This school is absolutely wonderful there is a diversity of cultures which i believe is a good quality in a school. I was born and raised in Hamilton and am very involved in my childs school and I am proud of my child and there achievements because i am almost 46 years old and i know that middle school can be a rough place but even though every school has there problems my child enjoys going into school everyday. The teachers are involved with the kids and really have helped my son in many ways they offer there time before and after school to help children and I believe that despite the problems and bad reputation the school may have it is a wonderful school and i reccomend it.
