I think the academics at this school are on target, or getting there, but I am concerned about the strictures put on girls with regard to their unspoken duty to dress "appropriately." In the real world, we call this "slut shaming." Boys can wear shorts above the knee, but not girls. Boys can wear t shirts with some "spicy" sayings, but girls get busted if they wear tanks with less than three finger wide shoulder straps. WHOSE FINGERS? That is problematic, in and of itself. Keep your fingers off my child's shoulders, thank you! If HMS handed us a dress code in the parent handbook, that is what they need to stick with. There is now the news that the dress code is changing so that girls can't wear skinny jeans or leggings. Frankly, if boys are so distracted by this (seen all over the city, not peculiar to Hamilton), then they are the ones who need some shaming. This dress policy change, made after school shopping occurred in many households, is just plain Draconian. I'm sure some administrators and faculty would love it if kids showed up in Amish attire, but that is not going to happen. Feeling pretty fed up.

This school has made many great changes. The security is amazing now. I am a 7th grader, going into 8th and last year as a 6th grader was terrible. The PEAK kids (known as TAP back then) were out of control (so were some of the IPM kids but it was the teachers who influenced the behavior in the TAP program). Students were throwing pencils at the ceiling and running out of classrooms. It was anarchy. But when principle Dawkins showed up, he was like our savior. He hired new teachers and deans and assistant principles. Together they enforced a strict new set of rules. The new Avid program has been amazing as well. The teacher is perfect for the position. Avid is about going to college. They tour near by college campuses and learn how to be more responsible is the career world. This is truly a school of excellence. It is an honor to go to this school. If you are a parent with a child about to start middle school, then let them start at Hamilton, a school of greatness.

Talk about a turnaround! New principal, new vice principals, new deans, and the kids are back in the saddle! Test scores going up, school spirit high. Teachers have a great attitude. I love that my kid is learning, and I love that he loves going to school.

Hamilton Middle School likes to brag that it is a AAA school - which stands for Academics, Arts, and Athletics. As a parent of two Hamilton students, I can say that academics is very much the emphasis at this school. In both the PEAK program and the IPM program, my kids were academically challenged, and supported when they had trouble with the material. I love the "Million-Word-Reader" program. In the arts, they have an incredible stage and auditorium for performances, considering they are a middle school, and the orchestra is worth seeing. In athletics, my kids found teams and team spirit. They worked hard and made friends, and brought home some championships. Overall, my husband and I are very pleased with our kids' middle school experience at Hamilton.

My school is phenomenal with our new Principal Dawkins. I am an eighth grader in the IPM Program with a 4.0 GPA and have been through all the ups and downs of Hamilton, but with our new staff everyone can feel safe and learn in this new environment. The 8th grade class here is actually the best in DPS! Orchestra, band, singing, acting and all the other after school departments are truly amazing and I couldn't be more proud. The security, while strict, is great now because these kids need to be put back in their place and the PEAK teachers actually try on the kids unlike the last ones that openly told their student that they were stupid and could never live up to the IPM students. I swear while I can't speak for PEAK there is no bullying at all here, there are cliques of course but each clique basically accepts the other and leaves eachother alone like a little biosphere haha. I strongly recommend enrolling your children to this great school, and I guarantee that the '6' rating will soon be raised to an '8' or even a '9'! This school has great potential, just you wait. Go Huskies!

My son, now an 8th grader in the PEAK (formerly TAP) program at Hamilton has some significant learning issues. He has pronounced attentional deficits as well as a disability of working memory plus some language processing issues. He has a high intellectual capacity, which helps him compensate for his disabilities, and so is able to struggle along. He is not a behavior problem. Still, he is a complicated student, and, given his shy nature, he would be easy to overlook in a full classroom. My hat is off to the teachers of Hamilton. Since 6th grade, they have taken the time necessary to work with him and to meet with me and his father to see that his academic needs are met. These teachers are truly dedicated, and I want to thank them. (Especially the 6th grade team who helped him transition to middle school so well.) You all are my heros.

I went through the Hamilton IPM program for all three years and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I have made many friends and gotten a 4.0 GPA. I couldn't speak for PEAK (TAP) students but I think that the academics are very good. Also, since the old principal, (Ms. Gutierrez) has been replaced by Mr. Dawkins, Hamilton is improving every day. Although I have disliked a few teachers, overall the teachers were engaged and supportive, if I had a problem they would help me out. Hamilton has properly prepared me for high school.

