Being a student, I think the Hamburg Area School District in general is a good place with oppertunity, but overall, I am having most meaning in the Hamburg Area Middle School. The teachers really cared about me, even though they annoyed the heck out of me while caring. The music association is my REALLY big thing. The music instructors, Mrs. Dowd, Miss Reimer, Ms. Saw, Mr. Peitch, and Dr. Ryan work their hardest to make sure that their students are satisfied with the music association. The choirs give big oppertunities for solos and such. The orchestras also give big oppertunities as well. I played double bass since 3rd grade, and am still supported as I go along through middle school. Middle schoolers are also able to join the high school musical every year, because they stopped doing the junior productions. That also gives more things to do. The schools have been doing a better job in general at having a variety introduced other than sports. One thing they could work on is music tolerance, though. When we only have rehearsel one day a week, the teachers should have tolerance with something and schedule a test retake on a day that has an activity that is more than once a week.
