Hamilton City School District Reviews

My experience has been great at Hamilton High School. It normally gets looked down on but it has a lot to offer. There are CTE programs that help students get more involved in the field they want to be in. The teachers really care for their students and I really like how there are a lot of clubs to participate in. Something I would like to see at Hamilton High School is more diversity or activities that invite everyone to embrace their roots. I personally don’t even know half of the people in my grade and that is pretty sad because I have been with them for like 4 years. Overall, Hamilton High School is a good school!

The teachers really care about their students and work hard to see that they excel. I feel however, unless someone takes Honors or AP classes they probably won't be ready for college. It is a big leap. A way they could improve is to put more emphasis on the arts (visual, music, etc) and less on sports. The school spends so much money on athletics and other frivolous spending that they barely have any left for other areas. There is also an extremely strict dress code, especially on females I have noticed. While all facilities and resources are pretty top notch there should be more clubs and student activities considering Hamilton is such a large distract. I also wish that Hamilton would take bullying and harassment more seriously, thinking about the times we live in today. All bullies should be apprehended. Overall, if you make wise choices about the classes you take, you can earn a lot of college credit and be 100% prepared for the university of your choosing.
All the teachers I've had the pleasure of having are fantastic teachers! I couldn't have asked for better teachers. Hamilton gets a bad rap because it is a lower income city, but the staff really cares about the students education and their well being. Some of the students are rude and ill mannered, but thats not the schools fault. I have enjoyed all 12 years I've spent in Hamilton city schools and even though I complain about it sometimes I wouldn't go to any other school if I was given a redo.
