The ap office is horrible gives unfair punishments.Most of the teachers are nice though but the district rarely allows extra credit in the more harder classes.


Posted September 22, 2012

We had two daughters that graduated from HMS in cypress, we loved this school. in 2012 the principal moved to the district office, so hopefully the new one will keep the same greatness. loved this school and appreciative of their hard work. great teachers, staff. all..

Academics are very good, administration is overbearing and has no leeway for balancing discipline with the student's individual personality and learning process. Almost too much emphasis on testing.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 24, 2012

The teachers appear to be very good and they offer good academics. However, the administration greatly lacks. The principle is absentee. The APs do not communicate, collaborate or partner with parents. They see discipline issues very black and white and have very low tolerence for kid's behavior. This results in kids frequently being removed from class lessons to sit in the office to be interviewed about an incident whether they were at fault or not.

I am a parent of a 6th grader and having two children one in elementary and now my oldest in middle school i was new to Hamilton Middle school this year. I love it! My son is a straight A student and likes all his teachers. I think the teachers at Hamilton Elementary did a fantastic job at preparing our kids for 6th grade and the teachers at Hamilton Middle are doing a great job at preparing our kids for highschool. I really dont understand those parents who have left bad reviews for this school I have heard nothing but good things about it since i was a child and am now experiencing it myself. ......I am VERY familiar with this school district as I started going to school here when I was 8. Excellent school Excellent district!!!

I pulled my child from this school due to bullying. I advise against this school district not only for that reason, but academically it is also very poor.

An excellent school in every way. The teachers are wonderful, and they work hard to make certain your children will succeed.

It has (mostly) awesome teachers and has been exemplary for the past 3 years and gets good TAKS scores. The lunch actually doesn't taste like barf AT ALL and we are the TIGERS (and everyone should know tigers are BEAST!). Also we have a kool janitor dude and our commons area is named after holocaust survivor Walter Kase. The only time a student ever brought a weapon was when someone accidentally left a pocket knife in his backpack after a spring break camping trip (and for all you skeptics out there his dad confirmed it). It is THE BEST MIDDLE SCHOOL IN THE WORLD. GO TIGERS!!!!


Posted April 11, 2010

Great school, I enjoy all of my electives and clubs. To be honest, those who complain about work are just lazy. I'm sorry if you can't color in a map for geography, or if you can't handle TAKS. If you take time to schedule your day, you can find time for your assignments; Don't put them off till the last minute. The bad parent reviews are obiously disgruntled kids or parents who are out of loop. This is the best school in the district. Be glad you're at this school and not at Labay or something. Fyi, I am a student, and I have a distinguished honor roll as well.

Unsatisfactory school because of overemphasis on testing. Most time is spent preparing for the TAKS test & taking many quizzes/tests/SFAs(benchmark tests). Even worse, is the amount of homework time students waste coloring & drawing for academic classes. Mine didn't choose to enroll in Art. For some reason, CFISD curriculum dept has decided drawing, writing notes in colored pencil, etc. is a priority. A complete waste of time! A major distraction from educational activities, extracurricular activities, etc. Many teachers are great, but they are bound my HMS/CFISD rules. I agree w/ parent who said administration is overbearing.

very very good school. I go here and I really enjoy how our school works.

This school is great. I am a student here and I feel they teach everything we the kids need to know. Pretty much every year our school make at least 95% passing on the TAKS test. And at least 90% make commended. So it is a great school.

Hamilton is an overall good school,because the teachers have long years of experience and know what and how to teach us. They inspire us to reach for the stars and try are hardest, so we can reach our goals....as for the teachers.... if you were to enter Hamilton Middle School you would be in a absolutely excellent teaching enviroment and you will meet the highest standards you will ever meet (guarenteed)! Just know if you want to attent Hamilton Middle School, then be prepared to work. In a fun learning enviroment.That being said......'Peace out Girl Scout'!(:

Hamilton is a great academic school. The administration is strict and sometimes appears overbearing. There isn't much student spirit at the school which is sad in the middle school years. The student populationg appears very good and the admin. should ease up a little and balance the academic side with the discipline side.

i hate this school! the teachers need to stop giving us worksheets and quizzes and start teaching us something! all of the faculty are rude and forceful, and not inviting or polite at all. the only thing they care about is 'acceptable behavior', they never say anything about us learning anything. i need to get out of hamilton!!
—Submitted by a student


Posted September 5, 2008

I scoff at the mention of Hamilton being the best. 'Tis only the academic achievements that say that. What about what the students feel? Bundles of homework, unfair treatment, and there are times where they do unjust things. I loathe Hamilton with all my heart so far this school year (I am an eighth grader.); seventh grade with 'Ms. G' was the best. :)

Hamilton is the absolute best school in Texas. The theater/speech program is amazing! Sports teams will knock you off your feet. We were district champions in Cross Country this year and our vollyball girls were outstanding. basketball is going great for boys and girls. i would recommend that every parent send their kid to hamilton. they will surly enjoy the experience of studying at one of the most fun yet high-standard schools in Texas. Go Hammy!

It all begins at the top, and unfortunately the leadership sets a bad example: it appears to be a complete show.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
