Not too bad

As long as you know what you want out of the school, you’ll do fine. It’s a matter of which crowd you get into and what kind of environment you surround yourself with. It’s not always ideal to take the bus to school because the transport centre is where most of the bullying and the fights happen. Plus it’s just a negative atmosphere overall at the transport centre. But the leadership opportunities are great there. The teachers haven’t always been the best but there are tons of learning opportunities and learning resources that are great. I would recommend taking a language as usually they get to go overseas. Even the arts department get to go overseas usually. Scholarship opportunities are great here too as they prepare you well in this area. Again, it’s really about who you surround tous with at the end of the day that makes up pretty much most of your high school experience. Students here usually hate our school but at the end of the day, most of us are usually grateful that we go here instead of a terrible school like most of the ones in Hamilton.

Not organised. Very very poor communication, struggle to get messages and notices out have to rely on friends to share the message around. 90% of teachers suck at teaching, give up on students or explain things badly. Due to full class sizes of 31 kids teachers don’t know whats best for each student and may not even bother learning their name. Not many opportunities for students especially junior students as its all aimed at the seniors and too many students in the school. Messy facilities, toilet paper, trash everywhere. However we do have a good selection of classes and options that meet every students interests. We also have a good selection of sports however I signed up for a team and still haven’t heard back from the teacher no information. Schoolwork is repetitive and boring no motivation to go to school. Also lots of drama 24/7 that teachers don’t deal with.

Hghs is in a good location, centre of town close to the Hamilton Lake, bus centre and town. I enjoy going to town afterschool with my friends even if I don’t like them to get frozen cokes.

Very bad

Pretty average school with great opportunities for leadership. As there’s no boys, there is no competition for girls trying to get into sport team/student council against male counterparts. School has many different subjects which you can take and many many extra curricular activities for student to meet new people etc.. This is quite a good school, however, the school guidance councillors and nurse are not helpful at all. Not to mention the foul toilets and changing rooms which need a good air out and deep clean. Bullying also seems to be quite a big problem which never seems to be fixed. Other than those things, this school is cool as, especially the yearly ‘shows’ collaborated with hamilton boys high.

Good if you know what you want

Some teachers are absolute once-in-a-lifetime gems, some have much too big of an ego and are very condescending to their students. Many opportunities to grow and develop your skills, but you must have to choose to want them and force yourself into the effort needed to succeed - they won’t hold your hand and will scarcely encourage you until you’ve already succeeded. Fights frequently occur with no where near enough restriction or punishment for offenders and bullies. Great academics, incredible sports and talented yet often underfunded arts department. Recently changed to remove demeaning names from courses, slowly becoming more forward-thinking. Could use work on supporting minorities within the school.

Strongly Discourage

Poor educating from majority of teachers however a select few are brilliant. The ones that lack educational skill, 9/10 just decide to give up on a student or get agitated when they cannot grasp a concept the first couple times around. Gross behaviour from students in school and in public. Always drama among the girls 24/7 with no resolving of problems on the school’s behalf. On top of this, bullying is very common. Spotlight is always on the rugby girls and leave next to no attention to other sport codes. I know a total of 2 students of the very many I know that genuinely enjoy attending class at Hamilton Girls High School everyday. Teachers can be disrespectful sometimes but if a student were to retaliate there would be harsh punishment. There is poor communication and promotion of extra curricular activities also. All round poor experience and I have never felt welcome and have never felt I was given the best tools or help to set me up for success at this school.
