Computers are not integrated into the classrooms. Japanese and Spanish are offerred but they have no text books for students. It is difficult to be involved with your child's education and impossible to get progress feedback from some of the teachers. They also do not incorporate basic skills such as organization, keyboarding, computer literacy, and the science curriculum is very lacking. The school is delapidated and it's social environment chaotic. I would not recommmend this school.
Best school ever. I made up my email, just so that I could rite this letter. I am a 13 year old kid that goes to this school, and it rocks you soxs off. It has dances once a month and the food is really good. I love this school!!!!!
I am skeptical about this school and feel it is not a safe, positive learning environment for my son.
LOVE Mr Acena! Hes wonderful with Students. Miss V is awesome too, Ms Gerlitz is a Great Coach as well as Teacher. They have a good thing there at this school can;t say enough good things!!
Hamilton Overall is a good school. When an issue surfaces it is treated quickly and calmly. Hamilton is an international school, so alot of the curriculum is made so it can incorpurate international views and cultural information.
We found the principal to be severely lacking in good judgment with regard to middle-schoolers budding self-awareness. The school also teaches to the lowest common denominator, and parents have to ask continually about the progress of their child if they are concerned that the child may not be doing as well as could be expected. We are fortunate that we experienced this school for only one year. We would never enroll another child here. The testing scores are very low. Many children are bussed in that have no interest in doing well. We cannot recommend this school.
If you are looking for a school for your student, Hamilton is not a good choice. The building leadership is lacking, the music program is being phased out to make room for Japanese language and Spanish, and technology is not integrated in the classroom. Students mainly use the computers to play games, surf the internet or chat in icon-based chatrooms.
