I personally believe that Hemet High school is a great school! We have so many caring teachers who are wonderful people and as long as you ask for help you will receive it, any problems are super easy to report and can even be reported anonymously. I am glad to be apart of such an amazing campus and a campus that supports their students. Through my 4 years we have gone through many trials as a school, a shooting threat, students passing ways through accidents, medical issues, or them sadly taking their own, through all this it has brought our schools community closer together, picking each other up when we are down. I feel as is our school is always unites when we need to and that is what makes Hemet High school great!

Hemet High School is a good school, but it has several issues. For instance, the bathrooms are filthy. The toilets are constantly clogged with toilet paper, food, trash, and other various items. Besides the bathrooms being disgusting, they are also always locked. Because of the issues with drugs and smoking on this campus, administration locks all but two bathrooms daily. This causes chaos and major difficulty just trying to use the restroom. Despite the negatives of this school, there are positive aspects as well. For example, most of the teachers here are exceptionally good at what they do. They engage the students in classroom activities, more than just standing in the front of the classroom and lecturing the entire time. The teachers also care about the students as human beings, and do their best to accommodate them in ways that they can.
Hemet High School is an great school to start your high school year. But it is up to the students if they want an amazing four years of high school. Teacher are willing to help students, if the students ask for help. Also, counselors will check up on students with the grades, career pathway after high school, and many more. Hemet high school also help students with learning disability, they have certain classes for learning disabilites so they would not miss out on anything and teachers will help them if any student have a learning disability.
