Hamburg High School Reviews

Overall, I really enjoyed my past four years at Hamburg. It is a safe school, with lots of activities, and geniune teachers who are passionate about their job. There are certain teachers who do not care, but that is anywhere you go. Football games and clubs are a lot of fun, but it is up to the student to get involved. I would have liked more guidance from counselors/teachers/administration etc. My friends and I have had to do the entire college application process on our own and the guidance counselors are not good at their job. I have friends who do not want to go to college but do not know alternative job/education opportunities, due to the fact that no one told us about it. BOCES program is awesome for those who want to learn a trade or get a head start on what they are going to study in college, but it is discouraged by teachers and not encouraged by counselors for some reason.

Hamburg High school has been cracking down on students vaping. They increased surveillance of the bathrooms and hallways, which I believe is a necessary step to discourage and hopefully stop this epidemic. I also appreciate that we have a safety patrol officer at our school, who makes me and certainly many students feel safe in an unsafe world. If I had to critique one thing about this school, it would be the use of the money that they are given. For example, they recently renovated our library, when many of the bathrooms and water fountains are almost rundown. I am very grateful to be going to this school.
My experience with Hamburg High School has been mostly good. There is very little diversity in the school, most students are Caucasian and our diversity really comes from the LGBTQ+ students in the school. Luckily, most teachers and students are pretty accepting and I haven't really experienced any difficulty with being LGBT from my peers until this year. Our school is still lacking in providing adequate protection and services for LGBT students such as protection against harassment and gender-neutral bathrooms, but the school as a whole is very safe and we have our own police officer in case of emergency. The majority of teachers are great at their job and are compassionate towards students so my academic experience was mostly positive. Overall, Hamburg High School is a pretty good school aside from a few flaws affecting the minorities.
