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!
Hamilton Highschool is a good school, centered in the bitterroot valley, which makes us unique! There are many things to do outdoors and one of my favorite things about going to Hamilton a Highschool is the amazing opportunities that field trips provide. There as always been amazing resources when it comes to class field trips.
