What's Happening?

A Message from the Superintendent

I would like to welcome you to the Hamilton Community Schools-Home of the Marines! I am excited to be a part of the Hamilton community. I come to Hamilton with experience at all grade levels from PreK-12. My previous experiences allowed me to teach at the classroom level in the elementary and high school. I have served various school corporations in northeast Indiana as a Director of English Language Learners, Title I Director, elementary principal, and high school assistant principal. I hold Bachelor and Master degrees from Indiana University (1998 and 2005). I also hold a superintendent’s license (EdS) and a doctorate (PhD) from Indiana State University (2010 and 2013).

At Hamilton, we pride ourselves on our family atmosphere. Our two schools, Hamilton Elementary and Hamilton Junior/Senior High School have a tradition of academic excellence. Our elementary school achieved 100% pass rate on the 2014-2015 IREAD test. Our high school participates in Academic Superbowl. Our fine arts team has been a champion or runner-up five times in the last seven years. 

Our fine arts programs are top notch. Our art students have won regional and national awards. Additionally they participate in collegiate workshops and participate in community service endeavors. Last year at ISSMA, our students received a gold rating. Our junior high and high school bands have a full performance schedule.


Hamilton offers a 1 to 1 technology initiative at all grade levels. Students in grades Kindergarten through Grade 2 use iPads daily in the classroom. Students in Grades 3-12 are assigned a Lenovo ThinkPad for use at home and school. Our school district is also committed to a quality education for our students and supports this through small class sizes. Average class size in Kindergarten through Grade 3 is 14 students. Students in Grades 4-6 experience an average class size of 14 students. Our junior and senior high school students are part of an average class of 27 students.



High school students have numerous opportunities to participate in educational opportunities to prepare them for life after high school. Students participate in career and technical education opportunities at IMPACT Institute. Hamilton Community Schools also partners with Trine University in Angola and Ivy Tech in Fort Wayne to provide dual credit opportunities in Advanced Math, Algebra, Biology, Composition, Literature, Psychology, and Speech. Additionally, our school corporation partners with the Northeast Indiana Special Education Cooperative to offer services to students with special needs. Our students also participate in programming with the IMPACT Institute. Course offerings include marine and auto mechanics, welding, cosmetology, and culinary arts.

Our administrative team believes education is all about the people. Developing positive relationships with students, teachers, parents, and community members will allow us to educate our students with rigor and relevance; our students will be successful in the 21st Century. Ensuring a safe, secure, and positive learning environment, as well as providing students with opportunities to develop their talents through extra-curricular participation, will only enrich student life at Hamilton.


Please contact a member of our administrative team at Hamilton Community Schools to learn more about the exciting opportunities we offer. We set the bar high for academic achievement and work with each student and family in order to meet individual needs so that your student receives the BEST education in Northeast Indiana.

You may reach central office at 260-488-2513 to learn more about becoming a part of the Hamilton family.


Educationally yours,

Dr. Nicole L. Singer
Superintendent
