselors. Being a senior, I wish that the guidance department would have been more proactive about life after high school from a younger age. I felt a huge disconnect between their department and felt so lost when beginning my college search on my own, with little to no prior knowledge. I also wish that all teachers would have began to transition classes into a "college like" environment to provide students with more insight to how that would be, instead of keeping the traditional high school class environment. Despite all of the negatives that I experienced, there are so many teachers I felt who were so great at what they do. They're personable and real. They treat their students as adults and instill knowledge, that for me, will last a life time.
