    The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Hamilton High?

    As a parent whose children have attended Hamilton and currently attend Hamilton, I know without a doubt this was the best choice for our family. Great teachers, a fantastic curriculum, amazing arts programs, strong sports programs, and great community support makes Hamilton, I believe, the best choice for a comprehensive high school.