Hamilton middle school is providing my 7th grader with the foundational knowledge to succeed in high school, but more importantly, my daughter is happy. She continuously comes home enthused with stories about the teachers, assignments, or activities from the day that inform me of the quality instruction taking place inside of Hamilton Middle School.

We have been involved with the school for 5 years and my children have always felt safe to go to school and in general like going to school every day. New administration has been working hard to improve the school's internal environment - successful so far. The IPM Program has also proved to be a good fit.

When I read the positive posts regarding this school I have to wonder if there is another Hamilton Middle School somewhere that is a great school. My daughter has attended Hamilton for 6th grade IPM and is currently in 7th grade IPM, I am working to choice her out of there. The reports that DPS publish every year grading each school tell the whole story. When it comes to Hamilton parent satisfaction gets an F every year. The teachers refuse to engage with students that are having trouble, which is really the primary purpose for a teacher. There are behavior issues at the school that often require the Denver Police Department to be involved. You can't ever talk to anyone in the administration because they're always too busy. I really can't think of a positive comment regarding this school. If you are looking for a middle school for your child I would encourage that you look elsewhere. I was warned by several parents a year and a half ago and I ignored them, I wish I hadn't.

My daughter went here for 6th & 7th grade ipm. Besides never getting email replies from her teachers, we also never received follow up when trying to set up meetings to discuss her grades. We pulled her out of Hamilton for 8th grade & now she is excelling at her current middle school. Overall, the teachers and staff do not care about your student at Hamilton & I really wish I would have removed her from that school much sooner.

This school is rebuilding and on it's way to the top. With a unified student body, teaching teams across multiple programs, and a superb Administration, everyone is happy and learning. Hamilton Middle School is a school with excellence in Academics, Arts, and Athletics. Students are constantly challenged to learn new things. With 21st century technology in classrooms, an outstanding electives program, and encouragement to play a sport, all students have the opportunity to grow and become well rounded individuals. You will not find a better music program anywhere in Denver, with both the orchestra and band receiving superior ratings from CHSAA in the last school year. Students in vocal music and instrument music represent the school in the DPS Citywide music programs every year. Hamilton Middle School Students continue to take awards on a National level. New logo, new website, and new programs, everyone is encouraged to get involved as we build a stronger Hamilton. Our family could not think of a better place to learn. I know our students will be prepared for the world ahead of them.

What a difference a new principal makes in a few short months. Mr. Dawkins and his staff have worked tirelessly to turn this school around and it is showing. He cares about the education of ALL STUDENTS in the building whether they chose IPM or the PEAK program. It is very refreshing to see staff and students smiling and excited about coming to school everyday. My 8th grader says it feels like a totally different school that when he started in 6th grade. I volunteer in the school and it's nice to see the transition that is going on. Hamilton is well on its way to being the best middle school in Colorado. I would highly recommend you take a look at the academic, athletics, and art programs the school has to offer. There is a wonderful drama dept., vocal music program, band and orchestra program, visual art, and computer programs. It is a great option located in Southeast Denver. Be sure to come check out the new Hamilton before making a choice for middle school. You'll be glad you did!! Thank you DPS for making a much need change at our wonderful neighborhood school.

Wow! What renaissance since last year. Everybody is smiling! It's hard to believe it's the same school. Many new enthusiastic teachers. An all new administration, including a kid, parent and teacher friendly principal who puts kids first and is dedicated to making Hamilton the best school in the state. New technology including smart boards in nearly every room. A dynamic elective program the includes art, band, orchestra, vocal music, dance and two computer courses. Two academic choices IPM and PEAK designed to accommodate every kid. Their school rating for last is a reflection of the old administration and some teachers who were shown the door. My son is proud to be a Husky again!

We are in our third year at Hamilton, and my two kids continue to have a wonderfully dynamic educational experience at this DPS school. The team teaching approach incorporated at the school ensures that kids don't slip through the cracks. My kids are challenged academically while being given the freedom to use their imagination and creativity in the process. We feel good about our decision to send our kids to Hamilton, and there is no question that they will be ready for whichever high school they choose. Additionally, the administrative staff at the school is fabulous!

