Alexander Hamilton Senior High School Reviews

Alexander Hamilton High School is a school that contains a myriad of resources for students who are college-bound and also has a great ethnic diversity aspect. Fulfillment Fund and Upward Bound are two non-profit organization that offers its services on campus that include one-to-one mentoring, college advising, and leadership opportunities from which I've greatly benefited from. I feel fortunate to attend a school that offers AP courses because not only do I love the challenge, but it is also eye-capturing to colleges! Although, I've found it a bit hard to develop that one-to-one relation with teachers- it seems that some do not enjoy their job. I think that there is a lot of discipline needed as there are often children who disrupt classes and many fights. I feel that as students, we do not have much of a voice as we are "children" or "under 18." Also, as a vegetarian, there are not many food choices offered to us by the LAUSD so I can't count on the school food.

Well, I am currently going into my junior year of high school. Alexander Hamilton High school has been pretty good to me so far! Something I personally really like about the school is how diverse it is and how socially involved everyone is. Whether it’s parents,students, staff, everyone is involved in their students/child’s life. Something I wish changed in Hamilton is the ability to have more AP art classes. Hamilton has been great to me so far, I hope the next two years do the same!
Alexander Hamilton High School is a great school, especially for those who join the SLC that matches their interests. Each SLC enables their students to be immersed in their field of interest with enthusiastic teachers. All classrooms are open for students during lunch and nutrition, therefore communication with teachers is always open for students. Our schools culture is very active both socially and politically. Restaurants and transportation are present just outside our campus. The school has also taken part of the walk outs in support of the students in Florida, allowing us to exercise our right of speech. Events as these bring bonding through out the school outside the classroom.
In the future I hope to see a growth in diversity as only two percent of the school is Asian. There is improvement and I can see this lacking slowly starting to disappear, and I know that Alexander Hamilton High is headed towards a brighter future with their students.
