Hingham High School Reviews

I joined Hingham High School in my senior year because I heard about their rigorous academics, and I wanted to be a part of a community. (Previously, my family homeschooled me for nine years in Alabama. Hingham High was a way for me to establish more relationships in Massachusetts.) While my experience at the school is out of the ordinary, I think my history gives me a unique perspective and a fresh view of the school in general.
They do give large amounts of homework and the culture is very competitive. While both homework and competition are healthy to a certain degree, an excess amount of either can suppress the growth of students. Many students cheat at HHS their way through, and this gives the honest students a disadvantage because the teachers expect more out of the class. I do think, however, that Hingham High does have an intelligent student body that is taught by qualified and passionate teachers. I appreciate my experience at HHS and the people I met there.

This school is made out to be an amazing school with a great education. But I really didn't find much of an education. There were a lot of teachers that were not very nice to student and there were a lot of teachers that didn't even know how to teach or answer questions. Also the student life was awful, they are very cliquy and can be very rude to each other. Very judgmental. The guidance counselors are a hit or miss some are good and some are awful. The principal is wonderful, love him. Sport are pretty average, school spirit is really bad too.
Love this school! Two small gripes- I think athletics are heavily prioritized and it's sometimes hard for students who are not student athletes to feel involved and appreciated. Second, I think the overall culture is one of nearly toxic competitiveness, something I would love to see changed.
