I am currently a student at Hamtramck High. From what I experience, the school and staff are excellent! The teachers go above and beyond to help kids as much as possible. These are the type of teachers that care about or education. They are the type that are willing to stay after school just to help us students if we need. The problem is many of our fellow classmates are ignorant and careless. Some of us don't take advantage of all the opportunities that are given to us. All the chances that are given to us to be successful are taken for granted. Therefore I think it is unfair that the whole school, including the great teachers and other staff members are punished and criticized due to the lack of effort from some careless students.
This school has a unique environment that can not be imitated. Yes there are students that give the high school a bad reputation. However, the administration is working hard to improve the school and is always trying to be ahead of the curve in implementing new strategies. to help the students achieve.
I am a teacher here and i have to say this is a school that teaches kids to live their life to the fullest. its fun yet educating at the same time. i highly recommend this school to any high school student.
I substituted at this school and it is by far the worst school i have ever been too!!! it reminds me of the movie east side high. The students have no respect for their authorities...They yell/curse in the hallways. They have food fights...And work...???? It will be safe to say, they shouldn't even be in high school... Dont send your kids to this place/zoo!!! not a learning environment!!!
This school is very incompetently managed. The administration of the district is more interested in raising money than the well-being of the students. Safety is definitely an issue at this school for students. There are some great teachers at this school but they usually quit within 1-2 years. Teachers only work as a team to keep themselves employed and to get undeserved raises. You're better off with a charter school.
