Nice school, much better than private ones. They have AI classes (academically independent for gifted and talented children) and, therefore, they have a lot of smart students. Principal is very open-minded, ready to take an extra step to make this place better.

The school is great, they have AI (Academically Independent) classes and many families buy houses in Bridgewater because of this. However, I have to say that there is a lack of youth clubs, extracurricular activities and competitions/olympiads comparing to other schools in the area. If your kid is above average and you want him/her to take part of any science/math/English competition, you have to take care of it by yourself. Just spoke to a few parents and they agree with me. It's a pity because there are some great students in Hamilton who should proudly represent their school but they don't have this opportunity (for example the Hamilton Academically Independent student won the 2013 International Math Competition). Nice teachers, great kids but if you would like your child to learn more than the state requires him/her to learn and have an opportunity to take part in the competitions, find a better school.

I graduated from Hamilton Primary School in 1997. At the time, Hamilton hosted Grades K-3 (just before I entered Kindergarten, it hosted K-4...as of 2011, it hosts K-4 yet again), and was very strong academically. The students, teachers, administrators, and parents cared a great deal about maintaining a positive academic environment. As a teacher now, I can only hope Hamilton still has that reputation, and if it does - I would recommend it strongly to both prospective students and teachers alike.
