    After having children in Hamilton I understand why parents home school their kids. Huge disappointment. From dropping off/picking up issues (you have to pass the school buses no other way to park the car) till asking parents who are dropping their kids off for the reason for their visit (?!). There are no clubs for students who wish to develop their math or science abilities and compete at local state and national levels. NJ3 and NJ4 results (2011) are below other schools Hamilton 81% literacy and 92% math comparing to Van Holten 83% and 95% Milltown 86% and 96% or Bradley Gardens 90% and 97%.

    I have a first grader and we love the school. Her teacher has really helped her grow in the past few months and made her very confident. We love the principal and most of the teacjers we have met. We could not be happier..

    I love this school. My children have been at Hamilton for 3 years and the staff and PTO are the most wonderful around the county.

    If your child has any mild to moderate special needs stay away from this school - very intolerant.

    I have two children attenting Hamilton at the moment (one in Kindergarten and the other 3rd grade) and couldn't be happier with the teachers and quality of education received. The only concern I will share is in today's 'politically correct' society Hamilton administration are a bit overzealous in ensuring harmony.
