I went to this school when the middle school and high school were in the same building. I only went there until 7th grade. If you live in the town of Hampshire this is a good school. But if you live outside of town it is hard to fit in. I do not know why but it seems like people only want to talk to you if you live in town. Other then that it is a great small town school.
Love this school! The Teachers, the Principals and Deans, and the Office Staff are all wonderful, caring people. They put forth extra effort to make kids who have never liked school (like my son), actually look forward to going! Yeah! The teachers make phone calls and send emails to parents, with praise or concern for their students, and then they make time to give extra tutoring before or after school, and during lunch and ASP, when needed. I feel extremely privileged that my child is able to attend such a wonderful school.
This high school is a fairly new facility, looks great, and has room to accommodate the ever growing community. However the main office staff leaves much to be desired. Most of the teaching staff is spot on and driven to helping students be prepared for college. From the moment a freshman walks in the door , until they make the long walk on stage to graduate, students have so many opportunities available to them to explore future career paths both academically, and via extra curricular activities. If the main office staff stopped treating parents as imbeciles this school would get a five star rating all around.
Hampshire High School is a test based school their grading scale makes it impossible for a student to be prepared for college level classes. The administration is more concerned about the way the community and the parents see the scholl than they are educating our children.
