The best part of Hammond High is the few teachers that put in the extra time to contribute to your future education whether its from a letters of recommendation to advice on what decorations for your dorm room will look the best. My favorite part that I will never forget is the JROTC program it has to offer. This program has allowed me to grow a interest in helping others by giving me community service opportunities and taught me values that have help me use in everyday situations. The big change I would like to see at Hammond High School is the recognition of the students and teachers who bring light and change to overturn this outlook on Hammond Highs label as ¨ghetto".

What I liked most about Hammond High School would be how teachers are so involved within the student activities and how teachers and staff provide excellent learning material so that each and every student can be successful.
They tried they're very best to make a great learning environment despite all the negative factors. Petitions to have the school torn down did not stop them, the professors and administrators continuously strived to keep the students in line by being well disciplined and by helping them with whatever they needed academically.
