I am currently a senior at Hamilton high school. So far being at Hamilton has been a really great experience for me. I have gotten to meet many different kinds of people from many different places all over the world. Being at Hamilton has helped me find who i am and who i wanna be. The staff and security are very supportive.

Hamilton High is not a bad school at all. For example the teachers are very friendly and make you feel welcomed it's just some of the students that go there. Last year, my freshmen year, tons of people got into fights and kids talked back to the teachers very rudely. What I'm saying is it's some of the students that go there that ruin the fun in the school and they mostly tend to be the ones who don't care about learning anything. I would choose this school again because like I said before the teachers are very kind they make you want to learn. I just feel like this school could do better with more rules but no uniforms! They should just have more strict rules especially with those hall way skippers. They do have tons of sports and clubs to join so that's pretty amazing to me. I didn't join anything freshmen year but I'm planning on joining more clubs or sports this upcoming year. This school isn't so bad it's just the students who decide to give it a bad reputation by acting out.
