Below is the link to the Hempstead and West Hempstead School District's site. Consider giving them a call. You could ask about violence, education, ask for a tour, etc.
I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.
Wishing you the best of luck,

The best source I have found to compare school districts and the schools within them is http://www.GreatSchools.net. On this site you will find the courses offered, testing results, per capita expeditures for students, etc.
Another site to check is the Newsday education for the School Report Cards: http://schools.newsday.com/long-island/
Please let me know if these sites are helpful to you and if they help to put your mind at ease! Of course, if you are thinking about moving, please let me assist you in the sale and purchase of your new home.
