"Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that's precise, predictive, and reliable - a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional."
-- Brian Greene

WELCOME! I am one of the many continuing die-hards who opened Hamilton in 1998. I was pregnant with my second child that year. She was a 2016 graduate of HHS and is now in her junior year at ASU. My third child was born in 2002 and was a Husky Pup for 5 years before heading off to Kindergarten. He is now a junior here at HHS with the Class of 2020. My oldest graduated from HHS in 2013 and is currently being a full time mommy to my one and three year old grandsons.
