Welcoming and warm attitude and willingness to learn

I have a daughter in kindergarten and she has excelled with her learning. The class sizes are small in ratio to the teachers which involves more one on one learning. The projects sent home are very helpful in helping the children learn while having fun doing it not realizing they are learning. Safety is also a very top key issue at this school and is a very important factor also. Thumbs up to this wonderful school/

K is full time and that is the edge we believe our children need in today's society. In K the children learn to read, write and basic math skills. Our children thrived in the warm educational environment Hamilton Twp has created. The school is clean and every teacher knows my children's name. Very impressive!

My daugher has attended kindergarten and first grade at Hamilton Elementary. I have been very impressed with the quality of the academic programs, and the parent involvement at the school. The teachers and staff are caring and concerned. The curriculum rotates with Science, and Social Studies; while reading and math are daily subjects. 'Specials' are rotated on a six day cycle: Physical Education occurs twice every six days; art class is held once every six days, music class is held twice every six days; and library is held once every six days. The PTO is one of the more active in the area. Class size is about 16 students per teacher. Overall, I have been pleased with this school. Sadly, it does not go to third grade anymore, but only to 2nd grade. The growth in the area has caused a restructuring of the schools.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
