Campus Goals

Students' academic performance and achievement level will reflect excellence in learning and attainment of both high expectations and high standards.

Students' behavior will exemplify the skills, attitudes, and/or practices characteristic of productive, community-minded adults: citizenship, self-esteem, respect for others, accountability for actions, and healthful lifestyles.

 

Vision Statement

Hamilton Middle School will provide a nurturing yet challenging atmosphere that meets the varied developmental needs of middle school students.  As a learning organization, Hamilton teachers and staff will strive to create a distinctive and quality learning environment based on rigor, relevance, and relationships at the highest level to promote growth and learning opportunities.  Collaboration between all stakeholders will be required to foster a spirit of discovery, innovation, and real-world connections.  Hamilton Middle School will provide multiple opportunities for students to acquire the necessary academic skills to prepare them for high school and beyond.  In addition to imparting knowledge to our students, Hamilton will emphasize higher-level thinking skills and decision-making skills; we will instill in our students the qualities embodied by REAL: respect, excellence, accountability, and leadership.  We seek to encourage intellectual curiosity and an awareness and appreciation for our diverse cultural backgrounds, and a spirit of community service.  Our goal is to prepare Hamilton students to become productive citizens of the 21st Century.

How We Got Our Name

In 1992, former Assistant Superintendent for Special Services, Opal Hamilton, was honored by Cypress-Fairbanks I.S.D. with the naming of Hamilton Intermediate School, at Kluge and Grant Roads, for her exemplary service to the district.  Mrs. Hamilton served Cypress-Fairbanks I.S.D. for twenty-five years as a Vocational Adjustment Coordinator, Director of Special Education and Assistant Superintendent.

Hamilton Intermediate operated as a 6th grade campus for three years under the leadership of Sue McGown.  It was then renamed Opal Hamilton Junior High and transitioned into a 6th/7th grade campus during the 1995-1996 school year. The following school year completed the full transition to a 6th, 7th and 8th grade campus.  The school is now known as Hamilton Middle School.
