South Hamilton Community School District Reviews
I've gone to South Hamilton since the eighth grade and I think it's definitely a good school! Our student body is really close. We don't really have cliques. We all bond together in our grade and can be friendly with everyone. We offer a lot of classes that actually teach you what you need to know. (Checkbooks, credit card fraud, taxes, etc) Our student body is very involved with sports activities and we all love cheering on the Hawks! Our school is very safe, with many drug patrols, security cameras, and a police officer patrolling. One of the few complaints that I have is that our school looks horrible. Although that all is just temporary. Our food is garbage, and our school laptops are so high security that you about can't google the word "laptop" because it filters out the word lap. No joke. All in all a good school. They/we just try to be "too good".
I think that South Hamilton is a good school. There has been a lot of issues there. There is a lot of bullying that goes on even though they say it is a no tolerance bullying school. But the teachers are very supportive and kind. The teachers care for the students and always listen. There is a lot of popular favoritism in the school and I do not think that is correct. I feel that I would like that to change because the popular people or the people that have the right last name are the people who are favored.
I think South Hamilton is a decent school. The teachers are tolerable, and you get a good education if you pay attention and be sure to ask questions. The guidance counselor is extremely supportive and understanding, and most people are helpful.
