I have been a student in Hamilton since I was in kindergarten and I must say that this district treats all the students like family. Especially at my high school Steinert they do their to make sure we have a great atmosphere in school. One thing that I really admire about Hamilton Township schools is that we all work together as a unit. there so many intertwined organizations and clubs that really pulls together the different student bodies of each school and I love that because it makes everyone feel welcomed. I enjoy attending Steinert High School, the way I feel walking through those halls must be the same way Beyonce feels at the Grammys; there so much motivation. Though, I love my school, there are a few things that need to fixed. For example, my school has a little reputation of the students there being racist and I would be a clown if I said I didn't see it. It is not everyone but it still must be addressed. Other than that, I think HTSP is a great place to go to school!

Hamilton township school district always seems to researching how to get better and make positive change, but everything stays the same. The district has good intentions but falls short on execution. Our classrooms are full of Hamiltonians, which makes the school a little vanilla. It would be nice to have someone with new & different ideas for a change. I like performing arts and we have a lot of opportunities, however there is a lot of favoritism at my school.

For the most part my teachers have been supportive, but average. I'm a good student, but not really challenged. I would have liked more time with my guidance counselor to discuss my HS and college plan.
This district has a lot of problems such as teacher contracts and money-handling, but it could be worse. The one thing I don’t like about my high school, in particular, is the fact that some teachers are more concerned with doing just enough work to get paid rather than teaching the materials to the students. The school board can’t even give the teachers contracts, but they can purchase all new smart boards for almost every classroom. Teachers have stopped running clubs to stay united, and have stripped that experience from well-involved students. I tried my best to make the most out of this experience here in public schooling, but I am very excited to leave and actually learn in a positive environment.
