    "My boys are now in fifth and second grade and have been at Hamilton since pre-school. We are a neighborhood family and thrilled with how the school has grown. There is a strong commitment to building a well-rounded curriculum that includes technology, fine arts and physical activity. We have one child in the gifted program, but both boys are challenged academically and love their school. For neighborhood families, I would encourage you to send your children to this wonderful neighborhood school. It is an under-apprecaited gem in the community."

    "The teachers are very dedicated. I do have concerns as to children with special needs and how services are being reduced and sometimes removed, when it's obvious in some cases that services shouldn't be taken away. This is happening within the school lately . I think there should be innovation to help these children thrive socially as well as academically no matter the budget. Perhaps now that the school is doing well and enrollment numbers are not an issue they prefer not to allocate money into special education resources. In the past they accepted several students with special needs that were not from the neighborhood because they were needed to help the doors stay open. Now they are no longer needed. Never the less it doesn't take away from the great teachers and initiative the school has taken to keep the students physically active."

    "The leadership at this school is wonderful. The principal and VP are a great team and provide the teachers and parents ability to determine the sort of school we want. They do tend to the needs and self esteem of the entire child. I have a child in the accelerated program and a child in the standard program. Both children are thriving and are being stretched. I love the dance and PE everyday, both of those specials teachers are enthusiastic and engaged. Music teacher is excellent. The spirit of the school is small school and big parent involvement. The only criticism I would have is the math could be stronger, more drilling of fundamentals so they can better respond to testing environments."

    "I have been though the CPS wringer. 3 schools in 3 years and I can say it was all so I would end up at Hamilton. Great, engaged teachers. Strong, approachable leadership. An arts program that remained strong despite severe budget cuts and PE 5 days a week. I am so grateful to be part of this school community."

    "It's an amazing school. The curriculum, teachers, and every thing about this school is extra ordinary. My kid and I love everything about it. It is a small school but has everything it is to suppose to have."
