35 Parent Reviews for Hammond High School

It has fights and drama, the teachers don't care about you the students are bullies there's crowded hallways and people can't mind their own business or mind their manners. There only a few good teachers. Other then that my two years at Hammond High were horrible

Hammond has great teachers that are dedicated to keep their students engaged and challenged. Unfortunately the majority of the student body are kids that are rude, disrespectful, and immature.

I would recommend this school to students who are self-motivated to succeed and have a great desire to get involved. It is possible to be very successful at Hammond, but you can't expect the teachers to do it all for you. If you love school spirit and are avid in attending sporting events and shows, ...  Read more
