I have greatly enjoyed my time at Hamilton High School thus far. The school has many different "Small Learning Communities" (SLC's) which creates a very diverse campus. I belong to the Music & Preforming Arts SLC at Hamilton and this program has helped shape me into the person I am becoming today. The students in this program and all of the other programs are very talented and all have unique talents and skill sets. Many people who attend Hamilton go on to be professional actors, singers, and entertainers. I feel that my school is unique because of the diverse and talented student body who have personally made my high school experience amazing!
Review Alexander Hamilton Senior High School
In general, Hamilton is a great school and has many great qualities such as its diversity. The students possess many different ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, but most importantly everyone is accepting of everyone. Also, the education is great and the teachers and staff are very welcoming. Another thing worth mentioning is that Hamilton has many small learning communities including; Humanities, Math Science Medical (MSM), BIT, and Communication Arts. These programs are specialized and attention is given to the particular field of that program. For example, the music and performing arts academy is a really good program with various opportunities in many disciplines, such as; choral music, dance, orchestra, jazz band, theater, and stage tech etc. In addition, there is a great social and educational environment as well as many clubs and sports teams to join. For these reasons, Hamilton is a great school.
As a graduate from The Academy of Music and Performing Arts at Hamilton High School, I could not have asked for a better experience and education. The Magnet helped me in every way with my education as well as with my self exploration through performing arts. I learned so many life skills through the Music Academy and could not have asked for better people to be surrounded by!
