I loved Hampton high school! It's very diverse, so many people of different color, ethnicities, and interests. There's a friend group for almost anyone! I loved our pep rallies and homecomings. Hampton is what you make it, if you participate you could have experiences that last forever.

I sucessfully graduated in June 2020. All of my teachers were helpful and very supportive, yet I've heard about how some other teachers just don't care about the students. I just hope that the security guards become stricter because they're like friends with the students. Too many students hang out in the hallways and they don't say anything about it. I think they need to hire more janitors since I've seen cockroaches and rats at school. But the bigger issue is that the students don't clean up after themselves. We are allowed to eat in the library and classroom, but people leave their mess on the desks and drop crumbs on the ground. The cafeteria is even worst, the trash can is literally five steps away, yet some people still leave their trays on the table. How hard is it to throw your trash away. They don't control their volumes either. It gets annoying when I can't hear what my friend sitting across from me is trying to say, so I stopped eating in the cafeteria mid-sophomore year.
I fully enjoy Hampton High and find that it is a great school with well rounded classes. The learning environments are very fun and are filled with teachers and staff who do their best to make sure their students are as successful as possible, not to mention the mentor-ships that the school offers embracing the “no child left behind” act so that all students have some sort of positive guidance . When it comes to extracurriculars there’s variety, giving students an opportunity to have at least one place where they feel welcome. However if there is one thing that could make the school better, it would be extracurricular funding. It’s hard being able to really enjoy an extracurricular knowing that all your activities are limited to a certain amount of money, that is if your club/sport gets any money at all. Overall Hampton High is a great school and I feel that it’s creating more heroes and successful teens everyday.
