    Extracurriculars: There are club activities all the time. There's information posted on walls and students promote their clubs with information tables or during lunch

    Sports & Fitness: Participating in a sport at Hamilton is what you want to do as a student. The athletic facilities and coaches help you become the player you want to be.

    Health & Safety: Compared to places I've been and people I have seen going through rough time Hamilton is the best with cracking down on drug and alcohol abuse, and resources are always available and ready for anyone who is in need of them, and they also have the best nurse I have seen in the past three schools I have attended. Drug use and alcohol use is very low here, somewhat noticeable yes, but much less than I have experienced in the past two to three years. It's really safe, and there are plenty of security guards as well as school cops who work during all school hours.

    Overall Experience: The students tend to be more rude and mean, even though there are a good amount of those who aren't that way. The teachers are amazing, and really the experiences that I've had there this whole year I am thankful for, they helped show me that I can till make it, yes with harder work, but in the end it's all worth it. I've had amazing amounts of support from teachers to counselors alike and honestly it has saved me. I hope I will be graduating from this school, yet this may not occur due to housing issues coming up at the end of next year, yet I am still immensely grateful.

    Food: The cafeteria set up and cleanliness factor is very above excellent, the only thing that bothers me somewhat is the shortness of lunch, but I have come to understand due to scheduling issues it has to be that way, not just for students, but teachers as well. The menus are full of variety when it comes to food choice, yet some foods do not (to my personal taste) taste good, while others do taste excellent.
