Located entirely in Adirondack State Park, Hamilton County is famous for its amazing views and pristine vistas. Mostly publicly owned parkland, the county offers abundant outdoor activities from skiing to backpacking to golfing. With many people being summer guests, the residential population of Hamilton is smaller than most counties in New York State, giving its schools a small town feel and an individualized education. The splendor of the Adirondacks often becomes the classroom for students in this county and curriculum includes environmental science, local history and many other useful topics to challenge and enhance children's lives. Community pride and loyalty are felt at but also a friendly place to live.
