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!
What can I say? This place is amazing. I am currently taking classes as an undergrad freshman at the University of Cincinnati and working towards transferring from my Exploratory Studies major to the DAAP Fashion Design program. Ever since my first day of school started, The faculty and students have all been very welcoming to me as adjusting to my transition as a first-year and first-generation student. I also use various other campus resources, such as class office hours and academic coaching sessions, to aid in my journey to becoming a successful student. I knew from the very moment that I stepped foot on this campus I knew that it was the right choice and I cannot imagine attending any other university.
