Welcome to Hamilton!
We are a Leader In Me school. This means that at Hamilton Elementary, our students experience joyful, healthy relationships in a learning environment with deep engagement. Students demonstrate ownership through feedback and goal setting. Our students develop portfolios in which they identify their WIG, (Wildly Important Goals).
Focus on the Whole Child
In our Leader In Me classrooms, our team places significant value on supportive environments. Team members provide students with strategies to be self-aware, describe their emotions to others, and create their class charters. Classrooms start the day with community meetings and end with optimistic closures. We also have counseling support services from Dayspring and Family and Children Services on site to support our students' mental and emotional health.
With our outdoor classroom space, students get to play musical instruments on an outdoor stage, build wooden crafts, and learn about nature by exploring rocks, creeks, and our planting garden. Hamilton teachers use the garden as a teaching environment for the students, where they participate in growing flowers, tomatoes, and squash.
