They are full of teachers who care a lot about their students and are very entertaining! The teachers make learning fun! But, there is not much diversity and the school is very segregated. The school does not prepare you for the ACT or college applications.

I used to go to a carter school and transferred over to Hamilton High school. Hamilton high school was defiantly very different from my old school. I was a new student but I made many new friends within the few months I been there. I was quiet person and now, I find myself very out going. I created many friendships and close bonds at the new school which makes me enjoy being in high school. I also like how Hamilton has block schedules that only include four classes. Even though there are only four classes per semester it is still complex but manageable. I like the environment at Hamilton High School, I'm sure there are flaws but every school has there own flaws but Hamilton is still growing.
I attended the Hamilton School District from kindergarten until my junior year. The teachers and staff are very friendly and they tried to create a safe and secure atmosphere for learning. The curriculum was challenging but not overly challenging and I felt like I gained a lot of the classes. The block scheduling was beneficial as far as only having to focus on four classes for one semester vs seven all year long. There is an advisement period, which is basically a study hall where are the teachers assist you with homework and make sure that you're doing something productive. There are also plenty of extracurricular activities to get involved in. I really enjoyed my experience with the Hamilton School District.
