  •  Highlights


    The following school highlights are just a few of the things that make Hampton High School an amazing place to learn and grow! These four items should allow you to see the rigorous learning, diverse experiences, and supportive culture that exists in our school. In Henry County Schools, we believe in giving every student a high quality, world-class education and we believe these highlights display our passion and commitment to do just that.



    HHS picStudent Outcomes
    HHS regularly assesses its programs and course offerings through the evaluation of our CSIP and the data points used to evaluate its effectiveness. HHS has focused not just on offering more AP courses, but on students of all nationalities having access to and successfully completing courses and sitting for exams. HHS was honored as an AP Honor School in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Capping this phenomenal growth, HHS was highlighted during the 2020-2021 school year with a 2021 AP Honor School Award due to the number of AP courses offered and the success rate of our students taking the AP test and scoring a proficient or higher score. A Hampton high school student, Kaleb, was quoted as saying, “My AP courses give me a higher level of work to deep dive into content information and further my education. I feel my AP experience is preparing me for classes in college. I am successful in my classes because of the relationships I build with my teachers and how they push me.” Additionally, HHS continues to see tremendous growth in our End Of Course (EOC) and End of Pathway Assessment (EOPA) scores.  
                                                                                                              
    Prior to the pandemic, HHS saw growth in all four major content areas (Science, Math, English, and Social Studies) and our CTAE courses, in many instances outpacing similar schools. Our average daily attendance hovers around 94%, which we feel is a direct influence of our positive culture and climate. Using data to drive instruction and student opportunities is the highlight of our CSIP and the results highlighted above. This laser light focus further supports our students academically as they strive to achieve even more heights through their extracurricular achievements.​Using data to drive instruction and student opportunities are the highlight of our CSIP and the results highlighted above.

    HHS recognizes that providing rich and engaging courses allows students to maximize their growth potential. First, we ensure our teachers are prepared for the content courses they are assigned to teach. Secondly, our master schedule team ensures access to the courses needed and requested by students. Thirdly, our leadership team develops within the CSIP a plan of professional development that supports teacher growth that will further facilitate student academic growth.

    For the 21-22 school year, HHS will follow a block schedule that allows for a Ninth Grade Academy and opportunities for students to accelerate and remediate their learning. Below highlights are the course offerings that all of our students have currently and will continue to have access to for the upcoming school year.

    HHS picClimate and Culture
    Since its opening in the 2014 - 2015 school year, Hampton High School (HHS) has strived to instill in our students the values of persistence, commitment, and teamwork through active participation in our successful academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs. Students and parents agree that options for students to excel academically, athletically and extracurricularly provide students opportunities to be well-rounded, prepared for whatever course they take in life, and stand out on college and job applications. More importantly, taking on additional responsibilities helps students cultivate the skills that are essential in life. Several students stated during an interview, “It’s important to de-stress and focus on something besides academics. Participation in clubs has sharpened my communication skills, fostered creative thinking, and taught me how to work effectively with other people.”

    Over the past two years, HHS has increased its focus on supporting both students and teachers through the implementation of a Social Emotional Learning (SEL) program. This in-depth program focuses on improving student attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions. Furthermore, HHS is proud to introduce a Ninth Grade Academy for the 21-22 school year that will provide rising ninth graders with the opportunity to grow the soft skills necessary to be even more successful as high school students and emerging members of the Hampton community.

    Furthermore, HHS has seen a decrease in student referrals and an increase in student engagement through rigorous and focused staff development, implementation of the SEL program, and continuous community support. HHS’s focus on its Culture and Climate to ensure student success is only possible through development of a strong Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP) that keeps all of our stakeholders laser focused.

Most of all, many of our student-athletes graduate with academic and/or athletic scholarship offers from colleges and universities each year. More Importantly, HHS has had a banner year athletically during a pandemic when athletic participation has seen a decline. We have won region championships in Softball, Boys Cross Country, Wrestling (Duals and Traditionals), Cheerleading, Tennis (Boys and Girls), and Baseball.
