School Reviews

My son went to Hamilton Academy in the last half of his sophomore year and all of his junior & senior years of High School. Hamilton Academy legitimately saved his life. They taught him the skills he needed to manage his ADD and basic life skills; nobody else was able to get through to him. When he enrolled at Hamilton, he was at least a semester behind in credits, yet with the dedication and determination from the Hamilton staff he graduated on-time with his high school class. He is now 32 years old and is a success wedding photographer and lives life to it's fullest potential. I still think of Hamilton often and thank God for sending us to there when my sons fate seemed destined for failure. I very highly recommend Hamilton Academy to any student and parent struggling to obtain the services needed to keep their child on track at the public (or private) school. The reality is there are just some kids who are not suited for the standard school environment. Hamilton is the best option for these students when it comes to their education and learning life & coping skills. Thank you for who you are, what you do and the impact you have on so many lives.

Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
