Hammond School Reviews
The classes are hard, but the support from teachers both inside and outside of the classroom is unmatched.
The student body is amazing. My experience at Hammond was in all involvements: from athletics, to the Select Ensemble, to the stage. Hammond fosters an environment where kids can do everything, and it is NORMAL to do so. It shapes so many kids personalities and experiences.
The faculty support kids in all they do, and they are always open to new ideas. Steven Hillard is a treasure. My favorite part of the COVID 2020-2021 school year was when students came up with the idea for a school wide March madness cornhole tournament, and he provided, resulting in the closest knit student body I have ever seen.
Hammond is where all students should invest in their children’s futures.
