Hamilton Community Schools Reviews

I've enjoyed my 4 years at Hamilton, although there are many things I would change. Firstly the teaching staff is not the greatest, there are some teachers who act like they hate their job. It's hard to be motivated as a student when you know your teacher doesn't want to be there as well. Secondly I am upset with the administration and principals. The principals and athletic director do not handle situations properly and leave high schoolers susceptible to bullying. There's been multiple instances where only kids in sports have been suspended, while kids not in sports walk away with no scratch on their back. It is somewhat ridiculous to me. It sounds like I have some major complains, but honestly hamilton isn't a completely horrible school to be at. The friends you make can last a lifetime.

The community surrounding Hamilton is identical in race, religion, sexual orientation, and political opions. While the school provides adequite academics, it can be a challenging school to feel comfortable in.
Mostly good, teachers/education staff is good, but the administration is awful. Probably has the worst leadership in the state on the higher levels. Very inexperienced and just ignorant.
