We were new to the area and my daughter started first grade with excitement! Her excitement was short-lived for sure. Her experience was all about mindless worksheets and privacy folders for testing; lunch was silent and children were rewarded for being quiet. Our daugher was quiet - and quite lonely! After a month of unreturned calls and emails to teachers and dead end meetings with admin, we decided to switch schools and we haven't looked back!

The September 29th review is full of accusations but no facts. Sounds like this parent has a bad attitude. If you are going to give such a negative review, at least be informative about it, not just making wild accusations. Doesn't help a person make a decision about school quality at all this way.

This school has been nothing but a huge pain in the butt to work with. If you have a child that you care about and want to know what's going on or even have any say at all about what happens with you child I do NOT recommend living in Hamilton. Washington school only cares about the ways they can cut corners. It's not about what's best for the kids. The school board has also been nasty to work with. Not worth your time. Worst school to deal with.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
