    "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."

    "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."
