    The entire staff is dedicated the school is well-maintained and the children are well-behaved. It's not perfect and there are other schools in Bham that are fine too but Hemphill is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stagnate Bham school system.

    My niece attends this school. She is very bright but needs to be challenged more. My niece has had very concerned and dedicated teachers. I am impressed with the cleanliness of the school. The office staff is pleasant and helpful.
