    "We have a kindergartner at Hamilton, and chose this school specifically because it is our neighborhood school, fosters a strong community/faculty/parent/child relationship, and is well run and well funded. We are a supporter of our public schools, and heard certain rumours about this school, which we have found to be entirely untrue, unfounded and unfair. This school is well run, well led, and offers a rich variety of extra curricular enrichment opportunities (in addition to its Common Core curriculum). The teachers are fantastic, and many have been at Hamilton for over 10 years. We just finished parent/teacher conferences and couldn't be more thrilled with our experience. Our teacher and the faculty that support her have been supportive, encouraging and incredibly dedicated to our child's success."

    "I have attended Hamilton since kindergarten,and I have loved this school for the whole time I have attended it. I'm entering eighth grade at hamilton the upcoming school year and I have loved every teacher I have had. The school also has a very good grasp on bullying, never once while attending hamilton have I witnessed bullying. I have enjoyed everything about my expierience at hamilton and heading into my final year at hamilton I hope that all of you parents will give this school a chance G.C"

    "I have very high standards for my children's education and did my due diligence in researching schools. Hamilton has impressive academics, outstanding teachers, a dedicated staff, great facilities, and more. It is a safe environment. The students are challenged, exceeding expectations, and building an exceptional academic foundation. The test scores are high, and even subgroups who traditionally have weaker scores earn good test scores at Hamilton. This achievement is a testament to the strong teaching and curriculum. It's unfortunate that false rumors continue to circulate about the school, when they in fact have little or no factual basis and are often based on prejudice. Notice that the negative reviews of this school contain errors in basic grammar, showing that the parents who wrote them may be ill-equipped to evaluate academics and school quality. I have found this to be true for many parents who criticize the school or elect to go elsewhere; the choice is often based on rumors or prejudice, rather than an objective and intelligent analysis of the facts. Perhaps these parents should attend Hamilton School to develop their own strong skills, knowledge, and analytical skills."

    "I am a student in 7th grade attending Hamilton. I have only been at Hamilton for two years but in those two years I have improved mentally, physically, and socially. I love conversing with both my fellow students and my teachers. I also teach three after-school classes myself, teaching 4th, 5th, and 6th graders how to do algebra using manipulatives. I love this school and would recommend it to parents of students of all ages."

    "As parents who believe in supporting local schools, we were quite disappointed in Hamilton as the grade levels increased. K-3 this is a GREAT school, lots of diversity, ways & activities for all to get involved. This school has a strong parent body & one of the most fantastic and strongest ELAC PTA in the district. However, the school is very disappointing in regards to setting protocal & being consistent in disciplinary action from teacher to teacher & providing structure, consequences when dealing with children with behaviorial needs. They have ZERO control of the upper campus 4th-8th, so many families @ 4th grade end up leaving for private, gate or utilize the PI move for 4th & 5th all due to the upper campus. Academically this school prepared children well K-3 & is STRONG in Math & basic writing strategies. However, due to the high ESL learners & parent base, this school struggles after 2nd/3rd grade keeping proficient students engaged & challenged on the language and writing front. The music & arts program is minimal nearly nonexistent. The school lacks creativity, dittos dittos & more dittos. Overall average experience K-3, it got the job done so to speak."
