Lake Hamilton High School Reviews

Lake Hamilton High School has been an experience with mixed emotions. I believe that many students are prepared to enter the work force or college with average readiness. If the student tries in their classes and has good grades then they are viewed as a student who will be successful in the future and are not worried about. However, I believe that students who do not have as good a home life as others do not get the learning they should be receiving. I believe that students who are viewed as “troubled” or “problematic” are pushed to the side. A specific amount of teachers choose not to help these students as they wish to get through the day with no problems and just earn a paycheck. This low standard is not the case with every teacher though, as many teachers go out of there way to help students achieve what they would like for the future. Lake Hamilton High School should put a higher effort in to the hiring of these administrators who have a pleasure in bettering students.

I know that, comparatively, Lake Hamilton is one of the better high schools in Arkansas and in my area, but there is still so much that could be improved in this school. Many students feel neglected, and there is very low school spirit because most of us feel like this school treats its students like crap. Not to mention most of the teachers are either bad at teaching or they just don't care. You have a few good ones, but for the most part the teachers and curriculum and the administration just serve to confuse and stress out the students to the point that most of us have joked about killing ourselves if it meant that we didn't have to deal with this school and its BS. Most of us do not like Lake Hamilton, and feel no pride about our high school. We also make fun of the school by mocking our motto, "School of Champions", when things go wrong or are unsavory because the people who are in charge are either incompetent or don't know what they're doing.
The school is great academics and is overall a great place to be in, however in the case of health concerns and coronavirus temperatures should have been taken everyday before entering the building because the amounts of cases and quarantines has been very high.
