Hamilton Community Schools Reviews

Hamilton Community schools is a strong knit community, with much support from students and staff. Most programs are funded appropriately and provided students with an overall sustainable educations with some opportunities for outside connections and networking. The staff shows passion towards their teaching and in helping students in all areas. The opportunities for students are not all well funded but other experiences guide students in their passions and interests (which may help them decide their future career). The elementary schools and the middle school are overcrowded and not as organized. In the recent years many changes in academics, structure, and overall school culture haven't all been accepted well, but may need time to see if changes were effective. Overall bias towards certain academic courses and resources, they are not diverse for students with different interests and there are many limitations on these opportunities.

Being at Hamilton has been a great experience. The community is tightly knit and everyone is always supporting. Being part of the basketball team that always has each other's back is special. Not only do your teammates have your back, but the entire community has your back. At games, the stands are filled with the entire Hamilton Community there to cheer you on, and that is something special. When you put on your jersey, you play for the entire Hamilton Community and not just the high school. Hamilton has the community feeling not only within extracurriculars, but also within the classroom. Teachers go out of their way to talk to you about your day and week to check in on you and make sure you're doing well. Teachers are very willing to set their time aside to talk to you about your grades, health, relationships, just about anything.
Going through the Hamilton School district all my life, I have seen it grow and change as time has gone on. Coming into the high school, the culture and community was non existent and it was hard to get along with everyone. Now that it is my senior year, the school is focusing more on community. This is good to see that they finally see a problem and want to change it. But, they are just telling us to be happy. You can't just jump into the "be happy" stage before finding the source of the unhappiness. Along with that, administration has put new things in place that irritate students. But, the community has come together and become better. The teachers are great and classes are helpful. I have only found that AP classes help with college readiness.
