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!
Hamilton is the best school in the world! all of the teachers are amazing especially the music teacher, Mr. Nitta. You can come to the school in 6th grade and not know how to play an instrument at all, and learn how to play in a few weeks! He is amazing!
They quality of academic programs is fair, the cross country team is very very disorganized. there are many extracurricular activities. the level of parent involvement could be improved
i think that they need to improve the quality of advising to students with study skills issues.
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.
