Hamilton County High School is a great place to be teaching! Working here is like being part of a big family. The teachers and administration care very much about the students and their families. The expectations for learning are high and most students are eager to learn.
A total mess. Even with new administration. Bullying is out of control, when it is reported it is swept under the rug because the offenders are the "good old boy or girls kids" the middle school girls are the worst. This district will end up in the news for bullying. Teachers struggle with academics trying to just get the class under control. I gave it 1 star for the Ag department at least that seems to be under strong direction. We moved here thinking it was a better place for our kids but 1 year into this train wreck we will be moving to a private school.
I do like this school and you can get a good education but I would rather have my child at this school overall any school because it has more teachers than the average high school probably!
I am a student at this school, it's an okay school but if you read the comments below, you can see how well the children are being taught. -example-The teachers here take thier time to make sure you understand what is being teached.--- yea, shouldn't that be taught, not teached? ----o another example--are princepal would show u dicpline-- are should be are, and princepal?-- I'm not trying to be harsh, I'm just trying to point out that we could do a lot better.
hi hamtion county high school is great u get a good education and good food and are princepal would show u dicpline thats why i love going there i wish we could start back school early because i will love too be at hamtion county high
I've just graduated from HCHS in 2009 and, I must admit, it left an impact on me. The teachers did their jobs spectacularly, the students are better than you'd expect, and it's an all-around good place to learn. I recommend Hamilton County High School heavily. --Justin T.
I had children, attend this school, I graduated from this county school district, and I have had four siblings graduate from Hamilton County High School. I m a retired Lieutenant Colonel U.S.Army, graduate of Florida State University....My Sister is a 4 year national merit scholarship winner and now a retired IBM Executive....My youngest brother is a regional supervisor of a major electrical company covering three states, my younger sister is a registered nurse and head nurse of dialysis serves in the three county area, my older brother is a certified electrician working industrial electrical wiring and maintenance. My daughter is a 4 year scholarship recipient interning in dietetics and will be fully registered dietitian next year. You Can Get an Education at Hamilton County High School....IF You WORK at it and take what the teachers have to give.
I love this school most students don't. The teachers here take thier time to make sure you understand what is being teached. For example Ms.Taylor 8th grade science always askes us students if we understand what she has just taught us and we are blessed to have her among the other students. Thank you so muc Ms.Taylor Sincerly, Leslie Sanders 8th grade student
I love this school with a passion. Yes it has some rough edges to it but what schools dont. And the new administration is a great new start for us all
I think this school is average, because I used to go to this school before I moved. They have really good teachers and the student body is great. - Katie Bassett -
There is a new administration in place not only at the high school, but also in the district office. These changes have been positive for our students, parents, and community. There is still much work to be done, but we are moving forward now in a positive direction. Parents need only contact the school if they want to volunteer or if they have any concerns.
When we moved to Hamilton County, Florida from North Carolina. We saw the ratings on line and were scared to move. The school is a nice looking school with a great athletic department however academics left a lot to be desired. Our county in N.C. only had A plus schools. We opted to put our children in the neighboring County H.S. Is it the School Board, the lack of parental involement, are the teachers hands tied? What seems to be the problem? We have several neighbors who also send kids accross the county line. What can we do as concerned citizens do to help out the school. Sincerely, Cheryl Beaty
I attend this school now and i can say that this school has a lot of spirit and is a good place to go to school and i will love to continue my middle school and also my high school education here at hchs.After that all i can say is.............Go trojans! love,jamee'
they set the classes up for the children with one class in one building and the next class across the campus and then when the child is late they give him TOZ. They need to keep the middle school classes in the middle school building. One teaacher wants the problems wored out in details but if the child uses more than one sheet of paper they are punished because it takes more TREES for the paper. They need to teach more history, math and that will help the child in the future instead of all the other stuff they are pushing down the children's throats.
This school praises itself on 'quality education', yet has only 10 dedicated teachers that I can think of that actually stay. The rest leave. It can hardly support the number of students in it, and safety is a minimal.
This is not a good school they do not have enough teacher. This whole school is in a mess and it seems as if no one cares.
This high school is in turmoil. I will grant you that there are a few dedicated individuals on staff but student services are abysmal.
the old school is in horrible condition, but the new school is almost complete, and with ensure safety.
