HAST is a new school. It sure does show in the planning and structure of the school. The curriculum is supposed to be rigorous, but it is just stressful. Most teachers are very unqualified. The student body is a cesspool of depressed, overworked children. On top of that, They don't provide much help to students with mental illnesses. People claim that HAST is a family, but it feels like it's every man for themselves.

Although new, the sense of closeness between faculty and students couldn't be compared to anything else. However, the change of teachers every year is a bit frustrating. My graduating class lost 3/4 of our teachers during sophmore year and I didn't get an Algebra II education and it didn't prepare me for precalc, but mostly calculus. However, I feel like I am slowly getting better at calculus.
Hammond Academy is a widely recommended school. The experience you get is like no other high school. Especially one that is well diversified not only in people but cultures. We all listen to each other, we set examples for the grades lower than us. It feels like a family within a little community.
