I'm now halfway through college as a biology major. HSE set me up for success in a way that a lot of my current classmates' schools did not. There were a lot of courses that other schools do not offer that made my college experience easier. The teachers clearly knew how to transition students into higher education. I only know of a couple people that did not go on to college. I was also in athletics as a cheerleader. The athletic department still has some way to go in recognizing cheerleading as a sport on par with other sports, but my coaches were great leaders and role models. Overall, I have a lot of great memories with my teammates and classmates. I'm excited for our first reunion already!
Review Hamilton Southeastern High School
I moved here about 2 years ago, and it was great. When I moved here the culture was different then what I was used to but that's ok! The staff here is amazing (minus the math department) and you can make great connections with majority of them. They all care about students grades and other classes. The school has so many clubs and extra activities that almost everyone participates in something. The sports are very intense and they go to semi state almost every year for any sport. Everyone attends school games and dress up with the themes. It is a blast. I love it here!
I really enjoy my experience as a high school student at this school. I am highly involved with the drama club, choir, and various sports, at the same time as maintaining a consistently improving GPA (currently 3.9). Friendly and enjoyable environment to learn in, which prepares me very well for college next year!
