Hamilton High School is a public high school located in Chandler, Arizona, the second of five in the Chandler Unified School District. First opening its doors in the 1998-99 school year to relieve the growing enrollment of Chandler High School, it has since become the largest high school in the state of Arizona with over 4,000 students.
Though the program struggled to find success initially, Hamilton has now become a regular presence at the State competition since 2004, first breaking through to the top ten in 2010 with a 5th-pace finish in the state. Led by Stephen Bergauer, their first student to score over 9,000 points and the eventual co-founder of Decademy, the team repeated their success with a 6th-place finish in 2012, and since then have stayed consistently in the top six of the state. 2016 saw the team reach an unprecedented new level of success with their first-ever Regionals title and a 2nd-place overall finish at State, both feats they repeated again in 2017 and 2018. 2019 was their first ever 1st-place overall finish at State, ahead of CDO by only 9.1 points. In 2020 the school once again achieved a 1st-place overall finish at state, once again ahead of CDO.
As of 2020, Hamilton holds the Arizona record for the highest number of students who have scored over 9,000 with six.
