    Hamilton Middle School is a great school. I went here and loved every minute of it. I never had a problem with a teacher and loved all of my classes. I enjoyed every second of my time there and miss it. I learned a lot there and it prepared me for my future. I am very glad to say that I attended Hamilton Middle School.
