Hamilton Township School District (Hamilton) Reviews

I like that my school district is very diverse. However, I feel that we need to work on making our three high schools in our district more united. In the club that I was a starting member of my sophomore year of High School, push for a more united school district. This club is called Hamilton NEWS. This club clashed the three public highschools in my school district. Being a student at Nottingham High School shows how different races and cultures clash for the better. However making the whole Hamilton Township unite is no doubt amazing. This past year, Hamilton N.E.W.S even showed the Elementary Schools in our district what we are all about. Having the power to do this with my Vice Principle Dawn White, alongside with my fellow peers is absolutely amazing because although we go to different schools, we all have so much in common. We are Kind, We are Different, We are Human.

My experience at Hamilton West was unique, but entertaining. The school is very diverse and has an amazing curriculum. High School would be awful if you weren’t involved in any sports or clubs. I am currently playing 3 varsity sports and am involved with multiple clubs. Getting involved helps you socially, so my social skills and confidence have very much improved, so I would say my high school experience was great and one of a kind. Nothing needs to change, I think our school is honestly a good school.
My son is in elementary school in Hamilton. Overall, the teachers at Alexander and the administration are excellent. I am confident that my kids will receive a great education and recreational opportunities from the district. The biggest issue this district faces is that there are way too many schools — 23 to be exact. None of them are new and many lack basic safety features like window upgrades etc. they don’t have AC so when it’s hot, students are dismissed early. The budget goes towards staffing 23 schools when they should consolidate some of them and cut costs on payroll with teachers and administrators. While Hamilton is not the best in Mercer county, it’s not the worst. I think a B grade is a fair assessment and with anything, it’s what you put into it. However, schools are not a selling point for Hamilton township unlike neighboring areas.
