Coming to the close of my senior year my experience at Hampton has been bittersweet. I've spent my whole 4 years at Hampton High and my biggest challenge was finding my pathway to which program fits my needs. I started out in the International Baccalaureate program. With that came some highs and some lows so I decide to discontinue my junior year. I placed myself in dual enrollment classes following transfer, best decision by far. Because leaving high school I already have college credits. High School teaches you how to navigate through challenges and find a solution. With that the bittersweet part is that it's the end of road at Hampton High but now it's the beginning of a journey through life.

Amazing school with outstanding leadership and incredibly dedicated teachers. There is a strong sense of collaboration and dedication between staff. Students are challenged and motivated to have a growth mindset. School focuses on students academic success as well as providing exposure to arts, music and allowing for multiple recess/gym time. They are focusing on developing well rounded leaders for our future!
Overall, Hampton High School is getting better. As an IB student, it's difficult to rate the school from a different perspective. Most honors teachers as well as AP and IB take the curriculum seriously and truly want to help you succeed. A lot of the issues deal with a personal preference on how they work and contribute to the classroom setting. If you put forth the effort and talk to your counselor and teachers it's easy to fix any problems you are having. The building itself is falling apart. However, it isn't all on the school. Public schools in general are underfunded and Hampton works with what it has. Some clubs are better than others. Security does what it needs to in the moment but nothing else. I personally feel like we have good access to learning materials but in the end it depends on your teachers' teaching style. The school could use a lot of work but it is an enjoyable place to be. It has a nice diversity, not only in race and religion but also in maturity and mentality.
