Wade Hampton High School Band Program

High School is a milestone --- the high school years are some of the most pivotal years in a child's life.  Often, it is a time in which their character is sculptd and their life goals are developed.  We can all agree that we want our children to become successful people, but this does not happen by accident.  Students need to participate in something that sparks that type of motivation.

Being a part of our band program could be one of the best decisions you and your student have ever made.  In the Hampton Disstrict One Band Progra, it is not just about teaching music --- it's about teaching life skills.  Out students learn important things like discipline, perseverance, dedication and responsiblity.
