Hamilton has undergone a chance from a magnet to a neighborhood school a few years back, resulting in some changes to the programming, but it has maintained it's stated focus on dance and the arts in general. In general, this school seems to be improving every year.

Hamilton makes me very sad. Many of the teachers are just awful. It is very sad. I do understand that poor(not good) teachers often teach poor(economically)children,but that should not be the case.Every child should have the right to a good education,and the right to be respected by their educators.If the teacher does not show respect for the student, the student will have no respect for the teachers,the learning process,themselves or society.A bad teachers influence does end when class is over.It can damage a child for a very long time. Hamilton should be ashamed of what it has become. It was a good school,now it's just an embarassment and a disappointment. I feel my children are stuck. It's very frustrating.

We love this school. Both my children are doing extremely well and excelling. The fine arts program and dance are wonderful and the teaching staff is great. I love the multicultural studies program and to see the projects that come out of that class. The students continue to excel in their test scores. The class sizes are small which is great for the students. The new parents group is doing a great job of raising money, promoting school spirit and working with the local community. We need to rebuild the our extra There is more work to be done on extracurricular activities but the school is working with the local YMCA and others on this. The principal provides quality leadership and is always looking out for the best interests of the students. She is also extremely accessible to parents. The school feels like a family which is great for our family.

This school has been a big disappointment. Communication between parents, teachers and administrators has dramatically deteriorated over the last three years while my two children were there. The caliber of many of the teachers has been shockingly poor. Several of them demonstrate a total lack of creative problem solving skills and an unwillingness to develop positive relationships with their students. I have witnessed my two boys' self-esteem plummet at this school because of the inappropriate ways in which their teachers relate to them and handle difficulties. My attempts to communicate my concerns to the teachers and the principal have been met with resistance and empty promises. I would not recommend this school to anyone who believes that teachers should be some of the most positive role models and influences in the lives of our children.

Hamilton is a good school. Dr. Strausburg is a fantastic principal, they should all be like her. You walk in with a problem, you will walk out with a solution. Academically they have worked harder with my kids than their last school. As parents we have to keep in mind their job is to teach, our job is to discipline. If we do our part all the kids benefit. I also supplement my boys education at home as I don't feel there is enough emphasis on grammar. Other than certain kids behavior issues, I don't have a problem with this school.

This is my son's third year at the school and we all love it. The staff is hardworking and dedicated. They show spirit by attending school events held on weekends and offsite. They have always taken the time to talk with me or my husband at any time, but we have also taken the time to talk with them. Same with the principal. She has been there for over 20 years for a reason. Overcrowding is not an issue. They are a smaller school with one classroom per grade. As a parent you should visit the school and more than once. Feel that it is right for your child.

I am completely shocked by the comments about the principal. My children have been at Hamilton for two years and I would say the principal is one of the most dedicated supporters the school could possibly have. The school has a new parent committee and there is a lot of positive momentum from the parent community. The staff is top notch and my gifted child continues to be challenged in her daily classes. While there is no official gym class (because of budgetary constraints) the children get plenty of physical activity in free time in the gym,outside or during the excellent dance program(s). I suggest that parents visit the school,meet the principal and staff instead of just taking one parent's word. The school is working on extra curricular activities and again this is funding related. The school partners with neighbor Lakeview YMCA for afterschool programming.

I used to go to Hamilton as a child and the other parents were right about the principal. I do not know how she managed to be a principal this long. But besides the fact that the principal does not care about the school, there is NO type of: extra-curricular activities, after-school programs, bilingual classes, or even GYM! There is a whole gym and nobody even uses it because instead of gym they have DANCE in a CLASSROOM! I will NOT put my own children in this school or reccommend this school to anyone.!

I use to attend Hamilton as a child and if the principal is still the same I can agree with the other parent,about her not really caring or being there. The teachers on the other hand were great. They tried hard to get you involved and enjoyed what they did. They became involved with the students on a higher level helping them with just about everything from school to personal problems. I am a mother of three and if I still loved in the area I would be happy to send my children there.

Posted December 12, 2004

Hamilton is the worst school you could send your children to. The principle is rarely, if ever there. She does not care about the students education. The year I was there she allowed police to enter and take students from the school without informing the parents. So honestly think twice about where you send your children for school.

I disagree with the comments of the previous parent. Hamilton is a great school with excellent teachers a strong principal and continually rising test scores.

Posted October 14, 2004

Do not send your child to this school if you want your child to ever learn any thing more than the same basic lessons that were covered in K-3rd grade. This school uses the Saxon program and after 3rd grade they focus on the same basic materials already covered. My children are now in fourth grade and have yet to be challanged. I spend increasing more time with my children teaching subjects that should be covered while they are at school. This school is famous for low test scores. PTO? the children are not getting the skills that they need to be successful. There are a growing number of children every year who can not read or write English. My children tell me that they refuse to separate those kids from the English speaking class because the school is so over crowded the resources do not support that effort.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
