Principal's Message

On behalf of Hamilton City School District Board of Education I am happy to welcome you to Hamilton High School. Hamilton High School has so much to offer all students.  We have expanded our Honors and Advanced Placement course offerings, which now total 23. The AP and Honors curriculum offered at Hamilton High School creates a challenging pathway for our highest achievers.  

Through our partnership with Sinclair Community College, Hamilton High School students have access to 19 college courses. Each course is taught onsite by Hamilton High School teachers or a Sinclair adjunct professor.  This year, over 200 students will take 500 courses worth 2,000 college credit hours! Hamilton High School is happy to provide students and families access to tuition-free college courses. 

Hamilton High School is pleased to partner with Butler Tech to ensure our students receive the highest quality career training available.  Through our partnership, students are not only able to explore career options on site at Hamilton High, but also gain access to any Butler Tech career program offered to high school students. 

Our recently restructured College Preparatory classes will ensure a rigorous curriculum for students who want to continue their education in a four year college or university.  But that’s not all! We also have the proper academic, social supports, and interventions in place for students who need additional assistance with their educational needs. There is no other high school in Southwest Ohio that can offer such a comprehensive curriculum to all the students and families it serves on one campus.  There truly is something for everybody at Big Blue!

Hamilton High is proud to sponsor 18 varsity, junior varsity, and freshman teams competing in 9  sports. Big Blue is a proud member of the Greater Miami Conference. The Hamilton City School District is a Nationally Recognized “District of Character”.  Along with our conference affiliates, Hamilton High School has lofty expectations for our students, athletes, and visitors. I hope you enjoy your time on our campus as you cheer for your favorite team.

Hamilton High is extremely proud of our rich athletic history and championship future; our fine arts programs which allow student opportunities to compete, perform, lead, and grow on a state and national level; our Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) which is Nationally Recognized, award winning, and provides students with military leadership training and experience; and all of our students and staff who make Big Blue such a special place to learn and grow. 

At Hamilton High School you will find a group of passionate educators who are dedicated to the success of all students.  The Hamilton City School District Board of Education has provided Hamilton High School with all of the necessary tools and support in order to serve the Hamilton community, provide a 21st century education to all students, and create a pathway of success for students to college, career, and life.  

Please let me encourage you to be a part of our community of success by attending our fine arts programs, athletic events, or just stopping by to see all of the wonderful opportunities we offer students to #ThriveAtBigBlue.  


Thank You!  Go Big Blue!
