I attend this school and I thin k it's great. We recently won an award for behind one of the greasest school in the world, only five other schools in the world won this award. We have great teachers and helpers. We even have a program called Z.A.P. Which stands for zeroes aren't permitted. When students don't do there homework they have to go " Log into ZAP" they do it and have to finish there homework before the end of the day. They also have a new, modern building with lots of great technology. HMS is just a fun place to be.

My stepdaughter attended Hastings Middle School 2006 - 2008 and had a horrible experience. In her words it was a waste of her time. She felt like they were teaching to the lowest common denominator and then some. She also was appalled at the level of bullying that went on unchecked. Granted she is a very smart and motivated student but most of her friends had similar opinions. She begged us to keep her out of the public high school and fortunately we were in a position to accommodate her. I am so glad we did. She is having a great high school experience and has thanked us repeatedly for being proactive on her behalf. If at all possible avoid this school unless of course your child is a football standout or a cheerleader. I am told that if that is the case you shouldn't have any problems.
