Very negative. The principal at the primary yelled or talked down to me in front of staff. She did not ask me what was going just reprimanded me for my daughters excessive tardiness. Usually a few minutes late at most. I was the care taker for my Uncle who died and my mother was having psychotic episodes and I was about to fall apart. I would never send my child to this school. We will be homeschooling.Posted by a parent on 4/4/2019
I am scared. I get bullied, and no one helps. The is little to no help at this school. I don't want a child to go here, and be treated as a thing. At this school I am just a number, a test score. Despite it being a "public" school, it is the most closed minded school I have every been too. The staff pick favorites, and mistreat others. Please do not send a child here, unless you want to traumatize him/her. School of champions, more like the school of your daddy is rich, your free to do what you want.Posted by a student on 2/10/2015
Lake Hamilton was the school of champions but now not so much. Now all i see is that lake Hamilton is trying to hard to uphold a reputation because tjey now make students wear name tags and if they forget there name tag they get in trouble when my children go to school i would rather them not be treated like a prisoner. Also there athletics is still good but the coaches only care about winning and do nothing for the athletes as far as scholarships go because the coaching staff is so old and that's the way people got recruited years ago but now days if you dont get athletes names out there they wont be recruited. This atmosphere has to change name tags are ridiculous for a student they could have used my tax money on metal detectors instead of wasting them on name tags that just get you in trouble. Don't come here unless you want your children to feel like they're in prison.Posted by a parent on 1/14/2014

Although Lake Hamilton High School was overall a good experience as a student, some areas could easily be improved with the proper oversight. Certain teachers were wonderful, while others were laughable. I could go from one extremely difficult test to joking around and playing poker in back to back periods. It was like this every day. The AP program is really top-notch for po-dunk Arkansas. Sadly Bobby Burch has retired. He was THE asset of the AP system at Lake Hamilton and he will surely be missed. If you are a student get to know the office staff. I got away with so much stuff just by being in the know on school policy and with the administration. One of the biggest shortcomings is for students with behavior problems. It seems like a student was expelled once a week during my time at Lake Hamilton. I never found myself on the other side of the principals desk, but students who did found it unforgiving. Even good students mess up sometimes. Also, to go around searching students cars in the parking lots without permission is also ridiculous. Lockers may be a bit different, but the car issue was too far.Posted by a student on 5/24/2013

N/AGreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageThis school is just based on popularity, the Prinpicipal for the Primary building has no idea on how to educate. Times have change their is more and more children with disabilities. My son has a disability and do to my son's compulsiveness he was given a paddle. It was awful for me because I really don't have a rights I was told is either a paddle or suspension. They have no special classes for children with disabilities. Everytime I speak to the principal he acts like he know's more then me when it comes to my child. I feel discriminated against because I am hispanic.Parent Review8y ago
