Hamilton Township School District (Hamilton) Reviews

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.
I would say I had the best experience of the Hamilton school district when I was in Elementary school. The teachers were good and I was able to learn a lot and meet many new people. As I went through the schools though, that is when my experience went down. The quality of the facilities went down while the rowdiness and rudeness of the kids went up. To help fix this problem it would be best if the 17 elementary schools were consolidated to five while the three middle schools are consolidated into two and the high schools are consolidated into one. This will cut down the administrative cost while allowing the teachers to be paid more.