I am a student in the new PEAK program at Hamilton and this is definitely a whole new school! We have new awesome, caring teachers, everyone is working hard and happy in every classroom, and we have so many great things to we can do - all my friends are so excited to be in PEAK because of AVID, boys' book club, and because of our awesome teachers (in 8th grade especially) this year! AVID is getting us on track for college and is going to show us what to do to be successful, plus it's fun and a good place to feel like you have a family who will have your back. The best change is Mr. Dawkins - he really cares about us and is getting rid of the old ways. He knows that all kids are smart and deserve a great school. I really like going to school this year and I feel like I'm learning a lot.

I spent my three middle school years in the IPM program at this school, and I loved it. That academics are great, the teachers really care, and I learned so much. I'm now in the IB program at George Washington and I love it. However, the segregation between IPM and PEAK is awful. However, last year, the old, prison-guard principal was finally fired, and Mr. Dawkins, the new principal, is wonderful. I believe that the school can only get better from here on out. -Julianna

This school is absolutely horrible. I went here for 6th and 7th grade. I had to move because of the bullying and segregation problems. The principal and teachers stand by and act as if their is nothing wrong with students mentally hurting other students. The 2 years I spent at hamilton were the worst! Not only is the social life at hamilton terrible, but so are the academics. I went from being a straight A student to flunking most of my classes. The teachers barely try. The students are insane. The teachers mainly talk to you for 30 minutes and hand you a test expecting you to ace it. I would definitely not recommend this school to any parents.

My child started attending Hamilton this year and has went completely downhill. He went from being a normal every day child to a child that I am struggling on a day to day basis to figure out how to deal with properly. His academic work has suffered, his attitude is horrible, and there are other troubling signs. I have two other children that would be entering Hamilton over the next few years and I will not be letting them go to this school. The teachers seem unable to control their classroom. Saying things like "I've got a lot of talkers in this class and it gets out of control sometimes." The entire staff seems to be at their whits ends in trying to function on a day to day basis. I quite honestly believe that this school has aided in my child becoming a worse student and individual, not a better one.

This school is awesome!!!! this school teaches you a lot and the teachers are very nice and caring. I have been in this school for 4 months and i think its an excellent middle school. This doesn't mean that i haven't had problems at this school though, i have been in some problems with some of the kids, but the security of the school will fix it in no time. I also think that it is a very organized school. The IPM kids are in the middle of the building and the tap kids are in the bottom so the kids can be separated which is a good thing because the TAP kids don't really like the IPM kids for some reason. The principal of the school is really responsible and will take care of the problems.(:

Unless your child is in the gifted program, do not send your child here!! Don't make them go through what those kids go through on a daily basis unless the parents buy their education. The principal can NOT be reached, administrators pass the buck and nothing is ever their job. My children were bullied by students AND several teachers and nothing was done despite repeated phone calls to the leadership in this building! The teachers have no desire to inspire or motivate, often calling the kids in the TAP program lazy or stupid! You can't get a call back or return email from anyone in this building unless you show up in the office! It's the most frustrating thing to communicate eith this team and the most disgusting example of educational leadership I have ever witnessed! There is not a chance on Gods green earth I will put my kids back in that school! I will take extraordinary measures to keep my kids out of there.

Unless your child is in the IPM program, you will both dislike this school. My son transferred in from out of state, we were never even told about IPM, now his grades have dropped, he has seen things in the hallways no child should see, and the teachers treat him like he is a " problem child" just for being in TAP, and as one of the only white kids in TAP, he feels alone. Yes some of the TAP kids are obnoxious but not all of them, but try telling that to the teachers. We are pulling him out and not looking back. Good luck if your child is normal and not in the gifted program, which is where all the other white kids are. Sounds like 1960's Mississippi to me.

Beside the IPM and TAP issue, which I'm glad most people realize what is going on at this school, I believe there's segregation between the IPM program. My best friend and I have many friends in TAP, most of them from elementary school, but not a lot in our own program. We felt that since we hung out with TAP kids whenever we had the chance to be with them, other IPM students thought that we had the stereotypical TAP traits, which were unintelligent, poor, and didn't care about our education (which is the opposite of many students in TAP actually. Most are quite smart). We were and still are extremely shy around crowds so we didn't want to be open. This lead to us, and some other students with the same problem, being the outcasts of the core. I assumed the teachers realized this, and acted as if we were less intelligent than the other students too, despite the grades we got. My other problem is, you have to be either popular or extremely (un)intelligent to get a teacher's attention. I remember, while I was there, my teacher never learned my name till the end of the the year, despite the times I've participated in class.HMS is a large school, but that was ridiculous.Worst school.

