Hamilton E/M School will cultivate a diverse and academically accomplished, artistically skilled, and scientifically minded student body possessing the habits of mind and traits of good character necessary to succeed in the most competitive institutions of secondary and higher education.
Hamilton Elementary/Middle School is a public school that serves approximately 650 students in the northeast section of Baltimore, MD known as Hamilton Hills. While most of our students come from the surrounding community, a number come from neighboring communities and other parts of the city. We are part of the Baltimore City Public School System.
Hamilton has economically and racially diverse student population, and we seek to celebrate and recognize the strengths of that diversity while also meeting the challenges that come when persons from different communities and cultures come together in a common setting. We are also diverse in terms of ability. We have a large population of students with special needs and who speak English as their first language. We serve over 80% of those students in a full inclusion setting. As such we have cotaught classrooms at every grade level. Additionally, most of our students leave Hamilton to attend citywide Middle School and High School Programs targeting students from the gifted and talented population.
Our population reflects the urban setting in which we live and work, and while we face the same challenges as our peer schools we have met or exceeded state and federal measures of yearly progress and performance. More thatn 87% of our students score proficient or advanced in reading and mathematics on state exams.
