HAMILTON FOOTBALL MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Hamilton Football Program is to DEVELOP our adolescent
young men and women physically, socially, and academically.
We will use football as a platform to develop life skills such as
teamwork, trust, discipline, commitment,
accountability, edification, and relationship building.
We will use service as a program and develop the leadership in our players
to make our community and school a better place.
We will hold each other accountable, both on and off the field, and
represent our school with pride, class, and dignity.
We will come together as a family, to celebrate our successes and
to support each other during difficult times.
By doing this, our student athletes will be better prepared
for success after high school.
Hamilton High School opened in 1998 with 1,600 students in freshman through junior years, in a still agricultural area on the edge of the city. It was named after the Hamilton family, one of the pioneer families of Chandler, who farmed the land where the school now stands. John Augustus Hamilton was a World War I combat veteran and sheriff of the southeast area of Phoenix. The school's football stadium now stands on what was known for years as Hamilton's Corner, the corner of Arizona Avenue/Arizona State Route 87 and Ocotillo, where the Hamilton's ran a general store.
Most of the school is housed in a two-story enclosed structure, which increases safety and provides protection from the hot weather in summer. Classrooms and primary facilities are located on one of eight main hallways, each of which has its own staircase and which also connect to the library, administrations office, cafeteria, gym, and auditorium. Both the library and the swimming pool are also city facilities.
The campus was originally built to hold 2,600 students; as of 2 October 2017, there are 3,740 enrolled. The auditorium and cafeteria each seat about 600 students, the gym seats about 1,900, and the football stadium seats 10,000. In addition to the swimming pool, the school also has a track, ten tennis courts, two soccer fields, and six fields used for baseball and practice.
A second building accommodating twelve freshman- and sophomore-level classes was completed in September 2014.
Hamilton High School's football team won Arizona Division 5A State Championships in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012 (Division I). Hamilton had a 53-game winning streak until losing to Phoenix Desert Vista at the 5A state championships in November 2011. Learn More
