Hamilton High is a beautiful school with a lot of good things going for it. However, because they are such a large school, students easily get lost. They don't follow up on student absences, so students can easily get away with skipping classes, etc. There doesn't seem to be a lot of one on one care for the students.
What an amazing school! We have had one graduate, a current senior and a current sophomore. We could not be more impressed! Dr. DePrez is a fantastic leader and challenges his staff to be as well. I am involved in many areas within the school and am impressed everyday with how they pull it off with such high population numbers. For the parent who was having trouble getting passes and info....go to the website for info, pick up a pass via the boaster club at almost any of the high school sporting events or call and ask. I have never experienced the staff not willing to find the answer to a question.
My daughter has been studying in the American International Schools since her 4th grade. Her current school is American School of Doha in Qatar. If anyone plans to travel to Qatar for long term assignment and has kids, this is one of the best schools in Doha. Pre-K through 12, total number of students just under 700. Excellent music and arts program. AP curses are available. Foreign languages (Spanish, English and Arabic) are taught by native speakers. Kids travel to other countries on various programs as well as host other international schools for sporting and arts events. Huge number of after school activities. Teachers are mostly from the US and Canada. Children genuinely enjoy going to school.
It is a good school and very nice but unfortunately 'money talks' way too much in there. There is alot of favoritism for both ends of the financial scale and nothing for the middle.
I am a graduate of the class of 2004. I spent four amazing years at hamilton high. I felt that we really were the best! we were the first class to go to state in many different sports. The teachers are wonderful, minus a few. There are some teachers that I would highly recomend... First, mrs. Lunduhl(spanish teacher)the very best!, she helped me even after she wasn't my teacher and I learned more from her. Mr. Ed hermanski! I love him to death! he made boring history come to life and really was there to help you understand. Then my dance teacher..Mr. Milbauer(mr.D) he makes high school fun! I couldn't wait to get to class and dance my worries away. I will miss them the most!
The vocational agriculture program is one of the best in the state. The instructor stays on top of the jobs in the community instead of what everyone thinks an ag program should be. He does not subscribe to the 'good ol' boy' mentality, instead, teaches the students about landscape and horticulture, where the jobs are.
Hamilton staff and teachers have been great for my kids. I have one that is already graduated and one that has 1 more year to go. I can t imagine what there lives would be like with the school. There is a great balance between academics and fine arts/sports. There is an understanding of developing a complete student ready to face the world. Accountability and Responsibility are two things that are stressed to the youth. The best part is the staff and teachers seam to enjoy having parents involved with there kids lives. Responses to questions and concerns are always promptly returned.
Our Daughter is thriving under the leadership of Hamilton. The staff has been wonderful and receptive to our needs. We feel that for a school this size, they return our calls and answer our questions and concerns in a timely and professional manner. We feel like Hamilton has not lost its small town feel with their attention to details, in spite of the tremendous growth in the area. We feel blessed to be at Hamilton. Thank you Hamilton's staff for making our Daughter's freshman year fantastic! We would also like to congratulate the Varsity Football Team, our new State Champions!
This school has great leadership development skill learning, great academics, and a great athletic program.
For 3 years I have tried to purchase season tickets to the sporting events. There is little or no communication on the part of the faculty or staff. We receive little or no notification of events involving our children. we would like to become more involved by volunteering but, apparently Hamilton does not need any volunteer help. There is much more wrong with this school in which it is all a direct reflection of the leadership provided by the principal and leadership staff. Our children do enjoy the school and are challenged in their studies. Hamilton has been able to provide adequately pertaining to the most important aspect of educational goals.
