I love Hamilton High School! I feel 100% safe at this school and all of the teachers really care about their students. They push you and challenge you but are also always willing to help out and provide assistance. There is a great school culture and everyone is very nice. There is also a very strong sense of community in this area, not only within this school district, but within the surrounding school districts. Everyone comes together in hard times and is always willing to help someone out.

I had a terrific childhood growing up in the Hamilton Community Schools! Not only do they pay less per student, and the teachers better than most on average, they still manage to save money each year! Yet providing the community with new tennis courts, football stadium additions, landscaping etc.

There are a lot of community and school groups to accommodate a variety of interest and ages some examples include, youth groups, boy/girl scouts, band/choir, swimming, football, baseball/softball, soccer, volleyball, golfing, basketball etc etc They are also very involved in the community sponsoring theater shows, golfing fund raisers and art is out there, fun night, dances etc,, to name a few!

I would recommend this school system to anyone looking for a small town feel with all the big city amenities!
Hamilton is a great school and a great community! Everyone is very kind and it's a very close-knit small school. The diversity in the school is not as great as it could be, but the academics are great and all the teachers are really invested in helping their students succeed in every way possible.
