Not too bad but not the greatest as well. There are many flaws that this school has. The administration is terrible in my opinion due to the new rules that were enforced. The bathrooms are terrible; there are a couple of stalls that have holes on the wall and you can see the person in the next stall. The parking space the school has is miserable; it takes me around half an hour to get out of the parking lot. There are some staff that are racist or sexist, or both! There are some decent staff on campus but it is not balanced. The halls ways are overcrowded along with the classrooms as well. It takes me the whole 5 minutes passing periods to get to one hall to the other. Many rude and racist students are here as well, but i do not care because I am a minority and I am proud.

I am so happy I attended Hamilton High School. There are unlimited extracurricular activities/clubs to connect with other students and the teachers are the BEST! If you are one of those students that like to take advanced courses, then Hamilton should be your choice. They have more AP courses than any other high school in Chandler.
During the four years I spent as Hamilton High School, I built more relationships than I have ever had over the course of my life. I met many new people, some of which I can call close friends, while also developing strong academic relationships with a variety of my teachers. Overall, Hamilton High School is a school that I would highly recommend to anyone that is interested. Go Huskies!
