The teachers there are amazing! I do not know one teacher at Hamilton that is not interesting or funny or nice. All my teachers at Hamilton have been great, and I am so glad I was privileged to have such great people and educators.
Hamilton is the best Middle school in CFISD. We are so excited at the arrival of the new principal, Ify Ogwumike. She already has the school moving in the right direction again.
This middle school is one of cyfair's outstanding schools. It has a nice balance of good teaching, an above-average sports program, and both excellent choir and band programs. The staff seems to enjoy working there. As a fellow educator,that says a lot!
I'm a Seventh grader at Hamilton. I LOVE this school. Its amazing how much the teachers here help us. Not to mention how much fun everything is. I'm in Student Council, Band, Cross Country, Track, French and take Horizons classes. Everything balances out very well and the teachers know how to grab your attention. I don't agree with some other reviews and how we get 'preferential' treatment. Its not true. The teachers and principles are involved with everyone. I would recommend sending your kids here. Its amazing, and they would enjoy it very much. Over and out. GO LADY TIGERS!
Great, warm atmosphers. It's obvious the teachers here really care about our kids. Teachers use innovative and creative learning experiences to hook them into learning.
My child has attended Hamilton Middle School for the past 2 years in the Gifted and Talented Program. We have found the school to be both academically challenging and rewarding. The school offers students many opportunities to enter enrichment activities and encourages each child to pursue their interests. The only negative comment I have about the school is that the administrators run the campus like a bureauracy with little thought how to handle individual children or situations. Everything is by the book whether it makes sense or not and as a result of this an individual student may be treated unfairly. A little courage to make an independant decision by the administration would be a good thing. Instead they are often more interested in doing the expedient thing with the child getting lost in the red tape.
Very good school. Principal and teachers are wonderful! New principal this year, though.
Hamilton is unique because its basically a TAKS prep course. Once the test is over, all gestures regarding extended effort to teach or catch up kids who aren't on-level fall on the wayside. The administration only shows genuine warmth to the over-achievers. Everyone else seems to be just humored or patronized. Volunteer parents are not really made to feel appreciated year-round. Unless volunteers fund decorating and food/reward items, the students would have a very bleak time there, just TAKS-TAKS-TAKS. The lucky few volunteers who seem to receive genuinely courteous treatment are the parents of students who fall under the over-achievers category. District rules are followed only if convinient/matters to someone with enough clout to have it enforced. The administration has perfected the art of giving the impression they are committed but unfortunately, in reality, they aren't. If you're active at Hamilton, like I am, you know the truth. Ironically, my step child fell under the over achiever category and is now at Cyfair but it didn't blind me to what I saw going on. I couldn't help but feel sorry for those kids who didn't quite measure up or some of their very dedicated parents. Overall TAKS performance is what matters. The school's district rating/ranking is the priority not the students themselves only what they know and if their ready for the test.
As a parent of a 6th grade boy I feel this school really cares about their students. They have helped me get my boy back on track. This is a wonderful school.
This school is one of the worst schools I have ever attended. The principal will not acknowledge your exsistence unless you do something 'special.' Only the electives teachers are good at their job, and all the other teachers need to focus on teaching, not writing d-halls or talking on the phone during class. The overall learning experience is poor, because the teachers will only give worksheets. Foreign Languages, Music Programs, Technology Ed, Computer Courses, Home Ec, and AAS are very good courses with excellent teachers who teach you what you need to know.
I love this school it is the best! I really like french and band the best! P.S. I am a 7th grader at this school!
