The Year in Review
Our Graduation stats are strong (see below). Our students went to Calculus Camp, Pen Model Congress and the United Nations.
We raised money to keep us going another year.
Our students performed at the Hollywood Bowl, The Rose Bowl Parade, Disneyland,
Our Lady of Angeles, Next Generations Monterey Jazz Festival, the Pantages and of course,
the Academy of Awards.
We were written up in the LA Times, Hollywood Reporter and Hollywood Register. Students were interviewed for NPR, KTLA and 93.7, Hot Jam.
The Academy of Music has a waiting list and we hope to enroll as many students as possible.
We're excited about next year--starting our own record label introducing Arabic as another language and producing the same quality of performances you have all come to love,
We had a good year and hope for an even better one next year. So rest up and have a terrific summer.
The best of all!
For the class of 2014, we have a 99% graduation rate.
100% of those graduating have post secondary plans and
78% were accepted to 4year colleges. Good work one and all!
Our offices are closed from June 12-July 29.
Don't be frustrated of we don't call you back. We are on vacation! Hope you are too.
Incoming 9th grade and students new to the Academy: Orientation on August 7, at 9:am in the auditorium.
Hollywood Reporter names The Academy of Music at Hamilton one of the top ten drama schools!
That would be in the whole country. We are in the top ten. Check out the May 28 edition of the Hollywood Reporter.

Norm Pattiz Concert Hall

The 700-seat Norman J. Pattiz Concert Hall was dedicated at Hamilton High School Academy of Music in Los Angeles in February 1989.
