My experience at Hamilton High School has been average. It is not like the movies at all, but that is a good thing. High school comes with big responsibilities, but there is also stress and dead lines. the teachers were understanding and would help with many things, as corrections on essays, time to retake tests to improve grades and have workshops for us students who do not know how to complete a college application or scholarship and most importantly how to fill out the FAFSA.

Hamilton high tried to be an excellent learning experience. However, to achieve high test scores they cater to people who are not as smart. So, students who know the material are constantly bored and wishing it was more difficult. This also does not prepare you for college since college is difficult and does not care if everyone can complete work.
Hamilton high school is a secluded school. The small class sizes lead to getting into in depth discussion with your teachers and getting to know the material better. Although a small school can have many benefits it has its downfalls such as a cramped little band room and no lockers unless your in pe. The food has been getting alot better lately with new items being added to the menu.
