    Academics: At Hamilton High School the academics are amend some of the best in the nation. We have been recognized by numerous school reports, and given countless awards. However, some of the academic programs could use some revitalizing. Many of the programs can be very one sided, and directed towards a single view point. I would like to have it more geared towards having a non biased opinion on the matter so that we,the students, have the opportunity to develop our own opinion.

    Student Culture & Diversity: The student culture and diversity can be one of two things, either very negative, and self consumed or very optimistic and encouraging. I feel that Hamilton has two vastly different types of students, those who don't care or think about their future, and those who are utterly consumed with their future. The environment is very brutal at times, with peer pressure being a large problem among students. However, you can also find one that is very accepting of different opinions, races, religions and other things. I think that you can find any type of environment at Hamilton depending on what your focus is.

    Extracurriculars: The Extracurricular activities at Hamilton are beyond astounding. There are always so many opportunities to get involved with different clubs depending on your interests. Many of the people in the clubs are very welcoming and happy to have someone with common interests, as well as motivation to dedicate their time.

    Overall Experience: Throughout my four years attending Hamilton I have had a wide range of experiences. From learning to deal and collaborate with my peers, to learning how to buckle down and push through some of my hardest academic achievements. The atmosphere at school can be very judgmental at times, but it can also be very welcoming and lighthearted. My overall experience while attending Hamilton High School has been great, regardless of minor experiences.

    Teachers: The teachers of Hamilton High School are by far the best I have ever had throughout my years of learning. Not only do they care about how well you are doing with the curriculum, but they are also warmhearted and very understanding towards personal issues. The staff members at Hamilton High School push you to excel, often times in areas you were not aware you were skilled in, and prepare you heavily for the college campus. If you are willing to put effort into their classes, they will never fail to teach you something new.
