Lake Hamilton School District Reviews

This district, like many others from the south, tends to focus more on sports than education. The administration needs to learn how to properly allocate the money that they have, and reevaluate what a school's priorities should be. This district also tends to forget about the arts, but it's gotten a little better since sophomore year. The Theatre/Fine Arts department gets next to nothing, while Choir gets zero funding. AP World students don't have textbooks, but the district does have a multi-million dollar arena and sports teams that get new uniforms every other year. Also, no one in the high school math department uses the Common Core workbooks the school provides, which is, what must be, thousands of dollars down the drain every year.

Great school! Fantastic English, Chemistry, Calculus and Statistics classes. Administration seem to tend to hire people who are connected to others in the school and the ways some rules are carried out are sexist. The track and cross country teams are amazing, the football team is poor. Not many AP classes given, but most are high quality. Normal and AP students are increasingly separated.
Lake Hamilton School District was home to me for 10 years! The faculty and academics are superb. I always felt very welcomed and very close to all of the administration. Without Lake Hamilton I would not be the person I am today! The academics are the best in the area, each teacher is determined to teach each student with commitment and passion!
