A Message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the Hamilton Community Schools website. I hope you find the information on the website helpful. Hamilton has two excellent schools; Hamilton Elementary, and Hamilton Jr. /Sr. High School.

Hamilton Community has a long tradition of academic excellence. In fact, Hamilton Elementary 3rd graders achieved a 100% passed rate on the Indiana’s   I-Read test again this year. Hamilton has had many state Academic State Championship Teams in the past twenty years. This further demonstrates our students can compete successfully against the highest achieving students throughout Indiana.

We are proud of our 1-1 technology program where all K-3rd grades students utilize iPads daily in their classrooms. The 4-12th grade students are assigned a laptop computer for use at school and home.

If you are looking for a school system that has high academic standards, small class sizes, a dedicated staff, and an innovative technology program I encourage you to contact our school to learn more about transferring your children to Hamilton.

You can reach our central office at 260- 488-2513 to make an appointment and become part of the Hamilton family.

Summer Slide

Avoid the summer slide and keep kids reading! 

It may be summer vacation, but kids need to keep learning. Annually, students who don't read over the summer lose an average of 22% of their reading levels.  It can take 2 months of school in the fall to get that back, leaving many behind.  Kids in grades K-2 should read 20 minutes a day, kids in 3-8 should attempt to read 4 books at their level to stay where they are. 
The High School library will be open EVERY TUESDAY this summer from 9:30-11:30. 

Here are also some free opportunities online to read... Clicking the IMAGES will get you to the various sites. 




The state of Indiana has provided free access to a summer reading program online.  The site requires login information.  For School:  Hoosier Family of Readers   Username:  read  password: read




Hear celebrities read aloud children's favorites!







We give books--- read books online and the website will donate books to children in need. The primary focus now is donating to Moore, OK to rebuild the school library.








International Children's LIbrary offers a large collection of stories from around the world.  







Story time for me are colorful children's stories.







Sync audio provides two free YA titles each week on audiobook all summer. You can sign up for free text alerts and emails to notify you of the new title. One is a newer release, the other a classic title.  


Indiana Department of Education is now making NBC LEARN K-12 a part of its digital offerings! Now all middle and high schools will be able to access thousands of high-quality archival, original, and currents events videos from NBC LEARN K-12 for use in classroom instruction, student projects, and homework.


 Reading Glue is focused on providing parents with simple, yet powerful, tools to improve their child's reading ability. Best of all, it is currently free. Please help spread the word to parents, and have them check it out. They are currently asking for critical feedback from users so they can improve the site and provide the most value to parents. Thanks for your support!
