Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year! As the principal of Hamilton High School, I feel very privileged to be part of such a prideful community. Together we will continue to have success as we strive to attain some ambitious goals. First, we must focus on having our students at school on time every day. Our attendance goal is to achieve a 97% attendance rate. We are also committed to reaching a goal of a 100% graduation rate. To accomplish this, we will be tracking students’ course credits and grades. The expectation is that no student fails a class this year. To assist this action, we will again have after-school tutoring Monday through Thursday this year. Although we have made progress with our discipline plan, we are still working towards minimal school suspensions. Through our new Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) or “The Bobcat Way”, we will be aiming for a record low suspension rate this school year. Finally, with the numerous clubs, sports, and elective courses offered to our students, we have set a goal in which all of our students participate in a program or course pathway that connects them to Hamilton High.
Hamilton High has an incredibly dedicated staff. The staff is committed to serving all of Hamilton’s students. In order to assist these passionate professionals and our kids, we must continue to build strong partnerships. It is through relationships, discipline, expectations, and accountability where we will improve on what is already in place. Great schools have parental involvement and support. With a partnership between school and home, our students will be on track for success towards graduation and career.
High school is a memorable time in everyone’s life, let’s all commit to making these memories successful, positive, and long lasting. We are all on the same team, but it will take every single one of us to move Hamilton High to its true potential, which is a school selected to be everyone’s “Premier Choice”!
