LGBTQIA+ Community

At Hammond High School, we live our motto, “Where people are important”.  We believe ALL people are important.  We are committed to providing an educational and social environment that affirms and promotes an inclusive, equitable space which values diversity. Keep up on what is going on in the larger HCPSS Pride community at their website.


​LGBT Studies Course

We were the first school to run an LGBT Studies course in the fall of the 2022-2023 school year!  You can sign up to take this half credit social studies elective for next year!


HCPSS has in place comprehensive supports across all of our schools:
