Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Reviews

Pretty great school, but there are definitely some things that could be better. The food that is served is way overpriced and usually not very good. It is not a very diverse school, but nobody really complains about that. Most of the faculty and staff are great and really care about the students and their education. The sports are great with at least one team going to tournament almost every season. This might be one of the safest schools in the country, being in such a nice community with emergency services close by and ready to respond in the rare case of an emergency. The facilities are pretty well taken care of and the custodians are pretty cool. I can not imagine going to any other high school.
Review Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School
The four years that I attended Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School were the best four years of my life. Everyday I was excited to go to school, see my friends, and go to class. I was heavily involved in athletics at Hamilton-Wenham and due to that involvement I have made many friends who will be friends for life. The school community was very close together throughout the whole school. Everyone was friendly with everyone else and it was small enough so you got to know everyone pretty well. If I had the opportunity to go back to high school again I would choose Hamilton-Wenham every single time.
I enjoyed my experience at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School. It more than adequately prepared me for college; I attend a rigorous liberal arts school and find that my workload is more manageable at college than it was at HWRHS. The academics are challenging but the teachers are great. There is a lack of diversity but that is most likely due to the demographics of the surrounding area.
