It has fights and drama, the teachers don't care about you the students are bullies there's crowded hallways and people can't mind their own business or mind their manners. There only a few good teachers. Other then that my two years at Hammond High were horrible

Good teachers, but lack of administrative control - student behavior and hence learning in many classes is poor. Too much emphasis on athletics rather than scholarship

My child graduated from Hammond in 2012 and received a 4 year academic scholarship for college. The school has a lot of support for students identified with learning disabilities and the Ms. Leonard is awesome...very involved in all school related activities

Because, even in all the chaos, there are people. People that are honest, loyal, and have good honest values that this poor world seems to be lacking as of late.

Due to a retirement, Hammond High has recently (summer '10) acquired a new principal, Marcia Leonard. She is experienced, and comes to us from another nearby high school that now rates a 10 on this site. Many in the community credit her leadership as a key to the improvements there. Her arrival and first actions seem to have sparked a very positive energy at Hammond among students, faculty and parents. She has certainly impressed the parents in the interactions we have had so far. She is dynamic and positive, yet grounded with real life experience. As a parent, I think parent involvement could be greater than it has been, but suspect it is about to increase substantially.

I am a class of 2010 senior, have gone to hammond all four years, and i have really liked it there! all the teachers enjoy their jobs and are there to help and stay after school if a student needs help with something. The school isnt too big or too small so it is IMPOSSIBLE to get lost and the classes are the same. if you are just moving to the area and want your child to fit in hammond is that place. hammond is so diverse and cultural that newcomers are always welcomed and never shunned because we welcome every kind of background. Im picking my colleges and things and I feel like hammond has prepared me to go to college :)

Hammond has great teachers that are dedicated to keep their students engaged and challenged. Unfortunately the majority of the student body are kids that are rude, disrespectful, and immature. The reason why the school is not the best is simply because of the students and lack of parent involvement, not the teachers. As for the administrators, I'm not sure there doing an effective job to reduce the number of violent incidents that occur here at Hammond.

I would recommend this school to students who are self-motivated to succeed and have a great desire to get involved. It is possible to be very successful at Hammond, but you can't expect the teachers to do it all for you. If you love school spirit and are avid in attending sporting events and shows, then this is the school for you.

I recently completed my freshman year at Hammond. I came to Hammond and knew few people from my middle school, but I quickly made new friends. The teachers and students are wonderful. My favorite teacher was Mr. Burke. I have been excelling this year and have been recomended for high classes next year. It is true that the school is a little run down and there are troublesome students, as well as few bad teachers, but it is a very caring environment and a great place to learn. Most of the teachers are excellent. I would reccomend this school to anyone. The only students that think this is a bad school are ones that misbehave and do not try in school.

I have had 5 children graduate from hammond, and my youngest will enter in 2 years. I have been through 2 administrators i have kids in the honors programs, and kids with iep's . As a parent, i never had a problem getting a response form teachers or staff, across the board, and through the years, i have found this school to be wonderful, but then, it is what you make it!! i am looking forward to my youngest being there!

I am a parent of a couple of students at Hammond and I do agree w/ the last review, However it takes a parent, a teacher and a child to make the class a success. There are a lot of ingredients to teaching and parenting.There are a lot of wonderful teachers at Hammond just like any school and there are also several just paid employees. However overall Hammond is a great school and has wonderful teachers, student and parents.

I am a current senior at Hammond, and my father is a teacher here. I am offended reading the negative reviews, partially because the grammar and spelling are atrocious, but also because the reviews themselves are poor and inaccurate. Hammond, like a majority of other schools, is what you make it. If a student makes an effort, and if a parent becomes more than a little involved in their student's academic career, the student should be fine. I've had the best English and Math teachers I could ask for here, and I know for a fact that the majority of the teachers truly care and do everything in their power to help. It's up to the parents to make sure that their student is doing the work, and if the student fails, overall, the parent has failed too.
