From the Principal’s Desk

Dear Hamilton Community,
My passion for education comes from believing that every student has a unique and brilliant gift within them. Since coming to Hamilton, my team has boldly committed to advancing educational equity for all learners at Hamilton, growing Hamilton into becoming an International Baccalaureate Candidate school for all students.
I am also a firm believer in the transformative power of teacher leadership in schools. Hamilton has launched a nationally-recognized teacher leadership program and won a major grant to infuse more technology into learning and teaching, in fact providing every student with a new Chromebook and home internet access.
Moreover, Hamilton has vastly expanded the supports for “The Whole Child,” as I believe that middle school is as much about academics as it is about social-emotional development. Because of this, Hamilton offers a full staff of school counselors, a community liaison, social workers, and a team of “scholar advisors,” all working each day with our middle school community. As a reflection of Hamilton’s commitment to the Whole Child, students have already earned over 900 “positive office referrals” in this 2017-18 school year, a practice my team started to recognize positive leadership aligned to our vision for the Hamilton academic community.
We welcome you to explore your world and define your future as part of the community of Hamilton Middle School. #HMSHuskyStrong
