My son has been a Hamilton Road Runner since day one and I have to say that I have been thoroughly impressed with the leadership despite the change in Administrators over the course of time that my son has been there. All of the Administrators have demonstrated that they have the support of their faculty/staff ...  Read more

Hamilton has bad teachers & good teachers. The good teachers are blessings, overlooked by the bad. We've had both. There are 3, 1st grade teachers. One will move to transitional kindergarten next year. One is a blessing and another not so good. In 2nd grade, there is a teacher just like the bad 1st grade ...  Read more

There are a lot of good ...  Read more

Great expanse of culture and the arts w/new charter school status. My children love Hamilton, their teachers and the staff. There are issues with the 'special needs' of children that need refining,if your child doesn't fit into the standard learning box. Overall, we feel loyal to the school and find ...  Read more

I have two girls attending Hamilton, and I have found the experience both frustrating and rewarding at times. My third grader had three different teachers in the first quarter! This was frustrating to say the least, but Mr. Gettman, the principal, was extremely understanding and supportive. Her instructors, ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
