Associated Student Body

What is ASB?

The Associated Student Body, better known as ASB, is a team of academically driven, talented, and motivated student leaders who represent our student body here at Hamilton High School. Our purpose is to serve as a communication bridge between our students and administrators in order to create the best school culture. We are in charge of hosting student events such as Club Rush, Homecoming, UCLA blood drives, and many more to promise an enjoyable high school experience. Our top priorities are to ensure voices are heard and to have a positive school culture overall. ASB is the unification of our students and our administrators.

Why does ASB raise funds?

California law allows students in California's public schools to raise money and make decisions about how they will spend this money.  Student organizations that are established to raise and spend money on behalf of the student body are called Associated Student Body organizations, or ASBs, which are made up of students across all grade levels.  The funds that are raised and spent by student organizations and ASB are called "ASB funds" or student body funds.  ASB events and the management of ASB funds present students with opportunities not only to raise and spend money but also to budget funds, plan activities, and acquire leadership skills while making a contribution to their school and fellow students. 

What are ASB funds used for?

ASB funds are used for student activities and expenses that the students decide on. There are many student activities including: Homecoming game and dance,  lunchtime events, assemblies, incentives for student contests, staffing for school events, and concessions for sale during athletic games.

Student Clubs
Students who attend Hamilton High School have many activities and groups to join that suit a variety of interests. Under the purview of our Associated Student Body (ASB), there are dozens of clubs and organizations operating, and if a student wants to start their own club they are encouraged to do so. The clubs are categorized as Cultural, Leadership, Identity, Hobby, and Community Service clubs. Some of our clubs include Black Student Union (BSU), Latino Student Organization (LaSO), Desi/ASA, Jewish Club, and GSA.
 
Academically, there are clubs of interest such as Robotics, Girls in Stem, Economics Club, Psychology Club, and Penn Model Congress, in addition to our Academic Decathlon team. Community Service clubs have held fundraisers and collect donations and bring awareness to causes of concern. There are also ways for your voice to be heard through activism with such clubs as Students Deserve and WOC for Activism. Students at Hamilton are very active in making our school community as well as society as a whole a better place. We do all of this as One Hami!
