Hamilton is a wonderful school and has been such a blessing to my family. My son and daughter both attend and have since Pre-K. They participate in many sports and have a great sense of pride in their school. The teachers not only provide an excellent academic background for my children, but also teach them how to have a relationship with Jesus. I love HCA! Go Warriors!
