I love how it's a diverse school. You have people from all over the globe that attend HSE. It's very welcoming and there are almost any clubs and sports for anyone. If there isn't a club that you connect with, no problem. You can create one that fits you. Something that the school could improve on would be its school lunch. Lunch is the same every week and if you don't bring your lunch this can get boring. Also some teachers at the school aren't there to teach and don't seem to care. Especially the teachers in the math department. There needs to be an improvement because students, including myself, are upset with the department.
Hamilton Southeast High School pushes and challenges it's students to be better and look towards our futures. I have ADD with high anxiety that was not discovered until I was in 7th grade. This school district has given me the tools and help to be where I am today! I didn't move into this district until 5th grade and I was lost. Now I have a job at Chick-fil-a and was promoted to trainer do to the confidence the school has given me to believe anything is possible with hard work.
The teachers at Hamilton Southeastern are dedicated and enjoy their job. This is a school where getting a teaching position is difficult,so the teachers have to set themselves apart from the hundreds of applicants. There are a wide variety of types of teachers. There are few that are not that dedicated and knowledgeable on the subject they are teaching, but for the most part the teachers do care. The teachers will go to sporting events and academic competitions outside of school, this is just one example about how much they care. Most teachers check their email and some have remind 101 text messages to alert students of what is going on in class and students are able to contact them.
