At Hamilton High School the curriculum taught could at times become very repetitive although many of the teachers showed devotion and passion in their work. The environment is very friendly, staff was respectable and showed gratitude. They expect everyone to be their best and put 100% effort in shool work. They present many opportunities and resources which are able to help you succeed.

Good school but not equipped to address the needs of students that are academically advanced. I would not recommend students of really high caliber go to this school for lack of academic opportunities, higher level classes, qualified counselors, GPA calculation discourages too much advancement in academics, in-school AP classes are weighted whereas the more rigorous UWM classes are not which results in uneven class ranks, etc. Pretty much sucks the life out you if you are really gifted to the extent of being in the top 1% of the entire Country.
Hamilton highschool is a good school when you think about opportunity and a good future. They provide help for scholarships,college applications, psychology, and many more stuff that you may need. The sports and clubs are excellent especially when you get to choose one. The teachers are good help and they have their methods of helping us. The cafeteria is always clean and there's not much mess. Hallways are always been guarded by security guards who are also friendly when it comes to protecting the students and helping them find theirs classes and their buses after school. The students are the ones who play the part whether they want to succeed in life or be part of the rebel group.
