Hamilton is great in a lot of ways! They offer the most AP classes of any public school in Arizona, the class sizes are relatively small for such a large student body, and the administrative staff really cares about the students. School activities are run smoothly and usually without hiccup. There are hundreds of different clubs and classes for any and all interests, and for the most part there is little judgment from other students (it is a high school though after all :)) I bumped down a star because Hamilton has 4,000 students. This makes it difficult for anyone to be highly ranked because everyone who is taking 8+ AP classes every day will be above you even if they’re failing half. That and the student body has no school spirit whatsoever, unless they’re in student government and they have to act like they do. But overall, Hamilton is a good place to be. I have learned so much in my years here, and I believe I am fully prepared for college because of my time at Hamilton.

My thoughts on Hamilton High School is that its simply marvelous! It provides hundreds of educational opportunities for every single student in the school. The staff treats the students exponentially well, I've never had a bad experience at Hamilton High School, its extremely diverse and as a bonus its a inside school meaning most classes do not require you to walk in side its a campus like structure to protect us from the blistering hot Arizona hot which can be unbearable!
This is my first year in highschool, and so far i’m liking it. It’s not perfect because it’s difficult getting us to a new school and school work. There are a lot of students, so the halls are crowded, but everyone is respectful and accept others for who they are. My teachers are really supportive and helpful, and the lunch staff is just great. The food is amazing here and there’s a variety that I love. The classes are so far easy the first year, and im looking forward to the rest of my highschool years here!
