This is a school in a low income area and they need more resources: books, technology, arts programs, more sports, etc. It is sad that we have to have a snack bar to have toilet paper and other supplies. HIgher education is not important to many here. They focus on technical schools and jobs rather than 4 year college resources.

I think Hamilton High School is an average school that does somethings right but could use improvements in other fields. The teachers are top quality and eager to help you succeed and make you college ready but the school comes up short for other aspects such as sports, diversity, and facilities.
Hamilton High School has one goal and that is preparing its students for the future. At Hamilton High School, the faculty and teachers are dedicated to helping each student reach their full potential. Our Principal cares about each student and tries to encourage everyone daily. Hamilton High School has had many successful graduates and also has had many students that have tested with a 30 or better on their ACT scores. Hamilton High School is ranked high among schools in our area for academic achievements. HHS comes from a long history of proud alumni. The staff at the school takes safety seriously. We have drills and also hold assembly to discuss safety concerns. We feel completely safe at HHS.
