Hammonton High School provided me with the most eclectic high school experience I could have asked for. I loved the academic environment in which I was able to prosper thanks to amazing teachers, competitive classmates, and innumerable opportunities. I was also able to compete in a competitive athletic conference as a four year member of the varsity field hockey team. I was involved in several clubs and organizations like: National Honor Society, Student Council, Executive Homeroom, Green Club, World Language Club, and Future Nurses Club- which all provided me with so many unique experiences in which I learned more than I ever expected. The only thing that Hammonton High School should change is its grade scale outline. While some of my classes have been on the AP scale, they all haven't, and it's frustrating to know that my GPA could've been approximately a whole point higher if my high school was on the ten point scale like millions of others around the country.

Hammonton High School has been a great experience through my four years of learning. The teachers care about giving you the education you need to be successful in the future with college. They are always a helping hand whether it is tutoring or even just person things, they are there for anyone. Hammonton has many clubs, sports, and activities so that everyone finds their place. I have personally played basketball for the school and it was the best part of the year. Throughout my experience I would have to give Hammonton a pretty good rating considering every adult working there is greatly involved.
There are many things that Hammonton is good for. There are also many things Hammonton could change. The best part of Hammonton for me was being able to take multiple science electives, and being able to take more educational classes. Hammonton could definitely improve the dress code and the food. The dress cod is ridiculously insane. So many ridiculous rules, like no hoodies, no holes in jeans, no slides. Also, the food is pretty gross. It is ALWAYS chicken patty or “cheesesteaks”. And everything is frozen for weeks and half the time not even cooked through. So as I stated, Hammonton is good for many reasons, but also has its offsets.
