    "Talk about a turnaround! New principal, new vice principals, new deans, and the kids are back in the saddle! Test scores going up, school spirit high. Teachers have a great attitude. I love that my kid is learning, and I love that he loves going to school."

    "Great job, drama kids! In this one week, we had two performances of the musical "Flapper," and the orchestra and three acting troupes represented HMS at the DPS Shakespeare Festival. All of these efforts were smashing successes! APPLAUSE!"

    "Hamilton Middle School likes to brag that it is a AAA school - which stands for Academics, Arts, and Athletics. As a parent of two Hamilton students, I can say that academics is very much the emphasis at this school. In both the PEAK program and the IPM program, my kids were academically challenged, and supported when they had trouble with the material. I love the "Million-Word-Reader" program. In the arts, they have an incredible stage and auditorium for performances, considering they are a middle school, and the orchestra is worth seeing. In athletics, my kids found teams and team spirit. They worked hard and made friends, and brought home some championships. Overall, my husband and I are very pleased with our kids' middle school experience at Hamilton."

    "I have had 2 of my daughters go to this school, and the social and academic atmosphere at this school is great! My children have lots of nice and smart friends and if my child needs help, they get full time one on one attention. I love this school!"

    "My school is phenomenal with our new Principal Dawkins. I am an eighth grader in the IPM Program with a 4.0 GPA and have been through all the ups and downs of Hamilton, but with our new staff everyone can feel safe and learn in this new environment. The 8th grade class here is actually the best in DPS! Orchestra, band, singing, acting and all the other after school departments are truly amazing and I couldn't be more proud. The security, while strict, is great now because these kids need to be put back in their place and the PEAK teachers actually try on the kids unlike the last ones that openly told their student that they were stupid and could never live up to the IPM students. I swear while I can't speak for PEAK there is no bullying at all here, there are cliques of course but each clique basically accepts the other and leaves eachother alone like a little biosphere haha. I strongly recommend enrolling your children to this great school, and I guarantee that the '6' rating will soon be raised to an '8' or even a '9'! This school has great potential, just you wait. Go Huskies!"
