Hamilton High School has an incredibly upbeat social environment. They have an abundance of clubs and organizations, everything from Women's Group to Trivia Club. Not to mention the entire staff works hard to keep to school clean and inviting. The teachers are not only great at what they do but they are also inspiring to students. If I had to change one thing about the school it would be the lunch food, I wish that it was fresh and not all packaged, but what high school had amazing lunch food? Overall the school is awesome, especially for being so small.

I really enjoy attending Hamilton High School. I moved to Hamilton from Sandpoint, ID, where I went to Sandpoint High School my freshman year. The switch was pretty easy except for the usual challenges that come with moving. I really like my teachers and the classes the school offers. I also love the open campus option for lunch for everyone past freshman year. One more thing I like about the school is the option for two senior releases which means you can have two fewer classes. However, one thing I would change is the counselors, and how they focus too much on those who don't seem to try in school. Overall though, I love Hamilton High School. GO BRONCS!
Fantastic school with a quality teaching staff that is available to students before school, lunch, and after school for addition help! The vocal music program is spectacular! Wonderful extra and co-curricular programs. One of only a handful of schools in the nation that has the AdvancED Accreditation!
