Hampden Charter School of Science Reviews

Private school education at a free public school

By , a Parent on

What an incredible school. As a parent I can't believe someone would complain about discipline and safety of our children. In a time where many urban schools are dealing with violence and the lack of security, HCSS is a breath of fresh air. I haven't mention the wonderful education, caring teachers and the extremely dedicated coaches. Teachers take time to call, visit and discuss your child's success, struggles and plans towards an education path that leads directly to college. My daughter not only loves her school but is extremely proud to represent such an institution.

The school is strict to the excessive and focuses on discipline rather than education. Extreme punishments such as suspensions and expulsions are given much too easily. As a parent, I'd like to see my child have a good time in school as well as learn what he needs to. This school did not meet my expectations.
