    "My son is a special-needs student at Hamilton. You know, the kind of kid that requires extra attention and extra money and nobody particularly wants to deal with? Only, they really care about him and nobody seems to think he's a burden at all. I was fully prepared to have to fight for services and for accommodations in the classroom. Instead what I got was prompt and individual attention from Principal Hospodar, school resources that work to help him succeed, and a teacher that could not be more invested in finding ways to work specifically with my son's unique personality to help him feel comfortable in the classroom and achieve his full potential. As a result, he's performing above grade-level and he loves school (well, most days). The administrators and teachers at Hamilton talk a lot about how every child matters and how committed they are to making sure that *every* child succeeds. My son is proof that it's not just lip service--the commitment is real."

    "My son is in Kindergarten with a caring teacher who nurtures and inspires him as well as a lovely group of sweet kids who he can't wait to see each day. Principal Steve's charistic energy and hard work is driving the Hamilton community to be a great local school that we can only get behind and our kids can thrive at."

    "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."
