Alexander Hamilton High School
Los Angeles, California
Los Angeles Unified School District
Alexander Hamilton High School is located at 2955 Robertson Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. The school consists of four multi-story classroom buildings, two gymnasiums, a cafeteria, and an auditorium.
Brown Hall, the original classroom/administration building, and the auditorium building which were constructed in 1936 are classified as historical buildings.
Expansions included the Humanities Building (1957). After we left, the Industrial Arts Building (1966) and new cafeteria (1966) was added. In 1974, a seismic retrofit of Brown Hall was completed.
That was quite a building.... I do remember taking French on the third floor of the building and throwing paper airplanes out of the window... When I was there in 1960, he front of the school was all grass and trees.... nice place to sit in the afternoons! Neat building!
Alexander Hamilton High School, commonly referred to as Hamilton High or Hami, is a public high school in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Hamilton High, similar in style to UCSD or Cambridge University, is sub-divided into seven "small learning communities (SLCs)."
Hamilton's school newspaper is called The Federalist, a reference to The Federalist Papers, the most famous writings of the eponymous Alexander Hamilton.
The sports program at Hamilton includes sports such as basketball, soccer, football, tennis, volleyball, track and field, baseball, softball, and swim teams for boys and girls. In recent years, the boys and girls soccer teams both received spots in the playoffs, with the girls winning the invitational playoffs in the recent year. In 2006 the football team achieved a record of 8-2, the best in the history of the school, thanks to the contributions of coach Kelvin Moore.
Several neighborhoods, including Palms, Beverlywood, Cheviot Hills, Rancho Park, Century City, and Reynier Village, are zoned to Hamilton.
Our grandson Theo is in Beverlywood and is currently zoned into Hamilton although Hamilton is a "Magnet School" for music these days....
