I'm 37 years old...I also went to Hammonton high school. Now, my daughters is in this school and my 8 year old is in the Elementary school. In all honesty, my kids love their schools and that says a lot coming from a 16 yr old. High school is a hard time for a kid and Hammonton has always been different in that sense. A great sense of community, and sure...pride. And that shows through in our children, parents, community and teachers. It has nothing to do with thinking we are the best but it does say something when people from other towns want their children coming here. And just because you have one bad experience with one person, it isn't a reflection on this school, its students or the faculty. Its even worse if no one says anything because the school faculty, ie principals, want to know about these things. I'm a parent and former student, current resident. I've had my moments with some teachers but problems don't get rectified unless you speak. And any issue I've ever had with my children or teachers, have always been heard and managed. Never pushed aside. -Christina D.

Coming from an actual student from Hammonton High School (not a parent who only knows the scratchings of what actually is occuring in the high school) I feel that it is a very enjoyable place to be. Of course, it has it's flaws, what school doesn't? But being class president for three years, i think i know the way things work around here. It's very laid back and the staff as well as the classes, are very enjoyable. As for the morale, Hammonton has always been a very unique place. Obviously we're not the best, but some people give us that label that we think we are? Not once have I heard a student or faculty member say 'We are perfect and don't have to change anything' So that's coming from nowhere. Hammonton is a great school. Go Devils!

I am really disappointed in this school. After three years of hoping things would change I give up. Hammonton people live in a box. They are under the impression that their school is the best, everything they do is the best, oh and that their football team is the best. What a joke! The academics could be good if the teachers would communicate with the parents and they could get over this 'if you don't have a Hammonton name you will not be treated as human' thing. And as for the football team, the coach doesn't know football from his behind. Fortunately for Hammonton they don't have to play any real competition and when they do they don't show up. But that is just an example of how the Hammonton mentality, 'We are perfect and don't have to change anything,' will get them, great schools rating of 4. Pitiful!

My child went to H.H.S her freshman year, and enjoyed it. She went to E.H.T.H.S. her sophomore year and disliked it immensely. I even disliked it. She is now a Junior and is enrolled back into Hammonton and loves it. I wouldn't want her anywhere else.

the staff at this school has an elitist attitude that is not benefical towards its student body. There is little diversity here and very little tolerance of diversity.

The PRIDE program at Hammonton High School is a great program that I wish was shown more credit and had a better reputation. My daughter went from straigh F's to straight A's in the matter of a couple marking period. This program at Hammonton High School has saved my daughters academic life.

Very disappointed in the quality of the teachers, and the people who run this school. If you are FROM Hammonton and get good grades, you will most likely succeed. If not, do not look here for a quality education.

I really dislike the lack of communication between parents and teachers. Sometimes I will email my students teacher, and not get a response for almost 3 weeks.

I love Hammonton High School. We have an excellent science department,pretty good math and english departments, a fair social studies department, but poor music and language departments. Our sports teams are decent; they could be better if more money and consideration was put towards other sports besides football. Besides this, the school runs like butter.
