Hamilton High School Memphis is among the top failing high schools in the state. It’s just that simple. Of the 935 students presently enrolled, said U.S. News and World Report, only 7.8 are deemed “college-ready.” Only 38 percent are proficient in English and 31 percent are proficient in Algebra.
No measure of school spirit can change those numbers. Until now, that is. School spirit is exactly what’s going to change those numbers, members of the alumni association said.
