Teachers were excellent and well educated in their specific classes/studies; most teachers (especially for AP classes) would dedicate hours of their free time to be available for their students to contact them or meet with them.
In terms of mental health/education department I felt like there was an extreme lacking. As a student who suffered from various mental illnesses (e.g.: generalized anxiety, depression, PTSD, anorexia nervosa, etc.) who actively sought help from the school social worker and counselor the most common result I got was a lecture on how high school and puberty was difficult for many teens and many suffered from some form of mental illness and that they simply had to "get over it". As an openly identifying trans man (female-to-male) the school counselor/social worker definitely lacked education in gender/sexuality spectrum and felt that the way I felt like I was treated by because of my open identification as a trans man was often neglected and ignored.
Having the opportunity to receive an education is amazing, and receiving it at Hamilton High School make everything all that better. The school strives to be safe, welcoming and safe. Some teachers are awesome, and the amount of friendships created is a great life experience. They have a variety of clubs that target academics, athleticism, morality among others. Alongside that, they offer plenty of sport choices, as well as academic classes. The amount of student athlete commitment- to universities and academic scholarships the students have received speaks about Hamilton.
