“I wouldn’t want to be at any other high school than at Hamilton District Christian High. I love it here. When I came to HD in September 2012, I knew that high school was going to be a good experience, but I didn’t know that it was going to be absolutely amazing. Since I’ve started high school, I’ve made new friends, learned new things, and I’ve grown a lot—emotionally and spiritually.
HD is definitely a place where you can find your place and belong, because we know who we are in Christ. We know that we belong to Him. We are accepted, chosen, and loved by Him and I see that every day. I know that I will look back on my high school experience and say, “Those four years were spent well.” TIOLUWANI
