Alexander Hamilton High School Academy of Music is a magnet school on the Westside of Los Angeles, California, USA. The Music Academy gained national attention in June 2002 when the Disney Channel premiered the reality TV show "Totally in Tune" which chronicled members of the Academy's Symphony Orchestra as they struggled to cope with the demands of being a student, a musician, and a teenager in and out of the concert hall.

What makes the Academy of Music unique from other high schools is that it offers a large array of classes and programs in music and other performing arts. Hamilton Academy of Music students take traditional high school classes, but are also enrolled in classes in the Academy's elective departments. The Musical Theater Department is amazing, these students are highly talented. The Drama Department is just as good, they are known for putting on plays that test the waters. Just last Fall, the students put on "Angels in America". The Dance Department is one of the best, there are two shows a year where the dancers get to showcase all what they have learned. You'll find that the alumni from Hamilton High School are a quite impressive group. Including:
*Lizzy Caplan, actress best known for her role as Janis Ian in 2004's "Mean Girls"
