Hampden Academy is an excellent school with minor administrative/ organization problems. Overall though they were helpful with AP classes/academics/ dual enrollment questions I had while I was a junior/senior. I truly had many chances to succeed in my leadership abilities. Most of the teachers were easy to turn to. Guidance resources are helpful at times but could be more accessible to students and easier to understand... was left many times clueless about classes and waiting around for an answer. The process of applying to college was fairly easy. APs are encouraged. A fault of the school is changing the curriculum far too often, watching underclassmen after me being allowed to take math/ English classes by ability level. Finally, the arts are at an absolute low- school cut family development/cooking/arts classes which is disappointing.

Very nice building and facilities! Teachers are very good, helpful, and quite personable. Food is pretty good for high school food and there are lots of options and snacks available throughout the day. There are many sports and clubs offered, including fun things like beekeeping club and hoola hooping club. People are decent and there isn't really much drama at all, unless you purposefully create it. Overall a pretty good place to spend four years.
I'm in my Sophomore year here at hampden Academy and it has been very good. In my freshmen year, the teachers worked very hard to make sure that you are acceding in your first year of high school. They teach you time management skills, studying skills, and also gave different ways to learn. Coming into my sophomore year I felt as though I had the skills that I needed to be able to accel because of the skills that they taught us the year before.
