Great school! They have amazing staff and AMAZING TEACHERS! The admin is pretty good a little to strict no senior privileges. Very safe! Unfortunately there is little to know ethnic or economical diversity( most kids are rich white kids). The building needs some attention, parts recently upgraded( library gym history rooms, but the other parts like most classrooms, auditorium and shop need some upgrades especially the cafeteria. The sports teams are pretty good and there are really good coaches. They definitely need to add A/C to the whole building

It isn't a large high school that helped cultivate a positive and happy environment for learning and living. Everyone knew one another, including the teachers, and as a class, we had a lot of fun together. There are a lot of things to do outside of class and we all cheered each other on throughout the year. It's a great place to learn and grow as a person and student. Highly recommend!
Going to Hamilton-Wenham was a good experience. Teachers were dedicated to students, curriculums were rigorous, and the school environment was one of support with an adherence to scholarship. With that being said, there are still ways in which the school must improve in order to provide a better quality of life for students–this resides mainly within its facilities. HWRHS is very old and out of date. Bathrooms have not been updated since the school was built, pipes have burst during my attendance, and many areas of the school need to be redone. This stands in stark contrast to other school districts on the North Shore with completely renovated schools. Beverly and Manchester Essex stand out. Furthermore, the lack of racial, economic, and religious diversity in the school lends to a unified experience that does not benefit students. While this is largely the fault of town demographics, the school curriculum could do more to teach diversely, such as, including more voices of color.
