The teachers at the school are great. Most of them are willing to help if you need it. The curriculum is okay, easier for others than for some. The schedule process is a disaster. Registering for classes is very hectic in the last month or two of school. Student are offered a few AP classes such as AP English and AP Physics. Band and choir are also offered and up to Spanish III. Math goes as far as calculus, and biology is up to Advance Biology. The work load isn't terribly awful but sometimes you receive homework in every class due the next day.
Review Hamlin High School
The extracurricular activities are slim-picking. The school is too small to have many options for student. The school has a few clubs like NHS, book club, SAAD and that's about it. After-school activities are sports. Not everyone can participate and we have few being: basketball, football, golf and track. The administration supports all sports and encourages the teams.
The new cafeteria is nice. Variety doesn't really exist, you get two options, both greasy and small portions. Each meal can only be 800 calories which makes it hard for kids in sports since they can't eat again until after practice, which some go until 6:30 P.M. There are no special dietary accommodations, if you cant eat what's on the menu you bring your own lunch. No snacks in class for high school students.
