Excellent school. Both of my children attended. My yougest is in the 9th grade. They have the best overall teaching staff and I as a parent appreciate all they do for the students of HJH. GO REDRAMS!

Hamlet so far was my favorite school, mostly because there was no work. As long as you had a pulse you could pass an honors class without any problems. The current English teacher is a huge problem. I had her last year and all she did was sit behind her computer. If you send your child to this school, do Not let them take honors. The regular English class is where the learning is. There are kids dropping out of regular english to get into this ladies 'honors' class. It's just sad. Us at RSHS are struggling this year, most can't even use commas because the school is just standing by and letting this happen. The uniform policy is also ridiculous. It changes daily.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
