Hempstead is a fantastic school with many great and new improvements. Our school actually has air conditioning, while some others in the district do not, and we have even more additions and improvements opening up this school year such as the new auditorium and music department, new gym and our practice turf has just been redone within the past 2 years. Students are very prideful and work great together as a Mustang family. If you're new to the area, Hempstead is the way to go.
There were a lot of issues 3 years ago when they redid the school zones. There were a lot of fights between the students, to the point where they had to have special classes for the students. It's improved since then, but not by much.
