Hamilton High School provides an involved and rigorous learning environment that allows anyone to thrive.
There is a solid amount of AP and Dual Enrollment that can provide an opportunity to earn college credit and be challenged to think at a higher level. There is a balance between STEM and Humanities subjects that ensures a well-rounded education.
Along with academics, HHS offers a wide variety of clubs and activities that involve vast groups of the student body. Clubs include the normal student government and service groups, but also have other clubs like a GSA and Women's Group. The music, art, and theater departments are highly active in the school.
The teachers and staff genuinely care about students and take the time to get to know them. On many occasions in my four years at HHS, teachers have gone above and beyond to help kids learn.

Hamilton High School has a terrific reputation of making sure all of their students reach their full potential. Teachers are always willing to stay after school to offer extra help to students who are behind and/or are confused. The teachers, along with the principal and vice-principal, work hard to create a strong relationship with all the students. The counselors make a noticeable effort to support students who are financially unstable, have a poor home life or are simply stressed out. The office is always kind to the students, parents and other visitors and will try to give as much information as possible.
Lots of classes, and activities to choose from. There's countless little clubs, with some activity going on nearly every day. We have Band, Choir, and many different sports going on all year. Numerous AP and Dual Credit courses are offered, which gives you a jump start on college. Great place overall!
