This school used to be very good until the changes in the school system 2 years ago. The principal here now is not very empathetic to the children & I have heard from many parents of how uninvolved she is. She does not seem like a good fit for elementary school students as it seems more like a "job" to her than a "passion". The parking lot is very over crowded which I believe is why there are so many disgruntled parents in the mornings. They have a huge field next to the school that they should turn into a parking lot but never look into when brought up. Overall there could be a chance for this school to get back to the way it used to be if there were some huge changes.

Terrible school, worse parents. It's not uncommon to find parents swearing at each other in the street or school parking lot. Since norwayne schools have closed their students, parents and atmosphere has invaded Hamilton. The staff is nothing amazing either. My son's 3rd grade teacher would offten wear shirts revealing her mid-drift. The annual carnivals are ran by Wayne Memoral High School students who look like they would rather be doing anything else. I am moving my son this shool year.

I have 4 children in Hamilton Elementary & we have been very happy with the school. We have been in the Wayne-Westland school district for 6yrs and are very satisfied. There is a strong parent involved atmosphere. The principal and teachers are very interactive with the students individually no matter the class sizes. There are many afterschool activities that keep the children busy also.

Hamilton is an excellent school and my son has been very happy there. I have had minimal complaints about the school, and they were addressed immediately. My son says the principal is his friend and the school secretary is amazing.

My family has been at Hamilton for 10 years now and we hope to send our 2 year old there also, it is wonderful, the principal is great with the kids, our secretary is outstanding and goes out of her way for anyone. The one thing you have to understand about the teacher's is they can only do so much it takes parent participation also to achieve the best education for your child. The school goes out of it's way to provide help and support to anyone in need. We have many after school activities, alot more than other schools I know. Proud parent of (3) Hamilton Stars. Cheryle

I was very disappointed to find out that the student teacher ratio is so high. My son is in the 2nd grade and his class consist of 27 students to 1 teacher. In 1st grade last year there was only 19 but they have increased the 1st grade this year to allow 27 students per teacher. I think this is way too many.

I am very disappointed in the Hamilton School system. My son was receiving very poor grades the School Administrator did nothing to assists him with improving his grades. The teacher never gave out homework. I address this concern with the teacher through phone calls and letters. My concerns was never address. To top it off I attempt to make a appointment with her to discuss my child school work and I never received a phone call back. I removed my son from Hamilton and enrolled him in another school, his grades has improved greatly. I am sorry to inform the parents out there, but I believe my son was only failing, because of lack of concern of his teacher.
