  • No the students are either drug heads, stuck up, or alcohlics. Not many even try in school, just cheat. The teachers play favorites to the jocks. And people like me are left behind. Nothing about this school makes me want to graduate. I want to quit now.

  • Yeah the High School is better than the Middle School, but its still filled with all the kids who think they're better than everyone else, the kids who have more money than all the rest, just like the Middle School. 2002 is when I first started coming to Hamilton, yeah I had a lot of friends in the beginning, but that all changed when I started playing softball in 7th grade,suddenly it was like all the kids that were my "friends" just turned their backs on me like I did something to them. All I did was try-out for the softball team and I made it. When I did I was so happy but one day at practice is when it all began. No one would help me and my sister practice before the games,they left me too, and that was just em brassing to us. The coach would not even let us play because the people on the team said that we were hardly at any of the practices,but we were there everyday we had practice, unless we had a doctor appointment, or something happened to one of our family members. But one girl on that team got to play every single game, but she was hardly at any of the practices because she was getting her haircut,nails done and blah blah blah. The kids on that team had a lot of money but me and my sister had money but not like they did. My mom spent like 800 dollars for the things we needed, and all that went down the drain. The people on the softball team just ruined my sister's and my softball career. So I do not recommend to play any sports at Hamilton unless you want that career ruined.

  • I never really went to the high school, but I'm not really doing this as a review for the school itself; but for it's students. I've never met any better people in my life than some of the students at Hamilton High School. I left right after the fifth grade, and now I'm in ninth. I've heard that alot of things have changed for the worst since I left, but I still want to express how much I love everyone there. I guess that's it, really....
