I attended Andrew Hamilton for four years. I enjoyed myself and am grateful for the oppurtunties offered to me by this school. Anyone who has had a bad encounter at Hamilton I do apologize personally as a student. The teachers are great and they DO push students and DO offer help it is just a matter of taking advantage of that oppurtunity. Andrew Hamil is a GREAT school.

I went to this school for three years and did not enjoy it. The school motto is one school one goal but the school has two side academic and aims the academic side have nice class rooms laptops clubs and get trips. But when it comes to the aims side they have messy side no laptop to do work on smartboards who sound don't work and no club and trips the teachers always get disrespected and the aims side by the academic. And the academic run the halls all day and then the teacher and our side .
my child has gone there and she is doing better in school her grade was a c to a b
The teachers are not pushing the students hard enough to be all that they can be. Majority of the students are very intelligent but are also very immature and spoiled. Children who are bullied at this school never get there justice some children even bully teachers. How can you call this a school??????????
I only have first hand knowledge about Hamilton's Academic achievement program 6 thru 8th grade. It's an excellent program. If you have an exceptional child and are looking for a public school to keep their mind working. This is definitely the program for you know matter how far you have to travel. But be prepared to spend a lot of late nights doing homework and projects .
