I absolutely hate Hamilton Southeastern High School ; the sports, the students, the teachers, the administration. The only thing I can thank HSE for is a good education. If you chose to attend/send your child to this school they will receive a great education, but will go through hell to get it. A majority of the students come from wealthy homes and bring an heir of entitlement to the school. Many of the students do not challenge themselves and care about their academics. Very few reach to attend a prestigious college, most just settle for IU. The teachers are rude and short with the students, for the most part. They all believe they are selfless, gracious, and understanding, but with one mistake, you are on their bad side and can expect to get rude comments thrown at you regularly. I firmly believe the teachers gossip as much as the students which adds to a sense of unwelcomeness at the school. Furthermore, the school has no emphasis on the arts or academic teams as all focus is diverted to sports. The school has 3500 kids, yet the speech and debate team is composed of 7 students, arts are looked down upon as a road to unemployment, and anything that is different (not football, soccer, baseball) is guaranteed no support or recognition. I am sorry if you are stuck going to this ultra conservative school. Try to be yourself, it is only 4 years. Do not let them squash your sense of self and creativity.
