Not a great place! If you want your child to hate school and quit. Come here! Teachers are intimidating and unhelpful!! To portray to the class a failing grade-kids are shown videos of bombs going off-so they know they bombed the test! Math is a school wide problem! But it is your child's fault for not trying hard enough. Kids are encouraged & expected to look to friends or other children for help & support when they don't understand math. Expect to have to pay for a tutor for a passing grade in math! Teachers arrive and leave at the same time as the kids! Many teachers arrive late to class even in the middle of the day! Students can sit for 15+ minutes of a 60 minute class waiting for a teacher to arrive. Homework doesn't count! Only tests scores! And watch out for Standards Based Grading (opinion based grading)! If the instructions say to bake a cake-you should bake cupcakes (as standards based grading is explained on their website). Go the extra mile and you will get a 4 (A+). Just following directions would get you a 3.5. This method of grading teaches kids to not follow directions - which will be tough in the workplace!! If I ordered a cake - I want a cake!!!!!

"Personal Experience with Exceptional Results" is Hamilton Schools motto. This could not be further from the truth!!! If you are looking for a personal experience of failure, learning to hate school and failing grades this is the place for your child!! No exceptional results here!! And definitely no personal experience! If you have a struggling student(s) and do not qualify for help you are out of luck!!!! Unless you have a legal document - your child will struggle to understand!!! They have no real programs in place to help children who have a difficult time!! It is a one size fits all approach!! If you don't fit the mold you are out of luck! The math program at this school is a complete disaster!! Your child will leave unprepared for high school!!! The worst part is they don't have any idea how to teach math or how to help so students understand. The parking lot area for pick up and drop off is a very dangerous, very congested place and the administration doesn't address the issue. They hide so they don't see the problems!

We moved here from another state. My daughter is in her second year at Hamilton Middle. She is not an outgoing child but has found HMS to be a great place to make friends. She is involved in band and loves it. HMS offers many sports including swimming and many clubs such as drama and rocketry. The discipline is good and the teachers are awesome. They use a team teaching system that allows the kids to move back and forth between two to four teachers througout the day. This allows teachers to really get to know their students. HMS is a great school in a great school system.