After being away from this school for two years and finally getting my head around what was really going on here, I have decided that I wish I had filed a formal complaint against this principal. Shocking and embarrassing, the worst year of our lives. She even had separate dances and drinking fountains. Shame on Hamilton and DPS!

I go to Hamilton and I have not been very pleased with it. The teachers in the IPM program are good, but the principal is not. She doesn't listen to suggestions and doesn't know kids unless they're unusually good or bad. Furthermore, there is a ton of segregation between TAP and IPM. IPM (which I am in) gets all the attention, and TAP falls by the wayside. Also, there are stereotypes that "IPMers have no life" and "TAP is not smart." This, and the fact that the two cores are kept as far from each other as possible, causes almost no interaction between them, which only serves to increase the stereotypes.I have found that the classes are not challenging at all, and with minimal amounts of homework. Whoever said that we get four hours of homework each night is completely wrong. The most homework I've ever gotten in my three years here is 3 hours working the night before a history assignment was due. The teachers move fairly slowly, because they have to keep up with the unmotivated kids, which IPM is full of (contrary to popular belief) which serves to make motivated kids incredibly bored and staring at the clock. Hamilton needs to start living up to its reputation or it'll lose it.

First of all, the school is completely divided between the regular classes and the IPM program. Most of the attention is focused on the IPM program and that attention is not even good. The student body is constantly made to feel unworthy and "bad" especially by one of the vice principals. Teacher and course quality is so-so because,with the exception of some, the teachers are awful. Now, I know the music program at Hamilton was outstanding mainly because of the terrific music teacher. However, this outstanding music teacher has since retired and the school chose an unfit person to take his place. The new teacher routinely puts us down and makes us students feel awful about our playing ability.These actions caused a huge percentage of music students to drop out of his class. He has turned what was arguably the best music program of any DPS middle school into at best an okay music program at best. This schools only bright spots seem to be the sports program and even that has holes (holes meaning some sports are plain awful). This school may seem great on the outside with the magnet program but going through it made me see how terrible this school really is.

I am deeply concerned about the segregation between the high-performing and TAP (traditional program) students. There is a wide gap--an embarrassing gap, between the performance of these two groups. Although there are some outstanding teachers in this school, teachers clearly differentiate between groups. I feel it. My student feels it. And I would imagine the TAP students feel it too. Overall, this divide is not good for our kids--both the achieving and underachieving and I believe it is wrong for our schools, wrong for our kids and wrong for our society. It is wrong to support some kids at the expense of the other kids. I hope others will stand up and speak up about this segregation which is right here in our back yard.

After "shadowing" at several DPS middle schools, I was incredibly impressed with Hamilton. As a parent, I knew my child would have a quality education, especially because of the International Preparatory Magnate program. We are fortunate to have such a fine caliber of a school in our city. The teachers are unparalleled. Hamilton lays the foundation of important study habits, along with organizational skills that will stay with the student throughout his education. In my opinion, Hamilton affords our children with an education equal to that of a private school, only at taxpayers cost! Our family loves Hamilton.

My son graduated from Hamilton and is now a freshman at the United States Air Force Academy. This is not an easy school to get into and he did have to report where he went to middle school. He had friends in all areas of the school, Magnet, TAPS etc. My daughter is now a 6th grader at Hamilton and loves it as well. The Teachers, Principal and Vice Principal are outstanding. There could always be more parent participation but that is not for lack of trying on the schools part. Get involved and make difference in your child's life.

Hamilton is a phenomenal middle school! My 7th grader recently came to me and said, "Mom, I'm so happy!" That's almost unheard of for a middle schooler! Danny feels cared about at Hamilton. The kids treat each other with respect. They feel connected to the adults in the building. And he is getting a great education! My older son also got so much out of his time at Hamilton. He learned to manage his time so well that he is now able to juggle IB classes at GW, swim team and being a very committed thespian! Thanks, Hamilton!

