This school was ok. Not the best. My child is extremely smart, but has a small attention span. Especially when he learns things fast. His teacher was nice, but kept trying to tell me he had a medical problem because he couldn't pay attention to her the entire day. Its not for teachers to diagnose medical problems.

There are no challenges for the above average student. They have their share of concerned teachers but more of their share of teachers just there for the perfectly well behaved average students. If your child is outside the norm in any way they are treated as a inconvenience. I am moving outside the area to get to a better school. I am in disbelief at an 8 out of 10 rating given here. A 5 at most.

I think the above average students need to be challenged more. My child is above average in all of her subjects, yet she was given all the same work as the other children in her class and then when she finishes it quickly the teacher becomes upset. I think she should have to do the same work as others but also given something extra when she finishes too quickly. Some of the teachers at HES need to work on patience and need to think about how they would feel if it was their children being talked to. The school is overall great but a little work would help

I think this school has its advantages and disadvantages. The school is clean, has smaller class sizes, and does the best it can do with the funding they are given. However, I do think more needs to be done to ensure that every child is getting the attention they need. Some kids can learn at a faster rate than others. So much emphasis is placed on the slower learner, that the high achiever is forgotten. I believe there needs to be programs starting in kindergarten to address learning needs of all children, not the ones that might get 'Left Behind'.

The teachers and staff there are horrble and they don't pay attention to the students, they need better teaching and help the child learn better like how most magnet school do... Also they don't protect children.. They tell others where the child has moved to when the parent has requested privacy of where the child is attending in a new school....

I was unpleased with the lack of funding the school has. I experience problems with teachers that seemed cold mannered in showing compasion for my child. This school wants to put children in special education classrooms if they have any medical problems.

I keep hearing Winfield city school system is great! I believe that is true. However; we need to stay positive and be optimistic in our own school city as well. Hamilton is doing great with what they have and is getting better every year! I'm impressed with Hamilton Elementary school's principal, vice-principal, administrative dept., teachers, etc. and have the upmost respect for them considering their budget. Thank you. Toni Glenn
