The Hamilton Humanities Magnet is recognized for its 41 years of academic excellence. Established in 1981 to address the inequities caused by segregation, the Humanities Magnet offers an interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum that focuses on literature, philosophy, history, art, and social sciences. Our magnet emphasizes activities designed to strengthen a student’s cultural literacy, critical thinking, and their ability to articulate complex ideas.
As a college preparatory program, we have high expectations for our students. Magnet core classes are taught on the Honors or AP level and we apply the Gifted rubric for Differentiated Instruction to our classes. In addition, we provide a small school experience of individualized attention from teachers and our own counselor while also providing the benefits of a large comprehensive high school such as a board and varied athletics program, numerous clubs and organizations, and diverse elective choices.
Our emphasis on a rigorous curriculum has led many of our students to be able to attend prestigious universities that include Harvard, Stanford, Brown, UC Berkeley, UC Los Angeles, and various small liberal arts schools throughout the nation.
The Humanities Magnet has a 100% graduation rate.