I am a proud parent of an 8th grader right now at Hamilton. My daughter loves her time so far. In 7th grade I really saw her come into her own. She had five amazing IPM teachers. Whenever she came home from school she always was full of stories of the engaging activities in Mr. Bailey's classroom and the humor and kindness of Ms. Cole. She was speaking French to me at dinner after just two weeks from Ms. Barber's instruction, solving difficult and high-school level problems from Ms. Kyker and really getting some hands-on lab based science instruction. I will say that I especially thought that Ms. Cole was amazing for my daughter. She really encouraged them to think for themselves. My daughter actually really enjoyed history, a subject I always hated! She also is really enjoying her 8th grade history teacher too, Mr. Wilhelm. Love the teachers here!

They say things start at the top. Well, Hamilton's principal, Reina Gutierrez, is a most amazing person and principal. She is level headed, strict yet compassionate. Her dedication is easily apparent even to students who must know she cares! She runs a tight ship but she also knows most of the students by name if not by face.

The student body of Hamilton Middle School is divided both racially and demographically . Administration does nothing to create a sense of community among different groups other than the glorification of sports. There are some wonderful teachers and some weak ones, but the overall tone of the school comes from the top down, creating a punitive, distrusting environment. The IB program gets the attention, while the general student body is treated as second-class by the administration, which is mirrored in the attitudes of the students. Homework is often given for homework's sake and all too often consists of worksheets. Class size is large and the teachers convey the feeling of being over-worked.

I'm a parent of a student at Hamilton Middle School in 7th grade and the teachers for 7th grade are wonderful. The teacher that stands out the most is the Language Arts teacher, Mr. Bailey. Whenever I asked him who his favorite teacher was he always said that it was Mr. Bailey. I also thought the other teachers were good too. Mrs. Barber, the spanish and french teacher was very good, by the first month my son could tell me complete sentences in spanish. Ms. Kyker is the math teacher and she is a very exciting teacher and explains everything very well. Also Ms. Cole is a very teacher and she explains everything in great detail. The teachers there are some of the reasons that I loved Hamilton. Go Huskies!

This school is devoted to its IB program and puts few resources towards other students. I agree with other parents' assessments of the racial and academic priorities of this school. My son is a bright, under-motivated child who was new this year to CO and had been home schooled the previous two years. They did no testing, the principal admitted they just put him where they had room, and he suffered greatly for it. His language arts teacher was unable to form a complete sentence, literally, she often used no verb at all. The communication was poor to non-existent. I tried for 3 months to get a return call from the principal. This school is overrated because the IB kids are the focus and have great experiences. Parents of other children should beware. Their child will not receive an education and their efforts to help their child will be frustrated.

I went to Hamilton Middle School as a child and now my son attends. Sad to say, the school has changed dramatically. My son hands me a short form he's received from a teacher close to every day (son didn't have a pencil was the last one I received) and my son seems lost when we go over his homework. Both clear indicators that the teachers are very nonevasive and unorganized. From what I've witnessed, the majority of the student who are in the IB programs are caucasion, and I feel that they want to keep it that way. My review of this school is that the kids in the 'regular' classes do not get the academic support they rightfully deserve. The homework is enfrequent and below standard. There is no effort of the staff for student 'excellence', except if your caucasion and in the IB program.

Hamilton Middle School is an outstanding Middle School. The teachers are involved and inviting to both parents and students. There is a plethora of both academic and athletic extra curricular activities and all students are encouraged to participate and do their best. Parents, too, are encouraged to help in all arenas of the school and participation is good but always could be better. The parent referring to the disorganized cross country team below should have volunteered to help the program and then they could have enjoyed all of the teams 1st place successes with the team. As for the parent referring to the 'rude' and 'to busy all the time' principal, I wholeheartily disagree. I have found the HMS principal extremely polite and engaging, and...busy -- coordinating the education of our kids, overseeing the teachers, para and secretarial staff, and integrating parents into this system that works very well!

This school is misleading the principal is rude snd to busy all the time the assistant principal is worse. My son was in the special ed class and all they did was watch movies!! mean everyday! His teacher was always out sick. The paras are old with hearing aides so the kids get away with everything! his exceptional classroom has the worst supervision and lack of structure. No wonder they shut down so many Denver public schools! It's a shame they will let anyone one off the street work for them!

Most students at Hamilton Middle school are overachievers. Almost everyone is in one of the many offered extracurricular activities such as AVID, soccer, basket ball, volleyball, Art club etc. there is a decent level of parental involvement. If the students are out of line they are always 'delt' with very calmly, but still in an effective manner. The teachers are all very kind and caring along with all of the staff. The band teacher is one of the best in the Denver Public School district and the students are in a warm and caring environment.
