Thank you for your interest in the Hamilton Central School District.
On behalf of the school board, administration, faculty,staff, and students of our district, I want to welcome you to our district and encourage you to learn more about what makes Hamilton Central School such an incredible place for students to grow and learn, and professionals to live out their noble goals. You may also find out why our Junior Senior High School is among the best in New York State.
Our website is designed to be an easy reference for you to learn about our school community. Along with stories about the many accomplishments of our students, teachers, and faculty, you will find information about all aspects of our learning organization. This website is also the gateway to explore the digital pages of our various programs that we offer for students, families and community members. Our electronic “tour” through our website is a quick way to learn about our school community. I also encourage you to visit us and see the many things that are happening on a daily basis here at HCS.
I am excited to be here and welcome you to the district. We will continue to build upon, and introduce the kinds of learning experiences that produces highly literate, articulate, numerate, critical thinkers who can identify and solve complex problems in an ethical and just manner.
Parents, teachers and students, ALL IN for the Emerald Knights!
