    "My son is in 4th grade now and the school is still wonderful. When I have issue or question, the school staffs and teachers address it right away. This site - Greatschools.org combine elementary and middle school test score together that mis-present the total score. If you look at the 1st - 5th grade score, this school is 8/10 Not 5/10."

    "Since Hamilton expanded to incorporate a middle school, it has become a disaster. There is little discipline or respect. The bullying is out of control. The fourth and fifth graders are exposed to foul language, students wielding razor blades, fires in the bathrooms, etc. For one year, there were no stall dividers in the boys bathroom, because the students had ripped them off the walls. There is trash everywhere. After two months, the school gave up on having the middle school students wear PE uniforms, because the kids refused to dress out. There are no lockers, because the administration does not trust the children to use them (that came from an administrator). After three kids and ten years at the school, we're out! Check the dates on most of the positive reviews. For many years, the school was very good. Before the middle school, I would have given it five stars."

    "2012-2013 was my daughters 4th year at Hamilton and her 2nd year in the Academy program. Her progress has been outstanding, for example: going from a 3.6 to 6.4 level in reading. Both Academy teachers (Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Diaz) have been nothing short of spectacular. While personally not a huge fan of the previous principal (Mrs. Bexton) she was an excellent driving force behind tons of initiatives and the new community gym/theater being located at Hamilton. The new principal, Mr. Hospadar is probably one of my favorite people at the school and Ms. Patty in the front office is always friendly and upbeat (no easy task when dealing with a steady stream of kids and parents in the office all day!). We're a Coast Guard family and have really found a home here in Novato. When I received orders for another year in my current assignment my first thought was how happy my daughter will be to learn she will get to spend another school year at Hamilton! Now, if I can only squeeze 2 more years out of the detailer so she can finish Middle School we'll be in business...... :)"

    "They can't get a handle on the bullying at this school. Students have no respect for teachers, volunteers, and especially other students. There is a lack of supervision at recess and the school looks terrible. Trash remains all over, while the janitor walks right by. If your looking for a wonderful school for your child, LOOK ELSEWHERE!"
