  • Hammond School should be proud of what it does for those few that it is interested in educating. If you are interested in this school be sure to talk to a lot of people and do your homework. My children started here as A/B students and are now C-. The individual help from teachers is limited to after school hours. Management at the Middle School Principal/Headmaster levels is weak, at best. If your child is self-motivated towards academics this is a great school. If your family is wealthy enough that your children do not need to be seek individual success this is a great school name to have on the HS diploma. Overall my idea of the education provided at Hammond is that it is over priced and there are many places where you can improve your bang for your buck.
