    MY SCHOOL IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The teachers are helpful nice and awesome it dont matter what teacher it is they are super nice and helpful. We help causes like cancer autism and much much more ( plus we donate money to help it too). The students are always helpful and nice and cool to hang out with they are always caring and listen. Our principal is always cheerful and always wearing shirts to match the cause for the month! If you need help with something the teachers are always right by your side and helping you with whatever you ask. My school has a lot of sports and activities to do and they will make sure you are healthy and make sure your in a okay environment. Our OAA is coming up and they give us helpful tips and we get tickets and raffles for being on time and doing good on our OAA. They give us websites that we can go on to and study for< and they do extra stuff in the classroom to help us with the OAA like flashcards and everything! I hope i never move because i am in love with this district too much!!!!!!!!!! <3

    I moved to the district from Groveport and I was very pleased with the facilities however I do agree that parent involvement is not welcomed. I also noticed at the Intermediate building the few times I was there the staff gossiping about students to one another infront of other students and parents. I felt that was very unprofessional.

    I have two boys in the Intermediate school and we have had a horrible experience. To see the principal you have to write a letter of request. The office staff are very unprofessional and make everything very hard for parents to be involved. Many changes need to be made to this school for it to be parent & student friendly. It is sad that these beautiful schools were built and were not properly staffed. Students needs are in now way put first.

    Hamilton schools are way more on focus with their students than Columbus City Schools from my experience. With the exception of a few teachers that are just there for a paycheck just like any other school in the US. The new schools are fantastic in my book! Go Rangers!

    My class was the first to attend and graduate all three grades. This school is very nice clean and organized. It's really easy for students to find their classes. Very great school.

    Horrible! Worse than Columbus public schools! Teachers and administration are rude school work is a joke. I regret ever moving to this district.

    beautiful new school with first-class facilities

  • (8 years ago)

    This is a good school with the exception of a couple of teachers that are only there for a paycheck. My child has done great with the remainder of the teachers they seem to care about the kids and how they perform.

    Excellent School. Teachers and staff care about the students and 'push' them to do their best. The school focuses on learning and has cut out a lot of the 'fluff' that wastes school time. Our kids are now doing well on state mandated tests.

    Excellent school. I wouldn't want my children going anywhere else.

  • (8 years ago)

    I hate that my children attend or will attend this school. The PTO is not wanted. Parent involvement is frowned upon.
